I haven’t been writing or posting, I’ve hardly been lifting my camera.

I’ve lost my two babies, my feline companions, both in just three short months. It has been a devastating period and my heart feels shattered into a million tiny fragments. They aren’t at the door to greet us. They aren’t warming our bed or helping us sleep with comforting purrs. The house feels empty without their huge combined, or singular, presences.

It would be easy to just quit the challenge of the 118 Photos in 2018, but I have fallen back and pulled a few photos from earlier months that fit some of the challenges, so I may yet finish. I am certainly not going to go back and post each and write about them individually, I don’t have that in me right now.

So here is a catchup compilation.
