Shloshim (Thirty)

(click on images to enlarge)

Why Thirty?
30 days to make a habit.
30 days to break one.
They say that 30 days of practice can change you.

In the Jewish tradition, the number thirty marks a milestone in the long first year of mourning.
In Hebrew - the word is Shloshim.

Why Thirty?
30 days to breathe again.
30 days to begin again.
30 days to love again.
30 days to let go of a lifetime.

In memory of my mother and the garden that she loved.
for all that she didn’t see….and all that she so clearly did
