Mum’s photographs while recovering from depressive episode

Jan 06, 2022 - Tom Roche

Mum was quiet on the drive up.
But smiled when she saw the trees
And the dogs

I wondered if she wanted to make some pictures
On my iphone
To take her mind off the trauma
and depression.

Her first picture was hesitant
But she smiled, and
Saw things in the forest that i didn’t
Heard things that i didn’t

16 pictures of
Grief,
Recovery
Love
Motherhood
Healing
