weekly photo challenge – fleeting

gothenburg tram

This is a photo that I took last year in August when visiting my old home city Gothenburg, Sweden.

Was walking back “home ”after a girly night out – and I just took up my little camera to take of photo of one of the cities many trams and it just departure from the stop.

    • Dallas, thank you so much – had a pleasant weekend with friends … and this afternoon will I go back to mom’s place and start the practical works. Tomorrow meeting with the undertaker.
      Just need to clear my head from thoughts, so I decided to put out and entry to the photo challenge.

    • Bob, thanks …. had a really good weekend with friends – but back at moms and the feelings aren’t the best just now. Tomorrow, the undertaker.
      Thanks for your support .. *smile

  5. Don’t feel that you have to answer. Just thinking of you and about what you have ahead of you…it is not easy. I have always enjoyed your photos when you have been out. Perfect photo of fleeting. Life is fleeting and I have to say that I think you have taken full advantage of every moment of life. You are a great example of all of us. Hugs and warm thoughts to comfort you through a very hard time in your life. Karen

    • Karen, thanks for your thoughts and kind words – can never get too many. I’m doing okay – but today the practical stuff starts with meeting up with the undertaker. So true, if there is anything that is truly fleeting is it LIFE. The consolation in all this is that it was mom’s choice to leave – she was tired of everything and she knew I will be fine on my own now.
      I was lucky that I had my mom for so many years.
      Karen, thanks again for your thoughtfulness and warming words.

  6. I love photos that are spontaneous and turn out perfectly like that! I love this photo.. I’m playing catch up with blogs.. I see that you’re going through a difficult time, I can’t tell you how sorry I am to read this, Viveka! Sending you hugs! xx

    • Barbara, thank you so much for your support and comfort – posting a post is about what I’m able to concentrate on just now … so restless for the moment, even if I sleep very well … I take all the hugs I can get – so thank you so much. *smile
      Mom was old and tired, it was her choice to leave – and that is a massive comfort for me.
      Thanks for caring.

  8. V, I’m so sorry about your mom. I love your post. The picture was perfect, and I loved the music as well. Perfect! My thoughts and prayers are with you. Marsha 🙂

      • Any time you need more kind words, I have lots of those. I found myself relieved of the constant worry I had for my mom, so it was like losing my best friend and guidance counselor, but also my biggest concern because she was in very bad health. I never felt an overwhelming sadness, surprisingly. I think she was able to leave so much of herself with me that she is always there, just living elsewhere right now. So if you ever need to chat my email is tchistorygal@gmail.com.

      • Thank you so much for your support … and for your email address – so thankful and happy over your friendship. I have been quite spared from grief – I lost 3 friends in the Tsunami … and lost my first boyfriend at age of 21, otherwise has grief been more expectable when it comes to high ages when dear ones has left me.

      • Viveka, our lives have moved across similar paths. I did lose my first husband when he was 47, and his sister when she was 35, but I had grandparents and great-grandparents who lived into my adult life. I am very happy to have met you and become friends with you as well. I look forward to talking to you more. 🙂 Have a nice day. 🙂 Marsha

      • 47 far too young, that isn’t fair – not easy to except that young people dies – when somebody dies of old age I except it – becuase it’s the circle of life.
        This friendship goes both ways. Have pleasant day yourself too. No sun here today. *smile

  9. Lovely shot Viveka! So sorry to hear about your mom. Even if they’re tired and it’s their time, it still hurts when they leave us. My thoughts are with you.
