Thank you to everyone for your condolences. I feel very much supported by all of you. I'm very sorry that I cannot respond individually at this time.

I'm having a difficult time coming up with different titles for this series.

My first thought upon seeing this image was "Yum!" I like the different textures: smooth water in foregrouond, foamy ocean coming in, roughness of the rocks, puffy clouds.
