After a few months in the land of Widowland, I slowly awakened to the fact that I had work to do. The work was to get names on photos from my husband's yesteryear. Then followed stories to be related as well as I could manage. It turned out that decades ago, I had the foresight to have him help me label his photos he'd taken when his Air Force service took him to exotic places such as Africa and Turkey. He also had a side-trip to Greece. So I got busy finding a suitable album that would hold not only his Air Force photos, but pictures of his great-grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles and cousins. I found that as I placed these precious items in the album, I began my journey back to living without my partner. There are still times when I step back into that dark place, but most days I have activities for which I look forward.
