~ HOLD MY HAND ~ 89/365

Explored #77

 

This is my submission for the Teleidoscopes Week #23 Hold My Hand. I figured I'd give it a try...even though I'm a few weeks late! This is a self portrait taken near Barber's Point.

 

THE CONCEPT

As the spirit leaves the body, there is a glimpse of life left that just wants somebody to hold their hand as they pass on. I dedicate this to my mom. She actually does this for older people with no family. She spends time with elderly people a few hours a week, so they don't have to die alone. She's the best! I hope someone does this for me when I'm old.
