Since Facebook does not allow images wider than a 3:1 aspect ratio (why?), it seemed natural to post this image here. I took these images during the Saturday night gala during Camp Widow 2011, then stitched them together using the open-source program Hugin.

So many awesome widowed people, all in the same room!

    Love it – I am so far in the back corner you will never see me lurking.

    It was so great to meet Ella finally and get to chat with you again. Wish I could have caught the infamous Sam.

    Big Love, Pappa!

      I don’t think I ever saw you that night–I got there late and was looking for a place to sit! My brain is still fogged but soon I want to collect some of my post-camp thoughts and talk to you about workshop ideas! <3

    Jay, Cool photo. Glad you could go to Camp Widow. What a journey in life widowhood is. Both incredibly painful and for me at least very transformational. Thanks for sharing your thoughts in blog form…

      Thanks, Patrick! Wow, “painful and very transformational”–doesn’t THAT just sum it up perfectly! Thank you for reading!

      If you are considering going to Camp, I whole-heartedly recommend it. There is something “transformational” (ha) about being in a room with almost 300 people who ALL “get it.” We’ve all had different journeys, to be sure, but that common bond and shared experience is… amazing. I may have hundreds of widow-friends on Facebook, but getting to meet so many of them in one place at one time, wow.

      Thanks again for reading and commenting!
