I know what it means when I see a flower arrangement or a cross or other mementos beside a road or on a street corner, and it’s never good news. What I do not know is if that same thing applies here, to some flowers left along the canal.
In 2018, right along this part of the canal, there was an accident that left one man dead and another one (who tried to save the first man) severely injured. Shortly before our visit, the injured man and his family was awarded a large settlement in a civil case, so maybe these flowers have some connection?
And, on another note, today is 16 years since my beloved mom died, after a fall at her house. I never plan out my posts – they just land where they land – so how fitting that this image would land on this sad anniversary: the Universe was thinking about me. (Here’s what I wrote about my mom and her death. I still stand by every word of it.)
