Unsure of what to say, I have been withholding these photos for a few months now. While I was at it, these have been slowly accumulating digital mold from what seems feels like a lifetime ago. The unfortunate truth there is it has been a lifetime ago.
Two months after Miko’s passing, I find myself going back to the images from our last adventure. His last. Delicately editing each one past midnight (obviously suspending any progress on thesis,) I find myself in tears. Photo after photo, the overwhelming realization of how beautiful he lived his days engulfed me.
I didn’t know when I will ever be ready to share these with all of you, but I feel that it is time. Now is time. I owe this to the world. Every one of you deserve to see the magnificence he saw, the magnificence I saw with him, the beauty I saw through him, and the beauty that is him.
Describing his last days will not do justice, but it is in my sincerest hopes that these photos will. He lived his days full of Wonder, full of Love and full of Life.
Needless to say, it was perfect.
