Personal Update

I wanted to thank everyone for their kind emails, calls and voicemails this past week or so as my husband fell ill quite unexpectedly and then passed away at the hospital on June 6th. I can't imagine life without him and the past few days, after the funeral, have been so very quiet and lonely around the house. I am so thankful to have my four fur babies here with me. What will be hardest on me is Thursdays. That's the day I would pick up our little Gigi, bring her home for a snack and cartoons and then her Pops and I would take her to dinner. We all loved it and now I don't quite know what to do with my Thursdays. Gigi and I will have to find our way for sure. She is too young to know what's going on, but she keeps looking for him and that just breaks my heart. So again, thanks for all the prayers and support my wonderful friends, families and customers have offered up on my behalf.

That all being said...I need to keep busy and do need to support myself. So if you are needing a session please feel free to go ahead and book that. I will bring my "A" game and I really do love what I do and want to return to it.

Steven Zaragoza 5/9/54 to 6/6/08

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

-W. H. Auden
