Goodbye Mom

Autumn has left and winter has arrived here in Zion Canyon. This past month  has been a hectic one for my family and I, being that my mother passed away on November 13th. I recently returned from New Jersey after mourning her loss with my family and friends. MJ, Arielle, and I spent half of November with my mom during some of her last days. She was 61, nothing puts life back into perspective like funerals and the loss of a loved one. My mom was a simple and strong woman, her life was all about her 5 children and 3 grandchildren and taking care of my Father who has been paralyzed for the past seven years. Lately, I've been seeing her smile at me through the freshly fallen snow and color in the morning and evening skies.


Sunday, December 12 we will be having a Gallery Party between the hours of 4-8pm. Please join us for good company and beautiful art. I will be releasing 2 new images. As winter settles in we would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Holiday Season.

Kindest regards from Zion Canyon, David, MJ, Arielle, and of course Charlie Brown.



  1. Sorry to hear about your Mom. I was out in Zion doing some photography in early Nov. and stopped by your gallery. Now I understand why you were not around. I lost my Mom 3 years ago, and I think about her often during the long, quiet walks in the backcountry. Glad to have seen your images online, anyway - fantastic. I'm sure she was very proud of your work and passion. It seems the greatest gift we give our parents is to show them that we are happy in what we are doing in life - somehow they feel like they have done their job!

    Be well, Harry Lichtman

  2. Thank you for the kind words Harry. I couldn't agree more, especially now that I am a parent myself. What I want more than anything is to see my daughter smile and enjoy what ever it is she ends up doing in life.- David

  3. Hello David,

    Sorry to hear that your Mom is gone. I know how hard it can be because I lost my father on September 2009.
    They will be always in our life.
    I am glad to see your fantastic pictures.
    I wish to have a chance to come again to Zion and take some pictures at this beautiful place.

    Best Regards

  4. Thank you Beata. I agree, loved ones who pass will always be with us in Spirit. Hopefully we will meet again in Zion Canyon, it has a way of calling people back over the years. -DW
