Photo taken by contributor nomaggsrush, a woman currently living near Reading UK, however, she shall soon be “going nomadic” in retirement. She has had unipolar depression since her late teens, possibly due to a gene and a personality disordered mother. Unfortunately due to a couple of events (not due to her mother) she also has had PTSD for 18 years. She has spent her working life as a dual registered general and mental health nurse. She has a particularly warped sense of humour, like most nurses she has encountered – her first date with her late husband (a fireman) was spent trying to top each other’s gory experiences. He won.
About this photo: “Parasols is about the adventure of travel and hope for the future. Barcelona is the most amazing city with sculptures and art works every few steps. It is on my list of favourite places to revisit.”
