I've been working on this mosaic for five months. I took my time, also because I didn't want to finish it too soon, since this was a way for me to process my bottomless sadness over having lost Loki, my beloved dog. Today, I am still tearful when I think about how much I miss him. As I write this, tears are rolling down my cheeks. But I know we will be together again. This is my message to him as I light his candle. I wanted this little picture on the left to be appeasing, ethereal, but instead, it looks like a party is going on, like at a fairground, only in the beyond. There is something almost gypsy-like about it. Death, loss... and merriment.
I'm so grateful I got to see Loki again a number of times in my dreams and I will surely see him many times more until the final dream, the one we don't wake up from, and I will follow him on the gypsy fairground in between the caravans and all the good smells.
Here is the mosaic, waiting to be printed and put on my wall:
I will now go into the details.
This pictures my home in The Beyond .
