The memories of your presence in this space were almost too much to bear.
Every corner, every inch of this island held a piece of our togetherness, your hand touching mine, your kisses on my lips. Even through the scent of the exotic flowers, I could still smell you, feel your strength, envision your powerful stride. Losing you, so early in life, was just not fair. No matter how much I missed this place, our place, I should have never returned to Avalon.

This website and our company Avalon Media are named after the Island of Avalon, of the California Coast. The above image is a digitally altered photography of the island, with the intent of giving it a vintage feel. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been to, the small Avalon holds the magic of the Mediterranean without ever having to leave the United States.
The above photograph is available on various applications, including Throw Pillows, Duvet Covers, Mugs and as a scarf, as well as framed art here.
This felt nice to read right after rewatching some Lost! Though that’s a different island. Good sentiments on what it means to stay.
minor typo – “too much to bare” – should be “bear”
oh, thanks for letting me know, I will fix that.
Now I have to watch Lost (don’t fault me, but I have never seen that show)
Makes me think of Arthur’s resting place. Sad and lovely.
Thank you hon!
What a sad story. Very well written though. Have a nice weekend!
Glad you liked it, Lexa.
Sad, but I liked it.
