Note from the editor. David regularly contributes to Theosophy Forward with wonderful photo series. His current contribution entitled “When things are not so good” will certainly make you think. David is skillful in catching very personal moments and loves to photograph people’s emotions of any sort. The five photos you are about to see represent instants when things are not so good, typically dealing with themes such as hopelessness, grief, care in times of need, human loss and remembrance. The photos are accompanied by quotations underscoring the moments caught on camera.

When someone you love becomes a memory...that memory becomes a treasure – unknown
It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being. – John Joseph Powell
A friend who dies, it's something of you who dies – Gustave Flaubert
It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. – Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy
