And life and love and peace are all new born. ~Alice Freeman Palmer.

Still symbolic for Easter originally I had wanted to post this on Good Friday.
While this is Easter Sunday for many, there are others who will have Easter next Sunday.

The Orthodox Easter is celebrated next Sunday; but thank you for sharing in the joy of your sisters and brothers of the Western Church, who celebrate the risen Lord today. This is a powerful image today, and a reminder of how the tomb could not hold him. Eirene.

@amin: Thank you Amin for your kind words. I know what you mean about the contrast. I could have gone heavier, it is an image that had many options to go with. Thanks.

You must have held this one back to post for Easter. So appropriate. The monochrome gives it a timeless appeal.
