In memory of Ajay Tao


Have you ever met Ajay Tao in the blogosphere?

I’ve met Ajay at the beginning of my blogo-journey and enjoyed his comments on my blog: always kind, encouraging and very thoughtful.

I used to follow Ajay’s blogs, including his last one – AjayTao Botanical Photography. However a year ago Ajay’s beautiful posts stopped appearing in my ‘feed’ as he passed away in August last year after a prolonged battle with cancer.

Dear Ajay. Even though you are no longer with us, your kind words are still warming my heart and your beautiful images bring joy to my eyes. Rest in peace…



They have no mouth, but seem to speak
A thousand words so mild and meek.

They have no eyes , but seem to see
And bury thoughts into me…

  4. It leaves a sad silence…but he always gave a beautiful music in his words…something to hold and remember the love that he shared by just being himself.
    I only knew him for a very short time, but his energy was always very clear and made it a pleasure to read the energy that his words came from.
    Thanks Otrazhenie, remembrance has a special place in the heart of those that are touched, and Ajay touched many.
