Its some minutes after midnight here and so my 22th birthday begins and I am listening to Obel´s melancholical Riverside I should be dancing or smiling or singing or drinking or doing something like that what happy people do on their birthdays... When I was a child my birthday was always the best day in the year, even better than christmas, because it was always father-daughter-time. I always went to the seaside with my dad, picking poppys from the road (his fav flowers), wandering through the forest, opening special gifts and then making special polaroid photographs. I have 20 birthday Polaroid Photographs with my dad and me and now? No traditions anymore, no polaroids anymore, no new memories or experiences, everything is gone. I´m sitting here in front of my laptop, creating melancholical sets while I am wallowing in self-pity and grief and am left by my own what´s my on fault because I was too afraid to drive home for my birthday because of all the memories where my friends and family are waiting. Feels like I miss my dad today more then the last weeks, today of all days when I should be so damn happy. Thats why it calls happy birthday right?! Such events always remember me of the loss and I guess no matter how much I fight or want to move on I always will be thinking... what would my dad say now? Would he be proud? I just want to call him and hear his voice =( 
I hope later the birthday will be better. i´m invited for a dinner near the seaside, but its very rainy here. I hope for the best and I am ishing for the next age that I will find the strenght to let go.... Miss you daddy! Happy Birthday to me!!!

I feel your pain. The bond you had (and still have) with your father is remarkable and touching. I don't think you can move on unless you move on while acknowledging it. Don't worry about not spending your birthday in happiness - nobody said birthdays are supposed to be happy - it is what you make of it. I would think recalling all the memories you had with your dad is so precious and cannot be traded.

Submit any kind of set to this group, but remember the definition of haunting!
This group will have regular contests! Contest themes will be classically haunting! If you want to suggest a haunting contest topic send me a message and I will put the topic on the list!
Please note: Regularly creating haunting sets is required for getting invited / getting your application approved! from now on, if you do not create haunting sets your application will not be approved. If you have not made haunting art before but still want to join this team, make a haunting set before applying!
Also, sets blatantly not fitting the haunting theme will be removed from the group. But remember, dark does not always equal haunting and light can be haunting too!
