R & A -- Forever

I have taken many many pictures of Rachel and we've become friends.

I wear the slippers she knit me, play songs she's sung and eat jellies she's jammed. I like to sit back in awe of how strong and soft someone can be in one loving body. Last month she sent me the email below: 

"....On January 2nd, our second anniversary, I proposed to Adrian."  

"I shocked the hell out of him but I got a yes anyway.  Attached is the 
visual aid I labored over and used to get my wishes across...  While 
Mr. Perez responded in the affirmative, he was fairly speechless and 
so a week later, for good measure, he gave me a more clear and concise 
answer (also attached).  He made it while sitting in the parking lot 
of Joann Fabric's after getting the necessary supplies.  One of those 
images I'll forever treasure."

Congratulations R + A. Me love you long time.

Instantaneously Yours

Dear Jesus: Thank you for letting Mom draw my name for Christmas this year. Mom, this post is for you. 
I've been having so much fun with the Fuji Instax

 You have to get the hang of aiming this thing. The stock viewfinder is way off. I put up with it for a while but eventually made my own out of a pop can and duck taped it to the top. 





Thanks Mom!

I catch myself drifting a lot these days. Nice thing is, when I snap back to real time, I like where I am.  The next time you see a friend with "the distance" in their eyes, they might be orbiting somewhere between here and everywhere they've ever been. They'll be back.
