Let’s be close while we have to be far. Sounds sappy. But I don’t care.
I want to hug my friends so instead I FaceTime them. There’s never a really good way to sign off, not a wave, or a thumbs up, or a kiss. A good picture though. A Polaroid…
I’m as in love with Polaroid film as I am with my friends. Polaroid has a negative before you get the image, a beautiful, disappearing art object on our way to the positive.
This isn’t a hug and it isn’t a solution. But it’s a happy day with friends. Beautiful friends, a mom, a dog, a sky that could’ve rained but didn’t. We poured future memories of a day from a time we will all never forget when the days blurred together like raw honey.
