Today we went to the bookstore because school is out and we are home and we finally have time to do such things. We walked over to the travel aisle and sat down before the stacks of informational books. "Okay, where are we going?" I asked. We decided to go to Turkey and we proceeded to flip through the photographs of various "Turkey-themed" books, comparing images, pretending that they were real. After Turkey, we flew to China, and then to New Zealand. We discussed our longing to travel and, feeling much like giddy daydreaming little kids, we planned our lives and the adventures that we hope to fill them with. I had forgotten that we do this. There's nothing like reuniting with a best friend. The beautiful things that we ached to bring to life from the pages of those books, are what I hope to one day show to the world through my own photographs.
