Boyfriend and I are going to Brazil, and have been looking forward to this trip for months. But now that life feels so heavy due to the still unbelievable loss of our friend Steven, we don’t feel very much like anything at the moment. Yet we hear our beloved friend whispering: “You have to go, are you insane? You must enjoy every minute!”
So I find myself in the most bizar situation packing (even though I couldn’t care less about dressing up these days...), but must confess it feels therapeutic to do something stupid like piling summery dresses and pretending that matching nail polish is of utter importance. I have no idea what I’m doing, but at least fumbling with the camera, bothering about light and alignment are a distraction. Since we had no time to read anything about our destination, nor organize stuff, the only thing I know is that comforting friends await us: sun, rum, cheerful colors and more sun. And just to be stubborn I packed way too many heels too.
We are leaving with a sad heart, but we will do as Steven wanted: try to enjoy every single minute.
