Photo of the Day #2569

I haven’t seen Faye in more than a year. The last time we talked, I think, was on the drive back from a game night at Clara’s, when Faye told me about the Master’s program she was about to embark on. She’s finished with that now, looking for a place to start working, and today she collected some friends together for a pasta-salad birthday picnic.

Tristan showed us how to crack a whip, demonstrating with a blue nylon one he’d made himself as a Christmas gift for Faye. He wore safety goggles when he used it, and when the tip shattered the sound barrier it reverberated across the neighborhood like a gunshot.

I climbed some trees and boulders, saw some friends and soaked in some conversation – a good afternoon. Let’s hope it’s less than a year before the next party like this.

I want so badly to believe
