Time for a game! It's called "Spot the person who will become Alix's best friend." This week I am stealing a photo from my friend Alana, who hopefully does not mind it being posted here:


Not a very hard game, I realize. It also serves a duel purpose, as I can direct people to this picture when they give me gruff about my choices in friends...though, ironically, the person I will most likely be directing here is the guy captured so well in the photograph.

I love this picture, not just because of the subject matter, but because of the poor scanning. I love the fact that Alana didn't try to line it up perfectly, that there is dust, that the colours seem oddly washed out. For the five-year anniversary of our arrival in Freiburg, we all took time to post some of our favorite photos onto Facebook. I loved Alana's uploads because all the photos felt old. They weren't the perfect digital copies the rest of us had, (or the meticulously scanned photos I had), they actually had a dated quality to them. A sense of time passed. Five years isn't a long time, but a lot has changed since then.

I've settled into my friendships and sometimes it's great to be reminded of why they started up in the first place.
