away

nantesi could be away for 4 months.

i could be away for 4 weeks.

i could be away for 4 days. 4 hours away. in nantes.

it doesn’t matter because i love returning to evreux. the train enters a dark tunnel and begins to slow down. that’s when i know it’s my cue to get up and get ready to step off the train.

and then i’m back. and i become incredibly happy because i miss evreux each time i’m away.

it’s my time for small moments. the library. going to a movie. doing laundry. writing. organizing. sitting at my desk. avoiding slipping on ice. buying a baguette. reflecting on quotes i like:

Je n’ai jamais bien cherché pourquoi j’ai fait des photos.  En réalité, c’est une lutte désespérée contre l’idée qu’on va disparaître. –Robert Doisneau

but rarely do i stay long - i’m off again, if the snow will let me leave tomorrow.

merry christmas in advance, wherever you are! and enjoy all those small moments.
