making photos of daily moments and writing about those daily moments that same day.
last year in france you got into the habit of being too busy. then in mali it just wasn’t possible when internet and electricity was an eight kilometer bike ride and a one hour bus ride away.
but today you decided you would photograph and write without a lag. which is why, right now at 11:31 PM, you refuse to go to bed just yet.
your day began with chocolate cake that you made the night before for breakfast.
you rolled out your favorite crust and poked holes all over it.
you mixed eggs, cream, milk, mustard, and herbs together.
and right now, you really need sleep.
other things happened, but not with a camera around. plus you’re tired.
so to leave you with a bambara blessing:
ala ka su here caya!
(may god increase the peace of your night)
