Who knew that when I signed up for an online course I would meet a friend, not someone in passing, a true friend. We met in the the private FB group for the class and became fast friends. We corresponded first through FB and now by email and soon, I hope, by mail. She really inspires me through her life, her love of photography and her heart. When I write to her I feel as if I’ve known her a life time. When I see an email come in from her I get so excited. I feel like a young girl again getting a letter from my pen pal. I have the desire to run home, into my room and close my door so I can absorb what she has to say without interruption. We have recently started sharing photos with each other. A slice of life that isn’t so much about the technical side of the photo but instead something that comes from our heart. The photo represents a memory to us, a piece that shares a little story about who we are. We do this in our emails and I love it. These photos are an important part of our emails because, you see, we live in different countries and have never met.
