a place to belong

Saturday, January 11, 2014

This image is from a few months ago--lost on a roll of film I recently got developed. I scanned the film and remembered with such clarity taking the image. I was standing by a river and turned back around to where Julia and Ali were sitting. When I saw it I thought I could post it here with a little story I wanted to get down, so I don't forget it. 

I was in Powell's with Steele, looking for books, walking up and down the aisles. My phone rang with a call from Julia, which I answered. It took a second for us to get connected, and then all the sudden she was talking about her flight being delayed, and I was very confused, until I realized that the voice speaking was Ali. And then Julia and Ali were both talking, and we were all talking over each other, Ali and I not realizing for a moment that we were on a three way call. 

I was laughing--I was that person slouched against a bookshelf, making too much noise, with a phone pressed up against my ear. Both my best friends talking to me, and all three of us laughing. How strange a place to belong, on a three way call.
