On My Mind Today Is Friends

I can't boast that I have lots of friends, but the friends I have made over the years have stayed with me forever.  This is me and Annie in a small village in Sapa.  Annie walked with me for two hours and didn't stop talking the entire time.  She took my hand when the going got tough, and she was weaving hemp string all the time.  We talked about our sons and sisters, her life in the village, the crafts she makes and she was always so happy and positive.  I love Annie, she is so beautiful.  I think of her often and hope that she is okay.  This photo makes me shed a tear of happiness and sadness, because I miss her.

  3. A lovely person like you is bound to find lovely friends like Annie on your journey through life.

    I am assuming from your comments that you two are not able to stay in touch. That is sad.
