memories, pictures, lagos.

i think when i am away from home i do not know how to take pictures to document my journey. often in moments that i want to capture with my nikkon i wonder what image could depict emotions that never reveal themselves in a manner i can necessarily understand. i miss home yet i do not want to leave here. i am salsa dancing with my confusion of what to do with my life with a bright smile with teeth that my lips do not cover for five straight minutes. the longest smile i have had in months. i do not take pictures of my visit because i do not want to remember what i do not want to be a memory.
