Some people collect dust like photographs.
Not from stillness, but instead, from the walking to, hiking in, and pressing through dusty and not-often-traveled places. I've known Adam for my whole life, and all the time I've known him he's sought those places out. He is a student and lover of, and participant in, stories, and he gathers dust in a thoroughly active manner.
I met Annett almost a year ago now, and everything she says and does testifies to a similar nature - the type that wants to put footprints in new places. She is joyful, kind, and gentle, and she's got a wild sort of light in her.
On New Year's at sunrise, Adam and Annett promised to go places together from now on.
