Everyone has one. The bosom friend who lives away, the one you only see a few times a year but it’s as if nothing has ever changed.
Although you’re religious with e-mails, you wish you could dish over coffees together. For Christmas list, we recommend A Year of Mornings: 3191 Miles Apart, a photographic collaboration by two women, one in Portland, the other in Maine, who met in the blogging world and embarked on a year-long project, each taking one photograph every morning. The result is a collection of simple and beautiful images like a bowl of fruit, a child’s braid or a pair of sandals that allowed the two of them to connect at the start of each day while still being miles apart.
