‘Natural Disposition’

“A whisper of the changing season blows across my skin. The nights are growing longer now but with time and distance I have learned that friendships as real as these come as a second nature.”

When I was young I thought we’d never separate. As a child, you build friendships as if you are all one body; sharing breath, laughter and tears. When we first moved away to school I felt as if I had left a part of myself behind me, forgotten. I felt the nagging urge to buy the next train ticket to retrieve my missing pieces. We were all scattered with the wind, but the sun would always bring us back together. Flashes of the days and nights spent wild and carefree together over long hot summers reunited fill me. A whisper of the changing season blows across my skin. The nights are growing longer now but with time and distance I have learned that friendships as real as these come as a second nature. They are easy and light, fast to catch up to the very moment you are back together, laughing as if not a day has passed between you.Photographed by Asha Efia with models Deonna, Drielle & Moran of ONE.1, this editorial showcases the sweet and natural comfort of having your close friends around you.
