    "Jena didn't want to part with her One Step Polaroid, but I insisted since she was at the convention with a table that she had to make me a deal. I only had the money I got from pawning my antique vacuum, so I told her we had to work something out. She had a whole box of them too, which made it odd just how emotional she got when it came down to parting with them. She told me that the quality from the film wasn't the greatest but it conveyed a certain feeling not achieved by modern digital cameras. I detected a Pennsylvania accent so we talked about life in the countries largest commonwealth and how the beer distributors suck, and how much better LA is. She's a unique individual inside and out, and she's cool not because she's met Bam Magera, but because she sees life one frame at a time."

    "jena and i first met on the scratchy surface of an old polaroid. walking her little faerie dog there on an incredibly long and thin white leash, she gave me a sudden smile. in beguiling whispers, she then introduced me to her brightly coloured world. she told wonderful little stories that raised everyday life to dream-like scenes of seldom beauty.
    she wears a star on her feet and the sun in her mouth. and there’s a palm tree island named after her (at least the palm hearts carry her name).

    when i speechlessly gazed after her delicate shape and the snow flake attached to the leash’s other end, i felt that both of them had wings."
