World-famous French Canadian multimedia artist and my best friend Laura Rokas took these photos of my friends and me between 2014 and 2015 when we were roommates in Ghosttown and North Oakland. I found them again the other night in some old emails she had sent me back then. I went through them all and felt like crying. That was the golden era of Oakland. I miss these people and that time in my life so badly. Maybe I’ll never get over it.
