'The distance between everything'
-Mom's picture from the 70's when we were living on the island of Guam turned rusty-like the colors just drained out.
The dyes that made up the color paper image degraded over time due to oxidation and light exposure.
The blue faded fastest followed by the green and red.
Like the colors I wonder what aspects of her culture were the first to 'fade' away from her.
Language? Food? Respect?
If I were to guess I think it all just degraded at the same time.
