My sister Kim is awesome!
She’s my Super Hero!
My crazy-wonderful, creative,-soul-full,
funny, kind, adventurous playmate and best friend.
We’re so lucky to have found each other
after years and years and years apart!
She’s become a huge part of my life…
and a constant, loving presence in my heart.
So, maybe, you can you imagine how excited I am
to be off to visit her again?
Springtime is just arriving in the Sierras.
Last week they had a spot of snow on the peaks
on the same day
Tucson was experiencing
95 degree heat!
I’m off to celebrate:
and velvet-grassed mountains
a hundred shades of green!
The days will race by…
putzing in the garden…
playing fairy sisters…
and reading kids books
to each other
until we’re overcome
by “nap fever”…
Just two sisters getting into all the mischief we can muster together!
poking around in magical realms
of toadstools and fairies,
and Hobbit houses.
With a lot of just plain goofiness & joy mixed in!
While we spend hours weeding & planting in the garden,
we’ll be talking about
our special dream
of somehow, some day
buying a funky old camp trailer
so we can go rambling around together
from sea coast to Yosemite
(and all points of adventure in between!)
And, whatever we’re doing–
making art, foraging by the river, celebrating sweet niece Michelle’s birthday–
we’ll be talking and laughing
for hours and hours
’til our tummies ache
and we’ve had a least three bouts
of shared tears.
Because I’ve finally learned that
a strong, independent, capable
“who don’t need no help”
(thank you very much),
So off I go…
back in Tucson late on the 24th–
just in time to share all my adventures
with our amazing art-journaler’s circle on the 25th.
Thanks dear sister tribe,
for keeping the Cottage infused with love and creativity
while I’m away.
Thanks to Judy and Sarah for holding fun classes in my absence.
Thanks to Karen Z & Susan for helping keep WildHeart afloat (and my sweet critters lavished with love!)…
But, most of all,
thanks to my Beloved Albert for EVERYTHING—
for being well enough for me to take this break
and for being
the dear sweet brave funny old garden gnome
that I love so much.
Off I go (hi-ho, hi-ho)…
with sooo many cool stories to share
and so much sister love in my heart
that I’ll have plenty to share
with you when I get home!
Take Good, Gentle Care Of One Another,
Love from Kaitlin, Sister of Kim
