…to visit me. My sister Joanie from Oklahoma City came for a short visit to the workshop on Monday. What a joy! She drove up from LA where she was visiting with her husband who is on business there. Needless to say, we go back a long way. My life led me away from Oklahoma early on and I have not been the best "keeper- in- toucher" for many different reasons…however, two years ago, Joanie and I mutually decided to repair our differences. I found myself yesterday falling into my lil' brother role with her. As many of my women friends can attest…that lil' brother role does pop up now and then (Lovee Groove?)…family is such a rich dynamic… I am happy that Joanie and I can get together and love one another…I called my other sister when I got home yesterday…such bittersweetness……I feel blessed and at the same time regret the loss of some innocence along the way…I love my sisters. I want them to know that…..
