Wednesday Confession

My sister lives on an organic farm outside Sacramento, California. In the fall she's returning to school to study poetry at UC Davis. And even though I know she's happy and doing what she loves, I still miss her so much that I find myself wishing from time to time that she'd move back east. Other times I attempt to convince Rod to move to SF. (Still working on that one, actually... Part of me feels I'm destined to be a Berkeley girl.) Luckily, though, I'm going to get to see her for a few days before Burning Man.

The weirdest part about seeing her after a long absence is having driven home that my facial expressions and gestures and little tics aren't just my own. It's like looking in a fucking mirror sometimes.

Sometimes, when I answer the phone at my sisters, it's her husband, and he thinks I'm her. My sis and I do not look alike at all, but we have similar accents and mannerisms...and voices...

I love that photo by the way, very non-conformist! heh heh
