my sister. we haven't seen each other since christmas. since we both went off to college, our talks and visits have grown further apart. before that, she practically lived with me at uga. we've become different people, i think. she's grown up. i don't recognize her sometimes, literally. the most changing she's done has been from the inside out. i tiptoed around the conversation when i came out to her, afraid of her reaction, worried that the past few years of separation might become permanent. she'd said homophobic things in my presence in the past, we'd grown apart a bit, for the first time in 20 years. it scared me. i cried through her entire response, which happened to be the sweetest words i'd heard in years. my heart has always swelled with more pride for her than i could keep inside. today i i feel like i need more hearts, a bigger soul, another me, to contain all the love and respect i have for my family and friends. we are long overdue for something fun. maybe six flags is calling our names. it is now open on the weekends. yeah. six flags.
