The start of spring


Finally, at long last, spring is truly here.  And with the beginning of spring, as it has been every year for over twenty-odd years now, it's yet another year that Siri has been in my life.  I miss my sister, my funny little sister running in the rain in PDX.  Sister, you aren't so little anymore but you will always be the little one to me.  You will always be the one who takes too long, works too slow but creates and composes everything with such care and concern that it always turns out beautifully, perfectly crafted in the end.  You will always be the one who deserves the very best, brightest, newest, shiniest and I will always be proud of you.  Sister, we will see each other soon and eat all types of really bad things and tell stupid jokes about Seinfeld-ish nothingness.  You'll allow me to geek out about all the things that I hyper-obsess over, and I'll make sure mom and dad don't find out how many additional pairs of shoes you've added to your collection.  Meanwhile, take care of yourself because I / we can't - even though we love to boss you around - don't forget to do your laundry, and we will see you again very soon.  Happy birthday sister o'mine and don't forget, I love you.

  5. so sweet. i have an older brother but i always wanted a sister and envied sisterly bonds. older brothers can be cool but there is just something that's also very special between sisters that i've seen with friends that is just so beautiful to see. :)

  7. oh this is just so sweet. i was an only child until i was 18 - so i was just an only child. and i wanted a sibling so much! i always find it terribly sad (and strange) when siblings don't seem to get along or aren't close (it makes sense when there's big age gaps. but i am still really close with my much younger sister!). so now that i have multiple children of my own, it always just warms my heart when i see siblings so close and bonded. i hope they will have relationships with each other like you have with your sister. happy birthday to siri!

  15. Ah, happy birthday to Siri! Of course, by this time, it's more like a Very Merry Un-Birthday. In that, may the celebration just keep on, keepin' on . . .
