thinking upon sisters
In writing my sister a letter this morning,
I was left with the thoughts of sisters.
What if we had another one?
What if we had 4 others like we do brothers?
What if my daughter had a sister?
She has 4 others who are brothers.
I think there is the beginning of a story.
I am reading Ann Patchett's new book
and it is a book of essays that have been
published in various magazines and journals.
I adore her writing!
The title essay is very good and not what I expected.
I hope to meet her one day because she has made me
laugh and made me think.
..... the story of my marriage, which is the great joy and astonishment of my life, is too much like a fairy tale, the German kind, unsweetened by Disney.”
