I just got back from another creative weekend with my sister . I have to say my best times are times with her! The things that she makes with her hands . This is a first in a series of "poetry purses" . As I wrtie this I so wish she was here with me right now . We got the news late this after noon that Mom has cancer. And so I sit here writing in that kind of shock that comes with information such as this . A new door has opened and we must walk through. The journey continues.
