Love for my Sister

Because it is the holiday season, and I'm feeling the love of family, I want to post some recent photos of a simply glorious woman... my baby sister Heidi. Beautiful inside and out, Heidi has been a love of my life for as long as I can remember. We have built forts together, sewed barbie beds together, moved rooms of furniture together, watched the sun rise together.

I supported the right side of her body against mine while she gave birth to her son. She supported me through the loss of our father. We supported one another with laughter, tears, and song when Grandpa died.

She has blue eyes and her birthstones are moonstones and pearls. She likes toast with avocado and is a brilliant mathematician. Her Scottish accent is flawless and when she quotes Vincini from the Princess Bride you think he's in the room.

Once, when I was going through a particularly low time, she painted me a card with stars, hills, and moonshine. It only said four words, "I believe in you."

To me she is a model of grace, beauty, and mystery--intelligence and love. She is my wing man.

I took these pictures of Heidi and her daughter in my kitchen, with rainy light coming from the window.

This is my sister:

Merry Christmas Shashi
