Dear Sister
August 1, 2008

Today my sister is returning.  She has been wondering around Europe for the past few months.   We started together in England and I returned and she continued on.  England to Holland to Germany, back to Holland, to Prague, Vienna & Budapest.  Most of her time was spent taking an art class in Prague, however.
I am just glad to have my sister return.  I’m heading to the airport with my brother to retrieve her.  We had an emotional parting in the middle of a square in York, England with music playing and such.
The above photos are from our short time in Haworth, home of the Bronte’s.  We are somewhat of Bronte fanatics.  
Amy is a so creative and smart.  I know she is going to do some amazing things.  She inspires me incredibly and any ounce of creativity or style that I have has to be attributed to her.  We are extremely different and in some ways very much the same.  Both of us love to write and we have been writing letters back and forth for several years.  Sending letters over the ocean and receiving them from foreign soil has been very fun!
I wish you all a very happy weekend filled with everything that makes your heart happy.  And in honor of Amalia’s return I leave you with a passage from one of my favorite poems by Emily Bronte that I find quite appropriate!
Now trust a heart that trusts in you ,
And firmly say the word Adieu;
Be sure wherever I may roam,
My heart is with your heart at home;

Today, sister i told you and brother that i can’t feel home anywhere. I was wrong. Just now as i was reading your words and then emily’s words, i felt at home. So maybe home is not a place, but rather in you.

Patricia- how lucky you are to have 3 sisters. There is nothing like a sister bond. Even if you don’t have a lot in common or are in different stages in life, etc. there is still this unique beautiful bond between sisters, isn’t there?
