We are sisters in the truest form, bonded by nature and nurture. We live states apart, but we’re connected at the core. Twins? Nope. I fear what would have happened to our mother’s womb if we came out that way! Sisters, 4 years apart. Our personalities complement each other: She’s flint, I’m a rock. She’s profoundly creative, I’m profoundly spiritual. She’s ambitious, I’m content. She’s the entertainer, I’m the hostess. She likes to rock, I like to groove. Together we could give Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Price a run for their money!
Whether it’s nature, nurture, or the hand of God, we share one trait particularly: Love. Love for each other, love for family, love for friends, love for strangers, love for humanity. In both of us it tends to manifest in the “of course” mentality. Need someone to pick up your kids at 2 even though we had planned an hour to ourselves then? “of course.” Need me to run by your house to grab your notebook you forgot to take out of town with you, then read the information you needed? “Of course.” We also tend to see the need and offer to fill it before you even ask. Does that mean we easily ask for or accept help? Um, no.
So this is our blog. We will both contribute our musings, and sometimes we will collaborate. And you, you are the lucky one who gets to see what happens when we cross the streams.
Egon Spengler: There’s something very important I forgot to tell you.
Peter Venkman: What?
Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.
Spengler: It would be bad.
Venkman: I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”?
Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Venkman: Right. That’s bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
