Of two sisters one is always the watcher, one the dancer. -Louise Glück
She’s the dancer. She’s the witty one, the loud one, the passionate one. She is beautiful, she is up for anything, and she is free. To the outside world, she and I are growing up; we’re changing. But to each other, we are just the same as always. Kathryn graduated from high school yesterday, and while that’s a milestone, I know her as she’s always been. I know her heart. I know her family jokes. I remember fights, and secrets, and long carrides, and staying up past bedtime. I remember the frappucinos on the way to school, the long days at the pool, the one-on-one backyard soccer. In our memories and in our experiences, Kathryn and I live outside the touch of time. She’s the dancer, and I love being able to watch the beautiful dance of her life.
