“Family was even a bigger word than I imagined,
wide and without limitations,
if you allowed it,
defying easy definition.
You had family that was supposed to be family and wasn’t,
family that wasn’t family but was,
halves becoming whole, wholes splitting into two;
it was possible to lack whole, honest love and connection
from family in lead roles,
yet to be filled to abundance
by the unexpected supporting players.”
“Love comes in waves.
It’s natural law.
There’s always more coming.”
