Sister Kate

Today is my sister Kate's birthday!  She lives in Portland where all the cool people live.  But what I really want you to know is that SistaKT has been an incredible big sister to me, as good as they come really.  She makes me laugh.  She's a really good dancer and one of the all-time best hula hoopers you will ever see in your life.  She is love in it's purest form.  She's real and genuine and authentic and she'll tell you the truth just as she sees it, and just as things are, without any b.s. every. single. time.  She's always taught me that there's a different path, and it's usually not the same one that most other people are on.  There aren't too many people like her in the world and I know how lucky I am to have her.  Whenever I need a good laugh I think about YOU and ME on the tractor on our way back from Kalikot, or the time when we slept on a plastic tarp freezing cold and holding each other on our way to J's village, and the time when you asked me where the toilet was there and I pointed to a huge rock.  It's hard to be so far away all the time.  I love love love you Kate and am wishing you the best birth year ever!!  

P.S.  Thank God you were born before me.

I'm a few days late but I too want to wish a heartfelt "Happy Birthday!" to SistaKT! I came to "know" and love you from the beautiful blog you kept in London with Juntara and will never forget the journey you took us all on.
I could never figure out how to post on that blog, so here is a late, big thank you for all that you wrote, and many wishes for many blessings! (And I hope some day you'll share your writings again :)

Kate. Kate. Kate. love in it's purest form. I have been blessed to be one of the cool people in Portland spending nearly every day with SistaKT.. I can assure you Maggie that she is well loved here and we follow your story, (have your photo hanging in our office), and consider you among family because kate is a true sister and where-ever she is her family grows.
