Rock on Gold Dust Woman

 I have been gone for some time.
I have not had time for things lately. Art hasn't been much of a comfort...nothing has. 

I lost my beautiful sister to cervical cancer on Sunday the 22nd of January.

She was only 39.

This was very quick and unexpected. The Drs. had so much hope. Then suddenly it went wrong very quickly and she was gone. I  think I am still in shock. Words can not describe the pain and the loss . 

 My sister was one of the most interesting people you could ever meet. She traveled the world and lived more in her short life than most people do in a hundred years. I guess I understand now why she always seemed in a hurry to do everything. 

 But make no mistake even though she looked like an Angel with her golden hair and lovely face, she could be even darker than me in her morbid since of humor. 

She hated  funerals too. So even though we did a traditional wake for everyone else, we had a private ceremony on the beach at night with lanterns and cloaks singing songs into the sea. Saying good-by the way she would have wanted... heartfelt, weird, and shocking to all outsiders who witnessed the eccentricities of this family. She loved that!

She was one of my biggest fans too. I just really want to call her right now and laugh. I just really want to call her and hear her voice.

Our brother Ben made these beautiful posters for her wake

I love you sis!
I am still not sure how we will go on. 
The world is just not very interesting without you.
