"Oh there been times that I thought I couldn't last for long but now I think I'm able to carry on. It's been a long, long time coming but I know A Change Gon' Come." - Sam Cooke

I would start by apologizing for being MIA but the truth is, I haven't had a lot to update about. This blog is about real life and sometimes the ebb and flow of things are almost nil. I could complain about that but there is something to be said about nothing. There has been nothing bad to report. The day-to-day is blissfully uneventful and for that, I am grateful to have nothing to write about.

So what's changed you ask? Well I'll tell you. My sister came to visit me. She and her boyfriend were here for almost a week. We went out and did the tourist thing. We went out to eat. We sat around the house and cooked and made fun of each other and drank. It was loud and chaotic. And it made me very sad when she left. Because I realized how much I miss my siblings.

We grew up in the kind of madness that many people go to Dr. Phil & Oprah to cry about. None of us is perfect or unmarred by error but we have turned out remarkably normal given what our circumstances were and I for one am damn proud of us all. We came out of it a tight little group. Not like a lot of siblings I know. We call and text each other more than a lot of folks I've come into contact with and it wasn't until I hugged my Sissy goodbye at Sacramento International that I realized just how badly I've missed them all.And what has been missing in my relatively perfect little world.

Sacramento has fulfilled many things for me. Personally, emotionally and professionally I have been flying high. The only complaint I truly have is that I've missed my family and friends.

I was re-reading my blogs from when I made the decision to leave Nashville and start this crazy journey. I thought about everything it took to make this move & go against what pretty much everybody had to say against my decision. But I made it happen.

They say that you have to say something, put it out there to the universe to make something happen. I did that a little over a year ago and look how far it's taken me. So here goes one more time.  
*I want my siblings here with me. ;)*
