  1. Being the youngest in my family (shared with my twin sister), I have a tough time wondering how the oldest ever got by ~ by nature the oldest are so responsible…I see my oldest sister in this poem. Love seeing the little paradoxes that life throws our way when we try to figure out just who we are, and every time we think we have something defined ~ it changes 🙂

    • You know, we barely get by. Lot’s riding on these shoulders of ours, Randall. ( A twin…very cool!) However, I have become a bit more enlightened since we last spoke. I apparently have a crazy side that wants to visit the world. Also, it has been brought to my attention that she has deeper feelings that should be expressed.

      See what you miss when you don’t stop by regularly. 🙂
      J/K…on the making you feel guility part. The rest is so true. The poems will probably get going through a bit of growth for a while. Hang on to your camera. 🙂

    • Wish I could stop by regularly…need a dose of your reality especially in this reality. Look forward to seeing what the future hold with your writing and dealing with your crazy side’s influence as well 🙂

  2. Hey Audrey, you really did some ‘defining of self’ here, didn’t you? Good on you. Taking some time to look inside and really look at yourself and evaluate who you see yourself as.
    Good on you girl.
    🙂

  3. I have two daughters. The first one/older is as you describe. The younger one is quite different. She is strong yet vulnerable. There are 12 years difference in the two so the younger one has found society has changed since her older sister grew up. I admire them both.
