Where I Am

Meeting people where they are sounds ideal in theory, but I have begun to wonder if most people truly understand what that means.  Then again, we as humans are so amazingly unique, that we’re synonym’d as “individuals.”  So, not only are we encouraged to accept people as they are/as they come (their baggage… their hangups… their experiences… their current realities… etc. etc. etc.), but we are also responsible for recognizing that people do… can… and will, think differently than us.  Furthermore, I wonder also if we REALIZE that it’s those very same people we’re asked to be tolerant of, that will be intolerant of us.  Is it at that point; that line; that we stick our noses up, and instead of being one of the few, say “If you can’t beat ’em… Join ’em,”?

If I told you what I was,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would you be scared?
I get the feeling just because,
Everything I touch isn’t dark enough
If this problem lies in me

Not Ready

KristyBlog2-4000

There are so many things I have yet to tell you still.  So many things I still want to learn about you.  I want to roll my eyes at you for sticking your crazy straw in my moscato.  Shake my head at you for making me laugh when I didn’t want to.  Hug you because I love you.  There was more to do.  Oh there was so much more, sis…

Kristy Ann Danick-Bloodwyne was my sister.  Not “just” my SL sister… She was a piece of the real me.  More than I even realized.  She was opinionated, and sporadic.  CRAZY… She was crazy…. Mercy.  She loved…. Even if she made fun of you, or, especially if she made fun of you…. She loved you.

This woman… I will never know the full extent of the things she could have EASILY complained about.  She never let me ask her too many questions for very long before she switched to something to smile about and be thankful for.

She’d send me random snapshots of her various escapades in SL… God she probably spent thousands of lindens on random snapshots just to show me what she was up to.  I taught her how to use gyazo…. Her shopping budget increased from her linden savings, and I was privy to gyazo videos at that point, of her riding inflatable pool floats and dancing.

I’ll try, Sis…. To be more like you.  Thank you, for showing me how to be hopeful, and loving.  A pillar and backbone to your family.  God I miss you.  I’ve been working on this post for nearly 24 hours now, not sure still that I’m ready to post it.  When I received the news of you, I was setting up this scene to blog, not realizing at the time what it would turn into.  It’s still not perfect enough. I’ve added this tree, planted for you, Kristy, and have out some of the gifts you’ve given me, like the waterfalls and the ducks.

I’m just not ready…. Sis.  I’m sorry for taking for granted the days you were here.
I love you, Kristy.  I’m not ready though.

In Memory of My Sister: Kristy Ann Danick-Bloodwyne

“Although the sun will never shine the same
I’ll always look to a brighter day
Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day”
