“Sea-Star, just in the way she is. One of us sisters. . . She gives without a thought, and it actually works for her.”

Her name is Sea-Star, spelled Sister. She taught me many things I am still learning to grasp, even today. She taught me how important it is for women to go past the petty things girls have learned over the year, and to connect and support one another. Women become jealous of each other, fighting over stupid shit, which is the opposite of what we need. It’s actually insane that it is like that, if you think about it.

Sea-Star, just in the way she is. One of us sisters. She gives without a thought, and it actually works for her. She says it comes back to her as freefall, one way or another. She is not worried about things, she just is. It used to absolutely boggle my mind. I once asked her if she wasn’t worried that things will not work out at the end of the month. ‘If I keep doing, it comes back to me,’ she said. And it does! One time she had a sewer problem in her old house. It cost $20,000 to fix, and she did not have the money. Somehow, some relative she did not even know, died and left her enough to cover it.

I nearly had my daughter at her house. Four years ago, and only now I am starting to fully understand what she meant.
