Last night, my Sister passed away.
SUSAN ( SANDERS) POMROY. 26 May 1952 – 17 February 2911.
"Those were summers when the heart quivered up from the hot yellow gravel and pierced the plaited rushes
of my wide-brimmed hats, summers almost without nights. For even then I so loved the dawn that my mother
granted it to me as a reward. She used to agree to wake me at half past three and off I would go, an empty
basket on each arm, towards the kitchen gardens that sheltered in the narrow bend of the river, in search of
strawberries, black currants, and hairy gooseberries."

But my daughter… said, “Tell them about how you’re never really a whole person if you remain silent, because there is always that one little piece inside you that wants to be spoken out, and if you keep ignoring it, it gets madder and madder and hotter and hotter, and if you don’t speak it out one day it will just up and punch you in the mouth from the inside.”
