Love is not a mere emotion but self-transgression – I really love only what I care about more than about myself.
She is finally here! My most awesomest sister in the whole wide world is finally here. In Uganda. And she is staying for a little while longer. I am very excited and happy and tired and more excited and everything in between. And I want to write a lot already about the past few days. But I focused on her instead. Because I love her to the moon and back. And I was tired. Very tired.
Like I wrote last week. I am in desperate need of a break.
And it has finally arrived. Over the last few days I have worked pretty hard to finish everything I wanted to do before going on leave. Now I get to rest.
Although that also means just taking it incredibly chill. Like going out for food. All the types of new cuisines for my sister. All the types of cuisines I just absolutely love. Either way, I am happy. Very, very happy.
I recently read an article on the new Tomás Halík book ‘I want you to be’. He refers that as love. The book is about the relationship between faith and love and I am looking forward to reading it some day soon. The reading list is still long though.
And now I am first going to sleep. And have a very, very chill Sunday. And then a very, very chill holiday.
Sorry about missing out on my blogs this week. I am going to try and make up for it in the next few weeks with a bunch of pretty pictures and travel stories and everything related to having my wonderful sister around in Uganda, okay? And to make up for the missing days, a throwback to a video I was reminded of yesterday. About my sister and I and my parents and growing up together.
As a family.
