Her grandmother commented on her drawing, her sketchpad in her lap sitting on the porch step I commented that she writes stories too “She’s very creative”. She is that, and so much more, creative and funny, supportive, imaginative and bossy, big sister and young child, at times. She is the oldest, the role model, the example, the tester, the one we must get it right with. Creative, oh yes. A mind that sees the details; but can conjure a world in her stories, in the pictures she draws, yes, even the ones in church, when she shares them with me, insistently, when I am listening to the sermon from the pulpit. She’s listening too, even then, because she knows the heart of the pastor’s message. Oh yes, Erica is creative; but that is just the beginning.
