We went to Chile, my dad and I, to visit my sister, Phoebe. She lives in Futaleufu, in the Patagonia region which is way down south. I was nervous to travel so far while pregnant but Smokey did great and so did I.
I love seeing Phoebe’s life. She’s made such a beautiful one.
Of course we made art together. I sketched while Phoebe painted murals in her new house, we made a mosaic together in the kitchen.
Here’s Phoebe working on her mural, looking just like our mom.
There’s a kind of magic when we’re all together.
How much does place matter, where we live? What is home? I think about these questions a lot.

And now it’s time to begin my new beginning. It’s 2016. I’m leaving my job in six weeks. My baby will be born in four months. A whole new life full of unknowns.
