My sister once commented that if her acquaintances ever connected the dots between her family and this column, they would know all about her life.
Perhaps it is a little odd to have strangers know you before you ever open your mouth, but I can’t help sharing. As this year concludes, I think more and more that 2009 has been one of the best and my sister’s family has played a major role in that fact. Everything they have been involved in is more rich and luminescent.
I noticed this during a recent venture into Santa Fe. My sister, her oldest son, Connor, her daughter, Mairien, my mother and I went to see “The Nutcracker.”
Walking into the lobby of the Lensic Theater, with its lush colors and large staircases, we discovered we missed the first hour of the ballet. We could hear the music from the snow scene floating between the seams of the auditorium’s doors.
It was an honest mistake, which bummed out the adults of the group, but Mairien and Connor didn’t seem to mind at all.
They played with the life-sized model of a Nutcracker and when we snuck in the back row of the theater to check out the final moments of the snow dance before intermission, Connor ran excitedly through the aisle.
