Blood links the individuals within my family. Sometimes, it seems that blood is the only link. At other times, there exists a hierarchical co-dependency where we each play our role: the primal brother, the boundary-pushing daughter, the nurturing mother and the protective father. The roles we are assigned, or those that we assign to ourselves, guide me in an understanding of self within the family. My contemporary tribe.
