Ba de ya de ya de ya  
This was a great day in history, my friends.

1866 – H. G. Wells, English writer, was born
1897 – The "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" editorial is published in the New York Sun.
1912 – Chuck Jones, American animator, was born.
1937 – J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit was published for the first time
1945 – Jerry Bruckheimer, American film and television producer, was born
1947 – Stephen King, American author, was born
1950 – Bill Murray, American comedian and actor, was born
1964 – Malta became independent from the United Kingdom.
1981 – Sandra Day O'Connor is unanimously approved by the U.S. Senate as the first female Supreme Court justice.

And Makini Corsey was born this day as well.
Old tomes lost to the family, document her full name meaning as "Beautiful Serene One". I knew her by other names, mostly muttered under breath out of my parents earshot. Having my mother come home with a bundle of so-called "joy" brought a rival into my life. All the normal jealousy and bickering followed through our youth and into adulthood. She got away with everything because she was the "Baby" and I got away with it because I was the oldest (or so I thought, Shawn XD).
Our behavior would be downright ugly, sometimes. We would trade words at elevated tones more often than not, and pilfer each others belongings out of spite.

A certain "Fox and the Hound" book comes immediately to mind.

In the circle of the Moon and Stars, we could not have been more incompatible. Moving earth Virgo and Immovable fire Leo in once case and Wood Year Rabbit and Metal Year Dog. The imagery alone paints a higly contrasting picture in harsh lines. When we reflected one another, it was understood what our rivalry was.
In literature and film (or I'll come right out and say MANGA and ANIME), great rivals come to terms and form alliances.
They become friends that share an honest relationship that will not will not hesitate to put the other in place if they get out of line. They argue at elevated tones and fight bitterly only to come back into each others' company.

She will always be my baby sister. I could be a complete heel to her, but only I could be a heel to her. I ran as fast as I could to catch some girls who robbed us on Halloween, because they made her cry. I should have worn sneakers.
Spiders? Hey, I'd be there in a heartbeat.
Rivalry is normal. It allows us to grow and see that even while in complete disagreement, we can still have some common ground. Our rivalry was a trial that laid the foundation of social interaction within the microcosm of a family setting. Going out into the world, I had to meet and deal with people much like my sister, understand them and see past what made us different and find that common ground.
With Rei and Jason, two people who personality wise, would not have any compatibility with me, are my best friend and husband.

Now we are off living our lives in far different surroundings. No worth opponents here. Today is the anniversary of when a great and worthy opponent came into my life. While my parents gave me my moral compass, she was what I calibrated it too.

And always that little smiling face, that pose, that girl who lived.
Somethings have no meaning without you.

But at least Earth, Wind & Fire got it right



Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the mind of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing.
As we danced in the night,
Remember - how the stars stole the night away, yeah yeah yeah.

Hey hey hey,
Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

Ba duda, ba duda, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda

My thoughts are with you
Holding hands with your heart to see you
Only blue talk and love,
Remember - how we knew love was here to stay

Now December found the love that we shared in September.
Only blue talk and love,
Remember - the true love we share today
