Simply Six Minutes

We shared this room, thus the pink and blue bureau, an image certainly of the political correct fifties culture. Boys need blue and girls are pink. Probably that and the closeness of brother and sister at young ages is one of the reasons we now survive as adults. We ignored the labels and sought solace in our secret conversations, included our true feelings despite the outer garments we were forced to wear. We needed to fit in, at least that was the direction in which our parents guided us. Life happened and as teens we were of course separated in distance, but still we remained our best friend-tell-all status. It is sometimes sad to look back at these pictures of seeming equality, yet it was only a forced facade.
