My mother wants to paint the Tree of Life above my bed in the house my parents built.

Friends help.

La Fille Sur Le Pont

"I believe every promise I hear. I've never achieved anything. I've never been useful or precious to anyone, or happy, or even really unhappy. I guess you're unhappy when you lose something but I've never had anything except bad luck. "
-How do you see your future, Adele?
"I don't know. When I was little, all I wanted to do was grow up as fast as I could. But I can't see the point of it all. Not anymore. Getting older. I see my future like a waiting room in a big train station with benches and drafts. Outside, hordes of people run by without seeing me. They're all in a rush taking trains and taxis. They have somewhere to go, someone to meet, and I sit there, waiting."
-Waiting for what, Adele?
"For something to happen to me."
A brief vacation, then overwhelming amounts of work. It will be nice to breathe, drive, walk, and swim once again.

I've been updating blog-type things on my facebook acount. Add there, if need be.

The town

and it's water main broke, the river that runs through downtown, encompassing both residential and business areas, rose to deathly heights. Schools erupted in cheers when we were released early. It was spring. We had fun.

I play Eurydice, bride of Orpheus, for the last time in a week.

There was a piece of chalk on the stage, by the narrating pocket.
And when I came back at the end of the show, the pocket was full of little sayings people had written from the show.. "Let me step out of my own heart." "He turned- farewell." "Let me die still loving and so, never die."
It was wonderful, but the thing was, if you stepped on it with a sock.. they rubbed away.
