I really tried not to pester her –you can’t just turn on a faucet and have creativity pour out, and in my estimation, she created this beautiful piece in quick time. But…
…as impatient as I can be….
…and as much as I needed this…
…do you see what she added? The necklace…with the phial added?
…do you know what it’s like to be really seen? To be heard?
And to me, she captured something I couldn’t quite put my finger on, that the character of Mataoka is both sweet, but knowing. Innocence lost and found, I guess. Maybe I’m just projecting, but I see it.
Theme song: Something/George Harrison (my favorite Beatle, by the way)
