Storyboard Text

  • Beginning: Childlike
  • Middle: Transitioning
  • End: Adultlike (Grace Olson p.6)
  • In the beginning of "Marigolds" Lizbeth acted more like a child and less like an adult. "Then I lost my head entirely, mad with the power of inciting such rage, and ran out of the bushes in the storm of pebbles, straight toward Miss Lottie chanting madly, “Old witch, fell in a ditch, picked up a penny and thought she was rich!” 
  • "When I awoke, somewhere in the middle of the night, my mother had returned, and I vaguely listened to the conversation that was audible through the thin walls that separated our rooms." Lizbeth listened through the walls to hear her parents talking about their lives, and that's when she makes her last act of childhood. She then rips all of Miss Lottie's marigolds up from the ground.
  • "The years have put words to the things I knew in that moment, and as I look back upon it, I know that that moment marked the end of innocence." Lizbeth is older and knows what she did now. "For one does not have to be ignorant and poor to find that one’s life is barren as the dusty yards of one’s town. And I too have planted marigolds."
