Storyboard Text

  • Loneliness influences instability.
  • Experience produces wisdom.
  • Envy creates torment.
  • She did not get well. She stayed skeleton thin, not wanting to eat, and night after night she had nightmares.
  • Loneliness influences instability.
  • She was two. Old enough for nursery school they said, and I did not know then what I know now-the fatigue of the long day, and the lacerations of group life in the kinds of nurseries that are only parking places for children.
  • Experience produces wisdom.
  • She fretted about her appearance, thin and dark and foreign-looking at a time when every little girl was supposed to look or thought she should look a chubby blonde replica of Shirley Temple.
  • Envy creates torment.
  • I used to try to hold and love her after she came back, but her body would stay stiff, and after a while she'd push away. She ate little. Food sickened her, and I think much of life too.
  • Only help her to know-help make it so there is cause for her to know-that she is more than this dress on the ironing board, helpless before the iron.
  • She tormented herself enough about not looking like the others, there was enough of the unsureness, the having to be conscious of words before you speak, the constant caring-what are they thinking of me? without having it all magnified by the merciless physical drives.
