Look at me.
See my home, my town, my country.
See my two children, my husband.
See the color of my skin.
There is gray in my hair, did you see it?
And I rarely wear make-up, but like my toes painted.
Note any associations you may have with my name.
Look at my education, my age, my career, that I work part-time.
You have seen it all before.
The whole story is in front of you.
My life is hard ice, there is nothing beneath.
Pay no attention to the fish swimming deeply.
Make no attempt to break through. Come, pirouette on the surface.
The marquee tells the plot.
Now, write my story.
And I will write yours.
