See the dinner table. Let your eyes linger on the wooden chairs, unoccupied. Stare then through the kitchen window. Your gaze will penetrate the glass and rest itself on the solitary tree in the backyard. Watch it, watch how the leaves submit themselves to the wind. Their dance must be observed, their rhythm etched into your memory. As you watch this silent dance, listen to the sound of footsteps from upstairs. Footsteps approaching the table. Footsteps coming to a premature halt. Turn around now and bring the kitchen back into your viewfinder. Focus on the woman dancing and signing and cooking her meal. She seems free, free from the shackles of domestic life. She has created her own version of suburbia. She has painted the white picket fence her favorite shade of blue.
