(Possibly) A True Story.
FEMALE: mid-50’s, bubbly, Christian, a redhead.
GOLDEN-RETRIEVER: magical, soft, and named Helen.
MULTIPLE FAMILY & FRIENDS: varying ages, intelligent, conscientious, civic-minded, gracious, & sensible.
ONE extraordinary INDIVIDUAL: (Who shall remain Anonymous, forever.)
The sewing of masks.
Redheaded female spends several days sewing CDC recommended face masks to be shared with family and friends in need. Female hums lightly a variety of JJ Heller melodies over the din of the sewing machine. Redhead’s golden-retriever comes in and out of scene periodically to sit beside female, which always produces a warm smile from the redhead.
Scene ends with redhead stacking all completed masks in a pile, tidying up her sewing area and departing the sewing room holding the stack of face masks tucked in her arms, as she turns off the light in the room with a full heart.
