Kate looked at Moira at dismay " Please I think I can see to my own appearance:" she snickered as she pushed Moira's gentle hands away. " Still the same Moira- Motherly Moira" she taunted.

Dave yes, Dave, Kate thought to herself. That wonderful man who just haphazardly glided into her life as if her were indeed a fresh summer breeze- refreshingly simple he was but Kate nevertheless found herself enamored with him.

Enticed by his crystalline azure eyes and that soft plume of obsidian hair; Kate automatically smiled when she thought of him. Butterflies flitted about her stomach; making her feel like a supercilious school girl all over again. "Dave" she whispered but thought twice before she told Moira anything.

Would Moira be able to understand? Understand the clandestine secret love that Kate held closest to her heart? What would her old friend say? Think? Kate thought to herself.

"Truth be told Moira" she said as she tousled and toyed with her disheveled dishwater blonde hair. "Dave is a story for a day where we have- perhaps more time" Kate said with a mysterious glint in her eye.

Eternity forbids thee to forget.

"Dave said that this was just a preliminary thing."

Dave, the afternoon bartender down at The Crown Tavern, had given her the phone number to the Legal Assistance company.

"Dave was right, but first impressions count, especially with Magistrate Reynolds." Moira kept hold of her elbow and led her the water fountain. Before Kate knew it, Moira had cupped her hand to collect water from the spout and splashed it on Kate's hair.

"What the--"

"You need to look a bit more sophisticated, Honey," Moira said, using her fingers to comb through Kate's long, dishwater blonde hair, "By the way, who's Dave?"



"Above all else, remember this: to thine own self be true."

Moira tugged at my arm and snapped me back to the present. "Are you listening to me here? This is important!" Moira was saying. She had no idea just how important it was that I got out of here.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

She knew Moira was talking once again, but didn't seem to hear her as she ran through the intervening years in her mind. Oh, those were good days! Days when you worked hard and played just as hard and life was full, and rich, and vibrant! Not the dull desert she was living in now.

A lot had happened since their last encounter. A faint smile rose on her face as she looked around her. Indeed, a lot had happened.

She wanted to ask Moira what the heck she was doing here,, but fear that Moira would respond in kind and want to know what she herself was doing here stopped her.

"What have you been doing with yourself?" Kate asked instead.

"No time for banalities," Moira said, shuffling through the sachel she carried over her left shoulder--a satchel that had seen better days. It looked as though life had not been kind to the artsy, talented lady who, Kate remembered, always marched to her own drum.

"What do you mean?"

"I'm your lawyer."

"Yes, but who..." the question died on her lips as the woman spoke again.

"Moira. Moira Blakely. Don't you remember? 1988, Summer Performing Arts Workshop, Lawton, Oklahoma. I taught Jazz, and you taught.."

"Ballet and tap', Kate answered. "I'm sorry I didn't recognize you. It's been almost 23 years..."

She vaguely saw, hidden withing the pockets and folds of fat, the young woman that Moira had been, and heaved a wistful sigh.

"Kate!"

She turned toward the feminine voice calling her name, but she didn't recognize the woman.

"Kate Shearer, is that really you?"

She jumped, snatched back her hand, startleed and ashamed of herself. What had she been thinking? Suddenly restless, she stood up and paced the area, looking for some solace within.

She reached her hand out inched out as the words "just one touch" echoed in her head.

"Hey there, hands to yourself!" bellowed out over the speaker.

If she reached out her hand just so. she would touch the dress of the woman sitting next to her. Just that human contact alone would reassure her of her membership in a macrocosm.

For a second, a smile crossed her face as she scanned the bodies around her. "Lonely, maybe, but obviously not alone. We're never REALLY alone", she thought.

"How lonely you can be," she thought,"in a room crowded with people." Her realization was of no comfort to her.

She sat, knees bouncing a mile a minute and watched the ushering in of still more people. She was not alone, but that brought no relief to her.

She didn't know how much longer she could sit here and wait. She'd go mad, crazy, ballistic if she didn't escape soon. Where was her lawyer?

Surrounded, yet alone. Equally familiar with the piercing unspoken pain behind the bustling of those around her as the sounds that emanated from them.

The nosie in the place was deafening. She wiped her mouth with a crumpled tissue she found, amidst the assorted female paraphernalia in her purse, and proceeded to the gallery. It was difficult to find a seat.

threw up in the middle of the waiting room. People didn't even react.

WHAT was she, a quiet "country girl" all her life, doing in an inner city courthouse?

glazed, unseeing, as if turned inward to some dark recess of her soul. The path in front of her seemed to open as people stepped out of the way and she...

To her left, a wiry, greasy-haired teenage boy paced as if he were anxious for his next fix. To her right. . .

Her thoughts shifted to Dorothy in Oz, closed her eyes tight and clicked her heels. "Some girls have all the luck," she said aloud after opening her eyes again and nothing had changed.
