Part of me wonders if somehow seven years is a magic number... it is in fairy tales. I have dreams where Ariane is just out of reach, where I desperately want to tell her something and grab hold of her. Sometimes she makes it clear that she is visiting from another dimension. As a teenager she played Perdita in Shakespeare's Winter's Tale, directed by pamelina at the Footlight Club. I wonder if, like Perdita, she will be found on a foreign shore and return to offer forgiveness.
