This week’s theme: Pulling strings.
She has pulled the strings for so long. But today I discovered scissors. She will pull them no longer.
She is a puppet, living day to day, strings pulled. She yearns for the power to move her own hands and feet. Choice. Independence. Freedom.
Strange. What is this? A string on the back of my hand? I don’t understand. And frown. And wonder what’s at the other end.
