When the season briskly changes from summer to fall, the beaches become empty and the wind carries newspaper scraps along the deserted sand. Flocks of memories flash through you, then linger in the distance until summertime returns. This suspension also occurs at the end of a stage play.

This little bird is the “Bird of Hope.” She remains quietly in the storage room until the next act, and can hardly conceal her passion for the impending new play.
