Happy Thoughts

May 29, 2015

Iole is playing Wendy in her drama club’s production of Peter Pan, with a final performance at the Passe Muraille Theatre in downtown Toronto. She knows her lines by heart, but it’s very possible that she’ll forget every word once the big velvet curtain goes up. “I’m scared of all the grown-ups,” she said to me last night. “Of course you are,” I said. And then I told her what my friend Polly said to me just before I spoke in front of hundreds of people at our friend Zelmira’s wedding. “Just remember, everyone in this room is on your side. Everyone in this room wants you to succeed.”
