Faded memories of her wedding

Daguerreotype, circa 1851, unknown U.S. photographer

The stars are words ...
Who succeeded? Who failed?

I failed. Trying to live up to the expectation of another, I failed. These aren' t just words, Michael. My failure is as real as the stars. I really have failed.

Except.... if you sew a bird's foot kesa, or if you sew even only one bird's foot on one segment of one stripe, then maybe I won't have failed after all.

Nonsense, Mike. And the kesa will be sewn. I sent you an e-mail.
