her guide Zach is proving every bit as annoying as the miles of tramping lost
through the woods with no cell reception and getting caught in a torrential
downpour. Now havingfound respite in an old cabin and a flask of whiskey
she drops her tough as nails demeanor to reveal to Zach what brought her to
this plaoe in her life.
CARLA: You offend me, you know that? How can you not like marshmallows?
Marshmallows are delicious. When I was eight I ate marshmallows
for seven days straight once. I love marshmallows. Marshmallows,
marshmallows, marshmallows, mershmallllsss ... My grandmother loved
She taught me about art. My grandmother did. She used to take me
to museums eyery Saturday when I was growing up and we'd look at art
together. And she was an artist too. She wouldn't have called herself that
though, she would have called herself a housewife. But she did make art
Mr. Clemenson. Beautiful art. She had this one piece, I don't know how
to explain it, its just a piece of marble that she shaped in two concentric
pieces but one of the sides comes to a point, and out of it there's a break , ~
in the marble, a different color, a red, that makes a line down to the \\ \e'
bottom of the piece, a little crack ,9f red in th~~_~,~U.!.,!.ll~,£.,I!.l~<:'C ;
i~:~~~!.l.!ucl: pai~. And I don't know why. I want to know why it makes
me feel. She just 'died. She was the most important person in my life,
I'd talk to her about everything and now I have no one to talk to about
anything. I'm lost without her. I don't know who I am or what I'm
supposed to be doing anymore. I don't know right from wrong. I've lost
my moral compass. I've lost my way. What am I saying? Mr. Clemenson
I do believe this whiskey has gone straight to my head.
