Fiorella spent a restful half hour last night untangling Christmas tree lights and wrapping them into coils to pack away for next year. It was nice to know she still has the touch, that the cords would still fall apart in her hands as, weaving and shaking, she worked her way through the massive snarl-ups..
Untangling is a talent Fiorella has had since she was a child. She discovered it when she separated several intertwined jewelry chains she and Friend Ellen were using for dress-up,and since then has applied it to other tangles in her life.
The physical ones, not the psychological ones.
