How to Be an Ending
6539 Santa Monica Blvd. Hollywood
There's Paula, who teaches at a beauty school: "I see all kinds. Some of them are pregnant or already have a baby. Some of them are eager to get their first job and be on their own. Some of them are running from something. Many of them are tired. It's amazing how people can run when they are tired. How fast they can go. So fast they forget what was behind them. What was there. The color of it all. Like the color was never there. These girls-they run so fast that they crash right into me-I mean they really hit me. And they startle me. And for a second they have this look across their face-something optimistic. It happens so quickly, but by the time they catch their breath and pull some hair behind their ear-when they look at me-I mean really look at me-their faces drop, and turn to despair, because I'm tired."
