(Screaming)  Can't you hear me?  I can hear you!  I know who you are!  You are my daughter!

          (She points)

And my grandchildren!  Why are you all so blind!  Don’t you remember…..(almost desperate)....when we moved here to San Diego, and it was so nice, even in the winter, and we used to walk by the beach, and you would look at this very place and ask about the people here….the old people who never remembered your name, even when we told them every day...……the people who were here for years and then, one day, they weren’t here anymore……like the ocean had come and swallowed them up…..and when you asked where they had gone, I told you....(hard to say)..... they had taken a special boat…..a heavenboat… somewhere else across another ocean….an ocean of time…..and now, the tide has turned and the time has come for me to be in this place….and it’s beautiful…..only I can’t remember that we’re in San Diego….I can’t remember the name of this place because I can’t remember my own name……because… I’m almost ready for that last boat……

          (She waves, turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Thank you for coming.......I'll see you next time.......I love you.....

          (Exits for a last journey)
