  (Ariana comes to the board and puts down one dot)

A point.

       (she now draws a line)

Now it's not visible, only we saw the whole thing started with that one point.

Where was it?

Was it the moment I came to this school?  The instant you decided you wanted to win this academic craptest and you would help me?

What are the points in our lives?  The food we eat and never remember?  Or the taco at the downtown stand at midnight that makes us so sick we never forget!

The everyday we see every point?  And yet, there are points in our lives that we cannot avoid.  We can try, but we can't.

All the days are part of these points, until they point to one day, one minute when we make a choice that chooses a path in our life.  We still have to eat after this point, we still have to go to the bathroom and sleep.....but all in a different direction.

 How do we get to any point?

And what is the point?  It stands alone one dot in a very big universe.

How did it get there?  I put it there, but some would argue it was always there, and I just made sure everyone could see it.

What's the truth in all this?

 How did we get to this point?

        (She wipes the board and exits.  Isaac watches.  Lights down, end of scene)
