Good Scene 1 The first meesage: "Dear Catherine, I'm sorry I haven't talked to you in so long. I feel like I've been lost, no bearings, no compass. I kept crashing into things, a little crazy, I guess. I've never been lost before. You were my true north. I could always steer for home when you were my home. Forgive me for being so angry when you left. I still think that some mistake's been made, and I'm waiting for God to take it back. But I'm doing better now. The work helps me. Most of all, you helped me. You came into my dream last night with that smile of yours that always held me like a lover, rocked me like a child. All I remember from the dream is that feeling of peace. I woke up with that feeling and tried to keep it alive as long as I could. I'm writing to tell you that I'm on a journey towards that peace, and to tell you I'm sorry about so many things. I'm sorry I didn't take better care of you so that you'd never spend one minute feeling cold or scared or sick. I'm sorry I didn't try harder to find the words I was feeling. I'm sorry I didn't fix the screen door. I fixed it now. I'm sorry I ever fought with you. I'm sorry I didn't apologise more. I was too proud. I'm sorry I didn't bring you more compliments, on everything you wore and every way you fixed your hair. I'm sorry I didn't hold on to you with so much strength that even God couldn't pull you away. Signed, all my love, G."
