Irene Woodard

I did not know Anne, but I think I did. Many many late nights in the women's changing room at DDL and KC. We were often the last ones there at night. I don't remember what we chatted about in those still hours. You were rinsing your mouth, for how long was it? Disciplined. And then you would be late for something, so you would be running to be on duty. Looking like a young horse, running and apologizing on arrival but with a sparkle in your eyes. There were many shifts, sitting across from you in the shrine tent , or later the Pavilion. You sat so straight, so beautiful, lungta blazing. Thank you for sitting across from me , reminding me to sit straighter, and for being such a very delightful person. I will miss you.
