Thanks for this, Tami.

I'm trying to figure out what's going on with the little girl who is sometimes there and sometimes not. Thoughts?

Wow, what a surprising way to twist a piece of satire and colour it with such a somber tone to deliver a potent message! I love the original, and never thought it could be delivered in such a way! I think I like the feelings this piece evoked even better than the ones inspired from the written work, thanks for sharing!
