Crystal is a young woman whose father Edward is slipping into unconsciousness in hospice. When she reveals that her “real” mom” was her dad’s sister, Gladys (also deceased), we start sketching out a little scene for a celebratory dreamscape of both Mom and Dad. At first it is hard to stop focusing on Dad’s impulsivity and Glady’s overprotectiveness. But then we decide to use these traits in a positive way, putting the emphasis of the dreamscape on how Crystal learns to ride a scooter at the tender age of 4 — inspired by the way her loving parents raised her. It all starts with Edwin who surprises his daughter with a scooter when he picks her up at school one day. Then in scene 2, Gladys opens the door, we see Crystal with brightly colored bandaids on all her fingers. This is meant to convey to the viewer (i.e., Gladys): “it’s ok, Ma: no pain, no gain.” We place Crystal’s proud daddy behind her, beaming as he holds the scooter tucked under his arm.
