About this piece, Oonah says, “It began as an image in my head. A tall, elegant woman dressed in red, standing off from a funeral group where all else was monotone including the weather. Somehow I knew her name because that’s what happens when I am going to write a story (or that’s how nuts I am). I would have liked to draw or paint the scene but I can’t and so my only recourse is to write and so I did and I hope you enjoy reading it.”
