Could I Leave You
This is where I started. Could I Leave You comes from Follies, a musical by Stephen Sondheim which centers on a group of geriatric performers reminiscing about their showgirl pasts and the lives they've led since. I still like this woman's face and that's where I spent the most time. I'm beginning to post these at about day 35 and I know the habits I've developed have changed, even in just one month. Much of this image was left completely undone because I had no idea what was possible in 2 hours. I still get distracted, but I can manage my time better now. I'm still figuring out how far outside the musical's setting I should travel--the characters, in the musical, are at a party. The song discusses a marriage that has soured, but the stuff they own together still ties them as one. Passionate love has died, but companionship still survives. All in all, she asks, "Could I Leave You? Yes. Will I Leave you? Guess".
