Building the von Awesome family plot.
Out of sand.
Our mausoleum was glorious for one moment, then disappeared into nothing, never to be re-created in the same way ever again, nothing to hold onto for all of our hours and hours of grueling work, save pictures, memories, and deeply aching muscles. It is a metaphor for making theater. Also life.
In which we made the von Awesome family grave plot. Out of sand.
