A 14 × 14 inch, acrylic painting of the sky. A journal entry is handwritten on the painting:

“I just took a long walk on the beach, where I found many shark tooth fossils and then took a short swim in surprisingly temperate waters. I’m beginning to rewire my brain in order to be a writer. It’s going to require as much discipline as I can muster. The key is not to worry if it’s good and this retreat is as good a place to start as any. David and Stephen, the two other residents, are collaborating on musical theater and have been very kind and supportive. Sarah just texted because she’s on the way to the hospital with an eye problem, so I put her in touch with Saul.
