Sometimes things change. I want to go back to St. Michael to teach Charlene’s kids to juggle. I want to eat spam and paint Eskimo masks on kids’ faces. I want to write a play about breaking the silence, or help Charlene write a play for the whole village, telling even more secrets. But they might not need me now. Dougie and Barnsie might already be there, making a show with every kid in the village. Some of Paul Paul’s students might have grown up to be teachers, showing off Yup’ik masks and sharing the old stories. Charlene might be the new St. Michael school custodian.
