One sits at the kitchen table, computer open, listening, watching, homeworking.
Another lays face down on the floor, listening.
And the last sits on the couch, legs stretched out, alternating between singing along with the music and completing an assignment.
The lights are low and the music is loud.
"I love this," one says.
The other two nod in assent.
"I needed this," another one says.
The other two murmur agreement.
"I love you both," the other one says.
"I love you both, too," the other two reply from their respective places on floor and couch.
Each exactly where she is this evening, physically, mentally, spiritually.
