Poor Doris. She can't ever really get finished on time, the old girl. With Doris, it's either her hair, half curled, or her shoes, snugly on her feet, but yet unbuckled. Try as she might, she can never make it anywhere on time with this dressing, changing, pondering, viewing, second-guessing. Doris sees the world as a constantly changing stage upon which she thrusts herself, hastily clad and poorly prepared because, well, she just never has time. She feels her life slipping farther and farther into middle age, and yet she tries. She tries to get to all of that unfinished business before it's too late. For now, it's her hair. Tomorrow? Mowing the lawn? Doris' story continues, inside a set of six photos, next, and here:
