In times of crises Mai takes up to three baths a day to calm herself down. At one point this safe place had become a morbid fantasy. She imagined herself with a long blade and the pleasure of seeing the water run deep red. She felt discouraged. Today she puts her head under the water, and slides her fingers against the bath to create whale songs. When she naively explains this to her ex-boyfriend he kindly responds, “Get a job Mai!” They laugh.
