Winnie, Happy Days

Beginning, Act 2.
Winnie imbedded up to neck, hat on head, eyes closed. Her head, which she can no longer turn, nor bow, nor raise, faces front motionless throughout act. Movements of eyes as indicated. 
Bag and parasol as before. Revolver conspicuous to her right on mound. 
Long pause. 
Bell rings loudly. She opens her eyes at once. Bell stops. She gazes front. Long Pause
 
Winnie: Hail, holy light. [Long pause. She closes her eyes. Bell rings loudly. She opens eyes at once. Bell stops. She gazes front. Long smile. Smile off. Long pause.] Someone is looking at me still. [Pause.] Caring for me still. [Pause.] That is what I find so wonderful. [Pause.] Eyes on my Eyes. [Pause.]....
