    ROUND #152 :: MARY of the BLUE LIGHTS
    DESCRIPTION


    MARY of the BLUE LIGHTS

    No one is quite sure where Mary comes from, or how she manages to survive. Twelve years old, she lives on the city streets, despite many attempts to move her to a stable habitat. Somehow she manages to survive despite adversity, giving credit only to what she calls the 'blue lights'. Strange, glowing lights that she speaks to and that help take care of her. Only she can see them. Some people see her as crazy; maybe she is, or maybe she is in touch with forces that speak only directly to her.

    ------------

    ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
    1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
    2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
    3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE?

    --------------------

    SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
    1: You must submit ONE full sized image.
    2: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your entry.
    3: Use the Standard format (Below);

    Chow 152 :: VOTING :: MARY of the BLUE LIGHTS
    PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
    SAVE YOUR FILE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

    Chow##_Nickname
    example: "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg"

    THE REST IS EASY:
    1: No comments before poll is set. They WILL be deleted with utmost malice and petty grumbling.
    2: Sit back and enjoy the show. BYOPC (Bring your own popcorn)
    3: Good luck to all.

    Mary lives in blissfull ignorance of the harsh realities of street life. For her it is one big game. Puddles to jump in when it rains, stray animals to befriend, lots of hiding places, and of course her best friend Blow (Blue Glow) has been her constant companion since the night when she was 3 and her parents were killed.
    Everyone knows that Mary exists but none can follow her for long. Often the Police report seeing her near the scene when they have captured a criminal, there is even a rumour that Mary is a guardian of the city who leads the Police to "their man".
    Always strive for perfection. You will never achieve it, but will learn so much more in the striving.

    MARY of the BLUE LIGHTS

    the little girl
    sitting on the street
    smiling at her friends

    the blue spirits
    from the other world
    smiling back to her

    they keep her varm
    they keep her clean
    only for the smile from the little girl

    St. Mary's Hospital
    Pediatrics
    Dr. Lois Halson, Consulting Psychologist
    Private Notes on Patient Admission

    Patient: Mary Jane Doe, aka Mary Bluelights
    Age(s): Physical: approx 12 years; Cognitive: unknown (tests indeterminate); Emotional/affective: Late teen
    Diagnosis (tentative): Aphasic autism with possible latent schizophrenia (visual hallucinations)
    Functionality: highest

    Mary Bluelights is back. The foster mother brought her in last shift, nearly hysterical, claiming that Mary had cut her own hair without using scissors or any other sharp instrument. It's a safe home, with a long and positive history of fostering autistic children, so there's no reason to doubt her, but to look at Mary, you'd think she'd been to boot camp. That lovely waist-length hair, just gone. Mrs. Franco said there wasn't even anything to clean up. She left with her rosary in hand, repeatedly crossing herself. Yet I know her to be a very level-headed and rational woman!

    We're running out of foster home options -- they've all gotten to know our Mary, either by direct experience or the grapevine. Everyone agrees she's a lovely kid, never an overt behavioral problem, never aggressive, never acting out (at least not that anyone sees!), always participative, even occasionally buddying up with a lower-functioning patient during game sessions. But she's undeniably an odd case. I'd even go so far as to call her strange, given her treatment history here at St. Mary's... meds that have no effect, diagnostic instruments that don't work on her, even the damn MRI glitching whenever she's slated for a scan. It's almost as if she's hiding from us. I just hope we can keep her from hitting the streets again.

    Someday I'll solve this lovely little mystery, and then maybe we'll understand her mantra, her prayer, her... whatever... the only worlds she's ever said, since she first showed up here nine years ago: "Blue lights pretty, blue lights. Pretty!"
    __________________________________________________ _______________

    I figure little Mary would have more than one encounter with the child welfare system . In my experience there'd be few pre-pubescent girls actually growing up on the streets "full-time," much more likely to be spending years in and out of institutional and foster care, acquiring a record with various social services agencies. So this is that side of Mary's life, the other side of the brief, perhaps. Most girls that age would likely prefer the safety and comfort of even an ersatz family. Is she compelled to street life by her pretty lights?
