The theme this week was music.

Title: Bones
Doc is mildly disappointed when he's finally finished.

Building it was nothing particularly difficult, but gathering the materials... A few coffins would serve as a fitting frame and soundboard, but the joy of collecting eighty-eight individual bones! He fondly remembers every individual strand of man-gut, now sun-dried and stretched taut, carefully drawn forth amidst blood and spleen and liver, his hands shaking in nervousness and anticipation.

But some afternoons, he'll sit for hours on the bench, his fingers delighting over the lacquered radii, singing aloud to songs from Cabaret.

Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome...

It's the simple pleasures that make life worthwhile.

Author's Notes: Joel Grey, who played Doc in "Forever," "The Weight of the World," and "The Gift," also played the Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret

radii: plural of radius, the name of one of the bones of the arm.
