A year ago – maybe two, Mom painted a wonderful picture. Her art always invites interpretation but this one was special. To me it looked like a small and astonished human figure (unusual for her) hurtling through the air into the arms of two giant lobsters.
But I made the mistake of leaving it in her room rather than taking it with me. I never saw it again – a mistake that has haunted me ever since. I loved that painting.
Last week while searching her room for her misplaced dental partial, I found it!
