I arrived at Mom’s to see that her red chair was missing. She was looking rather bewildered as she sits in it every day looking out at the view. It turned out it had been sent out for cleaning BUT as I moved another chair in its place, I saw a packet of paintings. It turns out that Mom has been hiding paintings under that chair for months. Some I thought has been lost forever and there was one truly incredible one—some kind of creature in blues and greens—that I had never seen before. Mom couldn’t have cared less but I was thrilled.
