Artist's Description

I put one of my photo’s in back to make this pretty. It’s perhaps reaching to call it Art. My Grandmother’s stuff has been stored in a damp dirty open garage for at least 40 years. It’s mostly decomposed. It smells like mold. Foolishly perhaps I’m reaching, reaching for a Grandmother whom I barely knew……

After my Grandfather died and she sold her house she had nowhere to store much of her stuff. Her daughter my mother, and my father were farmer’s with an open Garage and some space for boxes. A corner perhaps 10 foot square was piled high. Years passed until today most is just broken molded trash. I wish I had the gift of her memories, the reasons why she saved it all. All gone because she didn’t approve of my father and we weren’t close. That leaves little time for a child to hear stories and make memories.

I dedicate this to all of the people who foolishly look down on others as not being good enough. God sends gifts sometimes in simple boxes, more functional than pretty. That doesn’t mean the gift inside won’t be one you will treasure forever.
