Parlor and Workspace, 2

[click to enlarge]

When I was a kid, the red rocking chair was unpainted. My mother�s father used to listen to the fights and �Amos and Andy� in that chair. To the right is my mother�s bookcase. The painting above it, a favorite of my father�s, has been around all my life. Across the front entrance, the other bookcase is mine. The big picture above it is of my grandmother�s cousin, William Saroyan, taken in 1935. The big picture to the left of that is of my father�s father when he was twelve, and is the subject of an earlier entry, Papa, 1908. The leather chair used to be in the living room. It�s where my mother sat and tried to remember things.
