Many of us have two types of family reunions: the one that exists only in the imagination, where everyone is relaxed and sits around enjoying homemade meals (with nary a dish to be washed, and nobody flitting about the kitchen and missing conversations); and the other type, where folks are coming and going and rushing around and making/breaking plans with lots of “be back soon” and “we should catch up sometime” commentary as the minutes and days whiz by.
Sometimes, despite the desire for the union of the reunion, people just seem to be moving in opposite directions, even living on different planes of reality, as it were. Families are fluid by nature; they don’t sit still for long.
And so, with a nod to the imagination of M.C. Escher, Family Reunion.
One of a kind snow (sparkle) globe with hand-fabricated staircase and vintage figures scurrying about. When shaken, the liquid-filled globe shimmers with gold dust, only slightly prettier than we imagine the sands of time.
