- A few years ago I found myself struggling with back pain. Many of the chairs and sofas in our house can most kindly be described as soft. Doing some research I found that IKEA made a sensible reading chair that supported the lower back while holding everything else in a comfortable way. We positioned the chair with the window light behind and the gas fireplace nearby for cold or rainy mornings. Sitting in this chair and having a cup of tea is one of life's deep pleasures. Currently I am preparing for a trip to Sedona, Arizona to study watercolor with Jeanne Carbonetti. Her style is wildly colorful. I look forward to learning how to play with color in an expansive way
Sitting in this chair returns me to my true self.
Well, perhaps that is something of an overstatement. But, I do like sitting here.
