The chapter opens like this:
"As in every real family, several totally different world lived together in the house at Bald Hills, each maintaining its own particularity and yielding to the others, but merging into one harmonious whole."
I re-purposed someone else's artwork here. This is part of the stash that Lynn found in the eaves of her mother-in-law's old house on Cape Cod. I like how the circles and colors weave together into a "harmonious whole". By using glue, I smeared what were originally hard-edged lines, but it works here, I think. -- Lola
