A 14 × 14 inch, acrylic painting of the sky. A journal entry is handwritten on the painting:

“I just returned yesterday from three days at Yale. I love the teaching, but I wonder if I need to insulate myself from the academic politics. Why do I always get called on for committee work? Perhaps I am simply a sucker.  Meanwhile, Piko texted me that Uncle has gone missing in L.A. Mom is really stressed. I need to tell Sharon.
