Earlier, I was looking for a small painting of daffodils, to no avail, that I did a while back, - but instead found something else - this acrylic still life I did a few years ago. It turned up with other loosely related items in the piano bench.
The other thing that turned up which gladdened my heart immeasurably, occurred last week when I found a set of keys II'd been searching for since late August. They had fallen into a hiking shoe beneath a small drafting table in my bedroom.
I was looking for a pair of socks, and a glint of light from this shoe I seldom wear alerted me to the fact that this was no mere sock stuffed in my old shoe. There they were - three keys - one to my daughter's apartment in Toronto, one to my studio in Hamilton, one to my bicycle lock and also I guess, one for the road. Not a bad idea, I could use a key to wind myself up in the morning!
So the pell-mell and clutter of my house keeps me on my toes as it were.
