Paired Chairs

Last night I returned from a trip to Mayne Island, where I was hosted by Jeremy and Sus, who were touring me past a couple of houses they had built when I took this picture. The tour is part of a walk these two often take. When we came upon the chairs I asked them if they have ever seen anyone sitting in them, and they said no.

As we continued I told Jeremy and Sus about my mother's house in White Rock, how in her backyard she has a number of chairs -- always in twos. Sometimes when I am visiting my mother I sit down in one of these paired chairs, thinking she might do the same, but she never does. These chairs are not for you and her, Sus says, they are for those who visit her imagination.
