I like to collect chairs. This week a chair in the corner of the antique shop was calling my name. Not really, I don’t hear voices yet. The cane seat immediately caught my eye. The chair brought a smile to my face. Caning is a method of weaving chair seats. These days caning is a lost art.
Caning is dear and close to my heart because my parents once weaved seats for a living in the Dominican Republic. My dad passed away from Cancer 14 years ago. I cherish every memory of my dad. When I look at the chair, it reminds me of my childhood and my love for my parents who worked hard for a better life for our family. The little chair has a new home now. I appreciate all the hands it took to make it.
