Texture: Evan's Environment

So here Evan sits, mostly immobilized in his recliner, healing from one hip surgery, facing the next. His vistas compressed, confined. Curtained windows, bamboo blinds above one sofa. His crutches leaning against the small stone fireplace, its grinning robot cover Evan’s dad made. A stack of ethnic pillows on the other sofa where his treasured camera bag also sits.
A little Christmas tree, family photos, games, CDS, DVDs, TV screen on the mantel, his laptop, earphones. Homework files, craft projects organized in the rolling carts. Medicine. His Shady tee shirt, leopard-spotted fleece throw. The texture of his life reduced, yet still varied.
Of a certain richness.
