Dear Molly, Kudos on purchasing The Annunciation for Tim’s Mother while you were in Paris. You spent too much money but it’s Paris! What else are you supposed to do? Don’t matte the print. She is going to take it out of the matte that you spent good money on and put it in some gawd awful faux marble matte. When you and Tim drive to New Jersey the only thing that will matter is the ocean. Remember how dark the sky over the ocean was at night. When you learn about Tom’s River that sky will haunt you as you read. Darker than dark – like the sky could swallow you like an undertow.
