As a child, I never knew my grandmother anything other than bedridden. Her curtains were always drawn, bathing the room in half-light. I would sit on the cedar chest in the corner, while my mother cooed sweet-nothings to her mother, propped up on pillows and under a patchwork quilt, made from my grandfather’s neckties. What I found troubling was a moldering smell that I still associate with a woman lost in her own skin.
