Sometime you just have to make a fist. 

A little arm, actually intended for another piece of work, had been lying in the "I need to do something with that" box for years by now. I had picked it up again, turned it over, looked at it and put it back.

To take my mind off things, I went to the thrift shop to get some frames. And. VOILA! The puzzle pieces fell together.

It conjures up an image for me of a sour old lady sitting behind the geraniums all day staring out the window. When someone across the street puts his bike not in, but next to the rack, she stands up wearily from her worn armchair and sticks her fist out of the window (her head anxiously out of sight). "Darn it!" she then shouts angrily. "Evil boy! Flail!" After which, red-faced, she sinks back into her armchair panting, muttering softly to herself, "The neighbourhood is decaying. Darn it."
