Cassiopeia Dreams of Better Days
The chair represents so many things to us. We see it as a connection between people and the positions they occupy. Chairs are place holders. Chairs are settings where we expect to see someone relaxing, resting, thinking, working. They imply humanity. We anthropomorphize them. We make them. We break them. We use them in weddings. They are symbols of authority. Coronations occur in them and the powerful rule from them. We can chair an event, or we can “get the chair”. We populate chairs with our own meaning and fill them with our own human activity. Chairs are laden with our own symbolic language. These chairs tell us a little about Cassiopeia and her regrets, but they are really about our relationships with each other.
