Chapter Summary

The author's 76-year-old mother and her 78-year-old mother-in-law were busy sorting out their belongings as they wanted to tidy up their personal belongings. Her mother-in-law sorted out her photos a few months ago. Finally, the family grave became the target of her mother-in-law tidying up. Her mother-in-law had the urns of the close relatives taken out of the grave and consigned to the ossuary of the temple. The urns of the distant relatives were disposed. Her mother-in-law's hobby was painting. She sorted out the canvasses that had accumulated through the years. As her mother-in-law had been painting for almost thirty years, she had a cupboard full of paintings, and at the moment she tried to throw away most of them. The author felt that her mother-in-law should at least keep her own paintings.
