The artist depicts a native Honduran woman cutting fish in her home. The most memorable days of her childhood are behind her, and her best days are still ahead of her. She ponders her day as she tarries inside her own head. What was once a taxing and tedious chore becomes a time and space for meditation. As she cuts and measures with an eagle eye the fish to be served to loved ones, she plays with the idea of being on the open seas. She imagines commanding a peaceable crew of sisters and wives. At least once a year they could sail out and catch their own prized fish. And bond over their life stories of nagging husbands, unpredictable children, and beloved relatives. For now, the coconut fish stew needs about 3 more lbs. of filet.
