Fern's drawings

Fern’s drawings, given to Paul through Jack, symbolize the past, the future, and family. The drawings, one on each side of a single sheet of paper, include a mother holding her son on a ferry on one side, and an olive tree on the other side. The drawing of the mother and a child on one symbolize the past in depiction of the wife and mother holding her son, representing Maureen and the boy. The future is represented by the Greek olive tree, meaning Paul’s future vacation spot will be in Greece. Both drawings also come to symbolize family, clearly by the wife and mother, and metaphorically by the tree by way of the concept of the “family tree,” the roots go down deep by way of love and togetherness – the very things Paul and Maureen have instilled in their sons.
