As the youngest in a family mostly married and gone, 14 year old Rachel finds herself sans puzzling assistance most of the time. James was our champion puzzler. His patience and focus was beautiful. He motivated the rest of us to join in. Now Rachel lives in a house with people who fail her communal puzzling ambitions more often than not. She embarked on a solo project that required super-natural tolerance, grit and ironwoman-like determination. It survived multiple catastrophic injuries when we forgot it was on the floor. It survived Baby Jack assuming puzzle pieces are edible, and kickable. It survived a number of hurried transports a top a wobbly board to temporary locations in the house. It was an epic struggle for artistic survival, and triumph.
True, various family members did contribute from time to time ~ but the bulk of the labor was all Rachel. It had become personal.
Froggie understood this, and welcomed the association.
