This is the tropical houseplant you see at so many grocery stores and greenhouses around here. They're very striking. I think we take them for granted. And it was my saviour. First I tried painting a coffee cup, then a bowl of marbles, then a flower...and they all completely flopped. When I was wandering around trying to decide whether I should just skip it for the day I spied this plant tucked away in the corner, the light hitting it just so.
