Last week I spent a day with my family in the country, near New Norway, Alberta. The dogs ran around, we tidied up my maternal relatives' graves, picnicked, walked, talked, and I made a list of the names on the gravestones: Rudy, Signe, Dorothy, Edith, Gladys, Florence, Agatha, Anna, Julia, Sophia, Freda, Greta, Eva, Inger, Arthur, Walter, Esther, Oscar, Peder, Beatrice, Cecil, Ruth...
I love it out there -the calm of it and the time, as Mindy put it, to absorb "that windswept prairie beauty".
