today the kids and i enter the mountains.
i will do this through longview alberta. the last time i was here was 11 years ago. piper was in mawney's womb and we arrived in longview to inter the ashes of mawney's mother, jenniece.
as an adolescent, jenniece had spent time in longview, to take care of the children of a local ranching family. mawney's namesake was one of those children.
this trip began the day before what would have been jenniece's 65th birthday. today she will be on our minds, i will regale the children with stories, and we will honour her by visiting the banks of the highwood river where it runs through longview.
running through our life
time cascades through it quickly
eddies are welcome
