My parents visited, and they spent some time with my son. That's special, at least for me.… Continue reading I’m Over It

Besides a few other hamlets within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, the closest other settlement lies approximately 200 km south. For all intents and purposes, we are alone.… Continue reading One Way In, One Way Out
