This is my old home place, the farm I grew up on, the place I left to begin these winter journeys to the southwest.

To Remember Safely

The trick is not to forget, but to remember safely. Oh no, I know I cannot walk on the old pathways - use the old patterns to cut new dresses - but I must not forget them, or the experiences that gave rise to them. I am what I am, with the views I have, with the desires and skills and talents that I may possess, because of what I have been. I know what I know because I have lived what I have lived. To have any sort of wisdom without paying for the acquisition of it is not possible.
