That Special Memory
Put a camera in Josiane's hands and give her an open field, a forest, or some ground covered by leaves and she will chance on a treasure. I wonder if my ancestors, who eventually left such lovely scenes, were able to pause in their toil, remember an almost forgotten day, and pull it from the storage place in their minds. Was it a balm or a pain - when their new land began to overwhelm them - to find that almost forgotten picture from another time and place.
