    Remnants of the Pioneers

     
    This rock foundation is all that is left of one of our early pioneer homes in Alberta. It sits near Wardlow, AB on the Red Deer River.
    We estimate her age at about 1860. The wind and weeds blow through what remains.
    And I ask, what remains of what does not remain. A pile of stones, vanished lives, a skeleton of once vibrant lives and loves out on this vast, dry plain. Gone, all gone now, and the family rests nearby in a little family cemetery.
    Gone, but somehow remembered through this monument to what once was full of life, Christmas, birthdays and home cooking.
