First came the Saskatchewan Festival of Words, and my Rembrandt rendering of Crozier, Currie, and Carpenter.
I drove west, stopping to visit my old friend and teacher Tom Wayman, pictured here on the former rail line past the former Lemon Creek internment camp above Winlaw, B.C.
On to Kelowna the next day, I shared the lawn with various children, siblings, nieces and nephews . . .
On the way back east, I stopped with my sister Susan for a couple of walks in Grasslands National Park.
Two days later, she spotted the sign at Herbert, my home town.
I gave two readings in this former Roman Catholic church owned now by Pat Donnelly.
And rode in the Herbert Rodeo Parade.
After that, I was exhausted from all the attention.
