Legal colleague was visiting Saskatoon. Mentioned the childhood home, and that of Neil Remington Abramson beside it. She visited, and took pictures.
The trees. Don’t remember any trees.
Do remember, then and now, the architectural marvel of the Abramson house. Fifty-five years old, and still ahead of its time.
Then she took pictures of the view from the house. The experimental farm of the University of Saskatchewan.
Remember the expanse. How in the winter, one could walk over the fences, with snowdrifts so high and packed.
What reference, and what illusions. Somebody stayed the same.
