A Sunday afternoon out, hours north from High Level finds me at Indian Cabins, my first visit to a Dene burial site where the deceased are laid to rest in a grave and provided a burial house for shelter through each season, a sacred practice common to Indigenous peoples in Alberta’s north. Further on, up the road the Alexandra Falls in the Twin Falls Territorial Park (Northwest Territories) provides opportunity to practice filter use for blurring water falling over these falls.

Quote to Consider / Inspire – ‘Each of us is an artist of our days; the greater our integrity and awareness, the more original and creative our time will become.’ – John O’Donohue, ‘To Bless the Space Between Us.’

Listening to – U2’s ‘Running to Stand Still,’ ‘In God’s Country’ and ‘Where the Streets Have No Name.’
