Well, I really Heart my friend Rebecca. She shared with me such special things while I visited her a couple weeks ago.

One of them was taking me to the burial site of Louis Riel. We went for a lovely, peaceful walk through downtown YWG until we came across this overwhelming graveyard and the Saint-Boniface Cathedral. We walked through the gates, past groundskeepers cutting the grass and upon his gravestone.

We were quiet. And I thought of amm and what we would have said to each other had she been there with me. Then I took pictures and Rebecca and I had a little chat about Louis. And I felt calm and peaceful and a bit surreal. And it was something that I had always wanted to do. So thank-you Rebecca for giving this gift to me.

I took a few pictures of the peonies. Baba had pink peonies at her little place in Regina…
