I grew up on a farm along the open prairies of Canada. Visitors are often awestruck by the sheer flatness of it all. It’s a, far as the eye can see, wide open spaces, flat as a pancake sort of place. It is often the brunt of a lot of jokes, yet as we say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Isn't life all about perspective and how you choose to view it? When I "slant" the picture of these prairie lands I become filled with wonder. Because let me tell you, this place has one of the most majestic views of the sky and stars at night. The sunrise and sunsets take my breath away and if that weren’t enough the Northern Lights come and dance above us. I can often be found sitting under this magic show, breathlessly taking it all in. I find such solace during the pitch of night when the moon and stars swallow the darkness whole.
