Rural landscapes: Grace’s resting place
WINTER AT THE CEMETERY,
FORT SMITH, NORTHWEST TERRITORIES
I wasn’t intending to make this photo a tribute to Grace Ann Beaulieu, who lived only one day in 1975. I really just liked the compelling winter scene.
But then, while processing this picture, I noticed the plate on the cross and imagined how hard it must have been for Grace’s parents to have her for only a day. Life is sometimes beyond our comprehension even if, like me, you have the joy and challenge of a significant faith life. (I follow Jesus of Nazareth.)
