Five red grain sheds on a cold, white, wintry day in southwestern Alberta. The low perspective inspired the title: a reference to an old (and somewhat narrow-minded) joke about Canadian literature. It wasn’t until I experienced prairie winters myself (from a semi-safe distance at said prairie’s edge, nestled along the relative temperance of the Rocky Mountains) that I began to really understand why they haunted the works of our early creative voices.
