To my way of thinking, I’ve had three “homes.” I lived in other places, too, but my real “homes” were where I grew up, southwest of Wessington; Crookston, Minn.; and the Black Hills.

The Wessington Hills gave me my foundation; the flatlands of Minnesota gave me a great period of growing and fulfillment; and the Black Hills—first time around—was another period of growth and searching, and love of the scenic, historic area where I lived.

    To move or not to move…That is the question. RAMifications 4-16-14

    I had a lot of long talks with myself over the last few months about the sensibility of going through the agony of a move.
