After a trip to an art exhibit in Rosthern,
we had a lovely lunch as well, (see the
b & w photos,). We crossed the mighty
North Saskatchewan River on the
Wingard ferry which is free, holds up to
six cars and is a trip of several minutes.
"Imagine that you see the wretched
Their babies at their backs and their poor
Plodding to the ports and coasts for
And that you sit as kings in your desires . . .
What had you got? I’ll tell you: you had
How insolence and strong hand should
How order should be quelled; and by this
Not one of you should live an aged man,
For other ruffians, as their fancies wrought,
With self same hand, self reasons, and self
Would shark on you, and men like
Would feed on one another."
