Mother and Grandmother
I found this photo a few years ago, soon
after my Mom passed away. It was in my grandmother Helga's photo
album, and of all our old family photos, this one fascinated me the most:
the look in Helga's eyes, the way my Mom is squirming, the pose of the two unknown women, and the team of horses.
This photo more than any other compelled me to visit North Dakota and learn
about my family's history.
