The Winnipeg Free Press and the New York Times have initiated major overhauls of their obituary pages, featuring someone less known form their archives in the case of the NYT, and a feature of someone from Manitoba that has died recently, but deserves to be recognized more thoroughly in the Free Press on the cover of their Passages section.  I think both publications are onto something and this move may keep readers, while adding to the historical record.

My mother’s Sunday mornings

Today’s passage is a poem by Emily Dickinson “Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church – (236)” from Poetry Foundation website. Dickinson’s view would line-up just about perfectly with my mother’s predilection not to go to church on Sundays when my Dad was off preaching in southwest Manitoba. She would stay in bed and read and write letters. Her natural church was Buffalo Creek to which she returned all her life.
