2014 little red goes home

Going Home: Little Red Goes Home 

(basketry trike in honour of Indian Residential School Survivors, Reconciliation Canada, Vancouver).


one of my many coping strategies (prayer, thanks-giving, love): thrift store shopping. and there it was, my answer: a red rider trike, $19.99.   former poor girl in me said, “do i have 20 dollars ? did i eat today?”, to myself. immediately, thoughts of the things children wish/ed for and could/can not have, like a bike, a bike to run away with.  here it was and now here it is, ‘little red’. for all who want to flee, for all who dream, all who fly like birds in their dreams to a better tomorrow.
