Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Tbunday, Oclobsr 14, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor WE former Saskatcliewaniles are pretty good- iialurcd all told, when it comes to taking the jokes about our place of origin. We suffer through the totally unnecessary comments about prai- rie roads, John Diefenbaker, flat prairie and the now almost fad that nearly everyone with any sense at all leaves before the age of 30. A lot of the remarks hit home because if you grow up in the upper half of the province, you've quite likely often been a bit snobbish about those poor country cousins in the southern half. have any beautiful forests to look at and live on that flat desolate prairie where you can watch the wheat ripen for 25 miles in any direction. And while you arc leaving your beautiful world to make a living in the richer province next door, poor country cousins are sitting at home watching the wheat ripen and planning their winter home in Victoria. Trees are to be lived among. I can thoroughly appreciate a feeling of homesickness for a particular region whether trees, mountains or the sea. Only after a lot of years have I begun to understand the feeling of the prairie. Oh, there are grasshoppers, and potholes in the loo narrow highways, but you can live with that. You can drive through those wheat fields for hours swearing you were on a treadwheel. You know you're moving, the scenery is moving, but it looks the same from hour to hour. The prairie is the feeling it inspires. If it isn't there, you haven't learned to appreciate its special quality. A prairie sunset is a sight to behold. No child should ever miss the drama of that red globe dropping out of sight from a sky uncluttered by clouds. Somehow when the sun sets into a cloud forma- tion such as is usually seen here, it's beautiful, but it's easier lo believe that the sun is just hiding until the next day. When you see the sun disappear into the earth, it's gone forever. Even after many years, the effect remains, and depression of that long twilight zone returns. Stand on the prairie at night alone. No mountain range to provide protection. No trees to hide you from the unknown. No hills in which to escape. Just you. and the ground beneath your feet facing whatever comes. If ever there were a geographical feature to test human resources, it's the prairie. The sky is black. The stars are frighteningly close. You're alone, but your yourself, whatever you are, have and maybe will be. Isolation makes or breaks, and so does the prairie. It's good to go back, just once in a while.
