I was feeling nostalgic for the writing of the book and the songs of it. It's on Spotify with the book title. Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir. It's the definition of eclectic.

“When we got to Mom’s casket in that small, wood-paneled room filled with caskets at 10,000 feet in elevation, I saw her surrounded by pioneer ghosts sitting on their haunches, too exhausted to look up from under their bonnets, dead babies in their arms. I heard the swishing of pebbles in hopeful mining pans –Leadville, the home of gold hunters. The mountains made of stone and money.”
Jenny Forrester, Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir

“We belonged to the sandstone and snow created by change. The sands of ancient water bodies and high deserts settled and compacted by other minerals and colored by iron oxide. People traveled there to the sculpted sandstone to see it, to be changed by it, made more serene. We told stories about the place to find our place in it and grew possessive and protective, wary of too many tourists, too many hiking feet, too many souls seeking quiet salvation, adding noise with their footfalls.”
Jenny Forrester, Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir

“Whatever holds our grief is massive. It’s big enough and wide enough to hold the ocean.”
Jenny Forrester, Narrow River, Wide Sky: A Memoir
