ONCE UPON A TIME, LONG, LONG AGO in a land called Germany, a boy and girl fell in love and married. The newly weds travelled by ship across the great ocean to start a family in a foreign land called Canada.
From bonding over lollipops, the daughter and son learned sword play and other things and thrived in the new land across the great ocean.
Then lots of other stuff happened.
The children grew up and left the nest.
The son stayed in the area and the daughter travelled thousands of miles across the country to make a life in the west.
More time passed and the family made many visits back and forth to maintain their ties.
The son had a son. The daughter had a daughter.
By now you have guessed that I am the daughter of the boy and girl who married long, long ago in the land called Germany and travelled by ship across the great ocean to start a family.
And the early part of my story with my daughter, Michaela continues below on one of our visits back home across the great land.
Oh how Oma and Opa loved when Michaela played piano, they could hardly wait for her to wake up and play it again. And Oma and Opa and Michaela and Max, the white dog, enjoyed walks in the woods and sitting on rocks and logs.
And back out west our lives carried on and Michaela asked many questions and thought deeply about the mysteries of life.
And the story continues and lots of other stuff still happens on the west side of the great land that lays across the great ocean by the land called Germany where long, long ago a boy and girl fell in love and were married.
