June 21, 2019. I took highway 2 from Brandon, and pulled into the town of Holland, Manitoba early in the day. Holland is in the heart of the Prairies and I wanted very much to include voices from this part of the world. I pulled into town and parked across from the post office. I saw Ken, about to get back into his car with an armful of mail, and introduced myself. He was friendly and willing to answer my mysterious questions.
