The white space represents the long winters of northern Ontario and the distance and thus isolation that I felt living far from urban centers. It takes two days to drive to Toronto from Kenora, Winnipeg is much closer (2 hours away) Embroidered in the snowy spaces are the names I had lived up until then. Fort Frances. Kenora. Rainy River. Thunder Bay. We didn't move to Manitoulin island until 1993.
