  1. Signe this is a touching tribute to your father. You were a strong young woman at sixteen; observant and sweet, too.

  2. Thank you, Victoria – it was a pleasure to contribute!

  3. Elizabeth Eslami says:

    Wow, Signe. This is beautiful. I remember talking with you a few years ago, the pleasure of being on the same wavelength about all things literary. Now to have the even greater pleasure of reading and falling in love with your words. Something tells me in the future, we’re going to have a very long conversation about mountains.

  4. Thank you so much, Elizabeth – such a compliment, especially give that your book was the one that got away! I’d love nothing more than to talk mountains someday. Over a pint. Or two. : -)

  5. Extraordinary memory of things seen and unseen. Beautifully written/transcribed. “Our footsteps fall into the land and they become a part of it.” This is both a privilege and a warning… I am engaged by the way you think.

  6. You are such a great writer, Signe – breathtaking! I am in awe of you.

  7. Thank you, Harrison – your piece set the tone, and was so inspiring! Thank you, Raven, who has become a great writer herself!

  8. Rose says:

    This is just beautiful, Signe. I’m teaching a first year seminar next fall in Journal-Writing and I was wondering if I might share this piece with my class….

  9. Hi Rose,

    Of course. I’d be honored.

    Best, Signe

  10. Parthenia Hicks says:

    Very beautiful. What a wonderful writer you are. I love the tone and in the end, I feel the longing for and loss of the father. Thank you!

  11. Brava! Well done, Sig — hope to hook up soon, Shari
