In the summer of 1976, this country girl came to Winnipeg to stay with her eldest brother and his family. My sister-in-law arranged a date for me with her youngest brother. It was my choice as to what we would do. I really wanted to see the Russian masterpieces on at the Winnipeg Art gallery. I was 15 years old and already then, I loved the visual arts. And so we went and I was amazed at the beauty and the richness of everything that I saw. As to my date, I heard he called me a "weird chick". We never dated again.
