“I picked this as it reminds me of the summers of my childhood.  Some of my fondest memories involve spending time with my sisters and cousins at my aunt’s country home near Walhachin.  Waking up to the sound of the river, and often a distant train across the river, was soothing and comforting.  The smell of the fresh clean air and the feeling of the heat beating down on hot summer days is etched in my memory.  Spending quality time with my family – no tv and no internet – while we let our imaginations run wild are invaluable moments I will never forget.”
