"A Little Slice of Sky"
My memoir of growing up in the Wilds of Northern Idaho
It's July 1948. My parents, with me and my three sisters in tow, pull up roots from our urban home in Lewiston, and move to the wilds of the Idaho panhandle. We spend the first 4 months in the rough, hard-rock mining town of Kellogg before moving into our home on the west fork of Moon Creek.
I will spend nine years there, from November 1948 to August 1957, growing from a 5-1/2- year-old to a teenager. Without a phone, without a TV, and with no nearby neighbors.
Imagine you are a naturally introverted kid with artistic aspirations. Is growing up in this secluded, wild place, tucked into a narrow valley between forested mountains a blessing or a curse? "A Little Slice of Sky" reflects on how the isolation affected me and my family, and how that specific place helped shape my adult personality and passion for art.
