When I was a sales rep for publishers, I routinely made the road trip north from Calgary up Highway #2 to see customers in Edmonton. I drove to Edmonton again yesterday for the first time in many years and … not much has changed! Except for the highway name, as it’s now designated as “Queen Elizabeth II”.
I remembered too this short story I wrote during that time I was a rep, when I was inspired by the song One of Us I heard on CKUA Radio (my constant companion on all my Alberta driving trips!) performed by Joan Osborne, while I was on one of those many trips.
So today, as I was driving south once again along that same highway, I thought I’d reread this story when I arrived back where I’m staying … and make it available for others to read, if they’re interested.
Goes to show, you just never know how or when you’ll be inspired or discover a story that needs to be told.
