Northern Lights Southern Cross is a Canadian immigrant’s journal. My spouse and I have been living in Alberta for twelve years now, and this rugged landscape has become our home. These entries describe our journey through the days...our random thoughts, our lofty dreams, our faltering steps, our bright hopes. Please join us for a brief sojourn or an entire season.

One of the Botswana stamps on Bron's postcard features my favourite butterfly: the pretty Southern Sapphire (Iolaus silas), a butterfly of the Lycaenidae family. It is found in South Africa (and I assume, from the stamp, in Botswana).
