*************************************************************
Gustaf wrapped his gnarled fingers around the rail that snaked up the hill to his refuge. It took much longer these days to make the eighty-seven foot climb, but he didn’t mind. The solitude was worth the strenuous effort. His prayer had always been to be surrounded by family. God heard that prayer. Boy did He ever.

Now he spent his days in “the shop” making items to sell at the market. It kept food on his table, which was paramount. With eighteen females to feed this was a vital effort for him. But the peace was his real ally.
