There are views that look out across great expanses of land. There are views that look out across vast stretches of time; past, present and future. And once every so often, if you’re lucky, you find yourself in a place where you get both in the same moment. I am so lucky. Brit Trydal is a second mother to me. Not a stepmother or a mother-in-law, but a family friend known so long there isn’t a place in my memory without her. She and my mother have been friends more than 40 years.
