Deceptive Cadence Coda Obbligato Intermezzo Interlude Requiem Reprise Parody Modulation Rubato Oratorio Along Main Street there was Shepherd's Mercantile Store and an ice cream parlor where the ice cream was homemade from the blocks of ice cut and stored during the summer months in a big ice pit covered with earth, salt and straw.
There was a healthy elementary school and a town hall. Then the new freeway was built, and it bypassed Levan by a few miles. The town had never been built to draw attention to itself, but it began a slow death as the trickle of new blood slowed to a stop. The ice cream parlor was long gone by the time I was born, and then the mercantile had to close its doors. The grade school fell into disrepair, shrinking to a one room schoolhouse as the younger generation grew up and left without anyone to fill the desks they vacated.
The older kids rode a bus for a half hour north to a neighboring town called Nephi for junior and senior high school, and by the time I was old enough for elementary school there was one teacher for the kindergarten through 2nd grades and another for third through sixth grades. Some people moved away, but most of the families that had been there for generations hung on and stayed.
All that remained along Main Street was a small general store where the townsfolk could purchase anything from milk to fertilizer. It boasted the name 'Country Mall. Long ago, the owner added a room on each end of the store and rented out the space for some locals to set up shop.
On one end it had a few tables and a little kitchen that served as a diner where the old men sat and drank their coffee in the morning.
Johnson to her face ran the diner and has for longer than I can remember. She's a one woman operation - she cooks, waitresses, and manages it all on her own.
She makes fluffy homemade donuts and the best greasy french fries on the planet. Everything she makes is deep-fried, and her face has a permanent sheen from the grease and the heat - which is how she got the nickname Sweaty Betty. Even cleaned up for church on Sundays her face glows and sadly, it isn't from the Holy Spirit. On the other end my Aunt Louise, my mom's sister, provided cuts, color, and good company for most of the women in Levan.
Out in front of the 'mall' there were a couple of gas pumps, and when I was younger, a snow cone shack called Skinny's that Louise's kids my cousins ran in the summer time. Louise's husband Bob was a truck driver and was gone a lot, and Louise had five kids she needed to keep busy while she cut hair.
Louise decided it was time for a family business. Skinny's Snow Cone Shack was born. Bob built a simple wooden shop that ended up looking a little like a tall skinny outhouse, hence the name Skinny's. The general store sold blocks of ice so they had a convenient source for 'snow. It was a pretty simple business model with a very low overhead.
My cousin Tara, who is the same age as me, ate so many snow cones that summer she made herself sick. She can't stand them to this day; even the smell of snowcones makes her retch.
There was a tiny brick post office down the street and a bar called Pete's right next to the church - interesting location, I know.
And that was Levan. Everybody knew which skills each person possessed, and we had blacksmiths, bakers, even candlestick makers. My dad could shoe a horse better than anyone; Jens Stephenson was a great mechanic, Paul Aagard, a handy carpenter, and so on.
We had talented seamstresses, cooks, and decorators.
Elena Rosquist was a mid-wife and had delivered several babies who had come without much warning, leaving no time to make the drive to the hospital in Nephi.
We made due by trading on our skills, whether we had an actual sign out front or not. Eventually, a few new families moved in to Levan, deciding it wasn't all that far to commute to the bigger cities. It was a good place to settle in and a good place to have and create roots.
The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon
In very small towns the whole town helps raise the kids. Everybody knows who everybody is, and if something or someone is up to no good, it gets back to the parents before a kid can get home to tell his side of it. The town wasn't much bigger than a square mile, not counting the outer lying farms, but as a child it was my whole world.
Perhaps the smallness of that world made my early loss more bearable, simply because I was looked after and loved by so many. It made my later loss harder to recover from, however, because it was a collective loss, a very young life snuffed out on the brink, a shock to the sleepy community.
No one expected me to move on. Like a shoe that has lost its mate is never worn again, I had lost my matching part and didn't know how to run barefoot. The early loss I refer to was the death of my mother.
I was just shy of nine years when Janelle Jensen, wife and mother, succumbed to breast cancer. I remember clearly how terrified I was when her beautiful hair had fallen out, and she wore a little pink stocking cap on her baby smooth head. She laughed and said she would get a blonde wig to finally match the rest of the family. She never did; she was gone too soon. She had been diagnosed with cancer just after Christmas.
The cancer had already spread to her lungs and was inoperable.
By the 4th of July she'd already been dead for two weeks. I remember hearing the first sounds of celebration commemorating our country's independence, hating the independence that had been suddenly forced upon me.
The jarring crack, boom, and wizz of neighborhood fireworks had my dad's lips tightening and his hands clenching. He'd looked at us, his four somber tow-heads, and tried to smile.
So she named each of her babies a 'J' name to fit the mold. She wasn't terribly original, because in Levan you'll find families with all 'K' names, all 'B' names, all 'Q' names. You name the letter, and we've got it.
People even have 'themes' for their children's names - giving them monikers like Brodeo and Justa Cowgirl. I'm not kidding.
I don't know why I remember this, small as it was, but in the days and weeks before my mom died, I don't ever remember her tripping over any of our names. Perhaps the distracting details of daily life that had once made her tongue tied dissolved in their insignificance, and she gave her rapt attention to our every word, our every expression, our every move.
We didn't make it in to see the big fireworks that year.
My brothers and I wandered out to watch the neighbors set off bottle rockets and spinners, and my dad spent the night in the barn trying to escape the mocking sounds of revelry. Hard work became my dad's anecdote to depression; he worked endlessly and let alcohol blur the cracks in between. We had a small farm with chickens and cows and horses, but farming didn't pay well, and my dad worked at the power plant in Nephi to make a living.
With three brothers who were much older than I, my duties on our little farm were minimal. My dad did need a housekeeper and a cook though, and I expected myself to fill my mother's shoes.Hard work became my dad's anecdote to depression; he worked endlessly and let alcohol blur the cracks in between.
Running Barefoot by Amy Harmon Summary
Another beautiful story that will stay with me a long time. But something in Tag has snapped and he has abandoned the love of his life, leaving her with their entire story narrated on a collection of tapes.
She wasn't terribly original, because in Levan you'll find families with all 'K' names, all 'B' names, all 'Q' names.
Working part-time at the local high school, she becomes enmeshed in a fifty-year-old unsolved mystery where nothing is as it seems.
As I said, I am not a fan of any religious ideology and I still enjoyed reading this story. The lady of the home agrees to teach Josie to play the piano and the two develop a friendship that is essential to the motherless teen.
Their friendship grows into something neither one expected. Even though Samuel lost touch with Josie, he explains why.
