For me, forgiveness is a continuum: Its not like a pretty little package that you wrap a bow around and tie a balloon to, and in this case, its forgiveness with a whole new set of rules, says Ross. Redfish Lake was the setting for the best possible moments I ever had, the most beautiful moments that were defining me as a kid, and that just got completely fucked up in every possible way. And yet its still such a powerful place for me, and such a draw, and so instructive. I couldnt help but go back there. Its the literal and metaphoric source of everything in my world.
