Theresa Fritz 2001 – Ice Hotel in Canada Makes no Sense

2001 The Canadian

I found this article from 2001 and decided it should be documented. There is not a day I do not miss her.

We live now in a world of selfies and readily available photos at our fingertips.
I admit I have to force myself to take pictures of those closest to me. It’s this weird little brain glitch about privacy. And also about the camera not showing reality.
I mean, selfie mode on every phone has an auto filter, reducing lines and discolorations, so I KNOW I don’t look like the pics. “Objects in selfie are younger and slimmer than reality.”
But the other point is that when I take pics of friends and family, I’m rarely satisfied with what it captures. They are always so much MORE in reality. More beautiful. More effervescent. More light glowing from within. A photo is not good enough. It doesn’t do justice to those I love.
When my friend Theresa died two weeks ago, these photos came to my mind. I could see them clearly, but couldn’t bring myself to look at them. This past week, I dug out photo albums and couldn’t find them. Yesterday I located them. I have so few.
My theory holds. They don’t do her justice. A picture is a fraction of a second. Somewhere around 1/60 with flash. Less than the time of a heartbeat. These do not convey her energy, or humour, or intelligence or love.
But take photos anyway. Take them to remember what is in front of you, as memory prompts for what was, and of the love in that moment.

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
