As the seasons change and the temperatures begin to drop, Montanans begin to brace for the brutal winter ahead. For our second week of Warm Hearts Warm Hearts, our crew drove up the North Fork Road looking for good firewood to split. We were excited to get our hands on some tools and dive into some hard work but saddened that we wouldn’t be seeing the direct impact of our work like we do with Warm Hearts Warm Hearts.

There were a few moments in which we couldn’t tell if he was about to cry or if his breath was just catching. We simply stood there in the rain, for about an hour, and listened. Heard about his friends who had died from asbestos poisoning in the last year. Heard about his father who had built this house so many decades ago. He needed someone new to tell his stories to.

A Job Well Done

10 days can seem like a long time, especially when its cold and wet and you cant dry your boots in time for tomorrow, but, showers and electricity and a laundromat really make it better to live in a cold damp tent.

In Reference

Above, it has grown dark enough for the scattered, dusty light of the Milky Way to appear. The line it traces across the night sky seems to reference the facing of the cabin standing next to me, paralleling the line of the roofed porch that has kept our packs and tools dry for the last five days. I wish that one of my crew had stayed with me beside the fire, but I know that I would have had nothing to say had any of them done so. To me, their presence will always be as much comfort as any words…

Tell today’s story. Tell about the woman who cried when you gave her the number for further assistance with mold. Tell about how it was the wrong number and you still need to call her back. Tell how she cried with relief and blessed you through her tears.

I didn’t see it coming, I didn’t expect it, and I certainly wasn’t looking for it. Maybe that’s what makes it meaningful; the quiet revelations that sneak up on you when you are otherwise entangled. Like the sun peering through the clouds after days of overcast skies, like a breeze kissing your sweat-soaked skin on a summer day… unexpected and refreshing, a soothing surprise. Hello, welcome. I didn’t expect you, but I’m glad you’re here.
