This is Mark standing at the bed of his truck parked in the open doorway of the barn where he stores hay and farm equipment.
I usually don’t get to see him this time of year. The harvest is complete. Most of the hay was moved into other barns and farm equipment moved inside to hide it from winter’s harsh treatment. It’s rare when he visits the barn on the suburban plat of land he leases miles from his home. Today he spent about 20 minutes cleaning his truck of debris, detritus, and remains deposited from the summer crops.
