Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

David and Tim arrive quietly every morning in their paneled van from Mooneyham Heating and Air. Neat and polite, they are installing the duct work for our heating and air conditioning system. Many Augusts from now, when the heat and humidity are oppressive outside, I will remember them and imagine their work underneath wood, sheet rock and paint, the cool air whooshing efficiently through its silver foil channels, keeping us comfortable.


I watch this home as it is being built cell by cell, and think of our own human bodies, and how the unseen parts make them work. We are all beautiful, amazing and perfect, especially in our imperfection. I think, too, of the invisible hot core of our planet home. And our hearts, our souls, whatever it is that makes us us: mysterious, ineffable and worthy of love.

Speak. Leave a memory.
