Saguache, Colorado is a small town in a big place.
There aren’t a lot of people living there. Those few that do are capable of many things.
That’s because there is always work to be done.
People there are busy, but not with busy-work. They’re capable of handling multiple tasks but not with the nonsensical approach of multitasking.
The ecosystem of skills and labor is no different than in the biggest city. It’s just that the scale is different.
In this part of the America, seasons dictate the tasks. Planting, harvesting, and calving are just a few. For my subject, tax season is his busiest time of the year. When his neighbors are in a seasonal lull, he’s at his busiest.
Call it balance or symmetry. Either way, it seems as natural as the surroundings.
