North Dakota Meditations 6: The Watchfires Of A Hundred Circling Camps

The night is very cold, and from my vantage point out the V-door on the rig floor I can glimpse the Killdeer Mountains, where the US Calvary fought the Indians.

As far as they eye can see, there are hundreds of natural gas flares, thier large plumes illuminating the horizon. I think of Gideon’s army surrounding the enemy, waiting to light their torches and sound thier trumpets.

The next joint of pipe comes through the door, and we go a little deeper.
