Jess Svingen - My name is Jess Svingen. I’m working at York Hospital on my pediatric rotation. I am currently a family medicine resident in Erie Pennsylvania and I’m just here for the month. I walked into the York Starbucks and within three seconds I knew that the pictures on the wall were of Montana. It was a feeling so familiar to see those skies. My brain as was on auto recognition “Those are Montana skies.” I doubted it at first, because why in York would there be pictures of my home state. I knew for sure as soon as I saw the Gallatin Valley grain elevators.

I am from Glasgow, Montana. I am third generation born and raised in Valley County. 3 of my 4 grandparents were first generation Americans born out in the middle of the prairie in some dugout or old school house. They lived lives of farm kids, had no water or electricity, lived trough the depression and the War and are true Montanas down to the core.

Your work is beautiful. I sat there drinking my latte staring at the picture of the Thomas Murphy Homestead , thinking about my Big Sky country and tears welled up in my eyes as my heart ached for home. And as I lost myself in that picture, I could feel the breeze on my face and I could hear the wind through the prairie grass. It is if I were sitting in that field with my eyes closed and I could feel the sun and the shadows pass over me as the clouds rolled by, blocking and shedding the sunlight. I could hear the weatern meadowlarks and smell the alfalfa and the silver sage. Thank you for taking me home, even if it was just for a little while and even if it was in my own mind.
