Much of my writing highlights places I love in my home region of the Southwest, particularly northern New Mexico. Yet it’s the lay of the land and the flow of the water that helps us know who we are by orienting us to where we are. Both the watershed and the bioregion are cultural constructs, too. Native people, here in Taos put down roots a thousand years ago, the Spanish for five hundred or so, and my family only for the last quarter century. Humans are migratory creatures trying to become native to a place.
I have a passion for sharing the culture of places, too—the arts, dance, music, food, people and traditions that brighten our lives. Whether I’m writing stories as seemingly disparate as Fashion at Taos Ski Valley, or about mud (a cultural and material basis for life around here), I find that the chance to write about home makes love it even more.
