Sense of Place – January 2002 – Colorado Central Magazine
Here is this struggle, my struggle to write about a place when all I do is write about this place.

I suppose it is no accident that I chose the word migration. My people came to my valley home and lands of New Mexico over 400 years ago and have been stealing or stolen from ever since.
