Okay, June 18th, I’m ready

Boy, this 62nd year was quite something.    Summer and early fall saw a lot of energy focused on identifying why things were as they were and then dealing with cancer and a hysterectomy.   Neither the cancer or the hysterectomy were on my to do list. Goodbye thoughts of entering a doctoral program, hello […]

The Journey to Pueblo or Remembering One’s Place

The Journey to Pueblo or Remembering One’s Place

Train ride to La Junta, CO was good.  Lots of room and a chance to wear comfy shoes.   I will ride the Southwest Chief again. I wish it still stopped in Pueblo.   Oh, well, a quick layover in La Junta tonight and a short bus ride to Pueblo tomorrow. Ready to de-board, or […]

My TBT is a fairly recent one.  Last week I was finishing research in Pueblo, CO.  I’m going to write a book about my family and how their lives in the Southwest reflects specific experiences set in particular social contexts.  Reading that last sentence makes a bit of smoke come out of my ears and […]

…that is our bedroom. I can always tell when I have had a wide variety of events for which I need to do some writing, or presenting, or some such thing.   I need to figure out what to wear.  Does it express what I mean to share?  Does it still fit?  Will it be […]

Quite the family

Quite the family

I should be working on the formal presentation for my lecture tomorrow, but I am struck by how fascinating the history of the Elliott family is and felt compelled to share this with you. Helen Agnes Brown  – born to a mom who had the woman’s pioneer experience of traveling from one place to the […]

A Latina Lecturing at the Library

Getting to view the treasures in an archive is a wonder to me.    Those of us who are history nerds view this as a bit of Nirvana.  Truly.  I find being in an archive both invigorating and soothing. It is place of bliss. Every once in a while I get to share my discoveries […]
