Berry, Mr. Alfred Berry married Francisca Rubio.  Questions leap forward; was related to Old Man Rubio of Rubio Canyon, were the Rubio Marron (Duarte, Lopez) family kith or kin to Doña […]

After and Before

After and Before

Been pretty busy lately.  Will share more of the details soon. In the meantime, yesterday was the 40th birthday of my older baby. A woman who can still make her tween laugh and can perch a purse on her knee without giving it too much thought.  I have to admire that skill set.  She is […]

Hello, it’s me…

Hello, it’s me…

I’ve missed being in touch with you. The last three weeks have been filled with day to day obligations and surprises. ObligationsThe day to day obligations still include time reserved for wrist exercises.  It may not impress you, but I am excited that I now am doing my exercises alternating one and two pound weights.

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.

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 […]

A historical empirical explore.

History surrounds us.  We live it in our day to day experiences.  We go to the store in the morning and it is a part of our personal history.  We talk about where we went to elementary or middle school – boom, history is present. Family history is often thought of as being a sort […]

Near Routt Avenue, on either side of Canal Street

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 […]

Ed Almanza, presente

Ed Almanza, presente

I spent the better part of the day looking for images of Ed.  I was reminded how very many pictures Ed had taken of the adventures he, Rita, James, and I had been a part of over nearly 20 years. My first recollection of his work had nothing to do with photographs.  James and I […]

…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 […]
