Zuni

When my youngest son was two and we lived in the shadow of this mesa he called it "Home, home Zuni."  

Zuni New Mexico -1

My first full year teaching was in this ancient pueblo.  I didn't know a lot about the southwest until I moved to Zuni.  It was a learning experience, personal and culturally.   I loved the heritage my students had and how their history went so far back on this continent that they emerged from it and found the middle place.   I love the Zuni mountains they are striking on the landscape.  My students are in their mid-twenties now, I still think about them and that year in New Mexico.
