JUST THE WAY IT IS

JUST THE WAY IT IS ———-

Northern New Mexico, rolling hills, old abandoned adobe homes, rusted tools, leaning fence posts and occasional dogs. As I’ve written, I felt at home in New Mexico, life was hard for me and all the rural people I saw, but what kept me and them going was our faith in a God. He filled me with art and beauty, which I didn’t find within my family life. I’m still being harassed by people influenced by family, twenty five years now, to the point that they poisoned my outdoor flowers recently. Only the beauty and art I experience within myself, stimulated by God’s love, keeps me going. New Mexico’s history is filled with cruelty and abusiveness. My Mother and Mother-in-law just added to it. I hope some day I can tell the world about what I’ve had to deal with my entire life. The picture conveys the beauty and harshness of this place, as I’ve said, I feel right at home wandering across New Mexico.
