Here in New Mexico, otra vez
The Marrakesh, the Timbuktu of America, The City at the End of the World.
V. B. Price speaks of the Albuquerque he found in 1958, and speaks of the freedom, the liberation he felt crossing the Arizona/New Mexico state line on Route 66 (through one of the most baroque clefts in the mesas you could ask for, but he doesn't mention that) and I know just what he means. I feel the same liberation feeling every time I drive through that cleft. My heart soars. A big grin plastered on my face. "Home."
KNME has lots of online videos at its site. Worth spending some time exploring.
