Wall of remembrance, Chimayo

Reading the story about Mabel McCay reminds me of the rich spiritual and curandera traditions of New Mexico, think Anaya's Bless me Ultima or John Nichol's excellent Milagro trilogy. Passed these road markers in Mora.

Although I am not a person of deep faith, I respect and admire the richness of religious cultures and am not above a furtive prayer when things get especially shitty. Any port in a storm, you know.

Equal opportunity.
