A wonderful slice-of-life that is so much more than that - you take us there. Thank you. Beautifully written.

I sent my Sister Nila a copy of this today on her 72nd Birthday.  This is what she wrote back: 

"This brought back such GOLDEN memories!   What an exciting event was the roasting of the pig!  Neighbors and friends from near and far coming together just to sing and dance and play and eat and drink.  This is a wonderful essay, sis.  You made it all so vivid again."

Re: Kabu

My used-to-be BIL and his wife still own and use for the summer, the "new" house.  He has married twice since my Sis died.  My niece and her husband visit there every summer when family gathers.  They all live in California now, but they just returned to NM for the September Zozobra festivities in Santa Fe and spent time up on the Mesa.

A great write, I visited a Hippie area in Australia a few years ago. it is a wonderful area these days.

 There are still some small dwellings but many of the people actually went back to University and finished their degrees. One an architect has turned his Eco friendly fallen wood and clay cabin into a huge dwelling. Still maintaining the same concepts that he started with. He and his partner who enjoys farming their vegetarian dietary needs and selling what they don't use at markets, brought their children up here.

There is also an outdoors ecumenical Church that overlooks a valley. I loved everything I saw.

Compelling and poignant! In just a few passages you invoke another time and a whole way of life, and Barbara's fate tells ofthe fatefulness of all life...
