But, it wasn't until he started playing flute at age 18, that music took him over. They say the flute chooses you, and it certainly has changed my life-since then, I've spent most of my time traveling and playing music. As Mirabal's flute playing "took over," friends and fans wanted to buy an album or cassette. She also lent me the money to buy my first flute," replies Mirabal. Mirabal says that coming from a minority, and being able to stand outside the dominant culture, is a large part of who he is. When you're a solo artist, you only have to be responsible for yourself and your mistakes don't impact a whole bunch of other people.
I'm more like a beaver building a dam, making water where there was none, water that can spread out and nurture many things-plants, trees, animals and humans. Or, I'm like a farmer, creating and planting. You have to nurture the seedlings and deal with things like draught, insects and weeds.

At its best, Taos is a ruminating sort of place. I was raised in Taos Pueblo, New Mexico with the knowledge of a sometimes tragic history. Today the villagers work and play where battles have been fought for survival…In my work, I have tried to capture those moments that I believe existed between those harsh and challenging times and the present…I hope to help preserve a record of the traditional life of our people and to educate those who know little of us, desiring that increased knowledge and understanding will help all of us to live better with one another and with the natural world.
Jonathan Warm Day, Alma Luz Villanueva is the author of three novels. It was in the middle of my career in Holland doing advertising, being an art director and I was successful. But there was also something drawing me to adventure, and I came to the U. It was the first time getting to know the U. This is so different. This is so awesome. I need to do that again, or something like that. Jaap is known as an award-winning Dutch photographer by many people. He lives, works and loves in Taos, and has for many years. Grace was a painter and had come to Taos to study with Walter Ufer.
Alfredo, known exclusively by the nickname of "Skeezix", was a druggist who had a drugstore on the Plaza. From the beginning my world was characterized by cultural richness and contradiction and saturated with art. My parents were friends with the Taos painters and I grew up at art openings, bohemian parties and studio gatherings listening to art-talk and looking at paintings.
My mother taught me to draw, sew, sculpt, use pastels, paint with watercolor and oil and look critically at art. My father was a renown raconteur and a history buff full of stories. I am still mining Daddy's stories and using Mother's critical eye as an artist. I paint to heal myself and others, to find wholeness and document my journey, tell what I have learned, and I paint to have fun. He is currently Emeritus Professor of English, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, were he founded and edited the literary journal, Writers' Forum, from John Nichols to antoinette: And my best friend at the time is a person who was quite political and he finally just said: I came back from Guatemala and all this shit happened at once.
Lyndon Johnson running for President, the build up of American troops, I got married. You know, all of the sudden am I not only dealing with a published novel that was popular The Sterile Cuckoo , I'm dealing with New York City, the sharks in publishing, the terrifying idea of suddenly making money.

And the wife would go out and work, but the wife didn't really know if she WANTED to go out and work, but she felt she had to. And then I just started going to study groups to learn more about Vietnam war and you open Pandora's box and you can't get it closed. And it's just sort of like the world fell apart. In other words, so much was stripped away from how I had been living, just how the culture trained us to live.
And all this happened at the time when I hit "success" and within six months I just rejected the success. It was just too complicated and too full of contradictions. That kind of thing. I just backed out of the world. I mean I backed out of the literary world. I sort of lived in it for six months or a year and then I just I mean it was SO cynical. The money world, the publishing world--it was such disillusionment. Because I mean you're in college and you dream about being an artist, a writer, you read about Scott Fitzgerald and Hemingway and Carson McCullers and you think you are going to have these great experiences in that literary world.
But it turns out that the literary world is a psycho capitalistic vicious hardass universe. Just like every other job.

Just like being a teacher in academia. And people will butt fuck you right and left for a nickel and I just got shell shocked because you know you want to lead a life and have some kind of career with some kind of integrity. And it seemed like this would be incredibly difficult to do in a world that was so obsessed with sort of fame and money, right? And sort of really quickly I realized that having my work represented as money packages the way that anything is that anyone would think could be popular is just a frightening monster experience that completely takes away any control over your own art.

Taos is a microcosm. This is an extreme place, the economic lines are seriously drawn. The glass is half-full. More information about her activities may be found at: The saints and angels series is a way for Bowers to help the community see teenagers with new eyes, and not judge them based on clothes or age.
Bowers describes the portraits as 'If everyone had wings, first impressions would never hurt. The beauty of Taos and the richness not without difficulty of its cultures and art have inspired and supported my art -- photography and especially writing, since I came here. I moved to the Southwest thirteen years ago because of the prismatic sunsets over the purple dusk of the llano. I have learned to relax in the plaza, listen to the rustle of willows interspersed with Spanish and Tewa.
My home now is just across the border in Trinidad, but I return to Taos frequently to renew with other poets and to listen to their voices, and my poems continue to find their home in many New Mexico publications.

I am Barbara Moran, writer, seeker, pilgrim, frequent visitor to northern New Mexico, a Chicago-born-recently-relocated-Tucson-woman passionately in love with the Wonder of Taos. I adore Taos and all the places it takes me deep within my soul. I was always kind of a tomboy. I always fretted bout things you were supposed to do.
I was maid at Carnivale twice, and my daddy was a kin at one of the carnival balls, but I always fretted. And you were supposed to do the sororities, and I just suffered. I was locked in a dormitory with women who were kind of interested in hair and make-up. And I used to walk up and down the halls. I always did acrobatics and gymnastics. I think for me here I was able to breathe. A small town southern existence was suffocating, stifling.
