A week ago, I visited this 1,000 year old community early in the morning. There aren't very many who still live in the pueblo. It was hard to believe anyone was really inside this adobe structure.
The dogs were just waking up.
And I did see a chimney through the opening of the church wall...with signs of life.
It was so peaceful at this early hour...thinking. A lot of things haven't changed much in 1000 years. There is still no running water or electricity within the Pueblo walls. But I wish I could have visited maybe 55 years ago, to see a morning filled with activity.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
