I like small towns like Rodeo, New Mexico

You see, this is the kind of place where moving slow is still in style. Sitting on the front porch and waving at curious motorists is still a thing to do. Getting together at the tavern to talk about the day’s happenings, even if there weren’t any, is a Rodeo staple.

Rodeo is both soft and rough around the edges. I knew that once when I had stopped by the store/restaurant for a cold drink and was greeted by a not-so-friendly snake just off the main road. Rather than be alarmed, it somehow made perfect sense.

People are interesting things. I write about them and what makes them interesting.
