  •  (Re) reading The Anthropology of Turquoise (7+ / 0-)

    by Ellen Meloy. A collection of essays about life in the natural world--mostly the canyons and deserts of Utah and the Four Corners area, all with a common thread of color--mostly turquoise--running through them.

    In The Brides of Place she says:

    " I would like someone to say of me, Her thoughts run to realms so remote they lift her right out of the material world. Among my species this is not an asset but a liability, and I have paid dearly for a reckess devotion to roofless places of mind and body. At least I have reached an age where I know it is useless to resist."

    She died suddenly in 2004.
