Mule Day in Santa Fe

August 09, 2016

by Sallie Bingham

I grew up in Kentucky with a pair of mules, used to pull a grass cutter. I didn’t have a personal relationship with them; mostly, their big heads loomed over me as they looked at me from their stalls in the old rickety barn. But for some reason, I’ve always been fascinated by them, perhaps because Kentucky and Tennessee were said to breed the best mules in the country because they were part thoroughbred.

July 25, 2016

by Sallie Bingham

One of the great pleasures attendant on my beloved Tuesday evening writers’ group in Taos is that I get to stay Mabel’s house that night—the glorious B&B on the edge of Taos Pueblo land that preserves her spirit. Here come all kinds of people from all kinds of places, not exactly the luminaries like D.H. Lawrence that she drew, but fine people of all shades and stripes. Mabel’s portrait and the portrait of her Taos Pueblo husband, Tony Luhan, preside over the big dining room where the guests all share tables for breakfast.
