Mabel’s House

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.
