I am happy to be home from my 2017 journeys—which started in DC last January with the Women’s March and ended about a month ago flying home from Delhi, India. I’m even relatively happy that home is in New Mexico. So we are poor and ramshackle and dusty, but we’re also politically progressive (mostly), geographically interesting (almost everywhere) and culturally idiosyncratic (to the max).
