I recently had the pleasure of attending the annual Christmas market in Questa, Alumbra, the celebration of giving off illumination and light. It was a fun event to interview people, with a variety of vendors and community members sharing holiday cheer. What an amazing year we have all had in so many challenging and rewarding ways.
The last questions for 2021 were: Is there anything you are grateful for that happened in 2021 that you will carry through into 2022? Do you have a New Year’s resolution that you want to participate in through either body, mind, or soul that you will be grateful for in 2022?
In 2022, I would like to focus on my art and create art that I like to create. I am grateful to the Questa and Taos communities for supporting artists and people like myself so I can make a living creating art that I love to make and enjoy. I want to do more stuff that is good for me mentally and take more time outside and work my life around these things. Be with my doggie.

I am grateful for everything out here. The land we just purchased we moved onto two days ago. We are excited about our new home. I started a firewood business in 2021 and I am grateful for the success of it and will keep that rolling in the next year.
I don’t want to take anything from last year to next year. Thank you for my job in the village of Questa. I recently returned a year ago and am happy and grateful to be back. I love my job with no commute. I am here for the long haul. In 2022 I want to care for myself better by eating better and caring for myself and family.
I am retiring from Red River after 10 years! I am looking forward to being flexible and to do my favorite things. Re-purposing. Free bird not to have to work a 40-hour week. I am very grateful for that. That’s my story and I am sticking to it!
