I recently spent the night in Dragoon. I was there as a guest of the AZ Humanities Council and had the privilege of staying at the Amerind Foundation. This little known, out of the way spot is a spectacular combination of the natural world and one of the finest collections of archaeological and ethnological artifacts in the country as well as a sizable research library.
Upon my nighttime arrival however, what amazed me most was the darkness. No glaring LED billboards advertising the nearby casino or street lights to set off the night sky – just pure blackness dotted with stars that we not picked up by my iphone. I shot the photo and sent it to my husband.
He replied early the next the morning, “did you really send me a black square?” with the attached photo.
Marriage humor, I guess.
I’ve included some more photos below for you to learn about the Fulton’s work at Amerind. If you have a chance to visit, it’s highly recommended. Look now as Agrigirl is going dark for a few days.
When I return, you’ll get to see the new brand.
The focus will remain unchanged. I plan to write research based articles of interest on local economies, community building, leadership, civil discourse, the arts and humanities and of course, it will all come together at the kitchen table. There will continue to be features on Weekend Reading, T3 reports, and Local Food Focus. I don’t believe there has ever been a better time for us to be more engaged with each other in order to establish common ground and understanding. Food can be the great enabler of our discussions.
Stay tuned and as always, thank you for your readership and your friendship.
