Photographer Kirk Gittings and archaeologist Matt Schmader at Boca Negra Cave, one of the earliest examples of “architececture” in New Mexico. From caves to adobes to Spaceport America, New Mexico’s architectural legacy tells a compelling story of people and places written in stone, mud, steel, and glass. Visiting these handsomely wrought sites, you can touch, climb on, and walk through history—quite a privilege. Some 1,700 years ago, the people who camped in a cave on Albuquerque’s West Mesa were in the midst of a major cultural and biotechnological revolution: They started to grow and eat corn. “After 7,500 years of a very stable—and very mobile—culture, people were on the verge of a whole new way of life,” says archaeologist Matt Schmader, Superintendent of Open Space for the City of Albuquerque. And right here in Boca Negra cave, a shallow niche tucked into an extinct volcano in Albuquerque’s West Mesa Open Space, within the Petroglyph National Monument, archaeologists have found the earliest evidence of corn in the region. Schmader says the inhabitants roamed between the Río Grande and the Río Puerco hunting deer, antelope, and rabbits. “The way this West Mesa has been used over the years is amazing,.
Raise your hand if you normally use the overhead lighting in your home and don't bother with lighting lamps. It's one of the first things I want to set up when moving into a home, because once I have lamps to turn on in the evening or on a cloudy day, I really feel like I'm home. I know those of you who read this blog have plenty of decorating and design sense, and more importantly, you know what you like in your own home. Some years ago, I was shopping in a local lamp store, and the sales clerk told me that decorators recommend you have a minimum of three lamps in all your rooms (with the possible exception of bathrooms). ) But I now know that three lamps per room is definitely not too many, especially in a house like ours where some of the rooms don't get a whole lot of natural sunlight. The windows here are plentiful, but they're not large. Because of these factors, and the size of the room, our den has four lamps. This wrought-iron lamp has been in our den for many years, too. Before we got our flat-screen television, we had a different entertainment console with a larger lamp on it. That lamp is now in the basement.
