There’s a volcano in northeastern New Mexico called Capulin Volcano. It rises off the plain, and seems to stand totally alone atop the lava flow that came from it.
But the volcano isn’t the story today.
There’s a house that sits on the plain at the base of it. At the foothills to the foothills of the Rockies sits this little house. And it spoke to me. For once, though, I won’t tell you why. But the existence of this house is so compelling I took this photo, and hope you can find something in it that resonates with you too.
Someone lived here. They worked. They slept. Their kids got sick. They troubled. They loved. The wind threatened the very structure at times, and Lord knows what they ate. All that isn’t what speaks to me, but to look at this picture there’s no getting away from how hard people lived long before us. Someone was really proud of this house.
