FEEL­ING Wel­come

EQUUS - - In Brief -

One of the un­ex­pected joys of liv­ing in ru­ral Amer­ica has been dis­cov­er­ing how friendly ev­ery­one is—from our neigh­bors to the county clerk to ser­vice providers to peo­ple met on the street. We met a gal in the So­corro feed store who man­ages a large cat­tle ranch, and we soon dis­cov­ered we had mu­tual friends. We met a fel­low in the So­corro Wal­mart who grows most of the al­falfa for the re­gion. A wo­man in the hard­ware store said she grew up just north of Pie Town. In our own neigh­bor­hood, there’s a sense of ca­ma­raderie, and ev­ery­one pitches in to help. There’s a real sense of com­mu­nity here!
