Archetypal psychology embraces complexity by assuming that multiple images reside within a single idea.

Our task is to choose those images that have the most to tell us.

As I ponder the relationship between the psyche and the terrain in which it finds itself, in this instance, New Mexico,

I find that I have to explore both the history of the land and its inhabitants to comprehend the deeper meanings attached to the image-fragments

of past landscapes, past territories, past cultures, past environments and past inhabitants. Although the story of the people on this land

predates colonialism, the Sixteenth Century

marked a turn in events that has cast a long-lasting shadow.

I have made it my task to unearth the storied fragments within this shadow and let them shine through so that

each of us can see them with the gift of a longer view.
