We know 'story'
when we encounter it.
It is a recognition that
comes from the heart.
What is needed is the telling --- and video is a medium well adapted
for that purpose. The storyteller draws back into the shadows and we
see and we hear. With video the story can be presented rather than
told in a way that no other medium can quite approach.
Here then are some stories
from a transplanted
mid-westerner who is
fascinated by the borders
which crisscross the New
Mexican landscapes.
