This morning I was inspired to get up at 6 am and go for a jog: maybe because I didn't get to soccer last night, or maybe because I needed to clear my mind. As the sun rose over the sangre de cristo mountains, I thought, "Why don't I do this more often." I feel good now; we'll see how I feel at 2 pm.
I jogged up to a track at a local middle school, De Vargas. For the entire jog, my back was to the scoreboard until I left the track. And there I saw the board which read: Conquerors vs Guest. Is that a welcoming scoreboard or what? "Welcome to our field dear guest. Now we the conquerors will conqueror you (followed by a sinister laugh)."
Of course, Santa Fe is the city that once (and still does) celebrated Maria virgen la conquistadora. After the Spanish conquered the Native Americans they gave credit to Mary.
The real question: How many times have the conquerors have been conquerored by their guest on their own field?
