Merimée Moffitt arrived in El Rito, New Mexico, in 1970 in a big shiny green Chrysler full of Vietnam vets, two dogs, their pot dealer, and another girl. She then lived in a cabin south of Vallecitos in the Ortega Mountains and a year later in Taos where her first job was teaching all the school kids from northern NM how to swim at the newly opened Taos community pool. Her first experiences in NM are chronicled in her book of poems Making Little Edens and in her memoir Free Love, Free Fall: Scenes from the West Coast Sixties (also stories of NM). She earned her BA and MA in English from UNM, taught for 22 years in grades 8 through college and has been published in local and national journals. She co-authored Berlin Poems and Photographs with Georgia Santa Maria (which had a book launch at the Poetry Playhouse) and has a fourth book, Notes on Serenity, now available.
