An Education Without Borders
Winning photograph speaks volumes
An older Latina woman stands clutching a telephone pole painted with colors of the American flag in a border town of the Southwestern United States. She’s expressionless except for a squinting of her dark eyes during the midday sun. Her gaze is slightly off camera and a silver cross is half hidden under her blouse. Her left wrist is bandaged, yet she doesn’t seem broken. Rather, she's solid and stoic with an unassuming strength. The author of this photograph is Junfu Han, a UNM Art Education graduate student and the winner of the 1st Annual International Education Week photo contest.
During the week of Nov. 11, UNM’s Global Education Office hosted International Education Week, and unlike previous years, this year’s event included the photo contest. The week focuses on the benefits of studying abroad and celebrates the diversity of UNM students. Photographers entered the contest, whose theme was “International Experiences,” with portraits, landscapes, architecture, street photography, abstract or experimental pictures. Han’s striking composition of the Latina woman in the Chihuahuita community in El Paso, TX was declared the winner with its portrayal of American mythos and Mexican experiences on the border.
"I Saw You" at Cliff’s
Who saw? Who was seen? Was it you?

I saw you in line at Cliff's waiting to take the kid's picture with Santa. I could have sworn you were the same guy I had fallen for many years ago, before you left to Marine bootcamp. I had met you at Tumbleweeds years and years ago—it might not have been you, but if it is I sure would love to know.
I Saw The Back of Your Dress As You Slipped Thru The Door...
In the final stage of my Americanization, you & your daughter were my last 'stamp of approval'. The Catholic girl in blazer and tartan plaid skirt dream wife, & her little daughter, for my instant family. Your leaving devastated me all the more because you never gave me a reason. That's all I wanted. Seeing you frequently is a constant reminder that I didn't fully achieve the American dream & that I was rejected for Patriot Act-like 'Secret Reasons'. It was cruel & unusual punishment.
Your name is merlot... You entered the caravan with your friend Kevin. You asked me to teach you to dance. We danced and our eyes met… There was definitely a connection … I saw it in your eyes, too. I asked for your number and you gave it to me. Idk if it was wrong. I cant stop thinking about you…
I miss you…
You: Beautiful, elegant, simple and entertaining-as-hell newspaper section, called, I Saw You.
Me: Eager, young, lusting reader, wanting more action. I instantly become heartbroken when I notice for yet another week, you've gone missing. You keep my dick hard but always leave me wanting more. Know that I notice, I care, I miss you.
Rowdy’s Dream Blog #324: I Get to Fly the Spaceship
I am permitted to operate the joystick control for our spaceship. It has notches for shifting in and out of different dimensions, as well as increasing the speed. I shift down into the fastest gear and the ship goes into a wild spin. The captain grabs the controls and is able to stop our spin, but is baffled. We debark at the space station where a bound and dangerous alien prisoner is being transferred from another ship onto an elevated deck. The prisoner has eight legs and screams a lot. The captain displays a hologram showing the invisible space turbulence that caused our ship to spin near the station.
