It might be a really good idea, especially in an area that has developed a strategic economy based on values that appeal to the more good-looking aspects of architecture and lauds the arts and crafts — in fact it would be a great idea — to make decisions that begin with an aesthetic filter as a major goal and then make careful compromises knowing how things look. That we, we do not have to fight constantly against 50-acre blemishes on what should be sacred — La Bajada querencia and cell towers as we approach the town. Make beautiful things, sell beautiful things in beautiful places with beautiful landscapes. What is wrong with “walking the beautiful trail” the Navajos talk about and stop cutting down peach orchards to achieve our goals, as Kit Carson did, or torching our forests.
