DimeStories of Albuquerque: Kraig Pickel

Posted on May 16, 2016 at 10:00am 1 Comment

I first met Kraig Pickel at the Taos Summer Writers’ Conference.*  When I found out he lived in Albuquerque I invited him to DimeStories and he soon became a regular—until he got busy working on his MFA in creative writing from Vermont College…


DimeStories of Albuquerque: Jennifer Lynn Krohn

Posted on May 2, 2016 at 10:30am 1 Comment

I met Jennifer Lynn Krohn when we were in graduate school together at UNM.  Jenn, a shy bookish girl with glasses, reminded me of my younger self, but much smarter.  And braver:  Jenn was a cheerleader in 4th grade! and made the leap to "writer" much earlier than I…


DimeStories of Albuquerque: Jessica Atcherley

Jessica Atcherley is a photographer and writer living in the “Land of Entrapment”. On rare occasions she’s made international escapes, most of which turn into fiascos, rich with writing fodder. She makes a mean cappuccino which pairs well with pen and paper.…


DimeStories of Albuquerque: Kim Adonna

Posted on March 28, 2016 at 9:30am 2 Comments

Kim Adonna began attending DimeStories regularly a little over a year ago. In fact, I believe her first time netted her a selection of “Best Of” for her story “Cassette Tape Poem.” I teased her about reading her story with the cadence of a poet….  and she admitted she is a poet.  Thankfully for DimeStories, she…


DimeStories of Albuquerque: Merimee Moffitt

Posted on March 14, 2016 at 10:00am 2 Comments

I met Merimee back in 2009 when poet Richard Vargas, a colleague of mine in UNM’s MFA program, introduced us. He knew I wanted to start an open mic for prose, DimeStories, and knew Merimee would be a great community resource for me. Without Merimee’s…

Thank you for the Lead & Coal/ART post. I'm also very glad to see that University Heights is active and engaged on these issues. I'll plan to attend the meeting next Tuesday.

I haven't seen much evidence for similar action on the part of Silver Hill - is this an accurate perception or are there things bubbling under the surface? (I know the SHNA isn't always great about spreading the word to those of us on Lead). If my assessment is accurate, what course of action could Silver Hill folks take to get involved?

I keep forgetting to drop you a note and it's been a couple of weeks, but I wanted to say "thanks" from one of your neighbors for speaking up in the alibi about the lead/coal project.

You took a good photo of me at the Dia de los Muertos parade--I am carrying the coffin and have my face painted like a skull ;). I would like it if you sent me a jpeg of that photo! I am not very photogenic, and it's the best one yet! Thanks!

Hi JeSais-
I just realized I never got back to you about the rain barrels after you were nice enough to respond to my questions. Thanks again for your help. The story appeared in the Home section on July 25.

Hello JeSais-
I noticed your post about rain barrels and thought I would see which you ended up purchasing. I am working on a story on choosing rain barrels for the Albuquerque Journal's Home section and your insight would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Amanda Schoenberg

My husband and I moved to Albuquerque from San Diego in November, so this is our first spring here too. It seems that suddenly the blooms are everywhere, white, yellow and purple. I'm not sure what they are (cherry trees, etc?) I am hoping that next year I won't have allergies; I've been told it takes a year or so to become sensitive to pollens.

Thanks for walking me through the way to resign from The Single Life Group! I probably am a better fit among the Cat People Group, which I don't know if there is one, but I wouldn't bet against it. Je ne connais pas la plupart des choses, but I do know cats cannot love.

Thank you so much for your input. I have changed his diet and he eats dry food specifically for diabetic cats, which is the mainstay of his diet, and then I give him Fancy Feast before his insulin shots. He does have neuropathy in his back legs, which concerns me. He first showed signs of diabetes in June, but he's also hyperthyroid and I thought his weight loss and water drinking were attributable to that. It was his neuropathy that caught my attention in October. He had dental surgery in May and lab work done at that time, and his glucose was normal. Perhaps the surgery tipped him over the edge, or something? I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think he was diabetic for a long time before it was caught. Right now he's only on one unit of insulin twice a day and he's been checked for a UTI.

Again, thanks, and I may have some questions for you as I journey down this path with him. He's such a sweet boy and I want him around as long as possible.
