"I love the praise poem, the circles both small and large, the arms wrapped around the mother,  the chasing up and down for neither has but wants from the other--beautiful, global, mother/daughter poem.  Thank you"

The Sunday Poem: Pamela Nomura...

Pamela Nomura came to Hartford, Connecticut via Hawaii, and calls both home. Recently, she spent time in the Southwest, exploring Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde, and the Chama Valley. She feels a deep identification with the ancient peoples who inhabited this landscape, and something tells me she will be back. She says: “My…See More

"This is a great piece, Jon. So energizing and inspiring to read about a man like this, who still takes great pleasure in living to the full."

"Two lovely poems that rest on the intersection of past and present. There's no escape our history, even if it is based on false premises. Thanks for sharing these."

The Sunday Poem: John Roche...

Posted on October 5, 2014 at 7:00am 5 Comments

John Roche is a familiar face in Albuquerque ever since he and Jules Nyquist became a couple. He’d been here before, checking out the scene, but now we can happily count on a more steady presence. Rumor has it he is selling his house back east, and will move here when that’s happened. With a talent for linking cross-country…

Jules Nyquist arrived in Albuquerque from Minneapolis just over three years ago.

The Sunday Poem V.B. Price...

Posted on September 21, 2014 at 7:00am 4 Comments

I could go on at great length about V.B. Price, his Hollywood childhood, many hats (all worn thoughtfully, successfully and elegantly), deep love for and knowledge of New Mexico, life in poetry, meaningful career in the best sort of journalism, and teacher of philosophy to many generations of students. I could try to…

Was it you who posted the Frida and Diego poem? Stunning! I sent copies to a dozen friends. In fact that poem , which I read on Jon Knudson's blog, was a major reason I tracked down Duke City. The other reason is that if I ever move back to the States, it would be to live in or around Albuquerque.

Thanks for your response to my post about Harrison Ridley. Don't know if you're from Philly and knew of him but, well, he was a beautiful soul.
