The Kitten That Rescued Us

My wife had just finished swimming at our community’s pool and was walking over to her car.  She heard some commotion and looked up to see an adult cat chasing another cat.  The cat being chased dropped something from its mouth and sped away with the other cat in hot pursuit.  My wife went over to look…

The Sunday Poem: Michael C. Ford

Michael C. Ford, frequent visitor to Albuquerque, was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1939. He moved with his parents to Pasadena, California just as World War II was ending.

Burque Music Scene: Wet Sox

The Wet Sox.  Looking at all the Wet Sox videos makes me wish I had had a fake ID back in the day.  These guys were the best of the best.  I am fortunate to know John Cline who did their live sound and produced all their audio and video recordings.  He said "We were pretty technically sophisticated, we set up television monitors…

Just When You Think It's All Going to Work Out..

I haven't dropped a line at DCF for a while but I got an email from Adelita about a post I wrote eons ago and here I am.

I left ABQ in 2010 for Virginia and since then, I've relocated to the Seattle area. I've been back to ABQ since my mamacita still lives there and she's had some medical issues that brought me back. I miss ABQ. I miss my house that I fixed up, thinking I was going to live there until I died. Life has a way of messing with you, though. I've been from New Mexico to…

Tricklock Serves Up Engaging Monologues For Revolutions

Eons ago, I lived in community for a year as a volunteer in inner-city Milwaukee. I thought the tough part would be constant crime and working on issues of poverty.

What I found out was that living with other people was the biggest “growth experience” of the year.

My boyfriend at the time, now my…

At last! NM AG releases behavioral health audit.

After, I don't know, a billion years of waiting, New Mexicans can finally read the audit of our state's behavioral health providers that has led to a takeover by Arizona providers, subsequent closures, and a loss of service to many former patients.

  • But yes, we can now read all of the many, many pages of it here. …

At the Urban Homestead

"Urban Homestead".  In spite of my allergy to trendy catch-phrases, I suppose that best describes what my husband Tom and I are working on - increasing our self-reliance without abandoning modern life completely.  (one thing I learned when in the 70's I tucked my Mother Earth News…
