That Person at the Door

NOB HILL--When the doorbell rang last week I answered it.  Standing on the other side of my screen door was Joseph Benevidez.  “I’m looking for work,” he said.  “Do you need someone to rake your leaves?”



I had been waiting for someone just like Joseph to show up.  “Sure,”  I answered.  Our yard was full…

Thanksgiving: A 2014 Primer

This Thursday, we celebrate a national holiday which, for the bulk of us, means we, at minimum, get to stay home from work.



For many of us, too, it means that someone in our household will be up early prepping or checking on a turkey in the oven at unforgiving hours.  …

Morning Fix: Days of Meat and Stuffings

  • I'm already in the Thanksgiving Day mode (which feels a little bit like senioritis, truth be told). This holiday can be dangerous to pets (and not just to small dachshunds who get underfoot when the turkey's coming out of the oven -- I'm looking at you, childhood pet…

The Sunday Poem: Gary Brower...

Gary Brower is a familiar face at almost any New Mexico poetry venue, and he also travels widely to read his work. We know him not only as a fine poet, but also as the editor of Malpais Review, an exciting local poetry journal that puts out quarterly issues of up to 300 pages and has moved far…

Burque Music Scene: Mystic Vision

While my heart will always belong to the blues, reggae is a close second.   The Harder They Come soundtrack was one of my favorite albums as a kid and is still in constant rotation in my playlists.  I love reggae.

Back in 1993, three La Cueva students felt the same way about reggae and…

It's the weekend! Should we meet up at Dave & Buster's?

Maybe not.

Last weekend ten of us met up at Albuquerque's latest national chain to shoot zombies, eat bar food, and drink alcoholic beverages. All three things happened, it's true. But here's why none of us want to return.

  1. Depending when you arrive, the wait outside can be awful. True, D&B has just opened and is experiencing the classic ABQ opening month bump. Four members of our group showed up at 4:30 (this was on Saturday) while the rest straggled…

Homegrown Hoops Talent on Display at ENMU-WNMU Small College Games Saturday (11/22) at Pit

It's great to see two of New Mexico's four rural colleges from opposite sides of the state get together in the big city  -- Albuquerque -- for a basketball doubleheader featuring the men's and women's teams.

Hopefully there will be a big crowd, with Albuquerqueans on the rosters of these teams from Silver City (Western New Mexico University) and Portales (Eastern New Mexico University).. About half of the roster members are New Mexicans, unlike…

Walking on broken glass

One of my favorite spots in Albuquerque is a dump. Literally.

It's hard to believe the bosque is home to one of Albuquerque's old dumps, but it's a glorious open air mosaic surrounded by a canopy of cottonwoods. What's really fun is that it predates the widespread use of plastic and foam, so it's almost all…
