White to Night

Late on Friday afternoon I gathered my gear together and set out for the summit of the Sandias.  I had attempted the trek the day before but a persistant cloud covered the mountain and ruined any chance for good photos.  

I went in search of two things, the golden hour (more like 10 minutes at this time of year)…

Gracie's first week with us.....

Back in August, my wife was walking over to her car after going swimming in our development.  She noticed two adult cats chasing each other across the street.  One cat (turned out to be the male cat in the neighborhood) dropped what he was carrying in his mouth while being chased by the other cat.  My wife went over and picked up this little, four week old, 13 oz. scared kitten and brought it home.  After a Vet visit that afternoon, we cancelled our vacation plans for the weekend and adopted…

The Sunday Poem: Renny Golden

I knew about Renny Golden long before we met. I had read her first poetry collection, back in the 1980s, because the other poet with whom she collaborated on that book had a daughter who was a good friend of my youngest daughter—the intergenerational webs that encircled and uplifted us back then. As…

Burque Music Scene: Memphis P. Tails

It's no secret that I am a major blueshead.  When I want to hear some scorching, in-your-face, screaming blues guitar, I go listen to the Memphis P. Tails.  Many members of this band have come and gone, but the mainstay has always been guitarist Darin Goldston.  This is one hard working band.  Whether playing blues festivals or Molly's up in Tijeras, they never…

A Landmark on I-25 South of Town is Coming Down as I type....

If you've ever headed south on I-25 from ABQ, you may have seen it.  At the second exit for Belen, there is......or was......a large water tank on the west side of the highway with a huge Belen High School Eagle painted on it.  

Well, it's coming down today. Supposedly it was built in 1952.  It hasn't been…

Big Giant Hearts

Hearts, love, and kisses have been on my mind a lot lately, both the real kind and also the Valentine-y kind.  In a couple of weeks (24 days, to be exact) we will celebrate St. Valentine’s Day.  I am one of those types who doesn’t care if it is a Hallmark holiday, I like getting mushy cards and…

To Wet Your Appetite.....

Yes, it snowed last night.  I can confirm that because I live in Belen where we don't have a "snow hole" created by the winds screaming westward through Tijeras Canyon.  So, I wouldn't recommend hitting the road today but, I hope this video wets your appetite for Exploring New Mexico later in the year!

This is some of my favorite pavement in New Mexico!  …
