Sweet endings

Alas, the Tricklock Revolutions International Theatre Festival has wrapped up another year and we must simply wait until next January. But they saved the best for last.

"One" was truly one of the most magical, memorable productions I have seen in a very long time. Few companies so deftly use sound, movement, lighting and acting to draw us into an… Continue

A Proper Title Eludes Me, So This Will Have To Do

Tonight we'll be taking delivery of a new old used desk. A guy named Archie (I think) from Thrift Town on Menaul offered to bring it to us since the desk is not disassembleable (I doubt that's a real word, actually, unless it is once it's published, in which case I deem it open source; have fun!), and therefore has not a hope of fitting into the Yaris.

The desk at which I'm currently sitting is a cherry veneer executive-style… Continue

Born in New York City, Oyama has a Master's degree in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. He lives in NE Albuquerque.

Full Moon & Mars

JUST-in from SpaceWeather.com:->FULL MOON AND MARS: Friday night's full Moon is the biggest and brightest full Moon of the year. It's a "perigee Moon," as much as 14% wider and 30% brighter than other full Moons you'll see later in 2010.

But that's not all. Mars is having a close encounter with Earth, and on Friday night, Jan. 29th, it will join the Moon for an all-night-long conjunction.

May be moving to Albuquerque soon

I might be moving to Albuquerque in Sept or Oct. I have wanted to live there for many years and now finally I might get the chance to do so. If I come there I will be working near the intersection of I-25 and Osuna. Can someone recommend a good apartment complex near there. I will probably live in an apartment for 9 months to a year and then my wife will join me and we'll buy a house. Thanks

It's been a while since I posted that question, and the opportunity to move to Albuquerque… Continue

Lunch at Cocina Azul

12th & Mountain NW--It is hard not to have noticed the interest in this corner location ever since the announced closing of the Sunshine Cafe over a month ago. The discussion here on the DCF has generated 59 replies! Now Cocina Azul has opened in the same spot. MaryAnn and I stopped by for lunch last Sunday.

It was sort of an accidental visit: we were hungry and there it was. The building still has those wonderful windows that look out… Continue
