Heavenly father, divine mother, saints and sages of all the ages, I bow to you. Thank you for this day; may I do Your will and make beauty around me.
I have been in Albuquerque close to 4 months now, having moved here from Jamaica. I had lived here for two months in 1990 when Kirk (my then husband) and I had moved here…Continue

50,000 ceramic bones covered downtown Fourth Street between Central and Gold all day Saturday. One Million Bones, an Albuquerque-based non-profit organization, created the temporary exhibit to call attention to worldwide genocide.
The group’s website emphasizes genocide in Sudan, the…Continue
Hemingway once said, "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." That is exactly the way many of us think about being in New Mexico's wilderness. You take it with you…Continue
We have learnt from the struggles of our past during the dark days of dictatorship that there is no alternative to building a free and democratic society and ensuring the supremacy of international humanitarian law and human rights declarations. This can only be achieved through dialogue,…Continue

They love to play with fuzzy mice and their favorite food is turkey flavored baby food. I would like to place them…Continue

First and foremost, I am not arguing that New Mexico’s 49th place ranking in graduation rates is not a problem. It is a big problem. School reform, however, cannot be based on simple statistics. We have been running down that path for over a decade now and have nothing but failure to show for it. Therefore, before we react in any way to our 49th place ranking, we had better stop to first understand what that number does not tell us. Why? Because it does not tell us what the problem is. …Continue

Our neighborhood park was vandalized again. Some dumb thug thinks it’s awesome to drive through the park. Usually, he (can gender be in doubt?) turns donuts, destroying grass. This time, he destroyed a small tree and a trash can.
Someone must know who this idiot is. Turn him…Continue

In a poem full of startling images, a quiet line in this poem captures the story of so many of us. We may wonder about who is really being hypnotized here, but "He missed the war that was meant for him." just leaps from the page. Welcome, Jules, to the Land of Enchantment. She…Continue
Progressive Era reformers looked to the primary election as a way to measure popular opinion of candidates, as opposed to the opinion of the bosses. In 1910, Oregon became the first state to establish a presidential preference primary, which requires delegates to the National Convention to support the…Continue
The Jemez, whose name means simply "people," must have been shocked when Coronado showed up, revealing to them that they — the Jemez — were not the only people, that the name they had chosen for themselves would have to be expanded to include these other “people” or they would have to somehow distinguish those…Continue
While running endless errands during work I found a new little hole in the wall. The food is great, service is fantastic, and the prices beat most restaurant in town.
Entrees range from $5.95 to $8.95.
And they have an espresso bar with trained baristas. WOW!
It's Cafe Lush.
They are open Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. They will soon be open on Saturday and maybe even Sunday, assuming the staff doesn't…Continue
How could God, with His busy schedule, find time to rest on the seventh day? Maybe in a less populated world He didn't have as much to think about.
Kenneth P. Gurney lives in Albuquerque with his beloved Dianne. For Kenneth's full bio, publication notes and available…Continue
Consider how many stories you encounter every day. Include in your count all the sources for stories you have: television, radio, iPods, computers, phones, newspapers, magazines, other people. Make sure you take into account all the forms stories take: movies, videos, commercials, jokes, songs, news, plays, TV…Continue
America was founded on the strength of an idea, not our military might. Our first 'warriors' were pamphleteers. In today's world Larry Goodell looks at our strengths once more...and answers the question, "Is poetry worth writing?"
Once called "The Aristophanes of the Piñon-Juniper…Continue
