The Sunday Poem: Julie Brokken... I Met Hafez

Strange things happen on the road.  Unforgettable things.  It is one of the great themes of literature.  "I Met Hafez was inspired by actually having a flat tire as described and meeting a young man named Hafez who stopped to help me...sometimes the cosmos just hands you one."

Fall is Almost Here

"Fall in New Mexico. This is why we live here."

A co-worker said this today, and it has stuck with me.

I'm sure many other places also are nice in the fall, but this is the time when New Mexico really shines. Santa Fe just had its fiestas, the State Fair is ongoing, and roasting green…

Recovery Cat 9.17.2011

Cats are obligate (strict) carnivores and are very different from dogs in their nutritional needs... It is very important to remember that not all proteins are created equal. The protein in dry food, which is heavily plant-based, is not equal in quality to the protein in canned food, which is…

Whites of Their Eyes

Try to imagine the Blue Man Group without their makeup. First, of course, they'd have to change their name. Second, they wouldn't be nearly as funny. That layer of cobalt greasepaint creates enough distance between "them" and us to allow us to see truth.

In the Roundhouse: "I Promise I Won't Let You Down..."

CAPITOL BUILDING, SANTA FE--Governor Martinez can’t get those driver’s licenses out of her mind.  Not only is it basically a political issue for her, it seems to be an issue aimed at an audience that resides mostly out of state...and votes in national tea party conferences.  Meanwhile, here in our Land of…
