Cece Spoke to Yun this morning about the group Doctors Without Borders. She told Yun about the group and Yun was already familiar with it. They both agreed to feature a donation button on this blog so that if you want to , you can donate to their relief efforts in Haiti.
From Doctors Without Borders web site, we have included this information:

What’s the difference between being massaged and watching the movie The Beautiful Mind? For Yun, it is the same experience… in her mind that is.
She visited her most wonderful massage therapist Stephanie. Stephanie has this amazing ability to tell which muscle or tendon are not behaving, or are out of the alignment. She will say with her eyes closed (Yun is guessing): “Here you are. This is it!” Wham, she… Continue

Many of you know that Yun and I ride our bicycles and raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. We raise money that goes to fund cancer research. We do this by riding 100 mile bike rides. Currently, we have a friend Catherine who is doing this for the first time. She is getting ready to start her training and preparation for this journey. Her sister has cancer. You can view her web site here and make a… Continue
Back in the spring of 2003, my first friend in Albuquerque introduced me to an activity I'd never heard of: international folk dancing. I tried it out and have been hooked ever since. The variety is astonishing. There are actually a handful of social dance groups in town that do international folk dances, and between them you can learn dances from nearly every country and ethnic group on Earth, from Azerbaijan and Bedouin to Pakistani and West African to various styles of Gypsy. Many of these… Continue

A wood-burning cook stove is the total opposite of that funky electric Hotpoint you had in your first apartment. There are tricks to using one but once you know how, it becomes a partner in turning a cold room into a sweet-smelling, warm kitchen. No wonder they are passed down from generation to generation.

“I am Glad You’re not Planning to Die! Thank you!” This was the 2 sentence sarcastic email I received from my sister after she received all 13 pages of my advanced directives, my living will and the “how tos” of fish and cat care. …also my plans for the funeral in case the worst happened in surgery.
You see, my sissy prefers to look on the bright happy… Continue

The world is donating money in small quantities to organizations like American Red Cross, but it MUST be realized that donations for a disaster like this present one in Haiti go into the books for fiscal year 2010, and that of the yearly budget, a large amount that I estimate at 50% of their operating budget goes into ADVERTISING. Maybe I’m wrong, but the way that I see it, for every dollar that you donate to ARC, 50 cents goes to yearly advertising, and a small slice goes to relief efforts… Continue
From Two Whos: Just like her contact lens mysteriously disappeared from her hand (for the original event, see previous post), it reappeared magically several days later right in front of Yun’s eyes. It was almost like a magic trick! Now you see it, now you don’t!
It was New Years Day, 2010. Yun was doing the house cleaning. Bending slightly over her sink trying to wipe off the stain behind the faucet, and VOILA! There was her lost… Continue

Two days ago, on January 12th, 2010, grain prices took a tumble. There is at this very moment a surplus on Wheat, soybean, and corn. Corn tumbled 30 cents to $3.925/Bushel (Roughly $160 a ton). Soybeans plummeted 32 cents a bushel to end the day at about $400 a ton. Wheat dropped 6.4% to land at about $215 a ton. Just about everyone in the world eats these grains every day, and would you know that the ancestors of all wheat now eaten were first grown near a fascinating little place called… Continue

In about 7 hours I'll be premiering a new one-man show, "Four Interludes". It's at least the fourth solo show I've "Excavated" within the past ten years during the Revolutions International Theatre Festival... and probably my favorite so far.
It's the most honest I've been as an actor, writer or artist in a LONG while. It's kinda scary. But then, isn't that the point? To challenge myself, to look deeper into myself, to share something with the world? That's what we do as artists. And… Continue

The very first humans who traveled to the North American continent may have been here as early as 18,000 years ago. But what route did they take and did they leave any physical evidence of their journey?
James Dixon, the director of the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology at UNM spends part of his summers in the glaciers of Alaska, looking for evidence of early man. He will be talking about his experiences on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. in Room 105 of the Hibben Building on the UNM Main… Continue
I’ve been thinking a lot about cooperation lately. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’ve been watching the lack of cooperation in Congress and am hoping for better.
Whatever the roots, my thoughts tend toward the performing arts. Artists are known for their egos and their temperaments, but what they should be known for instead is their cooperative attitude, especially those in the performing arts. Yes, there are those whose egos become impediments to cooperation, but most performers I’ve… Continue
