"Can You See Us NOW?"

One of the largest safe cycling advocacy events in the country will happen in Albuquerque NM September 19, 2010.

With Robby in the Land of Small

NOB HILL--"Look at the size of that clip!" my grandson exclaimed as he shoved a page from the Toys-R-Us catalog at me. I looked. That big gun must have held hundreds of little Nerf bullets. The ad said $54.99! It was called the NERF N-Strike Stampede ECS Blaster: "The first fully automatic clip system blaster!" It stated it was for "Ages 8-up." The picture showed a 5-year-old boy dwarfed by a huge yellow and orange fully automatic…

I love the sentiment...

Sign Near the Post Office I Frequent

however the dude's spelling is totally the unpopular version. This sign is in front of a tavern that went out of business and appears to be a parting shot from the owner.

The Urban Farmhouse

I'm watching some HGTV show about renovating and old farmhouse property in upstate New York. While it's a truely enchanting home and property, It always distubs me a bit when city folks "renovate" and old country house on a budget of $600,000 - demolishing the vast majority of the charm and original detail - does it really say "farm"? Will it ever BE a farm again?





Driving down Rio Grande Blvd, taking in all the McMansion ex-farmettes,… Continue

On Being an Aspiring Art Collector (on a Tight Budget)

I could never imagine making a car payment of $500/month, but I could easily imagine making art payments of that amount. This was my first thought when I learned about the Collectors Club at Albuquerque’s Tamarind Institute. Since I don’t have the disposable income at the moment, the point is moot. But someday, when the kids are educated and out of the house, I just might give… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Gary Brower... Escaping the End of the World

Did you see the news story? Two asteroids, each one big as a house, zipped between earth and the moon last Wednesday. Talk about coincidence! Just read today's poem. There are three epigraphs that preface this remarkable look at the future, but the title really says it all.



Gary Brower is one of the Directors for the… Continue

Recovery Cat 9.11.2010

Genuine, as opposed to merely superficial, theatrical or pretend individuality actually only begins with recovery from alcoholism. For there is much more to being an individual than merely claiming to be one. Floyd P. Garrett, M.D. "Your First AA Meeting: An Unofficial Guide for the Perplexed."

"... five, six, seven, eight ..."

Is it an oxymoron to talk about focused nervous energy? That’s what I see almost every time I watch a rehearsal. Performers have a specific set of goals for their shows and a limited amount of time in which to accomplish them. That’ll make anyone nervous. Artists who focus the energy from their nerves on the tasks ahead create great shows.



For example, I caught the company for DRUMLine… Continue

Getting the Boot



So, I’m standing on my front porch today watching a City vehicle stop in front of my house. Someone gets out and begins rummaging around in the back of truck, eventually producing a large orange boot and I think “wow, bummer - glad that isn’t me!” But it turns out, it IS!



But how can this be? I pay my tickets when I get them - I’m no fool. I know if I don’t they will find me eventually and the penalty will be high. In speaking with… Continue
