What should children in Albuquerque know about their environment? What experiences should they have outdoors? What outdoor skills do they need? A few weeks ago I attended a listening session

Vargas is the editor of the poetry journal Mas Tequila Review
. It just published its first issue (available for a reasonable six bucks). Purchase and publication info is… Continue

How's everbody doing?
This isn't a blog as much as it is a question: Is there anywhere in Albuquerque that offers an introduction to Islam and the Quran?
UNM Continuing Ed and the Islamic Center don't list anything like that. Nothing here on DCF.
I just want to know more about this faith given all the bad press from both media and Christian fundamentalists. Not looking for a conversion experience, just knowledge.

The more consciousness is influenced by prejudices, errors, fantasies, and infantile wishes, the more the already existing gap will widen into a neurotic dissociation and lead to a more or less artificial life, far removed from healthy instincts, nature, and truth.

(1964), p. 49.

While looking for another place to review Thai Vegan, my new favorite restaurant (and where I took my friend and client, Kerry, for lunch today), I ran across this website:
I thought some of my veggie friends (and some of YOURS!) might like to know about it - apparently it is nationwide.

This week at Outpost it's Resonance featuring vocalist, Patti Littlefield
and low brass maestro, Mark Weaver
in an unusual and experimental exploration of spatial sound: no chordal instruments, just tuba and voice, re-fashioning material ranging from standards to jazz and pop tunes to original compositions.
And for the second set of the evening, it's Equilibrio, a quartet whose concept “is based on balanced improvisation through the vehicle of original compositions… Continue

"Born in New Mexico of Indio-Mexican descent, Jimmy Santiago Baca was raised first by his grandmother and later sent to an orphanage. A runaway at age 13, it was after Baca was sentenced to five years in a maximum security prison that he began to turn his life around: he learned to read and write and unearthed a voracious passion for poetry."
Thus begins his 'official' biography as related on… Continue

With great lawyers you have discussed lepers and crooks. You've been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's books. You're very well read. It's well known. But something is happening here and you don't know what it is. do you, Mister Jones?

I have to admit that I am totally in love with the food at Thai Vegan, which opened last week at Osuna near San Mateo.
I confess - I've had 4 meals in the past 5 days there!!!
As a vegetarian (not vegan), the menu is diverse, the "faux" meat is delicious, and there are plenty of vegetable-only dishes to choose from too.
I've sampled the Pad Thai, the spring rolls, the golden tofu appetizer, the Cashew "Chicken", the fresh Ginger stir fry, the tempura vegetables,… Continue
