I think growing up I never knew what beauty really was. Looking back at childhood pictures, I realize that I didn’t really acknowledge the common notions of fashion, beauty, or mainstream iconology. In the past few months I have spent an ample amount of time looking at family photos, so this is something that has been on my mind a great deal. Those of you who know me best know that this was spawned by some extreme family drama culminating in the… Continue

Today I attended a visit to the Burque Underworld with the Flickr group.

It was a nice day and no rain in the forcast, perfect to visit the tunnels in the diversion channels.
It was a little wet, but not bad at all.
We saw a lot of grafitti.…

Tomorrow our State legislature is hearing testimony and possibly voting on a domestic partnership bill. Gov. Richardson has promised to pass it, and it looks like we finally have the votes for this important civil rights law to pass. I was listening to the local big Christian radio station, and, as usual, they are resorting to fear tactics to try to motivate listeners to call their congresspersons saying, "we must act now to protect our children and our grandchildren!" uh, yeah, from what? My… Continue

TULANE & COAL SE--There will be winners and losers in the coming year. Here's my look at what's hot and what's not next year in the Duke City. Remember, although these predictions are a bargain (being worth approximately 20 times what they cost you) do not make any life changing decisions without professional advice.

You posted an interest in my Music, and asked to be a friend.
I couldn't find a way to email you, so I am posting this.
I was a founding member of the Last Mile Ramblers in the early 70's. Our final reunion was in Spring 2007 at the Kimo Theater in Albuquerque. I have released 4 CD's from our 2 LP's, and many live recordings throughout the years.
There is also a DVD from our 2007 reunion, as a limited edition.
Since 1996 I have tried to stay musically active with a smaller… Continue

I took a half day of vacation to have an HVAC person and a locksmith come out to my new house. One canceled, and the other one was running so late that I would have had to cancel my evening clients to accomodate them. (He called after the time that he was supposed to be at my house to let me know he was running late.)
I have no more days off. The next people are going to have to come out on a Saturday.

It's puppy season! Okay, I guess the shelters would tell you it's sort of always puppy season, but spring is, after all not only puppy time, but the perfect time for a new friend of the canine persuasion. You did make that obligatory New Year's resolution to lose weight and exercise more, right? Continue

Like many others I decided to go on a diet this year as part of my New Year's Resolution. I am about 40 pounds over where I'd optimally like to be, and I am not that good at dieting, so I tried to make the resolution something I could stick to by saying I wouldn't "diet" per se, but push myself toward a healthier lifestyle with eating and exercise. A little at a time, small steps I could handle. I wasn't doing badly, but there also was no epiphany either. If I was going to lose any weight or… Continue

In one of the many enewsletters I get came this disturbing piece of news for anyone who cares about the arts community: The House Appropriations and Finance Committee will meet Wednesday, January 28 at 1:30 p.m. to vote on the budget proposals submitted by the State of New Mexico's Legislative Finance Committee and the Executive Branch. The LFC recommends reducing New Mexico Arts
budget by $400,000 and the… Continue

For me, the first emotional hit of the inauguration ceremony was hearing Aretha Franklin sing “My Country ’Tis Of Thee,” with the gospel chorus swelling up in the background. When she sang “land where my fathers died,” I wondered about that line and what it meant in terms of Aretha’s American ancestry.
It turns out that Aretha’s father, Clarence “C. L.” Franklin, was from Sunflower County, Mississippi, in the Delta, home of blues masters BB King and Charlie Patton (and also of Archie… Continue

...and it looked something like this drawing by Jim Woodring
"Jones! Are you trippin?"
"I don't know, man."
Jones and acid went together about as well as Jones and booze, which is to say not at all.
It was at a party in, I think, December of… Continue

I am up far too early for having gone to bed at approximately 4 am. I hold the looming thought of the inevitability of going to Lowes today at bay. My camera is full, my coffee is warm, and giddy girls carry on downstairs. Last night is almost like a dream at this point. Mostly a good dream except for a place I won’t mention by name. Hey, in the words of Doris Day… “… Continue

ACOMA ROOM, ABQ CIVIC CENTER--Michael Cadigan spoke on a panel this morning whose topic was "Tools and Strategies for Addressing Climate Change at the Local Level." Towards the end of his segment he announced that Obama's stimulus package contained an interstate off-ramp for the SunCal development southwest of the city. Not only will it be an interchange in the middle of nowhere, it "will be 15 miles from people's jobs." Cadigan characterized the… Continue
