The Sunday Poem: Erin Adair-Hodges... Where [Chekhov] Was Coming From

Even if you’re very familiar with stories written by Erin Adair-Hodges, the Alibi’s Arts and Literature Editor, you are probably not familiar with her work as a poet. Guess what? Erin was the 2004-2005 Poetry Fellow at the University of Arizona where she received her MFA. Next fall, to cap off her work at the Alibi, she’ll be teaching poetry at CNM (along with her usual English courses). Erin lives in a… Continue

Only in Barelas!

Another beautiful sunny day in Barelas! This early morning the birds were chirping, and that gave me a clue that they were extremely happy with the way things were going to be today!

My girlfriend brought over her 99 year old mother for me to watch while she shopped. What a wonderful opportunity to listen to her speak of her late husband; who I knew very well and yes indeed he was a wonderful husband, father and a perfect gentlemen! He passed at102 years of age! She suffers from… Continue

Show Me Your Topograpy and I'll Show You Mine

Experimental Geography invites everyone (ie. you) to mark up a bare-bones street map of Albuquerque with what constitutes your personal geography. Here’s one “X marks the spot” from my life: I saw kids playing jump rope with crime scene tape after a murder on Trumbull between Wyoming and Louisiana.

At the time I was working as a “handyman”... so on November 23rd, 1998, I was in… Continue

Two a Day

I am inspired by Summer of Like, a weekly post by a DCFer calling herself, well, Summer of Like. Tired of having only a few close friends in Albuquerque and relationships that last under two months, she has decided to ask out one person everywhere she goes for ten weeks. I like that idea; doing something outside of your norm to change something that you're not happy with. For me,… Continue

In celebration of 70 years since the movie’s release, Warner Home Video created a 75 foot tall, 55 feet in diameter hot air balloon that will travel across the United States this Summer from… Continue

Rationalizations & rule breaking: week 2

Sorry it has been so long since my last update on the Summer of Like. As predicted, I've already encountered some problems. First, I broke rule #2. But there were some extenuating circumstances- I've been housesitting in the south valley, and have fallen into a deep void of large, flat screen HD cable TV, and 2 lush acres of gardens and orchards right on the river...can you blame me for wanting to stay in? I also had 2 out-of-town visitors last… Continue

Perico and his Harley

Perico over Burque

Tonight we did a photo shoot with Perico and his motorcycle over the city of Albuquerque. I been wanting to do this photo shoot for a while, and we finally connected to do it. I am glad we did. The location was on the side of the road on a dirt patch with little room to move around. The wind was not a problem, although I did tip one of my lights at one time. We shot at… Continue

The Slow Death of Albuquerque Radio

When I returned to Albuquerque two weeks ago after my sophomore year away in New York City, I sat down in the car and, unable to handle the strange quietness of Albuquerque, quickly turned on the radio. I browsed across the FM dial, searching for a fresh tune to play. I didn't hear a single song that wasn't playing nine months before when I left for school. Not one. Talk about weird: it was as if the city hadn't changed at all since I left. I just shut off the radio and dealt with the… Continue

my light green thumb appreciates the true skill of others

I was thinking today about how it's finally summertime. The pool near my house brims with kids and floaties and sunscreen daily. All the animals at the Zoo can be heard chattering away late into the evening. And my tummy has started to crave all the fresh local summer produce that I yearn for during the cold winter months.

One of the many things I love about… Continue

An Angel at Trader Joe's / or how looks affect your life

I was at the local only Trader Joe's yesterday, standing in line behind a young woman who came up short. What should have been a two minute wait for me, became a complicated negotiation-- put back the tea, maybe add the pasta... And of course I was in a hurry (not really, but I'm from California and that's how we roll). I almost pulled out my credit card to pay for the difference. She looked so embarrassed. And I'd been there once. Long ago, a young college student, digging in the sofa… Continue

Poll Watching 101

I had my blog post all planned out for today. On Saturday I would walk over to the Barelas Bridge to watch the Race Down the Rio Grande and perhaps engage in a kinder gentler version of “Jay-walking” to mark the… Continue
