So, what does it mean when you become someone's friend on here, besides feeling honored (although that's plenty enough)? Am I supposed to invite y'all over for dinner? :)
I heard we're supposed to be affected by the remnants of Dolly. Back when I lived in Cajun country, I made it through 5 years without getting hit by a hurricane until one month before I moved back here...along came Danny.
Danny was a minimal hurricane and like your first love, you never forget your first… Continue

The Beijing Olympics are just two weeks away, and Rio Rancho native / La Cueva HS graduate Joey Hagerty is representing our fair town on the Men's Gymnastics team. Joey's parents and sister are planning to go to Beijing to cheer him on as he lives his dream, and you can help!
There is going to be a car wash this weekend to help raise funds for the Hagerty family at the Auto Zone on Paseo del Norte near Louisiana. There will be Lobo… Continue

Your art, that is.
This is a "quick" post about what artists often consider the really boring and unnecessary part of making their art. But take it from me: it is oh so necessary, and you are shooting yourself in the foot if you don't take time to put on these little finishing touches.
You know, the totally unnecessary stuff, like:
-Signing your work
-Titling your work
-Dating your work (not romantically, unless...)
-Storing your work

I've been noticing an awful lot of road construction around Albuquerque lately. This could be because I'd been away for almost two weeks, then I came back and the construction seems to have exploded. It reminded me of some favorite memories growing up, and since some friends of mine had asked, I posted it on my personal blog.
I've so… Continue

So, I'm going to be spending a LOT of time at Isotopes Park this weekend. How much time? Well, I was at tonight's game. And I'll be at tomorrow's night's, too. And Saturday's. And Sunday's. Kind of a good thing I like baseball, eh?
Well, if the rest of the games are as good as tonight's, I'll be in good shape.
Of course, if the rest of the games start off like tonight's that might be bad. See, after breezing through the first inning, the 'Topes ran into some trouble in the… Continue

I went to see Cathryn McGill sing in Old Town last night. The performance was part of the New Mexico Jazz Festival. I first heard her on KUNM talking about the festival, and was interested enough to at least check out the free performance. I was really impressed by her talent. She sang a variety of songs, mostly in the R&B vein but some jazz and blues. I found several of her original compositions compelling, especially one she wrote for her mother "The Hand That Rocked My Cradle". She has a… Continue

Today Karlita and I visited the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum
It's overwhelming---more than I am emotionally able to stand.
So I believe that I act in the spirit of Almighty God; by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
Although I follow and believe the teachings of Jesus, I do not call… Continue

I remembered everything else: a bottle of water, my hat, my car keys, sunglasses, sun screen, my mother. But I forgot my camera. In searching Flickr for Creative Commons photos to use to illustrate this post, I came across a collection from an old friend from Arkansas (thanks, Clinton Steeds
!). Albuquerque is such a "small world" town that I accidentally run into people who don't even live… Continue

This journey of discovering bits and pieces of 'Burque has been so much fun. For those of you that missed my post last week
