This would be my fourth or fifth blog space if I chose to upkeep it. The likelihood is low, since on top of blogging I raise a child, work 2 jobs, and am a full-time grad student. So, at the risk of being an annoying self-promoter (no one cares more about you than you, so promote yourself!), I will point you in the direction of my most recent and most serious blogging effort: http://senoritaruth.com. I have very exciting ideas and topics planned, so add it to your RSS feeder and check in… Continue

A fire in the Manzano's is visible (well the smoke is visible, really) from my balcony this "Tax Tuesday" AM.

The Panther by Rainer maria Rilke
His gaze has from the passing of the bars
become so tired, that it holds nothing more.
It seems to him there are a thousand bars
and behind a thousand bars no world.
The supple pace of powerful soft strides,
turning in the very smallest circle,
is like a dance of strength around a center
in which a great will stands numbed.
Only sometimes the curtain of the pupils
soundlessly slides up-. Then… Continue

NOB HILL--Long before the invention of the wheel, the inhabitants of this planet noticed that some things float. And sometime between this observation and when Michael Corleone emerged from a restaurant bathroom with a loaded revolver in The Godfather...sometime in there, men started sticking their heads into tanks and playing around with their float valves. Yes...finally something that men have understood since childhood: floaters.… Continue

I spent a good chunk of this weekend running errands from the North Valley to Barelas. I couldn’t help noticing that the lilacs are everywhere this time of year.
Whenever I see lilacs, I am reminded of Walt Whitman’s moving elegy to Abraham Lincoln
Oddly enough, I never made the connection between lilacs blooming and the time of year that Lincoln’s assassination must have… Continue

Now, in addition to here, my personal page, tribes, myspace ( for the teenage niece) and a private chat site I have started a Live Journal
. I can bore endless persons on many pages, could it be that modern adults are lonely? Yet I have a good number of friends I see regularly . . . perhaps it is plain laziness, we can feel like we are interacting while in our bathrobes (mine is a Japanese cat print kimono I made myself) none the less I have… Continue

This Sunday reminded me why this town totally rocks. Brunch at Nob Hill Bar & Grill
, the Zen Garden and tulips at the Biopark
and fishies at the Aquarium
. Who says there's nothing to do in this town?
If you are wondering, Nob Hill Bar & Grill brunch was excellent. Prime rib AND eggs benedict! and Truffles! and Mimosas! I was in heaven, and… Continue

So, as I was saying I am a huge believer in students getting an education. Not that college is the answer for everyone, But I believe that it provides most with a better opportunity than not having an education. Because of my own experiences, I encourage my students to always do their best and try to ignore the chaos that swims around them in high school.
In my classes, my key for motivating my students is to create a connection with my students. Towards that end, I use humor,… Continue

One of the primary focus areas of SWOP youth is to educate high school students about the realities of war, and the ramifications of military service. They spend a lot of time talking with young people… Continue

Okay, so I became a teacher and had my eyes opened. But prior to that I was a parent of two kids that we sent to public school. (If you have read my previous posts you would know that I was one of those kids that teachers hate. I was rude, disrespectful and cut class very frequently. I was also blessed and overcame the trouble I caused myself). We sent our kids to school with specific orders to be respectful, behave and do their best. We didn't really have to tell our kids to behave. But they… Continue

From this BoingBoing post
"...if the objective is to make as much money as possible from red-light cameras, the best thing to do is shorten the yellow signal, eliminate the pause, and enrich the city coffers (even as you kill its citizens)."
A brief overview of the safety/red-light-camera-for-profit issue can be found… Continue

I've just returned from the home opener of the Albuquerque Isotopes, a highly entertaining affair, despite the fact that it was flipping cold the whole night, and the fact that the Isotopes lost. Still, it was baseball, glorious baseball, played live before me in a beautiful stadium. The trappings of Summer were there, despite being buried under the freakishly glacial conditions, and having spent the past five months looking forward to the opener, I have to say I came away sated.

April 11, 2008- It's 3pm and I'm at the Rio Grande Nature Center. I had a small mountain of beignets for breakfast and it's time to work them off. The nature center provides good access to the bike trail that runs along the east side of the Rio Grande. There are also parking lots on Alameda and Central for this purpose, but I was in the area. If you've never been there before, get on Candelaria and head west. When you come to the end, you're there.
In a few weeks, the Nature Center… Continue
