Best Intentions

Today's post was going to be an insightful piece on the toxic world we live in here, with thoughtful examinations of three main stories that bumped around in my brain recently. All day, while focusing on occupational tasks, I kept trying to think of phrases and fragments to take with me, in order to use them here, for your collective benefit. My provocative post for this week was going to relate divers personal… Continue

Dark Enough

Lisa Gill's work is beloved among poets in New Mexico. In part this is because, like New York poet Frank O’Hara, Gill is a permission-giver (though it isn't likely O'Hara's "hum-colored cabs" will appear anywhere in a Gill poem). By example, her work indirectly instructs the reader what can be done within the poem, not what can't.

At the same time, her work exemplifies both freedom and rigor, whimsy and heft, and ebullience and… Continue

Two Chinese Shy

Taking on challenges is part of the territory when you direct a show. This summer, I'm directing Thoroughly Modern Millie for Musical Theatre Southwest, and I may be facing one of the most unusual challenges I've ever tackled: I'm looking for two Chinese men for the show.

The only actor I know who… Continue

A Match Struck, or How Youtube Got Crafty

Before Words Afire's 10th Anniversary came matchmaking----writers in UNM's MFA for dramatic writing were partnered with directors. Was it love at first sight? I don't know, but during their ten-minute youtube interviews with Chloe Cousin, the rapport between director and writer for each of the five works being showcased this year was palpable.

And distinct.

And… Continue

El Paisa and the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Library System

One place that my husband and I love to go to get great food is El Paisa. It is located at 820 Bridge SW. They serve Mexican food such as burritos, tacos and tortas. Before El Paisa became a restaurant it started as a cart that the owner would sell burritos out of. I personally really like their chile relleno burritos and their carne asada tacos. My husband's fav is the menudo (I can't stand the stuff but he is weird like that). The food is… Continue

A Tree for a Memory

May Day is almost here. The trees are leafed out, pollen is blowing in the wind and flowers are unfurling everywhere. I just planted a 4-in-1 apple tree in my backyard and it reminded me of something my mother mentioned. She has noticed the trees in the local parks that have plaques underneath them. Many of these are memorials to loved ones. With the city's stately elms now… Continue

Public Image Albuquerque, Pre-Simpsons

I ran across a tidy little clip reel of Bugs Bunny's "Albuquerque" quotes. I have no idea if it's comprehensive, nor when the individual scenes date from, but I began to wonder if this could have been the first popular culture reference point for the Duke City. I mean, since the cartoon began in the 40's and seemingly these likely date from the 60's or 70's at the latest, what could have come… Continue

Another Good Use of Ink During Poetry Month

I was still slathering a very itchy new tattoo on my forearm with lotion--a tattoo I'd been lucky enough to get from Serena Lander in Suzanne Sbarge's art studio--when I lucked onto The Tattooed Poets Project. I’d been googling Brendan Constantine, visiting writer at Loyola Marymount University, who will be coming to… Continue
