After graduating college I was sure I could make a living off my art. It didn't quite work out that way. I ended up working at a department store in Coronado for a while. On one particular day, as I was marking down some delicate undergarments, a cute old woman in her 80's walked up to me and tapped me on the shoulder. She couldn't have been more than 4'10" and a whopping 85 pounds. She… Continue

I often listen to audiobooks to shorten some of those long New Mexico drives. While I was complaining about the excessive expense of an audiobook vs. a book-book, someone mentioned to me that I should check out the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Public Library System where they RENT AUDIOBOOKS. FOR FREE.
What is this library you speak of with FREE BOOKS? There are… Continue

Nada, zilch. zero. No siree, Billy Bob, nothing going on here.
Take this weekend for example, Albuquerque would bore you to tears. Think New Hebron, Indiana on a Friday night. A scene so god-foresaken desolate, detassling corn feels like a party.
Take for example, Albuquerque's First Friday Artscrawl and all that… Continue

after a grueling 2+ hour slog fest by attorneys representing richard l. gonzales (the current owner of the el vado motel) and the city of albuquerque, the city council voted to make the el vado motel a city landmark. the vote was exceedingly close--5 to 4 (ken sanchez, brad winter, debbie o'malley and trudy jones all voted against the designation) but it did pass. unfortunately, this doesn't mean that the el vado will be spared the wrecking ball (and it was abundantly clear from mr. gonzales'… Continue

luxury townhouses. The vote followed more than two hours of
sometimes-disjointed discussions that Councilor Don Harris labeled “a

Being given to fits of indignation, having a tendency to create impossibly long to-do lists, and working hours that make my head feel like one of those "gently used" stuffed toys that land in donation boxes come late November, I am not always the nicest blogger. Like the TV news that I abhor, I sit down to communicate when outraged and quietly let the everyday joys passed unmarked on these pages.
Mea culpa, mea culpa.
I can't fix the problems that prompt the invective… Continue

I wrote this almost a week ago, but didn't post it because I couldn't be sure, in my pre-night-shift stupor, if it read as bitter as I felt at the time. Still not sure on that one (a disadvantage to spending time with other wry, disaffected souls is that you lose a sense of perspective on how much sarcasm is too much sarcasm for the general public), but here it is...

I don't know what the hell's going around this little burg of ours, but it hit me. Twice.
The first time was a couple of weeks ago. Felt like someone heavy was sitting on my chest, even while I was upright (thus making said sensation completely illogical - but I digress). A hot shower, proper hydration, and voila! I was good to go.
However, I've spent the last three days holed up with a heftier version of same bug. Silly me, I assumed that once you've been exposed to and… Continue
