I met the coolest man in my neighborhood. Thanks to my neighbor Candice
, I was introduced to Reuben Aragon. Reuben has been a resident of Los Griegos
for almost 60 years. He lives in the same house that his parents bought in 1951. I’ve often wondered about this hidden house on Griegos. Now I… Continue

I'll be doing a last minute set tomorrow on the University of New Mexico main campus, just outside the Student Union Building in the plaza area near the metal statues, tomorrow (2/25/09). It's free! Come out and rock if you have time! I'll be playing from noon until 1PM. Thanks to Dan for getting me this gig!

Monday is hiking day. Every Monday, yes even in the winter, Aaron and I go out into the wilderness to recharge our batteries, exercise our legs, wear out the dog, find some inspiration, explore new territory, you name it! It is our day for finding inspiration.
Luckily, we live in Albuquerque, New Mexico! Within one hour in every direction of Albuquerque, there are some amazing places to explore. Since we both grew… Continue

Over on twitter,@jfleck
about signs of Spring in ABQ. He notes that "wintering birds are heading north," and "Bulby things coming up in my yard."
I'm noticing Spring all around, and last night I dreamed that I saw a hummingbird. (That's wishful thinking).
Here's what I've actually seen:
- My forsythia is blooming. Started over a week ago,…

"It is the pinnacle of high-speed steam
," said guide Doyle Caton as we walked to the engine. Mike Moye and I had found the restoration site for the old steam engine #2926. And there she was. The bolt-encrusted firebox of locomotive 2926 was rusted and marked with yellow paint. She was surrounded by scaffolds and cranes. Old engine parts were sorted and stacked everywhere. But there she sat--safe at last on a secured siding with 20 or so… Continue

Man, oh man, do I have a treat for ya’ll. To celebrate Tricklock Company opening James Still’s The Velocity of Gary starring Chad Brummett and directed by Dodie Montgomery, we have a guest. I know what you’re thinking: we’ve never had a guest before. It’s thrilling new waters we are a-treadin’. But wait, how do you have a guest on a blog? It’s actually very simple, pals. Chad and I had a lil sharin’ session, wherein I asked… Continue

Every mid-sized or large city has a hidden side. I’m not thinking of the seamy side of life, not the strip bars or the drug deals in alleyways or any other illicit goings on. I’m thinking of another category of under the radar events that take place nearly every week in cities all over the country – academic conferences
Mid-sized cities like Albuquerque are viewed as good… Continue

What are the odds? On Tuesday, Feb. 24th, Saturn and Comet Lulin will converge in the constellation Leo only 2 degrees apart. At the same time, Comet Lulin will be making its closest approach to Earth--the comet at its best!-- while four of Saturn's moons transit the disk of the ringed planet in view of backyard telescopes. Oh, and the Moon will be New,… Continue

Job loss. Mortgage crisis. Failing banks. Stimulus plan. Recession. The news these days isn't exactly a source of peace of mind. For me, I've looked to local organizations for inspiration and motivation. Right in our backyard, the non-profit sector is pushing hard to make a real difference in peoples' lives.
I've volunteered with Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque
for merely a year (and recently joined the Board), but in that time I have gotten to… Continue

Heads were swiveling in Old Town today as bypassers tried to determine, 'what is that noise?' An odd variety of pigeon? Recording of new age nature music? Squinting and looking up at the sky, there circling in a chaotic formation are hundreds of what I've determined to be Sandhill Cranes taking a brief vacation in Albuquerque.
It has been reported that cranes travel in groups by the hundreds soaring in air thermals with their 6.5 feet wing… Continue

As the New Mexico legislature gets ready to debate and vote on the domestic partnership bill next week, this short but strong piece by Albuquerque icon Margaret Randall
seems especially appropriate.
Margaret Randall grew up in Albuquerque and returned here to live after more than a quarter century in Latin America (Mexico, Cuba, Nicaragua) during the sixties, seventies and first part of the… Continue

Ever since I ran that mile so many years ago on a dusty track in Minot, North Dakota to become eligible for the President's Fitness Award, I've wanted to run.
And so I have, with each incarnation of my running experiences being different. In Louisiana I'd get up at 5 am to run in the dark because the thought of running during the day seemed like torture. Extreme heat and humidity made it unpalatable. Then there were the Obsessive Years where I'd run at least 6 miles a day. My route… Continue

That's right, free magic show this Saturday afternoon at the Magic Juggler Shop at the IMP. That's Illusions Magic Theater. It's the one behind the magic shop 3205 Central Ave NE. This will be a show for children ages 4 to 8. Don't worry we won't be checking ID at the door, that's just what age group I designed the show for. It will be at 3pm.
There is a catch though. I will be taking video and lots of photos during the show to use in my promo material and on the… Continue
