Oh Sweet 505

All right. In 3 days we hit the Albuquerque city limits for a show with AMP Concerts at The Source. I'll be opening for one of my favorite songwriters on the planet, Susan Gibson. It's going to be fun. You should come.



MORE IMPORTANTLY...I am trying to plan out my chile fixes...maybe perhaps if I could just get it injected in two alternating streams of red/green/red/green...that might serve me best. But I… Continue

Arts Activism for Women's Health

I wanted to write briefly about my work for the Governor’s Women’s Health Office. I’m a firm believer in arts, music, and literature as activism that can be put to the service of many different issues and causes---and back in February during an interview, I was lucky that the Women’s Health Office was interested in seeing how the arts could help do some outreach about health issues this year. Consequently, as a… Continue

Bo

There's a shrine in my clothes cabinet. Every time I slide open the door I am reminded of a dear friend. She was 15 when she died of liver failure. Her name was Bo.



I remember how she loved to play outside, sitting under a bush waiting for a bird. The countless number of gifts she laid at our feet was remarkably diverse: a variety of lizards, mice, birds, bunnies, pocket gophers, even a roadrunner. She was a master hunter. We had a friend… Continue

Call to Artists: Summer Artist Market



Starting June 6th, Chroma Studios Gallery will host a Saturday Arts & Crafts Market. Every Saturday 11am-5pm we will open our space to artists, rent table/wall space and have our own arts and crafts market. We are hoping to have the market run through October, ending during the two weekends of Balloon Fiesta. In cases of bad weather, all booths will be moved inside.



There will be 27 spaces total, 9 outdoors(on our patio w/ shade),… Continue

Abq love (and mourning), plus a Tuesday night book reading

Sheesh, it's so good to be home...Green chile, good friends, familiar faces and the city I love more than any other. Oh, Albuquerque, I won't drone on and on about how I always have to leave you, but know that I miss you more than you could ever imagine.



It's Day Nine of my visit to New Mexico and because I'm one lucky fool (I'm cramming a bunch of reporting trips into this visit), my "work" here has included climbing Mt. Taylor, visiting with the Zuni, backpacking in the Gila,… Continue

Pot!

Pot Kills!



Especially if you're standing under five hundred pounds of it when it falls out of the cargo bay of a passing airplane.



A friend to some, an enemy to others. A source of revenue for black market merchants, narcotics officers, and various artists. An anti-depressant. A recreation. An addiction. An inspiration. A political cause. A spiritual guide. It is many things to many different people, and no one seems to agree on how it should be treated.



The… Continue

Words

A word is a word. It is not what it describes. It is a sign along the road, pointing the reader in the direction of the entity it represents. The word “love” is as much love as a sign saying “Jersey City, 25 miles” is Jersey City. Yet we would be lost without words. Words allow us to find our way, and to help others find their way.



Think of the word “car”. Every individual that reads this will envision a different car. A red Ferrari. A Mustang convertible. An SUV. A Model T Ford. A… Continue

A May Saturday In NM



What a wonderful day today was, I actually got my ass up early and made it to the Los Ranchos growers market to enjoy some live music, tasty food samples and lots of plants, creative work and some fresh veggies from some of the local folks. I bought more plants; sunflower, day lily and violet and I also bought a small welded flower/birdbath kind of thing and… Continue

Raging Against The Machine

If I'm not very careful, I could get used to this.



I've been irradiated by unfettered rays of sunlight for forty straight days now. What a joy it is to dress every day as if I'm a tourist heading to a luau. I've worn the two tattered straw hats I have in my collection almost exclusively; the rest won't see the light of day until winter. The climate rocks. My hair dries while I'm rinsing it in the shower. Even the annointing process, wherein I must slather what feels like melted… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Rich Boucher... I Will Care About You When I'm Good And Ready

Those weekly demonstrations in Nob Hill elicit all kinds of reactions: some people honk and most just keep on driving. A few join in...a few join the counter-demonstration. Very few join both.



A past member of five national poetry slam teams, Rich has published four chapbooks of poetry. Like sands in the hourglass, Rich's poetry blends neo-brutalist surrealism with pagan music, sacred nonsense, revisionist history and "truth". Ever had a… Continue

Beautiful Building -- Good Bye.



The smell of the fried potatoes from Whataburger made me hungry. I had parked my car and stuffed my shorts' pockets with phone and camera and keys and was hiking it over the tracks on Menaul to document one of my earliest memories of Albuquerque being torn down.





I had driven my daughter and her friend by the Stronghurst Complex on their way to school because we had seen that the… Continue

Datcher Show & Openers

I just wanted to give a quick shout out to the openers for Michael Datcher. If you come out Saturday night May 9th to the Outpost at 7:30 pm, you'll hear some of my personal favorites. Maisha Baton is a phenomenal poet and was perhaps the most significant professor in my too long academic career--in a women's studies class she peeled back the brainwashing of my childhood. I also had the chance to blurb her book, Flight Time, which thrilled me. Stephanie and Virginia (remember Out ch'Yonda) are… Continue

May First Friday, our NEW space, Chroma on Roma!



May 1st was our first opening at our new space on Roma. After three weeks of 12-14 hour days and lots of work, our First Friday opening was a huge hit. We just adore our new space on the corner of 1st and Roma! Chroma on Roma, according to everyone I talked with at the opening, is now THE "IT" place here in Albuquerque. Naturally, I think so, but I'm a little biased. So, it was great to hear it from the many new visitors and our regulars alike.… Continue
