I saw my first one streak west over South Broadway's city night sky and knew it would be a good night for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. At my favorite spot south of Albuquerque, the shower of silent 'stars' was a refreshing moment which carried me past the midway point of summertime.
Though 'light pollution' encroaches from Belen/Los Lunas into our own Big City light, the Milky way was cooly lit and many of the night's meteor streaks seemed to spring from it or dart through it. I… Continue

Because of the Harlem Renaissance, the post-World War I Great Migration of African Americans from the South to northern cities is generally well-known. Blacks also resettled the West Coast to work in defense industries during World War II, the subject of Chester Himes’ harrowing novel, If He Hollers, Let Him Go. In early histories of New Mexico, the focus has been upon the “Heroic Triad” of Anglos, Latinos and Native Americans who comprise this… Continue

What should children in Albuquerque know about their environment? What experiences should they have outdoors? What outdoor skills do they need? A few weeks ago I attended a listening session

Richard is one of Albuquerque's strongest voices. He continues to walk down your

Vargas is the editor of the poetry journal Mas Tequila Review
. It just published its first issue (available for a reasonable six bucks). Purchase and publication info is… Continue

How's everbody doing?
This isn't a blog as much as it is a question: Is there anywhere in Albuquerque that offers an introduction to Islam and the Quran?
UNM Continuing Ed and the Islamic Center don't list anything like that. Nothing here on DCF.
I just want to know more about this faith given all the bad press from both media and Christian fundamentalists. Not looking for a conversion experience, just knowledge.

The more consciousness is influenced by prejudices, errors, fantasies, and infantile wishes, the more the already existing gap will widen into a neurotic dissociation and lead to a more or less artificial life, far removed from healthy instincts, nature, and truth.

While looking for another place to review Thai Vegan, my new favorite restaurant (and where I took my friend and client, Kerry, for lunch today), I ran across this website:
I thought some of my veggie friends (and some of YOURS!) might like to know about it - apparently it is nationwide.

This week at Outpost it's Resonance featuring vocalist, Patti Littlefield
and low brass maestro, Mark Weaver
in an unusual and experimental exploration of spatial sound: no chordal instruments, just tuba and voice, re-fashioning material ranging from standards to jazz and pop tunes to original compositions.
And for the second set of the evening, it's Equilibrio, a quartet whose concept “is based on balanced improvisation through the vehicle of original compositions… Continue
