Synergy from Cairo to Burque--How Art Meets Community

Imagine that an American woman visiting Cairo gets into such a profound conversation about what's up with arts and community in Albuquerque that she decides to move here. Twelve years later, more than a decade after she first volunteered for ArtStreet, the woman has become the coordinator of this visionary arts program. Now, with a staff of four people plus… Continue

The Nob Hill Grower's Market--Morningside Park 3-6:30 pm

Well, I arrived too late for the almond pastries, but the market was bustling with activists who had plenty of ideas left. It was interesting to attend the chili-tasting booth set up by Isaura Andaluz, an activist concerned with protecting NM farmers from the greedy grasp of the GE (genetically engineered) food giant Monsanto. Isaura has been working ten years with the SaveNMseeds group (www.savenmseeds.org) hoping the legislature and the voters of NM… Continue

Narcissism or Art?

At some point in the history of humans, we saw ourselves looking back out of a still pool of water and we have been fascinated with our reflections ever since.



So, are the reflections I propose to post here — on the business and pleasure of entertainment — simple narcissism? I hope not.



Some people make the case that performing arts are all about showing off. For many performers, they’d be right. Others on our stages, though, deserve the name artist. They look in the… Continue

Can we ensure Strong Starts for Children?

New Mexico is a wondrous place to live. I could never think of living any place else. I love the people, the landscapes, the culture and the food. So for me it is heartbreaking that so many our very young children are at risk. The success of our families and young children is will determine our future and I am committed to helping make that happen. KNME broadcasts quality, well researched children’s programs like Sesame Street, Between the Lions,… Continue

Things I Overheard At The Water Cooler





The State Fair is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays this year, or so the Germans would have us believe. There's still horse racing, and you have to pay for parking, if you park on grounds, but I have it on good authority that everything but the midway is open. I know for a fact that there… Continue

Santaquerque? Albufe?

Is it me, or is the space between our two fair cities shrinking? I'm not talking about open space. I'm talking about mental space -- the idea that the two cities are so easily physically connected that the lines between live/work/play merge.



For me, the Railrunner has done this. Proper or inproper subsidies aside (which belongs on somebody else's post), I've had several experiences lately facilitated by a quick ride up to Santa Fe on the… Continue

Zombie Crawl 2010 in the Duke City?

Wow, I haven't written on this website in over two years. I was really worried about anyone coming to my page and not seeing my pleading to be reunited with my loving dog D.J. so I stopped coming here and started waiting for the e-mail responses. It wasn't meant to be, I suppose, but I still want to believe she is with a loving family somewhere.



In my time away from the site I have fully embraced a new obsession. I am undoubtedly a bigger, more obsessive fan of the zombie genre than… Continue

The 2nd Annual Sunday Poets Potluck

Last Saturday, MaryAnn and I hosted the second Sunday Poets Potluck. So far The Sunday Poem series has run for 89 consecutive weeks. It started February 15, 2009 with two poems by Richard Vargas and continues until the present day. 56 different local poets have been featured here, many more than once. I repeat: 56 local poets! And we are not done yet.



A Scary Bunch

It takes a lot of courage to call yourself a poet. Next time… Continue

Iris folding cards

I have had this blog for a couple of years. I opened it up when my Uncle passed away two years ago. I forgot about it, but now I am back...and ready to post.



My name is Melanie and I make hand made cards...the ones below that I made are Iris Folding. I learned how to make them about five years ago. It was something I didn't think I would like at first because it is so time consuming , but it grew on me. The roses below are two of the cards that I have recently made. The rose is made… Continue

Space (Parking and Otherwise)

Last week I wrote about time. Today heralds my start to the academic year, aka work, after a summer off. Though it is beyond me how the summer is “off” when you are still crafting articles for publication in peer-reviewed… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Liza Wolff-Francis... American Noise

Somehow the noise of America seems timeless. "Can you spare some change?" resonates through much of the 20th century. And here we are in the 21st. Self-help slogans are everywhere. We listen for the soul of our country somewhere in this mix of verbal traffic.



Liza Wolff-Francis is a poet, writer and clinical social worker. She is an MFA student at Goddard College and has been published in Earthships Anthology, Albuquerque Almanac… Continue

A Life in the Theatre

I just attended "A Life in the Theatre" a two-man play by David Mamet (1977) at the Adobe Theatre on North Forth Street. The play runs until September 5.



If you have never been in that space it is cozy and intimate, and impossible to not feel a part of the play. If not this play, then I recommend you check out the theatre.



This play is set in a local theatre. The little troupe consists of experienced and new actors. Throughout the play the veteran actor, Robert, played by… Continue

In Search of Arts & Lit with an Impact like Diego Rivera

John Crawford believes in arts and literature and the impact they can have on people. John is the publisher of West End Press and the producer of the Albuquerque Cultural Conference. To him, accessibility matters. So does making "high art." He says, "I believe in art, even high art, but I also feel it should be rooted in the… Continue
