There are restaurants of all ilk, possessing personalities all their own- like the ones where the chefs come out in their whites
to yuk it up with the clientele. And of course, there's the kind that have rude waitstaff as part of their schtick. I like those. I have patronized dining establishments that were true "neighborhood… Continue

Mary Oliver has a beautiful poem describing how our attention changes our perception of the ‘perfect’ Lily…how ‘perfection’ is an illusion, as well as is an imperfection (see bellow). When things get a little ‘unexpected’, look at the ‘light’…see the way …. and the veil of perfection and imperfection will fall away. Yun has experienced it over the weekend.
Yun gets a hair cut once in while… Continue

It is the first Monday of the New Year, and I am thinking of rice pudding and philosopher W.D. Ross
. The rice pudding is easy – a jaunt to La Montañita for raisins and local eggs to mix with last night’s leftover rice for a quick and easy dessert for the progeny tonight. W.D. Ross is more complicated, as befits a philosopher.
All college… Continue

Good morning, peeps. I suppose for most of you out there it is back to the grind today. Grab a cup of coffee, like me (today drinking some Joe from Trader Joe's, damn good brew for a very reasonable $3.49 a can). Let's get to the uber depressing haps...

Have you seen the bracelets that people wear on their wrists? They are made out of rubber and often support a certain cause?
Well tonight Yun and I had a very interesting conversation that I am calling SNAP! Like “SNAP OUT OF IT! ” We both had an emotional day today…some was of our own design and some was us dealing with other people’s dramas. All of it created stress in our lives. It put us… Continue

Dick Cheney continues to insert himself into the current political debate. Poet Gary L. Brower has the former VP in his metaphoric sights as he focuses on a very real hunting trip. The Incident occurred on February 11, 2006, when then U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney shot Harry Whittington, a 78-year-old Texas attorney, while participating in a quail hunt. Both Cheney and Whittington called the incident an accident.
Gary Brower is one of the… Continue

It is Christmas Eve, every one has something to do. Cece wants to go to her Church, the traditional way of celebration. For her, going to church is time to reflect and to be quiet, to remember.
On the other hand, Yun has decided to do something that she has never done Yule time firebefore…have a bake party with her young sons. She never is a ‘bake mom” which is why she makes friends like… Continue

Yun has two boys. They have taught her lessens in life like no others by cracking her up laughing all the time.
When the kids were younger, one Saturday afternoon, after a week’s work, learning , laundry and cooking, Yun felt unsupported wishing things could be a little easier for her as a single mother. Yun retired herself on the couch. That day, there was a play date for the boys. As she drifted in and out between the two worlds, she heard one of her sons say: “Sssh, my mommy is… Continue

As I write this is it about 3:15 in the morning and I have not gone to bed yet, but I did celebrate the new year in the company of friends, indulging in champagne at midnight and some fan-friggin-tastic ritualistic shots of brandy with sugar and coffee coated limes (it was pretty fun) and giving the kids sparkling cider and letting them crash wherever they fell. Scanning the news channels is pretty uneventful this morning.
However, KRQE did have… Continue

Before I get to the haps, I would be remiss not to mention that this is the last day of the year, and the last day of the decade, as well. I began this decade as the mother of a toddler, pregnant with my second child, and am wrapping it up with four great kids. I began this decade living in St. Louis, and am ending it back home in Albuquerque. When I started this decade I was hoping to go to law school, and I still am (admittedly much closer to my… Continue

When tea meets conversations, everything can happen... The two whos
start a blog on Women's life, work and wellness!
Cece and Yun knew for a long time that they would work together in some kind of capacity simply because they are so different yet so similar. They talked about the “Who” the “what” and “how”….they tried other ventures with other people but it was unsatisfying. One day Yun said to Cece, “Cece! We have the Who! We… Continue

What do you get when you buy a new washing machine? A dead dryer, that's what. Yes, I went to switch loads earlier and thought, "huh, I thought I started the dryer." Turned it on again and came back later to cold, wet clothes. Bummer. Anyone out there know anyone good at fixing things that are large and run on electrical power? I need help!
Wow. I want a job with the… Continue

The Aquarium opened the year we moved back to Albuquerque. It was such a treat to take my 18 month old daughter to the café and get to sit down for 15 minutes while she ate and watched the fish. When they first opened the café had mac and cheese, beans and rice and some other pre-school favorites.
When our twins were born a few years later I would take all 3 kids and we would circle the jellyfish tank. The babies would fall asleep and I would sit and watch the shark tank while they… Continue
