NOB HILL--The little boy stood in front of the judge who was hearing the custody case. "Would you like to live with your father?"
the judge asked.
the child said, "he beats me."
"Would you rather live with your mother?"
"No, she beats me too!"
"Well, where do you want to live?"
"I want to live with the Lobos. They can't beat anybody!"
Old dogs and old jokes comfort us in the bad… Continue

- The Albuquerque team of Barbara Fricke and Peter Cuneo wins America's Challenge Gas Balloon Race and lands safely in Ontario, Canada. Incidentally, Ontario is about 1,350 miles from Albuquerque. And they flew it straight through in a
hot air gas balloon in 57 hours and 30 minutes. In a hot air gas balloon. Wow.*

Campaigners are the entrepreneurs and innovators of our political system. They identify needs, problems and opportunities, propose solutions, build support and, if successful, bring about positive change.

People comment to me frequently that it must be fun to work at Popejoy because I get to watch all those shows. My response is that it’s rather like going to an office party: it’s nice to have the party, but why does it have to be at the office?
It also becomes easy to get jaded in this business. If you watch shows as a constant in your life, they can lose some of their appeal. I like to think that I’m not getting jaded, that I am just more discerning, but let’s just say that not… Continue

She's beautiful really. Her body is about the size of pinto bean, and her leg spread is easily bigger than a quarter. We've been watching her build her amazing web near the light just outside our back door. I think we have a new pet...
and here's shot with her web:… Continue

I like to think I'm pretty up to date about places to put on shows in Albuquerque, but I'm not really. I have a few main places that I work with for shows regularly, so I'm not always up to date on the various people who do shows at their houses (like The Tree House, Gold Manor, Last Fifteen Mansion, Heaven and Hell, etc.) There are plenty of Albuquerque venues, really: Andre's Underground, Outpost Performance, Orchid Chamber, Launchpad, Compound, Studio Broadway, and Thread:Space just to name… Continue

Had the pleasure of winning a couple tickets to go see ¡Globalquerque! on Friday night, September 17th and I realized that I've been remiss in not writing a review here on it! So here goes...
If you haven't been to it ever before, it takes place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center on 4th and Avenida César Chávez. I definitely recommend showing up a bit early as parking is limited on site. The shows start at about 6pm and end after 11. If you haven't been to the Hispanic Cultural… Continue

I'm back from a month in China (Harbin, Beijing) where I studied bodywork, massage, acupuncture and Chinese herbs in a 21-story Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital.
I also got to visit The Great Wall, The Forbidden City, two Buddhist temples (including Lama Temple in Beijing) and a variety of other sites.
I'd love to share my trip with you - and I have a "friends only" journal of the month over on LiveJournal - it's KarlainChina there. You have to have an LJ account and… Continue

Through the Side Door
* * * *
I've landed in homes
where everyone enters
through the Side Door
except those strangers
who have never visited before
A knock at the formal
front door means
that I'm on alert
and a little uncomfortable
probably it's a sales person
someone who is lost
Or maybe someone,
who wants to
barge in and
"share their faith"

I have a confession to make. When I travel abroad and people ask me where I am from, I don’t tell them Albuquerque. I don’t even tell them New Mexico. I tell them…wait for it ... Santa Fe. (Go ahead and start throwing rotten tomatoes
– I deserve it).
Why on earth… Continue
