HOT Days like today's with a considerable dry heat
take me back to our first years in New Mexico where we were such novice 'renters', we did not realize a swamp cooler was supposed to have water in it...Thanks Mr. Landlord. 23 years ago this weekend on a cool and beautiful day (followed by thunderstorms the next day) my wife, Debra Landau, and I were married atop our roof on Princeton S.E. in an eclectic ceremony performed by the head tribal Medicine Woman of Isleta Pueblo (pre-Casino… Continue

Caution! This spring five of New York's biggest bump 'n' grind stars have highway fever! The super-star team of Anita Cookie, Clams Casino, Darlinda Just Darlinda, GiGi LaFemme and Minnie Tonka are hitting the road for DANGEROUS CURVES AHEAD: BURLESQUE ON THE GO-GO! With a squeal of tires and a cloud of glitter, they're leaving behind the Big Apple with the top down and their tassels twirling! And they're taking Albuquerque by storm for just one night along with many of New Mexico’s top… Continue

It's also very difficult to blame others when we're using I-Statements. They force us to take responsibility for what we're thinking and feeling, which protects others from our blame, guilt and judgment.

Today is the second anniversary of my arrival in my new home town, Albuquerque!
And I've never looked back (except to curse the heat in Phoenix).
I'm so very grateful for all the wonderful things that have happened here - great new friends, awesome live music, cultivating my massage practice, all the learning and culture that has flowed to me.
The southwest is where I plan to lay my bones down.
Very grateful I took the chance to come here.

Buca Di Beppo

J. Lynn Johnson's retrospective show at Revlis promises to be magnetic: I know because personally I haven't been able to forget Lynn's style since I first saw her work on a postcard stuck on Kris Mills

to talk about her work at Milton's, one of my favorite… Continue

Just found out that Fremont's is now open from 10:00 to 14:00. They struggled for a while and the shift to 4-hour work days is a bad omen. Besides, who can go grocery shopping in the morning? I expect an imminent collapse. Considering that they were the only source of British pies in the whole town, it will be bad.

I've grown to enjoy Micheal Kelting's weather segments on KOB. He was there last week. Now he is gone. There is no longer evidence of his existence on the KOB website. Affiliates like to do that....one day they are on air. Then they are gone.
Anyone know anything?

Today I am reading through the transcripts from tapes my grandfather sent to my mother over 30 years ago. My mom had asked him to tell his story and he became obsessed with the telling. He sent her no less than 5 tapes per week for over 10 weeks. My mom, ever the stenographer, typed everything out as best she could considering his nasally, twangy, Kentucky drawl and the constant manner in which he dropped consonants.
He begins the telling just before boot camp and the how’s and why’s… Continue

A few weeks ago, my mother found a stray dog wandering around her front yard. It was a scruffy little dog. With the help of my brother-in-law, my mother coaxed the dog in her back yard so that she could give it some water and food and check her tags. It was apparent the dog was blind and obviously scared.
My mom gave her water and she gulped it down like she hadn’t had a drink in a while. My brother-in-law checked her tag on her… Continue

Captain, USMC; WWII era:South Pacific
THE PERFECT FATHER
Making peace that's the hardest part
the most difficult phase
the last part of the struggle
When I can admit to my deep down woundedness
I am touched I am opened
I am ready then
for that rescue copter to come
to touch down
to lift me from the field
to take me to that healing… Continue

Having been an Easyrider
fan it was quite the treat when we started seeing Dennis Hopper around town. I even did a blog post last fall on what I observed him have for breakfast at the Flying Star. He and his lovely wife and a small entourage sat next to Karla and I on the back patio of the Rio Grande Star. He's really a beautiful man.
I was able to snap this photo of Hopper last July at the Albuquerque Film Festival awards ceremony.… Continue

I'm grateful, every day, to be living in New Mexico! It's almost been 2 years now (June 4th is the anniversary), and I've never regretted moving "out west".
I'm delighted with my growing, thriving massage therapy practice, the clients and friends I've met, and with working on my Masters' degree here.
And I'm excited about all the great live music happening in town - Crosby Stills & Nash tomorrow night, Robert Plant in a few weeks, Sonny Landreth playing at the… Continue
