The recent string of tragic events in our community serve as a sobering reminder of the public safety problems that our city has been plagued with for many years. Its unfortunate that in a city the size of Albuquerque, the current mayor deems it necessary to be accompanied by an armed, three man security detail during his daily and after hours activities.

I am in my third week of the Albuquerque Police Departments' CPA program, the 35th CPA class offered. It is a 12 week course (classes meet twice a week with optional weekend field trips) of fairly amazing adventures offered for free to Albuquerque residents by the Albuquerque Police Department. I am wondering if any of you DCF readers have been a participant?

The news is gradually migrating around town that long-time OFFCenter artist Stephanie Anderson was the cook who was murdered in the Denny's robbery a couple of Saturdays ago. She was a mandala artist and bright-spirited, open hearted friend to many here in the Duke City.
My deepest condolences go out to her family and friends, and she will be missed terribly by all who knew her as a kind, loving citizen with a big smile for anyone… Continue

Softball was cancelled tonight so I took the intellectual road over to the public library
to renew my library card to be able to download audio books online and while I was there I picked up a few books on tape and CD.
Unfortunately my boom box decided to call it quits and I won't be able to listen to 'A Lesson Before… Continue

This is the second year of CROSSING: a graduate student exhibition that seeks the top talent from graduate programs around the country. This year's inspiring 1st Place artist (which means she receives a purchase award of $500 and she's invited to have a solo show at Richard Levy Gallery), is Chika Matsuda from the University of Arizona. Due to our respective geographies we were not able to chat in person, but I did catch up with Chika via… Continue

The past weekend found me in my old stomping grounds, mixing business with pleasure. On Friday night, 9/26, I gave a reading with 4 other talented poets in West Hollywood, in the patio behind Stories Bookstore, located on Sunset Blvd. It was a beautiful night, and hosts Bryan Sanders and Robert Juarez put together a great lineup. And I had a chance to chat with… Continue

(FYI- Part One "Got my mojo workin'" of this post can be found at the Sol site
I realized that I've been blogging primarily my success stories. Don't fear - I've had my fair share of failures, too. They're just brief, and don't warrant much conversation. But here SOME of them are, in all their glory.

I am really getting pumped about moving to Albuquerque. The landlord that we found is kind and considerate, and willing to work with us in the time-frame that we require - not to mention the fact that we aren't even paying a pet deposit. Between the three of us humans we have quite the menagerie following us around.
Other than the views from the house, which are incredible, I think the thing I'm most excited about is the pool table in the game room. I've gotten really rusty over the… Continue

Oh my...what a typo in this morning's Sunday Journal article, "Well-Worn Success" by David Steinberg in the BOOKS section.
Funny, I always thought it was Bird Song Books although Bird Dong does have a ring to it...Ouch.

What do you do with a major gift from an ex-boyfriend? Christina Socorro Yovovich did three things. 1. Hang his watercolor on her bedroom wall. 2. Listen as her new boyfriend (now husband) interpreted it. 3. Write an ode.
Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Christina has lived in Albuquerque for the past ten years. This spring she graduated from UNM with an MFA in poetry and nonfiction with distinction. Her poetry has appeared in River… Continue

James D. Houston is dead and it came as more of a shock than to hear of the deaths of Jackson, Fawcett, and McMahon combined…. And you’re looking at me like you don’t know who James D. Houston is.
I was flipping through the most recent issue of Poets & Writers and their “Memorium” column caught my eye. It seemed longer… Continue
