Was friggin awesome! We had great fashions by Lauren Fischer under the name Tabulous and believe me, she is amazing! Her designs are made with soda and beer tabs and made into the most gorgeous chain mail style fashions that you would not believe that could be made by human hands! Elegant, sexy, and recyclable!
Great music from all our local songbirds! Great turnout from all our lovely supporters of bands, fashion, art and BMG!
The models were gorgeous as always and the hair and make… Continue

All I'm sayin' here, folks, is that it's always dangerous to honor people by naming things after them while they're still living.
At least after they die, they can't embarass you any more.
Or cost you money.
We had a great event with Fraser Goff last week, with over 70 people in the store. He had some great things to share about the geologic history of Valles Caldera - see a snippet here:
And, Allegra Huston, Anjelica Huston's sister and daughter of director John Huston, was here this past Sunday talking about her new book, Love Child. She shared a few thoughts with us after her… Continue

I went down to The Beach yesterday afternoon, just to enjoy the peace the water brings me. It was fairly quiet at that time of day, only a few fishermen casting their lines - and they're a quiet lot. I sat and watched the ducks. Only saw white ducks yesterday, and one lone geese that kept circling overhead.
As I sat sketching a curvy cottonwood tree, I realized once again that Life is Art. How gorgeous the duck fluffing its feathers and ducking beneath the water, or its brother, resting in… Continue

Maisons Interieures has been exhibiting in The Harwood's Front Gallery (within staring distance of my desk) since the start of April, and it inspired me to do my first interview. Good thing Myriam's so patient, as I didn't have a recording device other than my fingertips and I'd definitely forgotten to pre-write any questions. Hopefully the following words will either stimulate your curiosity or answer some of your own similar questions about…Continue
The plan was to ride my motorcycle up to Taos to watch my daughter Olivia perform with her slam poetry team in the state high school competition there on Sunday. She said her performance wouldn't be until 5pm, so I had all day to meander on the way, through some of the most beautiful country in New Mexico.
Things were getting iffy when, a few days before, a big Spring storm moved in dumping heavy snow on the northern half of the… Continue

I was hoping that with President Obama at the wheel, possibly this year's 4:20 gathering would be what it used to be: a happy place to go for a brief celebration of Spring in Roosevelt Park...But not so. There were fewer APD cruisers this year but the main entrance to the park was taped off. A few wanderers were entering the park with trepidation from the other side. Gorgeous day. These days, it's Ok to Tea Party but still not ok to salute… Continue
I purchased a Magnavox HD converter box from Wal-Mart and I'm wondering, is there a camera in the box? My friend has an RCA HD converter box and it is much smaller in size. I’m not going to take the box apart because I don’t want to possibly damage the box and not have the ability to watch TV. What do you think, is there a camera in the box?…

Does life imitate art, or does art imitate life?
This is like a Zen koan for me.
I find myself missing the waters of my youth.
Walking across the creek on the slippery, moss-covered rocks.
Sitting by one of the lakes, in the woods behind our house, watching the fish jump.
Walking in the woods, discovering plant species, and learning of their uses from my grandmother.
Sitting on a big stone, overlooking the creek, my feet dangling in the ice cold water.
