I've got that Revolutionary feeling

Who wouldn't love January in Albuquerque when you've got the Tricklock Revolutions International Theatre Festival?

The Revolution started off with two premiers -- "Pollock," a solo show starring Joe Peracchio, and "Nasze… Continue

It's For The Children...

I'm like a lot of you reading this. I perennially want our city to have new facilities, mainly for better quality of life. I vote for 95% of general obligation bonds and mill levies. I always vote for funding for schools, libraries, senior centers, arroyo storm flood control, police, fire, bike paths, land for balloon landings, what have you.

I even did this before I set foot in a library here, called the… Continue

The DCF Heads North: Notes from the Roundhouse

THE ROUNDHOUSE, SANTA FE--There was something dismal about the bus ride downtown. It was still wet from the overnight rain. The streetlights were already turned off in the early morning mist. Dawn came late, but life was still running on time. And that meant catching the 7:30 Railrunner if I wanted to be in Santa Fe before noon.

The Alvarado Station was crowded, but nobody there was riding the train. It was filled with people with nowhere else to… Continue

In the News: ABQ Group Sending Solar Powered Bibles to Haiti

Reuters is running this in newspapers around the world, and I was intrigued that the group is based here in the Q:

"As international aid agencies rush food, water and medicine to Haiti's earthquake victims, a US faith-based group is sending Bibles to Haitians in their hour of need.

Not just any…

North Valley Days: The Baked Cow Skull

My friend Sal Reyes sold me that cow. It was a small black Angus and it looked to be no problem as we unloaded it from his pickup and into my garden. My garden, you see, was fenced. It was my first venture into owning any kind of cattle. As I gazed at all that beef in the late afternoon sun I was mighty excited.

By the next morning, however, that beef was gone. A part of the fencing was torn down, the gate was askew, and the cow was gone.… Continue

Doctors Without Borders Involved in Relief Effort in Haiti

Cece Spoke to Yun this morning about the group Doctors Without Borders. She told Yun about the group and Yun was already familiar with it. They both agreed to feature a donation button on this blog so that if you want to , you can donate to their relief efforts in Haiti.

From Doctors Without Borders web site, we have included this information:

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "The Massage Therapist and John Nash"

From Two Whos:

What’s the difference between being massaged and watching the movie The Beautiful Mind? For Yun, it is the same experience… in her mind that is.

She visited her most wonderful massage therapist Stephanie. Stephanie has this amazing ability to tell which muscle or tendon are not behaving, or are out of the alignment. She will say with her eyes closed (Yun is guessing): “Here you are. This is it!” Wham, she… Continue

Albuquerque, 5 things drawing us back

The Two Whos on "Cookies Can Cure Cancer?"

Many of you know that Yun and I ride our bicycles and raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. We raise money that goes to fund cancer research. We do this by riding 100 mile bike rides. Currently, we have a friend Catherine who is doing this for the first time. She is getting ready to start her training and preparation for this journey. Her sister has cancer. You can view her web site here and make a… Continue

Dancing Around the World Without Leaving Town

Back in the spring of 2003, my first friend in Albuquerque introduced me to an activity I'd never heard of: international folk dancing. I tried it out and have been hooked ever since. The variety is astonishing. There are actually a handful of social dance groups in town that do international folk dances, and between them you can learn dances from nearly every country and ethnic group on Earth, from Azerbaijan and Bedouin to Pakistani and West African to various styles of Gypsy. Many of these… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Georgia Santa-Maria... Love Poem for my Stove

A wood-burning cook stove is the total opposite of that funky electric Hotpoint you had in your first apartment. There are tricks to using one but once you know how, it becomes a partner in turning a cold room into a sweet-smelling, warm kitchen. No wonder they are passed down from generation to generation.

Georgia Santa-Maria is an Albuquerque native, born in the old purple brick St. Jo’s on Martin Luther King. Jewell Thompson, her 5th grade… Continue

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "I am glad you are not planning to die"

From Two Whos:

Cece has a story about her sister Kristen:

“I am Glad You’re not Planning to Die! Thank you!” This was the 2 sentence sarcastic email I received from my sister after she received all 13 pages of my advanced directives, my living will and the “how tos” of fish and cat care. …also my plans for the funeral in case the worst happened in surgery.

You see, my sissy prefers to look on the bright happy… Continue

Thought I'd add my latest works:

"Charlie" 14x16" oil

The above portrait didn't photograph well because it's so wet. The greens seem to reflect light a lot...and not in a good way, in this case.

"Aubrey" 14x16" oil

I got to spend some time working for Paula Manning-Lewis at the Chroma Gallery today. It was a fine day! Blue skies, warm sunshine and the birds were singing. Who could ask for more in… Continue

Red Cross Won't Help Haiti

The world is donating money in small quantities to organizations like American Red Cross, but it MUST be realized that donations for a disaster like this present one in Haiti go into the books for fiscal year 2010, and that of the yearly budget, a large amount that I estimate at 50% of their operating budget goes into ADVERTISING. Maybe I’m wrong, but the way that I see it, for every dollar that you donate to ARC, 50 cents goes to yearly advertising, and a small slice goes to relief efforts… Continue

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Life's blind spot?"

From Two Whos: Just like her contact lens mysteriously disappeared from her hand (for the original event, see previous post), it reappeared magically several days later right in front of Yun’s eyes. It was almost like a magic trick! Now you see it, now you don’t!

It was New Years Day, 2010. Yun was doing the house cleaning. Bending slightly over her sink trying to wipe off the stain behind the faucet, and VOILA! There was her lost… Continue

Haiti is about to REALLY suck

Two days ago, on January 12th, 2010, grain prices took a tumble. There is at this very moment a surplus on Wheat, soybean, and corn. Corn tumbled 30 cents to $3.925/Bushel (Roughly $160 a ton). Soybeans plummeted 32 cents a bushel to end the day at about $400 a ton. Wheat dropped 6.4% to land at about $215 a ton. Just about everyone in the world eats these grains every day, and would you know that the ancestors of all wheat now eaten were first grown near a fascinating little place called… Continue
