Leaves are about to fall. This is a poem you really need to read before they do...because, as he says, "Leaves are the words of trees / whose chosen work is remembering."
Stewart S. Warren
, writer and performance poet, was born 1950 into the affluent southern society of Tulsa, Oklahoma where, Stewart says, he was raised by slaves and all night gas station attendants.… Continue

I'm on an info gathering mission about the Bataan Memorial Death March held at White Sands Missile Range. Have you done the march? If so, I'm interested in your overall experiences, whether you were a team or solo, if you ran or walked it, how you trained, etc. At this point, I don't even like to mention that I'm considering doing the march, because I know only what I've read on the official website http://www.bataanmarch.com/default.htm

My daughter’s 3rd grade class has a garden. Friday, we were able to buy swiss chard from their harvest. Big, bright green leaves. I came home with a bag and thought, “What can I make with this?” I know how to do the basic sauteed chard thing, but wanted it to be a little more gussied up. We had come over the summer to water and weed, and I felt protective of it–I did not want that bag of swiss chard to become forlorn and fuzzy in the veggie drawer.
First I peeled the leaves from the… Continue

The 1992 campaign exemplified the shift of United States political coverage from platform information and traditional press to what it is today: a character and celebrity focused popularity contest... Many argue that voters were not receiving important information about candidates’ platforms but because of their perceived knowledge, voters were not seeking additional information. The… Continue

This Sunday, 'Burqueno's cinephiles have a unique opportunity -- to see the distinctive beauty of ABQ's downtown captured on film and
to support a local filmmaker launch his latest film. And five bucks is all it will cost when you show up at The Guild for Sunday's world premiere screening of Ewen Wright's short film, Validation
. The cost of admission is fitting, in its way, because five bucks… Continue

I met my friend Arthur when he was a bassoonist and composer. We produced concerts together in Philadelphia for several years. He eventually decided that being a musician would never be a really lucrative career for him. He and his wife town to go to nursing school in up-state New York. If he began his education earlier in life, he would probably be a brain surgeon, but today he is a really smart nurse at UNM. Now that he has begun losing his hearing, this turns out to be a good career choice… Continue

When I watch touring shows, I often look for the kinds of lights they carry. Not all shows carry their own lights, but I do like to know what the companies who carry lights are bringing on their tour.
I just watched Grease
Wednesday night and was interested to see that they had an array of… Continue

When I say "Route 66 in New Mexico," what do you think of? Do you see the glow of neon signs shimmering on Central Avenue after a monsoon? Do you imagine the curved corners of stuccoed 1950s motels, now worn and cracked under the weight of time? Do you hear the revving of an old engine as an ancient Chrysler makes its way through the lights downtown? We think of Route 66 as Central Avenue, but there is another Route 66 in New Mexico.
In the… Continue

Keeping fit and healthy has always been a passion of mine but I really enjoy getting my workout by playing rather than just exercising. When I was younger gymnastics, softball and cheerleading kept me active and in great shape. As I grew older and had kids I slowed down a little but kept playing softball and started riding my bike all around town then I found soccer.
I love playing soccer and give it total credit for keeping me healthy, happy and in shape. But as much as I love the… Continue

I get inspired each and every week to do my regular DCF post. There's a certain oomph afforded me when reading the preceding day's post by Johnny Mango. His two part series on the Belen BNSF line and Harvey House were great. Not to mention his numerous posts about adventurous episodes with his grandson...
But then it all goes to hell. I have no finishing power. I probably won't even finish this post.… Continue

"Well, where do you want to live?"
"I want to live with the Lobos. They can't beat anybody!"

- 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.*
