Art by the People

The folk art/recycle art community in this town is full of raw talent, quirkiness, and in some cases, pure genius.  What better way to celebrate all of this than sharing art, music and food? Today was the 11th Annual Corkfest festival in the South Valley.

Scent of the South Valley

I think many people connect to the geography of wherever they grew up, whether that is close to the mountains, out on the mesa, near the river, and so on. My connection is with the valley, the river, and the bosque but more specifically, the alfalfa fields in the South Valley. It started when I was in…

What I did today while I was supposed to be blogging

So as a sort of excuse? Apology? Here are the Albuquerque-related things I did today when I should have been blogging. This could suck, but at 10pm-ish it's what I've got.

  1. Breakfast at Limonata, discussion with the owner. Brian and I have…

Early voting started today!

It's been a fairly (comparatively?) low-key election season in Albuquerque, and why not keep that vibe going by voting early? Most campaigns will stop calling once you've voted, and you get the satisfaction of being able to say, "Oh yeah, I did that ages ago" to friends, family, and strangers…
