With Robby in the Garden of Broken Glass

BRIDGE BLVD. & 2ND ST. SW--One mile south of here, over between the bike path and the river, is one of the most jaw-dropping sights of the urban landscape: a five acre "garden" of broken glass. And like any grown man, I thought that it would be the perfect spot to take my eight-year-old grandson...especially one who has been taken everywhere in the city from the Arboretum to the Zoo. "Jaded" is not a term I would use to describe such… Continue

Tea and Silence

There is a place we go when we hear a language we don’t understand, not just in passing, but when it fills the room and we can’t just move away. This experience brings a rare and blessed silence to our linguistic mind, which is otherwise compulsively occupied with providing a narrative to our moment-to-moment experience. The suspension of linguistic chatter sharpens our senses for visual and other clues about what is going on in the present, and opens the door to a dreamlike… Continue

The Hunt for Tingley Field (aka Tingley Park)

Shortly after I moved to Barelas, I discovered Tingley Park. With two little ones, Tingley Park was a far enough walk away from home to feel like an adventure and close enough for us to make a quick dash for home in case we needed to.

There was also the bonus of Tingley Park’s location across the street from the Rio Grande… Continue

Mayor Chavez, You've Got a Drug Problem, Pt. 2

I believe in follow up, and giving credit where credit is due. My initial blog about the drug trafficking in Barelas on Iron between 3rd and 4th avenues was met with many concerned and informative responses. I was directed to the the Barelas Neighborhood Assoc., given the contact numbers for various individuals with the influence and authority to take action, and received many comments regarding my personal safety. To all, I say thank you. Your concern is greatly appreciated. And although I'll… Continue

It was not a good week for Albuquerque DWI Attorney, John Higgins, seen at this KOBtv link threatening APD officers on video . The powers of the Cop-Dash-Cam are pretty revealing.

Top 5 Cities to Build Wealth

Just found this article and had to click to see if my beloved Albuquerque maybe, just maybe was on the list. Well, it was! Albuquerque is number FIVE on the list! I've always said that this is a great place to live, but again and again we are ending up on the top lists for being a great place to be during the recession. So, keep your heads up people, Albuquerque ROCKS!!

Roadtrip circle- Socorro, T or C, Hillsboro, Silver City, Glenwood and more

One of the great things about living in Albuquerque is that it's roughly in the center of the state- this makes road trips throughout the state relatively easy- many can even be completed in a day. Last weekend we took a trip down south.…

for the love of curves, sparkle, and twirling tassels

I think growing up I never knew what beauty really was. Looking back at childhood pictures, I realize that I didn’t really acknowledge the common notions of fashion, beauty, or mainstream iconology. In the past few months I have spent an ample amount of time looking at family photos, so this is something that has been on my mind a great deal. Those of you who know me best know that this was spawned by some extreme family drama culminating in the… Continue

Predictions: A Duke City Pillbox of Uppers and Downers for 2009

TULANE & COAL SE--There will be winners and losers in the coming year. Here's my look at what's hot and what's not next year in the Duke City. Remember, although these predictions are a bargain (being worth approximately 20 times what they cost you) do not make any life changing decisions without professional advice.

1. Politicians

The Uppers: Mayor Martin Chavez, County Commissioner Deanna Archuleta, U.S.… Continue

UPDATE! Call to Action: We know budgets need to be cut, but this is ridiculous

In one of the many enewsletters I get came this disturbing piece of news for anyone who cares about the arts community: The House Appropriations and Finance Committee will meet Wednesday, January 28 at 1:30 p.m. to vote on the budget proposals submitted by the State of New Mexico's Legislative Finance Committee and the Executive Branch. The LFC recommends reducing New Mexico Arts budget by $400,000 and the… Continue

Puppy Dog Tales

It's puppy season! Okay, I guess the shelters would tell you it's sort of always puppy season, but spring is, after all not only puppy time, but the perfect time for a new friend of the canine persuasion. You did make that obligatory New Year's resolution to lose weight and exercise more, right?

No, I am not a representative of the Humane Society or the ASPCA. I am the worst kind of…

Martini Mike's Hangover Report - Lone Wolf Edition

I am up far too early for having gone to bed at approximately 4 am. I hold the looming thought of the inevitability of going to Lowes today at bay. My camera is full, my coffee is warm, and giddy girls carry on downstairs. Last night is almost like a dream at this point. Mostly a good dream except for a place I won’t mention by name. Hey, in the words of Doris Day… “… Continue
