In Celebration of Albuquerque

I was born and raised in Albuquerque. The Sandia Mountains have enveloped and embraced me most of my life. I've wandered off, for decades at a time, yet this is always home. Recently tattoo genius Richie Castillo was in town, and I had an opportunity to get some work by him. Richie is the rare tattoo artist that doesn't need other art work to go by. He and I chatted about my experience growing up here, and he began to draw on my arm. The finished work… Continue

Commonsensical

I’ve been thinking a lot about common sense lately. Let me rephrase that – I’ve been thinking about uncommon sense. You know, the kind of practiced response that lines up with social norms in a civil society?



And I’m trying not to be a cranky curmudgeon mom as I think through this.

Sojourn

Have I said lately just how much I love Albuquerque, and New Mexico in general?



If I haven't, I feel the need to state it anew. I love the climate, the landscape, the cuisine, and the great people we've met in person and on-line (via Duke City Fix). I feel great about the opportunity I've taken to revisit the state of my youth (geographically speaking; I've never left the figurative state) and I'm doubly glad that my wife, who had her doubts prior to our relocation, has loved it all… Continue

"Tara, tell me, is paint what comes from a tube?"

Deborah Gavel asks, “What is paint? Does it come from a tube or could it be a piece of broken pottery?” Her art is where paint meets part of a salt-shaker with burned incense. Where paint becomes cut paper. And paint is wax. Half a teacup, a coin, a piece of a $5 bill, a Persian miniature. Deborah has always been “a painter who leans towards sculpture.” Her work is an amalgam of different elements, and the coherence into one honored impulse requires… Continue

Cowboy Junkies Concert Review

Thanks to the Duke City Fix and AMP Concerts, my wife and I were able to attend the Cowboy Junkies show at the Hispanic Cultural Center last night. We arrived at the advertised start time, 7:30, and found our chairs. At first glance our seats, which were extra chairs set up in aisle between upper and lower seating, seemed to leave a little to be desired. However, almost immediately I realized these were going to be great seats...… Continue

Next Frontier: Albuquerque

Duke City locals know that use of the words “Frontier” and “Albuquerque” in a sentence means one thing. For the policy wonks at the Brookings Institution, these words couple together in a way that has nothing to do with cinnamon rolls, John Wayne, or the rug room.
