Recovery Cat 8.14.2010

When A.A. was quite young, a number of eminent psychologists and doctors made an exhaustive study of a good-sized group of so-called problem drinkers. The doctors weren't trying to find out how different we were from one another; they sought to find whatever personality traits, if any, this group of alcoholics had in common. They finally came up with a conclusion that shocked the A.A. members of that time. These distinguished men had the nerve to… Continue

Does Poetry Matter in Burque? And How?

I love poetry. I love books. I love readings. I love the community of writers and I love the audiences who come out. Love, love, love: I gush and intend to... because I hold rather esoteric views about poetry. I believe that reading or writing or listening to line-broken verse can control pain (emotional or physical), heighten your sensory perceptions of the world, cultivate a respect for self and others, prevent crime and violations against… Continue

Perseids: Harbingers of a New Season

I saw my first one streak west over South Broadway's city night sky and knew it would be a good night for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. At my favorite spot south of Albuquerque, the shower of silent 'stars' was a refreshing moment which carried me past the midway point of summertime.



Though 'light pollution' encroaches from Belen/Los Lunas into our own Big City light, the Milky way was cooly lit and many of the night's meteor streaks seemed to spring from it or dart through it. I… Continue

“Visible, Vital and Valuable”: African Americans in New Mexico

Because of the Harlem Renaissance, the post-World War I Great Migration of African Americans from the South to northern cities is generally well-known. Blacks also resettled the West Coast to work in defense industries during World War II, the subject of Chester Himes’ harrowing novel, If He Hollers, Let Him Go. In early histories of New Mexico, the focus has been upon the “Heroic Triad” of Anglos, Latinos and Native Americans who comprise this… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Richard Vargas... why my ex-wife will go to heaven

Richard is one of Albuquerque's strongest voices. He continues to walk down your streets, taking it all in and making sense. Today's poem about his ex-wife partially takes place in his ex-home, Rockford, Illinois. Incredibly, I lived there for 18 years myself.



Vargas is the editor of the poetry journal Mas Tequila Review. It just published its first issue (available for a reasonable six bucks). Purchase and publication info is… Continue

Recovery Cat 8.7.2010

The more consciousness is influenced by prejudices, errors, fantasies, and infantile wishes, the more the already existing gap will widen into a neurotic dissociation and lead to a more or less artificial life, far removed from healthy instincts, nature, and truth. C.J. Jung et. al., Man and His Symbols (1964), p. 49.

Regards,… Continue

Putting the Comic Back in Trauma (& Other Gutsy Moves)--NSFW

DO NOT CLICK to read more of this post on Duke City Fix unless you are of a sexually mature age and capable of stomaching some perky humor with your sexual explorations and exploitations. This is not for kids: I intend to be "graphic" when I discuss the work of Tamara Zibners in the Banal Retentive Show at SCA Contemporary... and what I have to say about Kris Mill's Gazebo might just turn you inside out. Feel free to sneak out:… Continue
