Or you hear thousands of hoof-beats trampling moist forest floor, thudding, the breath of men and horses straining, spears lifted. Or you hear a hawk lighting on a pine, claws clasping, soft bend of a branch, drops of morning dew falling to earth.



Or perhaps… Continue

Bittersweet Birthday: Twenty Years of the ADA in Albuquerque

It is a bittersweet birthday, this 20 year anniversary celebration for the Americans with Disabilities Act. I’ve yet to learn how Burqueños are marking this day, but perhaps folks will fill me in. To be sure, the celebration is less important than the achievements over the past 20 years. Legislation that provides accessibility to over 50 million Americans is a profound… Continue

There's few things that make me happier than having a street festival a stone's throw from my casita in Nob Hill.

Recovery Cat 7.24.2010

Bob Thomas, a local TV weatherman in 1950's Oklahoma City, was my idol. I imitated him using using a big cardboard box with the front cut out in the shape of a TV screen. I would crawl in through the back with a weather map drawn on some paper and present my report to my somewhat amused brothers.

The ABQ Garden Revisited

Now that we're finally coming out of our unseasonably hot streak, I can wander back into the garden for more than just the minutes it takes to water to keep the poor plants alive. I have a lot of first year plants that went in in the spring. So far, I have lost one lavender, one straightneck squash and one cat nip. The loss of the cat nip was mainly due to the attentions of the neighborhood cats. They literally loved it to… Continue
