The Sunday Poem: Georgia Santa-Maria... Love Poem for my Stove

A wood-burning cook stove is the total opposite of that funky electric Hotpoint you had in your first apartment. There are tricks to using one but once you know how, it becomes a partner in turning a cold room into a sweet-smelling, warm kitchen. No wonder they are passed down from generation to generation.

Georgia Santa-Maria is an Albuquerque native, born in the old purple brick St. Jo’s on Martin Luther King. Jewell Thompson, her 5th grade… Continue

"The Sets In Da Buildin"- Is this how ABQ Hip Hop is?

I Resolve to Evolve

My lovely machine (to me, anyway) stands neglected. I haven't ridden in over a month and this galls me every time I look at it. Look at it's headlights. See that glint of reproof? Meant for me and only me, muchachos y muchachas.

Perhaps I should state here and now my intentions for this new year? Public humiliation as a punishment for failure is a great motivator, non?

Further Adventures in ABQ Recycling

So far I've dropped off hazardous household materials and taken a collection of glass bottles to go live in the great glass bottle ranch in the sky. Now, I find myself faced with a slow New Year clean out of my garage. The cardboard boxes I have no problem with - break them down and toss them in the recycling box. Unused (but still useful) items have been taken over to Thrift Town as ARC donations.

But what was taunting me were the two old… Continue

And Now, A Breakfast Experience, In Memoriam

There are restaurants of all ilk, possessing personalities all their own- like the ones where the chefs come out in their whites to yuk it up with the clientele. And of course, there's the kind that have rude waitstaff as part of their schtick. I like those. I have patronized dining establishments that were true "neighborhood… Continue

Of Rice Pudding and Resolutions

It is the first Monday of the New Year, and I am thinking of rice pudding and philosopher W.D. Ross. The rice pudding is easy – a jaunt to La Montañita for raisins and local eggs to mix with last night’s leftover rice for a quick and easy dessert for the progeny tonight. W.D. Ross is more complicated, as befits a philosopher.

All college… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Gary Brower... Shooting With Dick Near Corpus Christi

Dick Cheney continues to insert himself into the current political debate. Poet Gary L. Brower has the former VP in his metaphoric sights as he focuses on a very real hunting trip. The Incident occurred on February 11, 2006, when then U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney shot Harry Whittington, a 78-year-old Texas attorney, while participating in a quail hunt. Both Cheney and Whittington called the incident an accident.

Gary Brower is one of the… Continue

Morning Fix--Happy 2010 Peeps!

As I write this is it about 3:15 in the morning and I have not gone to bed yet, but I did celebrate the new year in the company of friends, indulging in champagne at midnight and some fan-friggin-tastic ritualistic shots of brandy with sugar and coffee coated limes (it was pretty fun) and giving the kids sparkling cider and letting them crash wherever they fell. Scanning the news channels is pretty uneventful this morning.

However, KRQE did have… Continue
