Living in the Land of Enchantment: 10 Things to do in Albuquerque

There are so many places to see and things to do around here, it's really hard to pick just one to write about! This week, I decided to write about 10 (make that 11)  things to do in the area. Technically, it's more than ten, as I fit more than one into each number. Next time someone tells you there is nothing to do in Albuquerque, direct them to this post! :)

  1. Ride the…

When Bowie Played Burque

I have driven by Chocolate Dude I don't know how many times and each time I say, "I need to stop there and see what they are all about!" Tonight I did. The inside of the place is really neat as you will see in the coming days. I tried an…

Builders and Makers: Poets and Laureates

Spoken and written language is largely how we communicate with each other and even with ourselves. It is an ability and capacity that we can easily take for granted - like breathing. We rarely pay attention to it or are thankful for it. We talk. We breathe. We listen (sometimes). We read…

Posadas, Refugees, and Politicos

As Barelas starts to ready for Las Posadas de Barelas (on December 19 this year), I've been organizing my preparations for this event.

"I just ran out of bull-shit"

Mathematics? Economics? Foreign languages? None of those things, of course. In fact, one might well suppose that the…

New Mexico Book Tour — Better Late Than Never

During the 2008 presidential campaign, I spent six days in Albuquerque, knocking on doors all over town in support of Martin Heinrich, Tom Udall, and Barack Obama. I’m sure I only sniffed out a shadow of what the city and state have to offer, but I got enough to decide to set a political thriller there. During the 2008 presidential campaign.

Tomorrow, seven years after canvassing and phonebanking out of a red brick storefront office a block off Central, and…

Final dispatch APD Officer Daniel Webster

For the second time in just a few weeks, I got trapped in gridlocked traffic during the lunch hour today, as this city once again convulsed with grief from a violent gun shooting in a mass of vehicular traffic. As I was driving west down Lomas Boulevard, I could see the funeral procession of fallen APD…
