Fall is Almost Here

"Fall in New Mexico. This is why we live here."

A co-worker said this today, and it has stuck with me.

I'm sure many other places also are nice in the fall, but this is the time when New Mexico really shines. Santa Fe just had its fiestas, the State Fair is ongoing, and roasting green…

Cafe Lush

While running endless errands during work I found a new little hole in the wall.  The food is great, service is fantastic, and the prices beat most restaurant in town. 

Entrees range from $5.95 to $8.95.  


And they have an espresso bar with trained baristas.  WOW!  


It's Cafe Lush.


They are open Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  They will soon be open on Saturday and maybe even Sunday, assuming the staff doesn't…

The end of the drought

The lightning photo drought that is.... 

The Sandias opened up on Saturday so that means that there has been some rain here, some of which happened just as I was landing the other day.  


But finally, on Sunday night I was able to get a series of shots from a storm that rolled over the Sandias and over Bear Creek Canyon.  …

Like Magic?

While roaming around Nob Hill and looking for something different, something new I found a tiny hole in the wall with a fun show.  I found a magic show.  Who knew we had a venue for live magic shows in town?  I didn't.


I've gone to three shows there and at $10 or so dollars its a good way to spend an hour and a half.  And the plus is these are really friendly folk! Parking is a challenge though - it is Nob Hill afterall.  The shows I've been to started at 7:00 p.m. and that…

Too Late

Tonight is Alice’s birthday, and it’s just been awful.

First, she waited for her food for 45 minutes at the restaurant. Seems they lost her order. Once it was delivered, she bolted her food. Then she and her daughter rushed to the car and sped through town to get to the theater. Finally, at two minutes before…

In remembrance of Albuquerque Film Festival founding father, Dennis Hopper, on the year anniversary of his death. We miss you Dennis!

In remembrance of our founding father, Dennis Hopper, on the year anniversary of his death. We miss you Dennis!


“In 2009, we set out to create a film festival in Albuquerque. It was my dream to screen Easy Rider since it was the 40th Anniversary of the film that I believe set the indie film revolution in motion.

Someone once told me to dream big so I dreamed that I was in the Kimo Theater watching Easy Rider with Dennis Hopper. I knew…

Pridefest 2011

Pridefest throughout New Mexico is more than gay and lesbian people celebrating who we are as persons.  It asks people who are not gay or lesbian to be more than tolerant.  It calls for acceptance, which is both a civil right and a human right.  And with that its time to prepare for Pride in New Mexico!


With a sizable gay and lesbian population and a scenic setting at the base of the soaring Sandia Mountains, Albuquerque has become one of the more gay-popular destinations in…

Relay for Life - Help Please

Among my many interests, work and involvement in the Duke City I am also a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life.  There are teams throughout the City looking to raise funds by various means to support cancer research and support cancer patients and their caregivers.  The team I belong to is called the Court Jesters, because we mostly work in legal support services.


Here's my pitch:  I am coordinating a fundraising event on Friday, August 12, a…

All New Mexican's need and deserve safe roadways

Because we are people there will always be crashes; as a group we are just not capable of perfect driving all the time.  But the kind of crash that claimed the life of one cyclist and left another in very critical condition last week can be made less likely.


One of the first complaints from motorists about cyclists is when they see a cyclist run a red light or commit some other traffic code infraction.  While I don’t think that cyclists should run red lights, can anyone site…

Ten Thousand Hours

I've sat with, written about, and truly believe that it was not until I had exceeded 10,000 hours of hands-on massage therapy in my private practice, that I BEGAN to have some true mastery over my craft, skill and technique. Now, as I approach 20,000 hours in this field, I'm sinking in deeper to the next level. I love this quote that came through my in-box early this morning:


"... ten thousand hours of practice is required to achieve the level of mastery associated with…
