Something amazing happened last night. That’s right AMAZING. A friend and fellow Duke City Fix member, Krista, posted something on her Facebook page that piqued my interest. She posted a link to the Albuquerque Museum of Art’s…Continue

Like many thriving cities throughout the nation, Albuquerque is the home, or close to home, for several famous people including actors, athletes, scholars, artists, and more. While the list is long, I have developed a list of these famous people that I recognize, pardon me if I missed any.
Why yes, there are several celebrities that are in the spotlight from ABQ, including:Continue
My sister and I have been getting a CSA box from Skarsgard farms every week since March, when she started an internship there. What I love the most about it, besides the amazing flavor and selection, is that we get to eat in growing cycles. It makes me feel more aware of the earth. We’ve gone through…Continue
Albuquerque is an incredible spot to live and to visit. While it is officially fall, and winter is quickly approaching, it is time to recollect all the fun things of the year, and things yet to come. Here are a couple of my most loved things about this city:
1. It's a tad bit of everything. While Albuquerque is a larger city, in the meantime it has that residential area feel. There are incredible things like the Kimo Theater, however no long lines of activity to manage. Wonderful…

I never wanted to be a teacher, primarily because my mother taught in Albuquerque Public Schools for so many years. She recently retired, but towards the end she felt like she had no control over what her children (first graders!) were learning due to standardized testing and the lack of creativity in…Continue
This month Community Acupuncture Albuquerque (CAA) is celebrating being part of POCA: the People's Organization of Community Acupuncture. It seemed like a great time to interview the founder of CAA,…Continue

The cottonwoods are an iconic part of Albuquerque – their golden color against a dark clouded or turquoise sky in the fall and the cotton fluff that floats like snow in June, illuminated by the setting New Mexican sun, are memories that aren’t easy to forget.
The smell in the bosque…Continue
The other day, I spoke with a gentleman here in Albuquerque who'd fallen victim to one of the many, many foreclosure relief scams that are out there. This one was clever: the company takes $5000, plus 10% of any savings the homeowner gets from his bank's loan modification program, but…Continue
I think many people connect to the geography of wherever they grew up, whether that is close to the mountains, out on the mesa, near the river, and so on. My connection is with the valley, the river, and the bosque but more specifically, the alfalfa fields in the South Valley. It started when I was in…Continue
Not too long ago, Albuquerque Poet Laureate Jessica Helen Lopez and poet Don McIver asked poets and photographers to help them create a Love Letter to Albuquerque. This is the result. Thank you and we do love…Continue
When I came back to America after a very rough trip through Europe, I was virtually destroyed mentally. I thought I was an awful person, I had no respect for myself, and I absolutely didn’t love myself. I won’t get into why I felt this way, but it is important to my story. I struggled constantly with my self-worth. I would talk down to myself. I told myself that I was ugly and, while I knew I could be a contributing member of society, I didn’t want to be. I just wanted to stay in my room all…Continue

Survival of the impending zombie apocalypse is almost completely dependent on where you are. Guns and gear are an obvious necessity, but if biters are popping out of a dense forest — good luck turning around and attacking before they take a bite from your shoulder. This is no time for surprises.
If you're going to mount a tactical offense and establish a strong resistance against the undead, you want your geography to be a…Continue
Looking for something to do this weekend? There are plenty of local events posted here on DukeCityFix.com... plus a few here you might want to check out:
I'll be honest. My first official yoga classes were with Jane Fonda on a VHS tape in my living room. When I eventually mustered up the courage to find a teacher, I had no idea what to look for, or even that there were different styles. Overwhelmed, I made my decision based on 2 factors: location and price. I ended up at a great place with some wonderful teachers. I was really lucky. This was years ago when there were maybe three places from which I could…Continue
