Art, Kids, Albuquerque!

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…

Cottonwoods and Perseverance

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…

Free (or low-cost) legal help in Albuquerque

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…

Scent of the South Valley

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…

How coloring my hair changed my life

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…

New Mexico is the best place to survive the zombie apocalypse

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…

Beginner's Guide to Yoga (Styles, Schools, Traditions) by Elise Espat

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…

Something New for ABQ

Most of you know that I am a burlesque performer. Most of you know that I am very proud of what I do, and the international community that supports the burlesque movement.  Every day I learn something new, and am in awe of and inspired by what performers in this genre are doing.  It is one of the most eclectic and jaw-dropping performance mediums I have ever known.  The traditional bump, grind, and tease aside - burlesque is…
