Albuquerque in the New Year

The last day of the year is, of course, the perfect time to reflect on all that has happened.  I feel love for my beautiful family, my little patch of dirt in the North Valley where my home sits, and my animals that remind me of unconditional love. 

Speaking of love, I have a whole lot of it for my hometown. …

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…

Art by the People

The folk art/recycle art community in this town is full of raw talent, quirkiness, and in some cases, pure genius.  What better way to celebrate all of this than sharing art, music and food? Today was the 11th Annual Corkfest festival in the South Valley.
