Recovery Cat 8.13.2011

Being right, defending our positions, takes an enormous amount of mental energy and often alienates us from the people in our lives. Needing to be right - or needing someone else to be wrong - encourages others to become defensive, and puts pressure on us to keep defending.

Albuquerque among 20 strongest performing metro areas



Listmania strikes again! Albuquerque is listed among America's top 20 strongest metro areas, according to the Brookings Institution. Albuquerque shows up first in the alphabetized listing of the top 20 strongest areas, but coverage on the Huffington Post places ABQ at 15th out of 100. Still, not too shabby.



The study looks at various… Continue

New Mexico, A Hot Bed For The Emerging Green Economy

New Mexico is a “Hot Bed” for the emerging Green Economy. It’s a garden bed nurturing the seeds of change to fruition. I have been on a job search for five months in the Land of Enchantment, and during this time I have found a myriad of self employed people and businesses built on the foundation of sustainability. My searches have been focused primarily in Albuquerque and the surrounding region, and my Google searches have brought me to people and businesses through out the entire state. For… Continue

Let's put it to the tourists, or how to bite the hand that feeds you.

As an innkeeper, I belong to all the regular innkeeping groups and stay tight with the associations that watch dog what is going on in the legislature regarding tourism in NM.



So, I got a notice today from TANM (Tourism Association of NM) via the NM Bed & Breakfast Association. Apparently there is a freshman Senator from Corrales who thinks it would be a good idea to add a statewide lodge tax of 10% on all lodging across the board - statewide. Let me tell you something about… Continue

Top Ten Reasons to Invest in the Albuquerque Art Scene (Bad Economy or Not!)

As a professional artist and gallery owner, I am getting sick and tired of hearing people say that art is a great investment, during GOOD times. Why only during good times? Good times or bad, art is a GREAT investment. I once read a quote that said "During good economic times, people collect art, but during bad economic times, people invest in art". I wish I could remember where and when I read this so I could credit the person who said it. The point is, art is not just a luxury item, it IS an… Continue

Sit. Stay.

I posted this for a short time last weekend and then pulled it because I wanted to think about it for a while before posting again. There have been quite a few blogs and discussions about Albuquerque's future and growth, each one prompting me to wonder if I feel good or bad about it. It's a conflict in my head.



I moved here in March, 31 years ago. I was very disappointed with the lack of green, the lack of (what i knew as) ethnic food, the sand that blew in my face, the lack of… Continue

Looking Back - Looking Forward

I can remember driving to New Mexico from the east coast about eight years ago, heading back home to my roots you might say, and getting gas as I pulled into Albuquerque. I paid $1.19 per gallon and I was worried about how my wallet was going to stretch around the high price of fuel. It had been cheaper in Virginia. How much cheaper I cannot tell you, but I remember thinking that $ 1.19 per gallon was going to kill me in the long run. Later that year I bought a small motorcycle and was thrilled… Continue
