Walkability - Barelas Style

I’m up too late on a Saturday night (for reasons of insomnia, not fun) and feel too groggy to throw on some clothes and walk a few blocks down the street to the Church of Beethoven this Sunday morning.

So I make my mug of Ohori’s Italian Roast drip coffee, all the while dithering over whether I want to start my day with the New York… Continue

Poster Child in Barelas

Ever since the summer of 1975, when I hung a foldout poster from Elton John’s Captain Fantastic album on my bedroom closet door, I have been a sucker for posters. Earlier this month I stumbled upon Puerto Rico Literario, a small gem of a poster art collection at the… Continue

Sunport Blogging, Part 1

Once again I’m blogging in an airport upon wending my way back to Albuquerque from (yet another) conference.

These days the Sunport seems more familiar than my backyard garden, now brimming with apricots and plums ready for cooking, canning, freezing, and drying.
