Social media, for me, has been both a curse and a blessing. A curse because of all the wasted time spent on it. A blessing because of all the interesting people I've met.

Yesterday Brian Fejer posted a photo on Facebook of his Nanee walking down Central Avenue with a friend. The photo looks like it was taken sometime in the 40s. It is a beautifully candid shot of two young girls in conversation. I understand…Continue
It is Thursday, so you know what that means! Throwback Thursday post! Here is something I wrote in February of 2009 about one of my neighbors in Los Griegos.
My neighbor Candice lives in the old San Isidro Church that is not far from my house.…Continue
Albuquerque is a quirky town and sometimes our citizens do quirky things. There are a plethora of weird news stories in Albuquerque and it was rather hard narrowing it down to just five. Most of these could go on the America's Dumbest…Continue
