The Streets of Albuquerque in 1983

I bet the dude keeps filming the gas prices and thinking "man, can you believe gas is over a buck??"

An Evening With Josh Ritter





The Venue



First off, in my opinion, the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a treasure. This night specifically, the Albuquerque Journal Theater was a wonderful intimate space to experience live music. Thanks to Neal Copperman, AMP Concerts… Continue

Serendipity

I've been walking in a smiley daze for days

Almost afraid if I move too fast

I'll stumble and wake up

and the dream will end.



It's been a while since I've had a valentine

it's been forever since I've asked

would you be mine

afraid to move too fast

so the dream won't end.



Maybe a sign

that's what I need

pointing - that way or this

I've been still for too long

NM's Oldest No More

So for my Saturday morning walk, I decided to head over to Whataburger at Eubank & Candelaria for biscuits and gravy and a cup of coffee, only to discover along the way that an old friend is gone...

The Crying One

A friend of mine is taking a class at the U called Urban Legends. She asked me to recount an urban legend that I'd heard, and of course the most famous here in NM, in various forms is...



La Yarona, La Yorona, or more correctly La Llorona (the crying one)...



I first heard this story from my abuelita on my mom's side. Grandma on my dad's side was "gramma garcia" and on my mom's side, "gramma gramma".



In her broken english, gramma gramma terrified generations with… Continue
