Most who know me are well aware I’m a bleeding heart liberal.  I tend to vote and make decisions on a socialist ballot. But I disagree with democrats and liberals on the subject of climate change. When you look at the WHOLE PICTURE of our Earth’s climate, particularly it’s times of heat and cold, it really is difficult to believe we humans will have that much effect on the planet’s outcome.  Our planet has been through many many severe temperature changes, long before humans evolved. It’s hard for me to believe our planet’s current warming… Read Article →

Life really DID seem to be a fairytale.  I was living with the most beautiful girl I’ve ever known, in an old magic adobe house, just above the river.  Our road would take you down along our river, through its canyon, until you reached the John Dunn Bridge on the Rio Bravo.  Our Rio Hondo joined the Bravo just below that bridge. I painted two of the best things I’ve ever done during that period. I learned that magpies are not all they’re cracked up to be, though watching them frequently cracked me up! I’d… Read Article →

I’ve been posting on my other blog, bahfish.com, since early in the Summer; but I’ve come back to post here as it’s the blog where most of my family & friends look for updates.  I’ve had this blog running for nearly ten years.  I know there are some broken links and problems with images over the last two years so I will work to get those corrected. “Love & Tolerance” is our code.  

Like the Dire Straits song but reverse the direction. Leaving tomorrow or Friday for a week in the North country, mainly the headwaters of the Costilla River (right on the Colorado border) and the Blanca Peak wilderness area.  I’ve looked at Blanca Peak in awe, studied all the maps, and decided the best place to camp is accessible from the NE side (adding another 3 hours of driving). My good friends, Debbie and Debi, will be joining us for the last few days of the adventure.  My best friend and sometimes nurse, Lysa, will be… Read Article →

Kalya Scintilla played Saturday night at the Startribe music festival on Taos Mesa – and his show was excellent!  The whole Startribe experience was an ideal introduction, for me, to the local scene.  Playing music outdoors here is complicated by our infamous wind (especially out on the mesa!), but I thought the sound system was up to the task.  We were on our feet wigglin’ for nearly all of Scintilla’s set. I was pleased to see so many splendid dancers live in the community, and thrilled by all the fire dancing and poi! There was… Read Article →

It’s like a dream come true to be able to say, “I live in Taos.” But now I do! Taos is one of 3-4 places in the US where I’ve traditionally driven out of town wondering, “Why am I leaving?”  So it’s soooo awesome to finally live here! I actually live in a small community outside Taos on the Rio Hondo. It’s not far, though.  Everyone works and shops in Taos. Based on the characters I’ve seen or met so far, this little community is a dead ringer for Chamisaville in John Nichols’ New Mexico Trilogy!… Read Article →
