    I awoke early this morning having considered last night taking a drive up to the Valle Caldera to check on the trees, but at 6AM, that particular urge left me. I went back to bed and enjoyed another hour and a half of needed sleep. The morning passed in gross misappropriation. By 1, I...

    Closing Minutes

    It’s 11:30 PM, and I am back at it. The TV is on to ESPN 2- the Lobo football team, after a blowout loss to Fresno State last weekend (38-0), is hanging around, trying to catch Colorado State. It’s late in the 4th, and CSU just went up ten on a field goal kick....

    Thanks, Cubs, for a great year as the champions.

    It’s the middle of the fourth inning in game five of the series between the Cubs and the Dodgers. It’s a game where, if the Cubs won, they would prolong their season another day, and where if the Dodgers won, they would be heading to the 2017 World Series. It’s 9-0 Los Angeles right...

    Tonight I boycotted a Lobo men’s soccer match against UCLA after work to sit through what might have been the final game of the season for the Cubs. I felt it was my duty to watch the game, despite the fact the Cubs were down 3-0 in a 4 game series to the Dodgers....

    You drew the plan and chose the lot and leveled the earth and tore out the trees and laid the slab and placed the pipes and raised the walls and spaced the windows and mulled the materials and set the roof and attached the shingles and picked each door and painted each room and...

    What We Want

    Love doesn’t always give us what we want. It flies from what we wish, what we dream, these radiant visions, and lifts our hopes for the right, the strong, the good, so when the painted picture dries, and perfection stares back at us, in brilliant hues, we see truth, and promise, and clarity.

    I wanted to see some fall colors, so I decided to drive out to the Jemez northwest of Albuquerque today. My drive dropped me first at Perea Nature Trail, a hidden attraction at the corner of 550 and the turnoff to San Ysidiro and the Jemez Valley. The trail offered a nice walk through...

    The (Mini) Reunion

    It took me 15 minutes to decide to drive over. Once I was in the lot in front of the bar, it took me another 15 minutes to work up the nerve to go in. I don’t know why. These are people I went to high school with, old classmates. These are people I’ve...

    Tonight was game 5 between the Washington Nationals and the Chicago Cubs for the National League Division Championship. The winner would go on to play the Dodgers in the NL Championship Series. I was ready to watch it at 6 PM. I was still watching it at 10:30, chewing my nails and covering my...
