I know you were looking for some kind of road stories, Lisa... but road stories are better told when being reflected on. They come in snippets of information that need to be stitched together to make any kind of sense... like a series of white lines that only turn into a highway when you've backed away from them a little.…See More

"A wonderful story of a beautiful land, David.  I am drawn to New Mexico in part because it is so ancient and, if I pay attention, even now glimmers of history surround me there.  Thank you for helping me to see that history more clearly.…"

Caught In The Spin Cyce... Why You Are Probably Wrong About SOPA

Now that a national hissy fit has been thrown regarding proposed legislation to stop rampant internet piracy (thus cowing the bovine politicians we sometimes mockingly refer to as our 'leaders' into submission),  I think we should look at the real issue at hand regarding…

Reflections From A Native Son

Last week, my home state of New Mexico marked its centennial anniversary of statehood. Before that, it was a territory. And before that, it was part of Mexico. And so on. 

New Mexico was given statehood in 1912. They taught us that in school, like they taught us about Coronado…

Mitt Romney and John Huntsman Shoot A Dog In Utah

As Joe Walsh once stated in an album title, "You Can't Argue…

Wild Thing

Nature is the Great Teacher, the Great Leveller... the Big It. So it is always humbling to learn from Her.

My most recent encounter was in the world of that most humble of creatures, the squirrel. Tree rats, as some folks disparagingly call 'em around here. 

Squirrels are generally perky little creatures, chattering with their tails wagging in warning to their kin about potential danger. They bury nuts, which grow into trees, if they aren't eaten beforehand. And…

hey david! can i ask you to repost your intro without your personal web address? i had just posted about this here and on fb. we're trying to keep it focused here and keep the judges focused only your song entry instead of all your work. love the intro, but in fairness to the rules, i need to keep the external websites off for now. if you win, we'll promote all of you! Promise! thanks, david!

Hello David! This gives me a chance to let you know that I've been relishing "Raining Cats and Dogs." I haven't gotten around to commenting on it but I do stop by every now and then and give it another read!
