The future of print is print

By M.E. Sprengelmeyer The Communicator, Santa Rosa, NM The future of print is in print. Maybe you’ve heard that before, because I’ve only said it a few thousand times – each time somebody has tried to tell me that printed newspapers are dead in the internet age. They say we’re an anachronism, that owning a… Read More ›

Song of the Lion

Book Review: Song of the Lion

Happy Halloween

Hootie tunes and shrieking screams scary thingies in your dreams. On this haunted, hunted night what next on tap will give you fright? Creeping, leaping, jumping, sneaking is that a ghost at whom you’re peeking? Tiptoe back, slither down the hall when spooky phantoms on you call. Get into a warm and comfy bed, pull… Read More ›

Orage Flowers

Flower Power

When I bought these (I think from Salman Ranch Nursery near Mora), I believe it said ‘daisy’ on the sticker. These don’t look like daisies. What you don’t see in this photo is another clump of similar flowers – mostly gone now – that have sort of striped petals. I know, weird, huh? A walk… Read More ›

Chili Ristra

Autumn’s Favor

Come autumn, Mom couldn’t pass up a roadside farm stand. She had to stop, shop, buy. The bright array of produce – juicy apples – plump pumpkins – piquant chili peppers – green and yellow squash and more, much better than any store. Vibrant color, mixed aromas of melons, dirt from the field, sawn wood… Read More ›
