Adios #Mountainair…howdy #Yuma

…Colorado that is. I left Mountainair on July 9 and Albuquerque Saturday morning, July 11. We arrived in Yuma with enough daylight for me to have a look around, start orienting myself and get a sense of place. Yuma Main Street images do not look that different from Broadway -- just broader and with stoplights, so I picked the fields, tree line, water tower and silos (in the right hand background) photo to show the difference.

I'll be blogging about Yuma and settling in there now but on another blog ~ either a new or existing one. The scene above would make a good addition a "places along the way" collage or slide show with images from other places.

What to Do in #ABQ, & more from @DukeCityFix


Network Email
It's one of the best and funniest weekends of the year! And we're super-excited to be giving away two pairs of tickets to the 9th Annual Southwest FunnyFest, benefiting New Mexico AIDS Services! the show is Saturday night at 7:30pm at the KiMo Theatre. Act fast to win!
It's been a week of weird weather and the weekend looks like more of the same. Why not settle in for a nice few days of reading the blogs, visiting local events, and staying out of the rain?
And so much more! - Adelita and Sophie

Thinking outside the pallet: 10 #garden projects

yesterday looked a lot like Spring. Today looks looks a lot less so ~ all the more reason to share heartening pictures of yard and garden projects. This could as well go to Everybody Eats except for being as much about small scale DIY place making as growing food. Take it as an early spring start on blog cultivation and renewal.

#Placemaking News: Nominate Your Favorite Great Public Market

…too late for the conference registration but Catalonia probably wasn't in any town planner's budget. Besides, this is more about sharing place making ideas and visiting public markets around the world. Should I have sent this to places along the way or to market to market instead? I don't think so. For starters, it's about the place-making not the place: you make the place wherever you are. Mountainair is where we are. What can we take and apply to our local public spaces and markets (farmers, festivals and informal -- including the one at the bend in the road) even if a trip to Catalonia IRL isn't in the book?

When a place is great, it just clicks. We know it. You know it. These are the places we remember most vividly, the places where serendipitous things always seem to happen, the places to which we return—in the stories we tell if not in person—all throughout our lives.
