My short bio
let's see ...short bio

I love to dance, so I love music that is danceable,
ok I really just love music
but it helps a ton if its danceable!

I am a student at UNM, a volunteer at The Vortex Theater, a mom of 3 teenagers.
I love art and try my hand at it once in a while...I'd probably be better if I tried it more often but; it is not my educational pursuit so art is a leisure activity for me.

I am a closet singer so I will never sing in public *shakes head huh uh*

I'm a mamma that loves to boogie, play, and be silly. My kidittos tease me that I need to grow up and I remind them that I never will :) And neither should they!

I find joy in the little things and love to learn!

There's lots more to me but this is supposed to be short *grins*

Poetry, A look through the journals of my past

We are the same 

Soft quiet wind rushing through glimpses

Many faces seen through your eyes

Hazy, drenched

Reflections of you

Who you are today

You turn from me

Why turn? Thoughtless to me of you

We are the same

Sift through pebbles

Stones of…


Ready to travel

45 days and I leave for Prague.  My intention is to get a job there and stay there for at least a year after I get my license.  I keep going round and round with where I want to go first.  But as this is all getting closer, I am realizing and remembering that I want to go to several countries and I can’t go to all of them at the same time.  The more experience I get, the better able I will be to get the specific locations that I want.

I also have to figure out locations to teach where…


I've been into foreign films lately

My newest view of which I am now a big fan?   The War of the Arrows.  It's a Korean action film. 

War of the Arrows Poster

Generally when I think of movies from the far east, I'm not going to lie, I stereotype and expect to see a fair bit of hand to hand combat (h2hc) the likes of karate, kung fu, etc.  depending on where the film is made.

I was happily shocked to find no real h2hc fight scenes.  I say happily…

I went to Marble last night. Marble Brewery on 1st and Marble.

It was a last minute decision, I figured there would be music as Marble has really put together a great weekend lineup of live music, but I didn’t know what band…


I saw a movie

Dude.  I watched  A State of Mindthe other day. 

One, this movie demonstrates the most beautiful way to create Communism.  If I had to be part of a communist nation, I hope that it has something this amazing to participate in, hands down. 

Two, I have never been more scared of a whole country before in my life. 

The more I think about it, the more I realize just how scary this threat really is.  We all know that the…

You can just go to and you can contact her through the opt in form and you can also get some free video lessons as well. I'm sure she'd love to hear from and talk to you. Me? My back hurts just watching her. I'll tell her to expect to hear from you.
