I WAS STANDING by the fire, ringed by smooth gray and golden stones, with smoke of sage and cedar floating into the New Mexican sky. The air was fragr...
Ever since my first visit to New Mexico in the 1970s, I've harbored a fantasy that my life would have a kind of Georgia O'Keefe final chapter.
Results from Latino Decisions' election eve poll are out. So are the media's national exit polls. And, of course, in almost every state and district we now have the final election returns.
What we're seeing in the Pacific Northwest is a future for humanity, if these modes catch on, that isn't bleak. As a patriot, a father, and a cannabis researcher, I can say with confidence that Measure 91 is part and parcel of that journey to a stronger, safer, healthier America.
Some days it gets wearying to face the additional challenges it takes for a woman to make it in the world of tech, but on days when it feels like that to me, I pull out the photo of all of the women that attended our first bootcamp.
Just over a year ago, The New Republic ran a story with a catchy, but slightly insulting title: "White People Love Hiking. Minorities Don't. Here's Why."

When President Obama signed the proclamation to designate the Organ Mountains/Desert Peaks National Monument in May, it was the last stitch of a tapestry to weave together several natural sites of extraordinary beauty and cultural significance.
Regardless of pipeline capacity, Permian Basin crude is shaping up to be the next big oil boom thanks to new technology.
Driving through New Mexico is also an experience giving you the freedom to do what you want when you want to do it. And no vehicle is better for road trips than the 2014 Cadillac ELR.
Perhaps that's why a recent hot spring themed five day road trip through the State of New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, has left me daydreaming about when I can go back to explore more.
California and Texas, as well as Arizona and New Mexico, aren't just on the geographical border of the United States and Mexico. They're also a frontier between the America that we were and the America we're rapidly becoming.
Last week, some friends came to visit my hometown. "We know it's a drag to have to be a tour guide in your hometown, but what if you became a tourist with us?" one of them suggested.
