It's a heavy weight to bear, and few carry it lightly. So while April (National Poetry Month), draws to a close, we here at Tempo are celebrating all things poesy, and honoring the poets who bring forth the muse's gifts. more

I painted this in 2016 and it isn't the first painting that seemed to be eerily prophetic. Kurt Vonnegut says artists are like the canaries miners used to take underground to warn them of poisonous gasses humans can't detect. more
For a time, I had four large plastic pots in my sun-soaked living room. I arranged them in a square and put a chair in the middle. In the pots I grew a jungle of shapely tomato plants, basil, thyme, carrots, daikon radishes and a random assortment of flowers. At some point I lost count of the hours I sat in that chair bathing in the tonic of the plant-laced scents of petrichor. more

All the proceeds from online donations will go to Holy Cross Hospital to provide personal protective equipment for the staff. more
Poetry is nearer to vital truth than history, Plato said, and throughout history, words and verses have been used by everyone with a message to share – from lovers, revolutionaries, prisoners and politicians. Poems – and the poets who write them – have a way of uplifting, empowering, sobering and humbling us with only a few lines. The art form's ability to express the things that roil and rage within us is its singular gift. more

Eight hundred pounds of carrots is the number that Taos farmer and agricultural visionary Micah Roseberry and her crew of six harvested last week on Anjel Ortiz’s farm in Chimayó. Roseberry said that for every crop there is a season, and the harvest won't wait. Many local farmers engaged in bringing in the crops agree. The water must flow to the seeds in the fields, people must be fed. Life goes on. more
As we head into week three of lockdown, at the same time Taos Pueblo observes their annual “quiet time,” I continue to take my early morning walks, which eventually lead me to a clearing where I have an unobstructed view of the mountain. It is my habit to give thanks at that moment, for the blessing of having arrived here once more. This attitude of gratitude carries through the remainder of my day, and these days, more profoundly than ever before. more

Taos actor, artist and agrarian Joel Larson remembers "the moment before everything changed and everyone could pretend that nothing's going to happen, or that it's someone else's fault. It's like before a first kiss or first anything. Afterward, the world as you know it has changed forever." more
John Lennon wisely once said, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans." He knew change to be a fundamental fixture of nature. Nature not only changes, but through change nature is able to evolve and thrive. more
A great song provides us with a "flux capacitor" for time travel. With a few notes, we are transported out of this chaos to a better place and time -- a time in the past when we were happy and secure, or even a time in the unknown, idealized future. It can relax us, unite us, inspire us and bring us, literally, into harmony. How can it work so magically? more
While most of us are getting used to social distancing and staying at home in response to the global coronavirus pandemic, Joanne Forman said she hasn't noticed much of a change in her daily life. The Taos composer is used to spending most of her time at home, and she is keeping to her regular routine. more
