“What’s can we do to have a secure water?”, asked one of participants in our January Green Café on Climate Change and Water Resources in New Mexico. The answer is, lots if we choose to do it. On Saturday June 21, (9:30-noon) in the Performance Space, La Tienda experts from the Eldorado Water and Sanitation District, city of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County will gather to answer your questions about plans to prepare for a more drought-prone. They can make plans but turning plans into actions that allow us to adapt to a more drought-prone future require public understanding and support. Will you join us in a effort to become informed and support the changes we need to make?

Chess Master Plays Multiple, Simultaneous Games and Discusses New Book
Lisa, a Chess Novel
“Two thumbs up. This is the most realistic chess novel ever.” Full review here. – Chess Writer Dana Mackenzie
Watch the official trailer here: https://vimeo.com/79862070
The debut novel by chess grandmaster Jesse Kraai tells the story of a 13-year-old California girl who defies her mother and her school to study chess with Russian master Igor Ivanov. Lisa is an exploration of what it means to get an education in chess, and a meditation on what makes the game so compelling to those who play. It is a fantastic story with a cast of characters that will be familiar to anyone who’s ever set foot in a tournament hall.
Lisa is available in ebook and paperback.
For more about her story please visit:

“Lisa will give non-chessplayers a glimpse into what living in this bubble is really like.” – Grandmaster and chess writer Josh Friedel

A free live presentation and book signing by Bernard Lietaer and Jacqui Dunne on their new book, Rethinking Money: How New Currencies Turn Scarcity into Prosperity will be held on March 2nd at The Performance Space at Eldorado from 2-6:00 p.m. Be part of one of THE most important conversations of the year here in Santa Fe.
Communities, businesses and governments around the globe are reconsidering the concept of money. In Rethinking Money, Lietaer and Dunne explore the origins of our current monetary system, built on bank debt and scarcity, revealing the surprising and sometimes shocking ways its unconscious limitations give rise to so many of our current and serious problems.
They will offer real world examples of ordinary people and their communities using new money, working in cooperation with national currencies, to strengthen local economies, create work, and beautify cities.
To watch a 3 minute clip on Lietaer go to https://vimeo.com/41960492.

The Womens Tree and La Tienda Present:
Documentary Screening and Discussion
Saturday, November 17, 2012
6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
The Performance Space at La Tienda
Facilitated audience discussion follows the film.
Admission is free of charge. Donations are welcome.
Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the documentary Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.
In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 90th in the world for women. Please help us educate and make a difference for the next generation of women.
Presidential Debate Watch Parties:
Phil Duran, writer and director of “Missing You,” retired after twenty years from a career in law enforcement and began making films. One of his earlier works, “The Righteous and the Wicked,” is currently distributed on DVD by Lionsgate.
“Phoenix,” the short film that precedes “Missing You,” is a haunting tale about a boy coming of age in a post-apocalyptic world, who is torn between saving the life of his father and running away with a beautiful adventuress. It was forged during the Albuquerque 48-hour film project this July and marks the directorial debut of Sarah Northrop, who served as assistant director on “Missing You.” It was co-written by Northrop and Giuseppe Quinn, photographed by Craig Butler, and stars Phil Duran, Merritt Glover and Dylan Montoya.
Reel New Mexico screens films with a New Mexico connection, on the second Thursday of each month, at 7 p.m. in The Performance Space in La Tienda, off Avenida Vista Grande at 285. For a delightful evening, be sure to catch “Missing You” and “Phoenix” on October 11. A contribution of five dollars is suggested at the door. Directions to the venue are at www.reelnewmexico.com

“My three daughters know little of my childhood years, the many places I lived while growing up, and of my maternal grandparents with their distinctive old-world culture. As I mine these almost forgotten remembrances I realize how much my world differed from theirs. It is for them that I write.” — AJ Melnick
Linda Alessi writes a monthly column “In my Time” for THE COOPPA Guardian newspaper in Florida. She writes human interest articles. She published in 2007, Flowers for Momma, her first novel. She is a member of two writing groups and continues to expand her horizons.
Presented by Michael BaronSuggested admission: $5
For a very long time a weaver of patterns has been busy creating beautiful tapestries out of planetary orbits and molecular interstices. This evening we will peer through a geometers looking-glass into these micro/macro worlds, whose harmonies are guided by Fibonacci of Pisa, and spun into delicate DNA fibers that make up the warp and weft of our proportional being. Megalithic stone workers carve polyhedra for Plato, who inscribes them in the Timaeus, to be assembled by our children someday. Archimedes kicks his faceted soccer ball toward history’s net and right into the hands of a physicist goalie who shouts ‘Buckminsterfullerene’! Kepler is tangling tetrahedra together, Escher is deconstructing the dodecahedron, and Omar Yaghi creates metal-organic polyhedral frameworks to store hydrogen gas that may someday power our cars.
This muse of geometry can be heard in the tiny concert of atoms, the vasty whorls of galaxies and in the core of an applestar.
Tonight we will observe the maker of patterns, busy on the geometer’s loom, weaving timeless ornamental threads, while Pythagoras arranges his mnemonic triangle, for a moment, in our morning sky…

Reel New Mexico Independent Film Series presents 3 fabulous short films
“El Salon Mexico” is a charming animated adventure set to the music of Aaron Copland. A boy, his burro and his rooster sneak away from home one night to see their first fiesta, never imagining the adventures they will have. The film, funded with a $20,000 New Mexico New Visions grant, was made by Paul Glickman, an Oscar-winning animator, and Tamarind King, a talented young graphic artist and animator who began work on it when she was still in high school. It made the first round in the “animated short” category for an Oscar in 2011 and has won numerous festival awards, including “Best Animation” in the Rome (Georgia) International Film Festival and “Best Animation Short for kids 8-12” in the Kids First Film Festival. Santa Fe filmmaker Michael Zeilik, executive producer of “El Salon Mexico,” will discuss the film.
“The Birds of the Bolsa Chica” was made by Santa Fe filmmaker Hal Ralston, initially so his wife, a teacher, might have something to show her students before a field trip to the Bolsa Chica wetlands. The State of California purchased 880 acres of the wetlands in 1997 for an ecological preserve and restoration was completed in 2004. Ralston made the film to celebrate the birds, who he says are the true owners of the Bolsa Chica. The music soundtrack was added to focus the children’s attention on the actions of the birds. Hal Ralston will discuss his film.
“Community Garden: New Mexico/South Africa” was made by Santa Fe filmmaker Debra Denker to explore what the El Dorado School Community Garden in the community of Eldorado just south of Santa Fe and another community garden in the poor, rural community of Acornhook in South Africa have in common. A lot, she discovered. Both are part of a worldwide community garden movement which, in addition to encouraging production of fresh, nutritious food, benefits their local communities and underscores the importance of water to sustainable food cultivation. Debra Denker will discuss her film with the Reel New Mexico audience.
