Dear Dr. Ted:

I am an avid fan of the news but lately, I have noticed I am exhausted of hearing the travesties of this pandemic, the gluttony and debauchery of people in power, and lack of humanistic thinking. Even though I am grateful for my life and am doing okay, I feel this deep sadness that is eating at my passion and love getting up in the morning. Do you think other people are feeling this way or am I just in a strange spot?

Thanks, Singing the Blues

What’s been your inspiration? A home improvement show, perhaps – or, maybe things are just looking a little tired and you’re ready for a change.

However the bug has bitten you, it’s time for a visit to Dan’s Flooring & Window Coverings, where for 32 years the Gonzales family – Daniel, Christina and son Jeremiah – have been serving Northern New Mexico.

Ted Wiard, a former Taos tennis coach and avid player of the sport, stepped onto a court this summer for the first time in 24 years.

He was more than a little nervous. 

“First it was super awkward.

I was afraid I was going to fall on my butt,” Wiard said. “But really my fear was, I was waiting for a phone call. I worried if I picked up the racket, someone was going to die.”
