After 12 years of blogging, I needed a break from the blog world. While I have missed many of your posts during the last six weeks, it has been great spending time doing other things that had slipped by the wayside. Now, into the new year I feel refreshed and ready to go again. Hopefully, my keyboard skills and ability to construct complete sentences have not waned.
In recent weeks, one of the things I’ve enjoyed is exploring Houston. There is so much in this big city that I haven’t seen despite having lived here most of my life.
During the holidays Houston is said to be one of the most lit places in the country. I’ve seen some of the spectacular installations and am always amazed. This season something new was added to a popular attraction. The cistern at Buffalo Bayou Park was aglow.
With every column wreathed in color, it was hard to believe that until earlier in the 21st century, the cistern was Houston’s water source.
What was really fascinating were the ever changing hues. I had trouble imagining the technology that made this light show possible for only a few weeks.
Art in all it forms is a never ending source of delight for me, and the art scene in Houston is alive and well.
I can wander from gallery to gallery loving each artist’s uniqueness.
Hours can be spent in the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and I am particularly enthralled with installations in the Kinder Building which is a don’t miss site.
My weaver’s heart hums when I spot a fiber creation by the amazing Magdalena Abakanowicz whose creations validate the artistry of weaving.
Well, so much for a first post in some time. I send good wishes for this new year to all of you who make sharing my musings worthwhile.
