Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.



We went to the Bayou City Art Festival yesterday, and as usual, came away with a bunch of great new art. This show occurs twice a year; in the spring it's in Memorial Park and in the fall it's downtown. We've been going for years, and this fall show was one of the very best. Many of our favorite artists participate in both shows, but this year we also found lots of new stuff to love. Of course we never can get everything that we like, but we gave it a pretty good shot this time!

Here are some of the artists (read: the ones that have web sites) whose work is now gracing our walls or shelves:

And just to make it really perfect, IT'S FINALLY FALL! Woohoo!
