Another Form of Growth

Had a great time with Son in Law, Chris Daley, this week end.  He drove down to see old friends and go feral pig hunting.  Love him.

Talked  about much.  Came to a conclusion that this is another way to grow:
  Become friends with people not your age.  Hang out with people whose first language is not the same as yours.  Get to know someone who doesn't come from your social class.  This is how you see the world.  This is how you GROW.

Date Correction: May 19th FRIENDS OF THE ARTS

Date Correction: May 19th, Friday, FRIENDS OF THE ARTS

FRIENDS OF THE ARTS save this day--May 18th!

YOU will not want to miss this day, May 18th, a Thursday, from 10 am until 11:30 am at the unique home of Scott and Kelly Bradley, 1 Paigebrook, Westlake, Texas.

A brief talk will be given about the house that Dilbeck, architect, designed for the owner of the Dallas Morning News, Dealy, in 1934, and moving the house in many segments to it's present location at 1 Paigebrook.   You will not believe the planning, the energy, the money, the time,  it took for the rehabilitation of this "one of a kind" house (my all-time favorite in all the world!).

Tours of the house will take place and we are fortunate to have Chris McGuire, Classic Guitar Society, serenade the group.  The group will adjourn to a luncheon at The Classic Cafe in Roanoke, Texas, at 11:30 am.   Renova Williams has been the spark for this program.

Speaking of The Classic Guitar Society:  The Assad Brothers (Brazilian Masters) will be in Ft. Worth on February 16th at 7:30 pm. and in Dallas on February 17th at 7:30 pm.  A Gala Reception will be held on February 18th at 8 pm.  For further info and tickets call: 817 498 0363.  New York Times: "A kind of wizardry lies within the playing of Sergio and Odair Assad. They produce a supple, flawless. unified sound."

De Cluttering Life

I am in a new sense of "de cluttering" my life.  Have done some cleaning out and when you find things you did not remember you had and even worse don't know what they are, then you have too much "stuff".

Am finding that emotional and mental well-being is connected to clutter.  Isn't that interesting!

Finally getting rid of my horse Arabian Native Costumes and Side Saddle costume.  Crazy that I have these things and have not used them for decades.  They were an important part of life.  The wonderful memories of the times with people and horses is beyond description.  The fun and laughter of some of the quirky experiences that happen are priceless.

Here are a couple of my costumes along with a painting of a horse.
