We, in Dallas, obtained a new art exhibit quite by chance this week. And like the big cities around the world, it will only be here temporarily. So, we went to pay it our respects. It wasn’t exactly Banksy coming to town to spice up the side of a building, but it is loved, if... Continue Reading →
Rejoice, It’s a New Decade!
We’ve been gone a while. I think we owe you an explanation. In November 2018 I released a blog talking about finding our personal wonderlands. In 2019 I was challenged to listen to my own words.

Cruising through the streets of Dallas, we continued our search for iconic signature features of the city. We weren’t disappointed. Only a few blocks down the road we found what we were looking for. The Steers are running in Pioneer Plaza. Well, they’re bronze so they’re not really running, but they look like they are. ... Continue Reading →

The independence of Texas truly shows through in the songs and music of her native sons and daughters. The premier spot in... Continue Reading →
