Library of the Performing Arts – Jerome Robbins Movie

This was one of those things I love. As I try to learn all about dance and the history and the major artists involved I am lucky to have found the Library of the Performing Arts.  There are weekly programs with guest speakers, and archival film, and even sing alongs.   Its possible I am […]

MoMA #ArtSpeaks

It has appeared on my calendar the last Tuesday of the month for a year I’ll bet. And today I finally made it.  MoMA #ArtSpeaks Today 12-3. Reflecting on the first presentation which lasted 7 minutes, I think this is where you will find me on those last Tuesday’s of every month.  I loved what […]

Austin – Day 7 – Friday

  The plan for today was to see a mission in San Antonio.  And go to Cake Art. We never made it.  We had a great day anyway.  We got off track when we figured we cold go by way of Canyon Lake.  It was a huge distraction. I read about canyon lake in our […]

Austin day 6. Thanksgiving

We had a reservation at the Hyatt on the river. It was a disaster. I complained. It was free. What a lovely brunch.  Kudos go out to Meagan at the Hyatt for really understanding. We walked from the condo over the bridge and along the greenway path to the statesman bat viewing and on until […]

AUSTIN – Day 5

We started the day off on time today at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden.  Umlauf was a UT professor and prolific sculptor, he and his wife lived next door to a dump that eventually was turned into this fabulous garden.   Even if you dont love his sculpture it was a beautiful place to be outside. […]

Austin Day 4

Today we are hoping for a hike, or two, depending on so many things: our feet. the weather, time.  And a bit of sight seeing. Starting out early we head first to the Cathedral of Junk, then on to a walk at Barton Creek, then if all is good we will lunch at The Picnic […]

AUSTIN Day 3- Road trip

This post is under Development We set the GPS to avoid highways and take us first to Pedernales Falls State Park.  We wanted to walk a bit and see the falls.  When we arrived…   The whole drive was pretty and we were able to visit a number of rv parks. Our first was up […]

AUSTIN DAY 2

I would like to say as we sit at El Mercado waiting for our sopa and enchiladas at almost 2 pm that we had a late start today but really not. We had a bit of a false start that was almost a jackpot when we headed out at 10 to Stubbs bbq for their […]

Austin – Night 1

So Brad was home sick with a cold but it was the last night of Creek Walk, he was asleep, what would it hurt to sneak out for a bit.  I took an uber across town to 9th and the Creek and the line wrapped around the block.  I got on  Im not a line […]

AUSTIN. DAY 1

I woke up early in our fabulous borrowed downtown Austin condo and set to work on a plan. Big thanks to my friend Kim who sent me some info on what’s going on in Austin today. With that in hand and a need for a grocery, a bakery, and after some research, I added the […]
