All Is Good

I think it was last weekend that I felt all warm and fuzzy. No, not just from the summer weather. It had to do with what I found in the Houston Chronicle on my table that morning.

First of all, the Parade featured “It Takes A Garden”, a wonderful story about how community gardens are popping up to help communities hit with economic depression. The gardens bring all ages together and offer fresh, locally grown produce by teaching self-sustainability that offers hope, determination and love.

In the same magazine, “Man on a Mission” gave us an update on Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer, and his work to bring attention to the grave unemployment rate among veterans who served since 9/11. Without hesitation, he says the wants to make a difference.

The Fine Arts Guide included a 28-page thick edition replete with music, theater, opera, art, dance, readings and film events across town.

There was also a special 52-page Fall Bazaars & Festivals guide that truly represents our cosmopolitan community with everything from the Huntsville Antique Show, to the Brazilian Festival, the Korean Festival, and the all-time favorite Renaissance Festival. And let’s not forget state-wide Octoberfest celebrations, the ArtOberfest in Galveston, and Gatorfest in Anahuac!

As Kim Stinebaker points out in her article, from birds to bikes, this coastal region sure has a tremendous array of things to do and places to see all within a day-trip or a fun weekend.

With all this news, I felt that we are indeed going in the right direction and that all is good.
