It has finally happened, I have lapped myself in both space and time. A year ago last week I was in Texas and was back there again a few weeks ago. My first time around in Houston I was only there a couple of days and it was enough for me to know that I wanted to go back. It was eye opening to discover that there was a huge spectrum of art in Houston and I had only scraped the surface. Thank you Colette and Eric for your sweet and generous hospitality.
I am dedicating this post to The Flower Man, Cleveland Turner, who passed away 5 months ago. I am glad I got to see his place while he was still caring for it. Thank you Flower Man for creating such a beautiful, bright, colorful, junk, toy and flower covered home to share with every passer by. I appreciate your good work.
