A Look Back: Come Along For The Ride!
Last Updated on
Let’s take a look back at some intriguing places in and around Houston. With all of the information available to us daily, it is incredible that our brains can absorb it all. More amazingly, it is our fact of recall when desiring to pull up the information again. What we choose to remember versus what we deem less critical all gets sorted into the fantastic filing cabinet of our brain.
I am moving some of my articles over to HubPages but do not fear. These links will still take you to places of exploration in and around Houston. We will continue exploring Houston in the days, and hopefully, many years to come. Let’s take a second look at some of my earlier articles now at home on HubPages.
Let’s first review some articles that address some unique Houston restaurants. One of them is a school for chefs, and the other is where you can taste food as it is eaten in the country of Ethiopia.
Second, let’s take another look at some fantastic sculptural art in Houston. The alluring Cypress Flower was a temporary exhibit, but one in which we can learn much about its creator. The other two sculptures are permanent and add much to the enjoyment of public art in Houston. Included in this list will be historic downtown buildings. The signature topping of the Niels Esperson building is indeed a form of sculpture as it resembles a temple from across the pond.
Thirdly, let’s meander on over to some parks in our metro area. Bell Park may be tiny, but it is a beauty. The more massive Hermann Park nearby has the peaceful Japanese Gardens. If you have not yet visited there, you will surely want to take a look. Bagby Park has everything an urban park in the Midtown region of our city could hope to offer. And then there is the expansive 320-acre park out in Tomball. Plan an outing in Burroughs Park to have some fun and respite from the business of daily living. You will come away refreshed and rejuvenated.
Lastly, for some education about people who served our nation long before they were emancipated, and well after, be sure to head on over to the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum. You will leave with a greater appreciation of history.
Just for some final fun on this journey of remembrance, you might like to see some old cartoons produced by Charles Criner, a Houston artist, and learn about how and where they came to be shown.
