Thursday night

August 21st, 2009 (11:29 pm)

current mood: happy

What a great venue Houston's Té House of Tea is for an artist. Paintings by our friend Lindsey are hanging there throughout the month of August. If you're in Houston, go by and check them out (corner of Woodhead and Fairview in Montrose). Also, check out Té's web site for information about this aesthetically pleasing, environmentally conscious tea house. I've been Tweeting back and forth with them, and now that they've assured me they have free wifi, I can't think of a more tranquil spot to take my laptop and get some writing done. I've always enjoyed writing in public places with good energy. Back in the day, the wonderful bookstore Crossroads was my chosen location--many scenes from It Had to Be You were written there. I've never really found a permanent home since Crossroads closed, so I'm looking forward to seeing if Té may be it.

If you'd like to see some shots of Lindsey's work (I wish I could buy ALL of those paintings!) and the eighty-plus art lovers who were there Thursday night, check out my flickr set. It was nice to reconnect with some friends (Hey, Kathy!), plus Lindsey introduced Tim and me to a couple of TJB readers, always a pleasant experience.
