Oh by the way, MERRY CHRISTMAS! I have been in Brownsville for a week now and I have realize how much I need my family and how much I need this place. This past tuesday, Elda, Marlene, Frank and I drove around Brownsville and visited two museums, C&C wings (which had good buffalo wings that we all gobbled down quickly) and then to this new cafe downtown called "Greg's Palette" which just rocked! Turns out it is owned by my friend Giana's uncle. I so miss that Brownsville is small feeling. I love feeling those "It's a small world after all" feeling and Brownsville really strached the limit on that feeling. I met someone from Brownsville who was close with my friend Letty in Castiglione, Italy! I miss Brownsville and yeah at first I was bored with my limited choices in recreeational activities but things are changinga and diversifying and I want to be a part of the evolutionof Brownsville and make sure that which is authenic and precious about Brownsville remains an important facet of the future of Brownsville.
Ok, I am going to bed and to play with my niece a bit. Merry Christmas again!

Finals weeks are coming up and so far, everything is consumed in tedious logistics and not in art work. Or if it's in art, then it in dreadful ceramics which I am no good at. The good news on the horizon is that I have a meeting with the finance coordinator of the UT-Austin Art Department on Friday. My friend Frank and I have submitted a proposal about starting an Arts Reach Program in Brownsville for the Spring. So far our proposal has more of a community art bent and we want to go into the community to raise awareness about Brownsville identity and history. It's like Edward T. Hall said "A culture knows the least of its own people." and if I had to put Brownsville in a nutshell then that quote would be the nut, or would it be the shell? Anyways, we have many things in mind, such as creating installations in the mall, making comic books and creating flash mobs. This blog is a protoype of the eventual blog I want to make to stir the creative and artistic juices of Brownsville, Texas, and mostly flash mobs are usually promoted by blogs such as this one. Also check out this site that is specifically dedicated to recent flashmobs in Austin, Texas. Till laters then!
