The Joys of Art and Earth

Oxley Nature Center's table with plants that grow easily and naturally in Oklahoma along with many other objects de nature on their table.

Wineries are popping up all over Oklahoma.

Wines in Oklahoma have come a long way.

If you aren't recycling in Tulsa, you should be. They will come to your house and get it for so little money every month. It's not that difficult.

Green tea root beer? Flax bars, sesame bars and more good stuff. All to sample.

Green tea root beer. Pretty good!

Perhaps the "best hair at festival" award.

There are now at least 3 farmer's market every week in mid town Tulsa. These folks represent the Pearl District Market.

A classic beauty near the waterfall in the park.

Global gardens make good things happen.

Kendall Whittier School African Drummers were terrific and obviously enjoyed every moment drumming. These kids know how to have a creative art experience!

The boys find the flowing water and cannot resist.

Wild Birds Unlimited helped educate the public and gave out generous bird seed samples!

Voted in my opinion hardest working soap vendor for the past 2 weeks. She was everywhere and makes great soap and body products. 3P's in a POD, the Pankey girls. Visit her at or you can probably find them at the Cherry Street Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Note her drawing of her dog on her pet products.

Positive energy for art and awareness of the beauty of life and earth makes me feel good.

I had an inspiring talk with a new friend, a like minded supporter and dreamer who realizes the value of art. We talked about the what if''s and dreamed about building an art center. My aching arm disappeared for a bit and I felt the feelings of art in motion. All the arts, music, photography, visual arts, cooking, poetry and writing and more all supported in a historical building in Tulsa. It could happen. It might happen. It is the great thoughts. We will see.

Someone and unfortunately I cannot remember the source, said. "All societies will be judged by their art and science." I wish I could find the source for that quote. If you know, email me.

Also, today there was a celebration of Earth Day in the Pearl District in Centennial Park.
There were lots of tents and several organizations represented. Thanks to my husband always being aware of what is happening in the community, we walked around, tasted wines from Oklahoma wineries, listened to the kids from Kendall Whittier School show off their African drumming skills, and talked with lots of friends. I had to shoot some photos to share from this fun but very windy event. Yes, the white tents were blowing again.

And, we took in a great little movie at the Circle theater called "The Year My Parents Went on Vacation." I highly recommend it. Of course there are subtitles and no car chase scenes.

This week will probably be a telling week. This week, I am told is when Venture properties closes on the purchase of my block. Then? Next? Change.
