James Gilbert: Warnings and Instructions show at the Dallas Contemporary...

Matt and I had a good time going through this show, taking photos...
it was the sight of a plane crash and there were rescue boats and life jackets and tv images of water...pretty cool and extensive instillation.

Henry with our yummy Pasta Salads...

...made by his mommy! thanks court!

fun night on the trolley...

matt's sister, Keli, just got in town and so we hit the town...
started at West Village with Taco Diner for dinner, followed by the ever-faithful P I N K B E R R Y
and then we hopped on the old-timey trolley ride that looped us into the arts center of downtown and back to West Village. it was actually a blast. We made friends with Charles, the trolley conductor, he gave us ALL SORTS of tips and insider info, along the way. He was very cut and dry and we got a kick out of it...
told us Oprah stayed at the new Ritz, while she was here for the State Fair. told us that on Wed. nights, the Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa is 1/2 off... told us that on Sunday nights if you have dinner at Breadwinners, they offer free dessert! oh and that building downtown, with the curved hole in it, offers free elevator rides up to the top on weekdays from 9-5, for a great city skyline view!
Thanks Charles.

Holi 2010 | the Festival of Colors

These awesome colorful photos came from the traditional
"Festival of Colours" celebrated in India.

I remember even seeing this aired in an episode of the Amazing Race, a couple seasons ago. While the contestants were in India, they had to run through these festivities and retrieve some flag, close to impossible while getting smothered with pigments!
Most of these pictures were pulled from my friend, Nick Ostermann's, church website, The Rooted Church, in Fort Worth.
There, he explains how the people of India, or other countries, with large Hindu populations: celebrate Holi. It is their way of welcoming spring, as the triumph of good over evil; where they enthusiastically drop their inhibitions, and chase each other in temples and through the streets, playfully splashing colorful paints, pigments, and water on each other. Some images show children in vats of tomato pulp?

Anyways their point, i think, was to show their enthusiasm and commitment to this tradition and then challenges us to be able to celebrate JESUS with this much joy.
check out these images!
