The Journey Continues: My last column

The column, The Journey Continues, celebrates six years this month. I have written about equality, trust, respect, service to the Nation, national holidays, people, places — but always with a Biblical reference. I have had the privilege of interviewing a variety of folks, both well-known and unknown to the general readership. I always have asked them to share their favorite verse (life verse) from the Bible.

Muralist Robert R. Jones shows new exhibit ‘Walking in My Shoes’

Many San Marcos locals are familiar with the large diversity mural that was unveiled on Jan. 16, 2021, off the corner of LBJ Dr. and Martin Luther King Dr. near downtown San Marcos. The artist of the mural, Robert R. Jones, is set to unveil a new exhibit of original works at the San Marcos Art Center starting April 6-30. While the diversity mural, titled “Celebrate Diversity: Our Common Thread,” was the largest piece Jones has created, totaling at 16 panels and 500 hours of work, Jones’ new exhibit, “Walking in My Shoes” will show a series of paintings and prints reflecting on the experiences of the artist’s life.

Diamond Snow Euphorbia: A garden game changer

Diamond Snow has dramatically changed how we look at euphorbias or that not-so-glamorous common name of spurge. We all fell madly in love with its sibling Diamond Frost and subsequently gave it hundreds of awards in university trials. Diamond Snow, however, is a game changer.
