Physically I’m back from West Texas but mentally I’m still dusty. I’m actually IN Texas again, but this time on the opposite side. Houston to be precise, a city that has REALLY shocked me in a good way. I’ve had little experience with this place, and only knew an old version combined with stereotype and stigma. I was wrong. The most diverse city in the country and one that is just plain happening. So much local action here, and bathed in Texas hospitality. Notice I didn’t say “perfect.” No such place I’ve yet found but Houston is on to something.
But I’ll be back in West Texas soon I fear. Just too much to see.
