Hello to all the readers and bloggers and friends of Waylon’s out there. I am happy to join your ranks. I’m a journalist in Boulder, have written a couple of books, and plan on blogging once week.
Two items for first blog:
1. My water heater went out: flooded kitchen. This was good, as it forced me to toss out my old rug. Underneath was 1950s tiled kitchen floor, much nicer. And I found a local builder, Kim, who is putting in a propane tankless water heater. This is the way to go: on-demand, so water is heated only when needed—and, it’s half the price of regular water heaters.
2. I also have a big interest in art, having come from a family of artists. My next book focuses on mindful art. For any art lovers out there who live in the area, Rembrandt Yard in Boulder is having an opening tonight of new Cuban art. The show is called “La Mirada Posible.” Nine Cuban artists are represented in the show, from Jose L. Hernandez and Armando Torres, who are collected in Europe, to recent graduates. The work ranges from post-modern, to abstract, to surrealistic to naif and “primitivo.”
