This art is on the side of one of the Austin Public Library branches in East Austin. I found it by chance when I stopped to take word photos from another sculpture out front, and I love it. I have it as the screen saver on my computer at work, and I have a framed photo of it in my kitchen.

This is my sign off to this summer’s blog – the future is a blank page, what will you write on it?

    Hi Vija,
    Thanks again for sharing your trip. You give a real sense of being there. Here’s something I wrote this spring, maybe Cat showed it to you.

    Easter/Passover Weekend in Tunisia:

    About 30 years ago I was in a small Tunisian coastal town. On Friday I
    thought I would get some fresh bread for the Holiday weekend. When I
    got to the pita bakery, it was closed. It was owned by a Muslim and
    Friday is their Holy day… I thought things would be better for me if I
    got a good luck Hand of Fatima charm like the locals wore. So the next
    day, Saturday, I went to the souk market to the jewelry maker. It was
    also closed. It was owned by a Jew and Saturday is their Holy day…
    Then I realized I didn’t have any more local currency. So the next
    day, Sunday, I went to the bank to cash a traveler’s check. It was
    also closed. It was owned by foreign Christians and Sunday is their
    Holy day…

    Peace Shalom Sal-am
