Clarksville Kindness Rocks project

 

New art program lets kindness rock Clarksville

Clarksville Arts and Heritage Development CouncilClarksville, TN – Clarksville‘s children, along with a fair number of adults, are adding to the city’s public art inventory—one rock at a time.

And they are engaging in random acts of kindness as they offer others the joy of a chance rock discovery.

In a trend that is sweeping the nation, Clarksvillians are painting rocks—big rocks, little rocks, smooth rocks, backyard rocks—and hiding them around town for others to find, keep, re-hide, or substitute with a painted rock of their own.

Rita Arancibia, founder of Arts for Hearts, is harnessing this movement in that organization’s Clarksville Kindness Rocks project to promote random acts of kindness using art as a creative way to touch people.

Clarksville’s Finest recently joined the Clarksville Kindness Rocks program sponsored by Arts for Hearts, a program under the umbrella of Clarksville-Montgomery County Arts and Heritage Development Council.

Dodging the Roadkill: Saltgrass Steakhouse

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I traveled to Colorado recently and after a couple of hard days of riding, I was yearning for a good steak.  The Saltgrass Steak House was just down the road from where I was staying, so I had to give it a try. 

They refer to themselves as “the original Texas Steakhouse” and after slicing into my rib-eye, I could understand. 

Their story dates back to the 1800’s, according to their website, when millions of Longhorns roamed freely throughout Texas.  With the taste for beef becoming a newfound favorite in the North, Texas ranchers prospered as never before.

Dodging the Roadkill: Colorado

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I have always wanted to take a trip out West.  This year I got my chance when I was invited to join a Tennessee couple who venture here each year.

Stephen and Rosemary Walker are a true motorcycle couple.  They both love to ride, and through a mutual friend, we connected and they invited me to ride along.

It took me two days to arrive in Colorado Springs.  I traveled through Paducah Kentucky, to St. Louis MO, and on to Columbia MO, before a severe thunderstorm caused a 90 minute delay.

After resuming the trip, I made Topeka Kansas for the night.
