For a city that prides itself on its history and is known for its ability to seem like a place where time has stood still, sometimes not always for the best,  much has changed architecturally and culturally over the years and the city continues to evolve.

Richmond artist, life-archivist and collector of precious things, Caryl Burtner’s new show, “Missing Richmond: time capsules & relics” opens Friday September 5, 2014. She visits the changes to her city over the last 40 years.  The show is at the Wilton Companies Gallery at University of Richmond, downtown. 626 E. Broad Street and it runs September 5th until December 23rd.

“Missing Richmond” is a part of the 2014-15 Tucker-Boatwright Festival of the Arts.

Included as a part Burtner’s exhibit are a few photos by yours truly from a time long past.

Friday the 13th

Posted in Art, Writers & Writing with tags , on January 13, 2012 by kozmicdogz

The wind is howling this morning blowing winter back in. We have been spared much of the usual harshness so far this year, but it is cold now and will be for a few days. I hear it will warm up again next week, so hope is alive and spring will undoubtedly return this year just like all of the others.

My father always said that the 13th was a lucky day for him because he was born on the 13th. I am not sure if it was a Friday or not, but he was lucky and he was born on the 13th. I will not be avoiding black cats or ladders or any of those other things that are supposed to bring you bad luck. I am looking forward to the weekend, lunch with friends and losing myself in a book or movie and a long nap.
