The Magic of Light

SUNDAY January 23, 2022
“Light tomorrow with today!”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
With shorter days and fewer hours of sunshine this time of year, we look forward to times when the sun encourages us to enjoy the outdoors. Finding encouragement isn’t too hard though. National Seed Swap Day on January 29 is an opportunity to help our neighbors and the environment while focusing on the coming warmer weather.
Exploring one of the region’s state parks or visiting a cozy guest house like the Cabin in the Woods in Van are other activities that encourage use of precious daylight and help us through the darker days of winter.
County Line Magazine offers many ideas for shopping, exploring, and experiencing the Upper East Side of Texas. Check out our JANUARY/ FEBRUARY ISSUE for more inspiration and opportunities or visit our EVENTS and THINGS TO DO sections. — Lisa Tang

Associate art professor Shaun Roberts of Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches recently won first place honors and the people’s choice award in the 2021 World Wide Kitsch (WWK) Competition for his narrative portrait titled “Messenger.”
Though kitsch originated from the German word for trash and commonly refers to items of poor quality or taste, kitsch is now an international movement among painters that imitates the classical style of the European masters. Roberts describes winning the competition a “true honor.” READ MORE.
