Living in Color

SUNDAY November 26, 2023

“Mere color can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.”

Oscar Wilde

Often the best experiences happen without a plan. Simply meandering about our day we meet interesting folks, hear good music, see beauty, taste delicious food, and find all our senses fully engaged. That’s kinda what happened when pulling this issue together for you. All the amazing color from one story to the next was not planned — it just happened. Hope you enjoy this soulful journey as much as I do.

— P.A. Geddie

Corsicana: Your Adventure Awaits

It’s no wonder why the TV series “The Story of Art in America” (Prime Video) chose Corsicana for one of their Texas features in Season 3 airing in 2024. The Corsicana show was also the pilot episode shared in a recent worldwide premiere during the International Chelsea Film Festival.

The city’s Arts & Entertainment District is in downtown Corsicana. Hosting theater, music, movies, and other shows are three venues, including The Palace Theatre, a restored 1921 vaudeville house. Galleries and studios showcase the works of local and visiting artists and offer education and performances in dance, theater, improvisation, and creative writing.

One of the town’s most intriguing aspects is its bronze statue tour, a life-sized art exhibit telling stories about the unique individuals who shaped its history. Created by different artists, most of the lifelike sculptures interact with the cityscape: an oil field worker appears to cross a street on his way home, a pastry chef leans over to offer a fruitcake to passersby, a farmer spreads seeds in an outstretched hand, and a pet wolf guards the spot where Lyman T. Davis first served his famous Wolf Brand Chili. READ MORE

Savory Oats Nourish Early Morning Appetites

Oatmeal is a traditional breakfast that many Americans enjoy as a quick, warm meal to start their day. Apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins are typically used to sweeten the otherwise bland oats. Because many have enjoyed their oatmeal with these sweet toppings, savory varieties of this hearty dish are often overlooked. Lauren Wacaser shares her tips for taking a plain bowl of oatmeal to a whole new level of flavor. READ MORE

A Pop of Color: Works by Jeffie Brewer
