The seasons are changing. The trees where I live are lovely – deep reds, brilliant orange, bright yellows.  Along with the changing of the season, the directorship of the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) is also changing.

Everyone has their own definition and perception of beauty; as the saying goes it is in the eye of the beholder. The same could be said for art. What one person looks at and calls graffiti another could look at and call a masterpiece. That is the great thing about art. It can be something completely different for everybody. It is also something that can happen anywhere...

Cell phones. Computers. Monitors. Tablets. iPads. TVs. These are wonderful inventions used in businesses and personal use all over the world.
