Every year at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, we listen for “the buzzword” of the conference – something we hear over and over. One year it was “authenticity,” another year, “transparency.” This year it was “storytelling,” which resonated because that’s what we’re about here at The Buzz. This month, as always, our neighbors share their fascinating stories. In Deborah Lynn Blumberg’s Art in Exile: Miriam Murphy’s treasures, you’ll read about art that survived the Holocaust and lives today in a Houston home, thanks to the dedication of a daughter. In The Road Much Taken: The history and future of Loop 610 by Cheryl Ursin, you’ll get a look at the “then and now” of construction on I-610, which will impact us for years. In Alcohol and Young Adults: Drinking through “the quarter-life crisis” by Cheryl Ursin, you’ll hear about what remains the most commonly abused substance. And, on a lighter note, in Jennifer Oakley’s In Bloom: The art of arranging flowers, you can find tips for creating floral designs. We want to hear your stories, too! [email protected]
