Lights, Action, Camera -- Paris, Texas style
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This abstract picture by Casey Ressler of downtown Paris is beautiful, bold and artsy. It reminds me that Paris, Texas has much to offer me in the form of artistic beauty, and this weekend was no different, thanks to Paris Community Theater, Paris Downtown Association, Greg Wilson, Judd Payne, Plaza Art Guild, and many, many more folks. (Thanks for sharing, Casey! Take some more!)
Look at these beauties who were on stage in the PCT "Wood" this weekend. I thought the girl with the red cape was Lilly Lewis, but turns out she was Little Red Riding Hood. And those delightful creatures behind her? They were part of the cast in Paris Community Children's Theater production of Little Red Riding Hood, directed by Laura Hutchings. Congrats on a great show, everyone! I'm sure it will be another great show this coming weekend. (Picture courtesy of by Cheri Lewis)
PCT and the Paris Downtown Association also brought us a screening of "Bernie," a quintessential East-Texas film staring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Mathew McConaughey. This showing gave us the beauty of art through laughter, as the audience rolled with all the witty "East Texas-isms." I'm ready to watch it again!
If I had been able to be filled with any more beauty in Paris this weekend, I think I would TURN IN to Paris, Texas. OH! And this is what I just might look like! So Beautiful!
