Gold of Assam

I found a sericulture collective in Cooch Behar that raises the elusive and *amazingly* beautiful Muga silk, Antheraea assamensis. They sent me a packet of samples. I’m SO buying some of this stuff as soon as possible.

Sammons Center for the Arts – Sammons Jazz

A brief personal interlude – this is where I work!

It’s an arts center called The Sammons Center for the Arts; it’s in Dallas, on Oak Lawn at Harry Hines. It’s a renovated historic structure, and we provide office and rehearsal space for local performing arts groups.

We have a monthly jazz music series called Sammons Jazz.
