Savannah, Tybee, and Austin, Part 2

After the trip to Tybee, I was home for four days before heading back out to Austin, TX for SXSW. We had a Happiness Bar at the SXSW trade show where WordPress users, or soon-to-be users, could ask us questions about WordPress. It was a great opportunity to meet many creative people working on new and interesting projects. 

For me, it was also my first time in Texas. Prior to this trip, the furthest west I’d been yet was to New Orleans. I spent the first day with Sheri at a co-worker/new friend’s house, Ryan, who was kind enough to take me in even though it was the first time we’d met. (Thank you, thank you!) I absolutely loved my trip to Texas. The food was amazing, the state itself is beautiful, and I loved meeting everyone there. I also got the chance to see a friend of mine perform and “heard” the Snow tha Product show outside of La Zona Rosa, even though I didn’t quite make it in. I cannot wait to go back.

    I hadn’t known the story of Conrad Aiken’s tombstone and still wouldn’t if not for your caption. Ran across a thing of his as a kid whose first line was “Music I heard with you was more than music” (I forget the title) that has stuck with me ever since.

      That’s awesome 🙂 My mother and I went to Bonaventure when I was 14 (and just getting interested in poetry). I took a picture of “Give my love to the world” from his tombstone and always thought it was very pretty.
