Austin City Limits is a public broadcasting specialty and has been for some time now. The show features Texan musicians, country acts and the blues rock styles of Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughn. Stevie Ray has a life size statue on the grounds of the Town Lake hike&bike trail silhouetting the Austin city skyline, remarkably tasteful for this neck of the world and awesomely beautiful for those such as myself who really appreciate the artistry of guitar centric musicians. His death, untimely as it was, solidified him as a true guitar legend. Anyway, back to your comment which brought to fore the thoughts of the tv show. Yes, I am located in the inner limits of Travis county, lone Texas bastion of free-thinkers and liberal politics within the state. Proud of this fact and enjoy the tremors produced from the rumbling of the few jolting the simplemindedness of the many. The sunsets are spectacular here. There are certain spots which accentuate the beauty of an unobscured setting sun here in Austin and my favorite is Mt. Bonnel. In Texas we consider a height of 890ft above sea level a Mount, not a mountain, just a Mount. Silly but effective in getting the gears of the mind to think more precisely within the grey area of geography(I suppose). Eccentric folks dominate the landscape as much as the topography dictates and dominates the attitudes of these eccentric folks. Back to the sunset. I have spent long afternoons atop Mt. Bonnel watching the sun set, downing Pacifico and or Bohemia Mexican beers. People who partake in the smoking of mild strains of marijuana occasionally share their harvest with you and the camraderie of a city which is as unpretentious as any I have ever visited becomes a part of the natural 'flow' of things. Today was one of the most beautiful of afternoons. I spent the hours between 4pm and 7pm in the Bull Creek greenbelt hiking the trails with a purty gal and enjoying a temp of 60F with not a cloud in the sky. Kid, I am pleased to the max you have an Austin sunset gracing your computer screen. Though nothing compares to the actual experience of it you and any of our fellow Brits have an open invitation to visit. And yes, I will keep the resistance of electrical current at the forefront of what I consider hot but cool.
