THOUGHTS FOR THIS WEEK
Hey GISH PICKS readers! Let’s connect in person! I will be out and about this Saturday, August 11 and would LOVE to meet you. Every second Saturday of the month, I do two very different things: I lead my “Second Saturday Labyrinth Walk” at the Hines Center for Spirituality and Prayer from 9-11am (click here for more information and to register) and I set up an information table at the Children’s Museum of Houston from 2-4pm. Kids accompanied by adults are always welcome at the labyrinth walk, by the way.
For you parents and caregivers reading this: hang on, summer’s not over yet! If you still want to tuck the kiddos safely into a summer camp or two, check out my huge database at www.DayCampsHouston.com and also take a look at my latest camp blast in which I include many drop-in camp programs.
I write about films for GISH AT THE MOVIES so I will occasionally share with you about film screenings I come across. There are two excellent ones (both FREE!) that take place every summer. Christ Church Cathedral hosts a “Justice and Peace Documentary Series” of provocative films in June, July, and August. They are closing it out with the film “13th” next Wednesday, August 15. Get there at 6pm for a FREE DINNER (yes, ‘tis true!) and the screening starts at 6:30pm. The tables are set up so that you can eat and view at the same time.
The second annual film series is at the Jung Center of Houston. “Film and Psychoanalysis” is co-presented with the Houston Psychoanalytic Society in August every year. Films start at 7pm on Thursdays and the event is free. The entire schedule is here and more information about tomorrow’s/tonight’s screening of “The Village” is here.
This week’s VIDEO PICK is a visual tour of Houston – get out there before summer is over and be a tourist in your own town! It’s fun to go places you’ve never been or to see sites with new eyes. For my VIDEO PICKS, I have occasionally been posting my PICKS-ON-WHEELS adventures, but they are on hiatus this summer. So, I’ll be choosing Houston-oriented videos to share with you from the Houston Visitors Bureau and the Heritage Society.
