had a dollar for every time in the past 27 years someone told me how much Id done for the commu nity by creating the theatre Sometimes I wish I could live up to that noble unselfish pic its not true I did it for me And anger preceded the selfishness Twentyeight years ago it was decided at City Hall to tear down a wonderful threewing outdoor stage in Landa Park because it had fallen into disuse and disrepair It was called Peninsula Play house and it needed rewiring and a high enclo sure built around it to prevent vandalism True it would have cost a goodly amount to do that even 28 years ago but very close to the same i ahiount was spent to tear it down and raze the seating risers that time the still small voice had made Iit plain what the Self wanted to do with my life so you can imagine that I was not a I happy camper But Id learned by that time that anger can be put to good use by taking its energy and investing it in positive efforts And though producing good theatre is as necessary to me as breathing I con fess that the entertainment inspiration and enlightenment it brings to thousands of others keeps my happiness quotient very high Another selfish act if His them He didnt even check with the Downtown Association or the Main Street direc tor to see if they thought it would add to the attraction of downtown No Wayne Rahe plant ed and nurtured his bougainvillea and hibiscus right on the front sidewalk of the RaheWright building next door to Langston House for all the world to see And its a wonder we dont THE ART OF THE MATTER have traffic jams even accidents driving down Seguin Ave and being met with such a riot of breathtaking colors Thats exactly what those blossoms you gasp from the sheer beauty of them I stopped to chat with him the other day when I saw him out there watering his beautiful chil and thanked him for all of us for bright ening our He said he was glad if it did that but hed cultivated the flowers because he loved them for him self We reap the benefit though Thanks Wayne Artists are like that As sure as you live if you listen to the beau tiful singing of Mary Beth Smith or Cathy Clark you can be certain that although they hope their voic es please you theyre singing because it gives them joy And the Symphony musicians though they expect to be paid couldnt create the glorious sounds they do if they didnt love doing it Ask Pat Deltz or Elaine Felder or Sarah Wetz or Grant Lathe or Jack Price if they paint for anyone but themselves Selfish every one of them And were blessed by their need to express themselves artistically It takes a certain degree of courage to do that you know To take the eminently wise Joseph Campbells advice to Follow your bliss You will put yourself on a kind of track thats been there all the while waiting for you and youll find the life you ought to be Hying is the one you are I know the difference Youll find that some dictionaries disagree on the definition of selfishness a few putting a moral spin on the word I like the way old Mr Webster put it Pertaining to concern for one self Hey thats not a bad thing But just so you know that know the difference between self ishness and selfishness I promise that if theres only one piece of pizza left on the plate Ill go halfsies with you What about you What wonderful thing have you been wanti ng to create Have you been holding back because theres not enough time or you couldnt possibly be good at Just do it Be selfish and express the wonder and beauty inside you And well all benefit Elizabeth Elliott is a guest columnist

dream cometrue tale from the likes of Steven Spielberg Take a smalltown girl daughter of a crop duster graduate from a little high school class of 30plus Place her in a family of successful local and regional musi cians that never thought of her as a candidate to join Walker their musical ranks Let the years click by like the rail breaks of a trains tracks until she is 21 Her single experience as a support vocalist with a popular New Braunfels countrywestern band lasted a mere cou ple of months Six years followed where she worked with the mentally challenged and eventually married an ambitious but yet to be realized successful salesman Together they pledged to fulfill her life long dream On May 21 1994 Carlene held her first full rehearsal with the band she would perform with for the next year Her first booking was within 20 days Before her band was 60 days old she was playing the eminent Leon Springs Dancehall Her third month found her before television cameras filming her part in a Paragon Cable special Seen by a local talent scout she was offered a national tour Her first anniversary as Carlene Walker the Coun try Singer was celebrated assembling a road band in preparation for her Aug 15 departure on her first outofstate tour Carlene is the epitome of the modern female country act A combination of rich vocals and ton ic stage presence her good looks and countrygirl charm make for a live per formance more characteristic of a sea soned and doubledigit roadexperienced singer rather than an upstart and a relative unknown Other entertainment at the Comal Corral will
