ARE YOU THERE GLASSTIRE? IT'S ME MARGARET.

UP LIKE TOAST was my pseudo secret blog for the past 2 years that I filled with research, interests, art, openings, reviews and articles, videos, etc. generally all things of interest to me. Just another list in my life of lists. It was a virtual sketchbook of sorts.

Sometimes it allowed comments, most times it did not. I still have no understanding of how to see whom or how many have visited the site, and my name wasn’t officially posted anywhere. What I really enjoyed was the anonymity. The fact that it was something people stumbled on and enjoyed or didn’t… and I never really knew either way. Occasionally close friends would reference something I’d posted as if we’d actually had a conversation. I liked this approach to sharing and tie to my shy girl roots.

Well Glasstire figured out I was behind the posts and invited me to start blogging for them. I’ve hesitantly accepted the challenge hoping to grow past my own comfort zones, create an actual exchange, and to show more people the great things and fabulous community I’ve found in Fort Worth, Dallas, and the state of Texas in general.

MELBA TOAST will be a very dry, crisp and thinly sliced version of UP LIKE TOAST. A favorite category that I will continue to use was something I call “Similar but Different”. A perfect first post I think from old blog to new… Last weekend I gave a tour for the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth's Sunday's with Andy where I quoted from his various relationships, so in that tradition and to start our budding friendship I present: Warhol and Basquiat, Tony and Silvio, Luke and Dragline.

Feel free to watch with soup and salad or top with either melted cheese or pâté. Enjoy!
