Something is so magical about having a central meeting place for a community. The Kansas City Union Station seems to be exactly that, a meeting place where it’s like the old days, everyone smiles and waves and would tip their wide brimmed hat…if this was still the 1940’s. You could stop in here to read the paper, write a letter or just sit back and take life in. Or…the 95 feet high ceiling, enormous chandeliers and the spectacular grand arch are something to marvel at as well!
Today you can stop in for more than lunch and shops, there are also exhibits, a planeterium, a Theater District and an interactive Science city…wheew, I think I got most if it! Or catch the Amtrak to a city to explore! All aborad!!

With a glass rod in hand that was 9mm in diameter, George placed it in the scorching fire torch and started to shape a horse figurine. He says anything that has to do with wildlife are his favorite projects to create.
The details on the wild horse were so meticulous. The way he could make the hair on the mane look so alive with only one tool, the torch and his creativity astounded me.
In less than ten minutes the horse was completed and left on the table for me to admire. I still couldn’t wrap my head around the way he was able to work the magic into the horse. All I do know is George Hiney is on fire!
