The W's Culinary Arts Institute kitchen was "styling" on the morning of April 2. From chef station to station, an Easter brunch was coming together and looking good. That's the purpose of a food styling class: to prepare food to look as tempting as possible for photography, video or film.
As the beam from his flashlight fell on the damage, Johnny Johnson's heart sank as he walked through drizzle, debris and darkness toward Hunt School. Just hours earlier, an EF-3 tornado had hit Columbus, leaving its destructive mark on neighborhoods and structures including the school on 20th Street North -- and the R.E. Hunt Museum and Cultural Center housed inside.
Dianna Buder Suratt has never lived in Columbus, but her visit to the city during the 79th annual Spring Pilgrimage felt like coming home. It was also "the best birthday present I could have had," said the Canton, Georgia, resident.

Change tends to come slowly to a venerable 79-year tradition like the Columbus Spring Pilgrimage. But, as with all things, change does come with the passage of time. This year's annual Pilgrimage marks an exit, and an entrance -- a farewell to the tour by one homeowner family, and the beginning of another family's antebellum journey.

Stirred by some internal, infernal clock, I reluctantly opened an eye Monday morning, relieved to see the sky still dark. Foggily judging the time to be about 4:30 a.m., I thankfully figured I had a couple more hours to dream. Reality intruded seemingly five minutes later when the alarm -- set for 6:30 -- sounded off. How could it possibly be time to get up for work?
