Fat Tuesday

Nearly two years after Hurricane Katrina, the city of New Orleans continues its struggle to regain its feet.  They aren’t just fighting the wind and water damage to their homes and businessess, but their insurance companies mardi-gras-one.jpgthat won’t pay up, the federal government who won’t pay up and the criminals who manage to survive anything like roaches.  But with all that, the Mardi Gras parades hit the streets like they have for years.  I loved this comment from an organizer:  When asked why the parades recovered so quickly when everything else in the city is limping along, an organizer said “the parades are managed by people instead of government”.

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
