Home, Not Home


Y es. I was taking you through my travels, but soon New Orleans will fade into my rambles. I’d like to say I have mixed emotions about leaving, but I don’t. The city is very broken. We are on pace to have the highest number of murders per capita. That means we’ll have around 350Continue reading “Home, Not Home”

Different


T hese pictures were made earlier in spring. But, it’s hot so I thought publishing something cool would be a a cool idea. See what I did? Pictures? Yeah, there are two. I’ll discuss that next door in the right hand column. You know, I’ll write on the right. Oh God, not again. Summer inContinue reading “Different”

A Lot Of Places


W hat does it mean to travel? It means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Some do it to relax by a pool in some place other than where they live. Some travel to learn. Others go on safaris. Some travel to see famous places. Some travel to eat. Others travelContinue reading “A Lot Of Places”

Then This


R unning errands, I needed a place to park for just a few minutes. So I parked here. I hate to say this, but the sign is meaningless. Unless it is posted by the city or county it has no legal status. Still, normally that doesn’t matter for me. I woudn’t park here. I justContinue reading “Then This”

Road Color


Y esterday’s post was a bit bleak, but it was honest. Authentic, as we say today. We saw an example of it on Thursday night, when the January 6 Committee laid the insurrection at Trump’s feet. And, at his feet it will stay. I’m sure he’ll be hopping mad. Too bad. It was an exerciseContinue reading “Road Color”

Troubles


I started thinking about our world. Normally, I’d like to think I’m positive in general, but not right these days. Our world is a terrible place. There is the elephant in the room, CoVid19 which became political when it was scientific. Even though the numbers are rising at the rate of five times faster thanContinue reading “Troubles”

Will The Circle Be Unbroken?


W ill it? I don’t know. It seems like all of my circles have cracks in them. It’s a fight these days to keep them from breaking apart. I’m resilient — a word that all New Orleanians hate — but sometimes enough is enough. I mourn for all the victims of mass shootings. I mournContinue reading “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?”
