Fat Tuesday and Louisiana

Today is Fat Tuesday and I am not in New Orleans or Breau Bridge.

In thinking about all the celebrations tonight, I find myself reminising about when I met Debbie Flemming Caffery in Louisiana for one of her workshops. It was the first time in my "creative" life that I left home and concentrated only on my art for a full week. It was transformative. There is something very powerful about being able to shed all responsibilites and flow with the muses. I highly recommend it.

I will be marking the day with a Sazerac cocktail accompanied with great cajun and zydeco music.
