Publication

A letter to the editor, three book reviews, and a column in the monthly church newsletter (although there are not many editorial barriers for the the last one) up until today they composed all the times any piece of writing I offered was published.

Yesterday my first ever Carnival season ended with Ash Wednesday. It was an amazing run of 12 or so days. I felt things, did things, and experienced life like never before. On Monday morning something within me clicked and I had to write it down. I submitted it to the local paper, The Times-Picayune, for publication and they actually published it. Tomorrow morning when you, that is if you read the T-P in the morning, you will see this article.

Amazing what this city will do to you.

A truly outstanding article. I plan on showing it to folks here in Lewisburg. Maybe it will help them understand why my wife and I still miss New Orleans so very much.

Larry thanks for your kind words. This is an amazing place and the experience of the parades, especially Sunday was something else. I never thought the day would come when I would be begging for Lent to arrive.
