"How many holes you got in your head?"



I'm quoting the late, great, guitarist/banjoist, writer/historian, storyteller and great wit – Daniel Moses Barker. (13 January 1909–13 March 1994) If you are not hip to Danny Barker then it is my great honor and pleasure to place him in your consciousness. Indeed, my storytelling style, and motivation, is very much influenced by this man and his legacy. I never met him, but when Danny entered my consciousness just over ten years ago, as New… Continue

It's “Happy Monday” in New Orleans. “I survived” is a rather significant summation for a Sunday. Maybe not just any Sunday, since not just on any Sunday does a 152 year old Roman Catholic Church hold its last Mass service. The Archdiocese of New Orleans is deafly going forward with a plan to close and/or merge 33 churches in its jurisdiction – some of which are viable and, on higher ground. I'm speaking, that is, about the naturally elevated sliver along the Mississippi. I suppose that I'm… Continue

To be, or not to be... Data is the question. Sure, I would reinvent myself as an Shakespearian actor. It took me a while, but I got hip to this cat. Thank you, Bill.

I voted today. I lent my voice, in this constitutional republic known as America to the cause of future peace and understanding among the peoples of the world. I counted my opinion as part of many who desire to live their lives free from tyranny and oppression. I cast my perspective upon a society where I see the possibility of unity and diversity, cooperation and tolerance. That's a lot of hope to pin on a political campaign, even this one. Nevertheless...
