We haven’t been to New Orleans in two years. We are off to boogie down at  the French Quarter Festival, see good friends, eat muffuletta sandwiches from Central Grocery, and beignets from Cafe du Monde for starters. I think it is safe to say, I will return with photos capturing the essence of this great city. Until Monday, I leave you with a colorful capture, and one of a sassy, and I mean move to the end of the limb to get in my face sassy, squirrel.

Zydeco hugs, Margie

I am happy as a clam when I am being creative. Writing for this blog, expressing myself through haiku poetry, exploring nature and life through zen eyes, and dabbling in various art mediums, makes my spirit sing.
