Gulf Coast Fall


Gulf Coast. Fall. Florida too. This is one reason why people move down here. Mild autumn and winters. Some flowers die or hibernate. Many do not. You’ve seen these flowers earlier this year during spring. Here they are again in autumn. Apparently, they thrive in cooler weather, which a Gulf Coast summer is not. IContinue reading “Gulf Coast Fall”

Perfect in the Yard


Maybe this photograph is a little too radioactive. In my defense I cannot predict how WordPress will compress my already compressed .jpeg. Many times I over compensate. Don’t we all? Now that a bit of my life is getting back to some kind of normal feeling workflow I have to be very careful not toContinue reading “Perfect in the Yard”

Redemption


Once, long ago, I asked one of my neighbors how to grow tomatoes in the New Orleans climate. The guy was an old Creole man. He was old enough to speak French as a mother tongue. He looked at me and said, “Just plant it and leave it alone. Everything grows here.” He was right.Continue reading “Redemption”

Time Fades Away


The better of me. I went through a battle yesterday. Of course, battles these days don’t mean what they once meant. It was almost eight hours on the phone. By the time that I was done I wasn’t sure if I won or lost. I think that I won. I’ll know in a couple ofContinue reading “Time Fades Away”

This Is Gonna Be Great


Yes. Great. I’ve dreamed of pictures this big on Storyteller. I never thought I’d live to see the day when my dream became reality. It’s sort of my M.O.. I have to be dragged kicking and screaming into some new world. When I get there I grumble. After a time, I think “this isn’t soContinue reading “This Is Gonna Be Great”

Downhill From Everywhere


Yesterday was a day. Did you ever have a day when technology was not your friend? When saved passwords were not saved? When nothing loaded? When the internet was so slow that you had to perform a hard reset? That was yesterday. Let’s hope things go a little better today. Let’s hope people settle down.Continue reading “Downhill From Everywhere”

Once In A While


Seeing the flowers of spring gives me a sense of hope. In order to fulfill hope, we must work hard. All of us. Especially now. What are you doing? What will I do? In New Orleans, the mayor has put out a call for volunteer help. I may do that. A lot of it involvesContinue reading “Once In A While”

Begin Again


So green. So very green. It’s spring down here in the swamp. Most everything is blooming. It’s an awakening after a long winter’s night. Well, something like that. Our winter was mild. There were about three days of cold. The temperature did not drop below freezing. I have no idea what that means for ourContinue reading “Begin Again”
