must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be
ultimately at peace with himself. What one can
be, one must be." Abrahan Maslow
I was down in New Orleans a couple of weeks
ago, and promised to post a couple of the pics of
some of the characters I encountered. Well, here
are 3: one of the street artists, a very accomplished
architectural water colorist; one of the street musicians
and his clarinet; and the bottom one is a combination
artist and musician...that instrument is a work of art,
a collage of sorts...and he made great music on it as well.
There are always a lot of interesting folks around
Jackson Square. I encourage any of you who love to travel,
to make New Orleans a destination. It is trying very
hard to recover from the assorted devastation, and could
use every tourist dollar.
If you need some recommendations, I would
gladly share some travel tips.
