The Big Easy

Well, I left work today with quite a feeling of well-being, seeing how I got all my work done so that I could safely go on vacation to New Orleans tomorrow (Thursday). I'm not much of a traveler, and I don't think I realized that there would be a palpable sense of relief that I will be truly "away from it all," off the hook, etc... it was a good feeling, actually. I guess I have to actually GO somewhere more often. It's been quite some time. Most of my vacations are spent at home resting and doing whatever the hell I want to do... but I think I'm realizing that I also still think a lot about work when I have a few days at home yawning ahead of me.

So yeah, basking in that glow of well-being I did some errands and came home. Honestly I've done less preparation than I should have, having decided maybe I should load a bunch of my CDs onto my new computer so to choose favorite songs to put on my iPod Shuffle. (I guess that kind of is packing for the trip -- packing music that is.) Have I mentioned that now that I have this Shuffle I want a full-grown iPod now? For God's sake, would someone pay me for one of my short stories, about $400 would be nice. ;)

Anyway, since it's a fairly whirlwind trip, I don't think there's that much preparation really left other than throwing a few more items into bags, remembering a journal and my digital camera. I'll catch you guys on the flip side!

Thanks for reading,

Cool! Have fun and be safe. Drink one of those liquor slurpees for me. And watch out for the voodoo. ;)

Thanks guys! New Orleans was wonderful... and yeah, Hebdomeros, I wanted to see Poppy Z but didn't... saw that she's doing a book signing there in April, ah well... well I had a blast but I am going to go to bed soon. I am exhausted! Thanks again...

Traveling lights up a mysterious candle within. Looking forward to reading your luminance and shadows.

Hi Patina,

Thanks... I jotted down some notes but I am quite certain I didn't convey the magic that is in New Orleans. Thanks for coming by!
