I’ve already neglected this blog🌪
But how about this! KREWE of TRADITION
What’s old is new again 💜💚💛
My favorite thing about Mardi Gras is the communal creative spirit it conjures. In New Orleans and most of South Louisiana there’s an air of frenzied energy around. It usually (for me) starts right around the beginning of the New Year and then, depending on how early or late Mardi Gras falls, builds up steam until Mardi Gras day in February or March. It’s such a delight to build costumes, headpieces and throws for the simple purpose of sharing wonder and joy.
Yesterday I remembered that almost every New Year’s day in the last decade or so I rebooted my blog. For whatever reason I tend towards removing said blog somewhere around Summer, but the idea of putting it up for a time is compelling.
Though I’ve shuffled my professional titles a bit in recent years, art making and appreciation remain a driving force in my work. Since August 2016 I’ve worked as a full time preschool educator in a Reggio-inspired school here in New Orleans. I’m also teaching children’s Yoga classes and continuing to explore art making (mostly for myself and my home.).
Maybe this year I’ll focus more on interactive blogging? Wishing you all the best, happy 2019.
