gumbo z'herbes

er, not quite.
more like windfall gumbo 
[minus the roux and the trinity and the rest of the usual suspects]
 it smells quite fragrant but
i'm not planning on eating it

if you're curious about what might be going on in the image
and you happen to be in New Orleans next week
you may like to swing by the Joan Mitchell Center, 2275 Bayou Road
where i shall be telling stories and showing pictures [and also some work]
on Thursday November 29 @ 6pm

in the meantime you might also like to visit with Ted Kooser, Poet Laureate
and listen to him read some of his beautiful poems


  1. Wishing you a well attended talk, anyone who attends is in for a grand evening!

  2. Thanks for the link, India. I've just spent a while reading poetry and listening to Ted Kooser.
    "....a reedy whinny
    from a bird no bigger than a heart ...."
    I can hear it and see it so clearly.
    All the best for your story telling evening.

  3. i would come, you know, if i could, and it would be the BEST birthday treat!

  4. I wish I was going to be in New Orleans then 'cause I'd love to be at the talk.
