see that dark lump on the bench?
that's my sax case.
i blew some notes in the space
for my friends in New Orleans
wishing they were a bit closer.
my residency in Louisiana was initiated by
the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts
and supported by the Joan Mitchell Center
again i'd like to thank
Nikki Jackson [for having the idea in the first place] [and for just being]
and her colleagues at NOCCA for welcoming me
Carolyn Somers, Director of the Joan Mitchell Foundation
for letting me live there
Gia and Kenese
and all the others who made my stay so very wonderful.
[dang, i should have been wearing a fabulous frock to say all that]
