I knew I had a very patriotic image from New Orleans somewhere. A little digging around in the photo files and voila, here it is. Oh, do I miss the energy and excitement of my first visit to the French Quarters of New Orleans. My artistic side will never be the same, that's for sure. It was unleashed and experienced a whole lifestyle so different from anything I had ever seen or heard. So, on this 4th of July, I hope you are enjoying family, friends and fireworks with a whole new level of enjoyment. May you sparkle, boom and be colorful!
