Blending In

I have always loved my little solo day trips to New Orleans.

I’ve been feeling somewhat uninspired in the writing department lately, so I decided to see if a change of scenery would work a little magic…or if not full-blown magic, at least clear my head and spark some new ideas. I jumped in my Jeep and headed to the lakefront and, you know, it’s pretty hard […]
