Spring Is In The Air

May 10, 2005 by

In an unusual turn of events New Orleans is experiencing a season, namely Spring. The cool and pleasant air is indicative of neither the HEAT or the COLD WET that share the year. This must be Spring then, that folk tale of the northlands. Would the foliage around us explode in reds and oranges soon? Not bloody likely, but a nice fancy.

In honor of this unaccustomed period of mild and clement weather I am endeavoring to adopt the theme of growth. A new job, new writing contracts, my looming matrimony, several new websites, and at least forty things that I can’t put my finger on just now. All growth oriented. Springtime in the subtropics. I’m psyched! Humid City will grow and aspire to be, “…a carnival barker’s megaphone aimed at a complacent citizenry.”

With that in mind I am currently working on a weekly schedule of offerings for this space, the Recipe on Wed. will almost certainly continue. In the meantime a purely subjective sampling of what I think is good around town will be seen. (Such as the notices below) Also, in the spirit of The Silver Machine, I am inviting other voices to join me here. Hopefully we will have a nice round of regular features in the near future. Anyone interested in getting involved please email me
