New Orleans Girls Always Come Back

"She is a New Orleans girl and New Orleans girls never live anywhere else and even if they do, they always come back. That's just the way it is. To hell with no house, no car, no job, no prospects. This is where she belongs. And her mama lives here. End of discussion." -Chris Rose, The Times-Picayune

"Don't be the person who is out there looking for a job. Be the person who is out there doing something interesting."

I Was Here

I am so lucky to have lived in this city when the Saints won the Superbowl for the first time in their 43 year history. The electricity of excitement and sense of community was incredible.


Movie Sets Inspire

Found this list of flicks that designers have recommended in "House Beautiful" magazine that inspire interior design. I want to do a study and watch them all.

features a great painting studio and sexy pool

features a ravishing shopping salon

features rich green English interior

features great pavilion to enjoy music and moonlight

features chic fireplace, glamorous bedroom, and kitchen banquette

features Venetian villas and breathe-taking Palladian salon

features lovely study with enormous fireplace

features Castle Howard, a fanciful English country house

features English-style mansion

features old world and super modern Roman palazzo

and one of my personal favorites for graphics used with sets...

So your creative assignment of the week is to watch one of these movies and let me know what you think. I'll be watching them too to do the same.

Essential Mardi Gras CD

Got this in just in time for Mardi Gras. Now I can "second line" and "mambo" properly!

Dream of Flying

when i was growing up
i often dreamt that
i could fly

i recently had this dream again
it brought back fond memories

Photo By: mattyp 

i looked up the meaning

"liberation; letting go"

i'd like to think these feelings prompted the dream
but it may have more to do with 
a sky diving video that
i had watched that day
