The Inky Art of Illusion

Illusory works of art have a curious fascination. They represent a triumph of art over reality. They are illogic masquerading as logic. These are some of the first optical illusion photos taken of and by my Dad in the 60’s. There were lots more taken of us over the years! We LOVED when he would… Continue reading The Inky Art of Illusion

Where The Wild Things Are!

About a month ago, I wrote this post Yes, I Ride Like a Girl!  about the “Adventures of Wendy and Sheri”. It’s been 8 weeks and we’re still riding and hiking!

Ice cream, sun lotion and a “time out” chair with an umbrella! 

I’m a Louisiana girl, born and raised. Though I did not grow up in south Louisiana, my family’s Cajun roots are firmly established there. My grandfather grew up in St. Martinville and the rich, colorful Cajun culture is a short hop and jump away.

Laissez les Bon Temps Roulez!

This weekend will be the BIG party weekend for Louisiana Mardi Gras! We moved to New Orleans in 1974 when my dad started dental school at LSUSD. Four years later we were seasoned revelers and rarely missed a Mardi Gras. We had some good times in N’awlins! Day parades were an all day affair. Dad would make sandwiches… Continue reading Laissez les Bon Temps Roulez!
