...her anticipated confession
- New Orleans, Beyond the Pale
- September 11
- The gypsies ran off without me.
I'm leaving my old bio beneath this, but here is what's new:
I've been documenting the Occupy Movement in New Orleans for over a year and and am now accompanied by a male Chihuahua named Zooey.
That is all.
I crave junk shops, dying shore towns, and odd roadside attractions, love a strong dose of Déjà us and am learning to enjoy insomnia.
I’m a writer and collage artist who teaches freshman composition courses at seemingly random online universities, and I try to balance this by getting paper cuts and only playing scrabble with real wooden pieces.
In the flesh, I spend my time looking for my keys, always accompanied by a long-haired Chihuahua named Guadalupe.
I also take care of the 50 or so dolls that I found when Katrina's waters receded. They do not all have names yet.

I forgot I had a blog on here, but I've been writing about social justice issues in New Orleans and am going to start updating this blog again. So much has changed since I used this blog years ago.
The Sacred Shrine of Jon Bon Jovi NOLA has always had deep connection with social justice issues. Many do not know that the one reason the shrine was started was as a response to the New Orleans Jazz Fest Clean Zone… Read full post »

The St Roch Tavern is one of the New Orleans bars being targeted by what's been described as an attack on live music. Local writer Sam Jasper does an excellent job describing the issue in his blog post Between St. Roch and a Hard Place.

"There are no boundaries online. I won't teach [College Writing] online because there are not any boundaries," my friend exclaimed last week.

I hold an M.F.A. in Creative Writing and am therefore qualified to:
1. Teach Composition I
2. Only pay the interest on my student loans
3. Take criticism.
