Paradise redefined

Paradise (Old East Iranian: pairidaeza) is a place in which existence is positive, harmonious and timeless.

Key to any gathering are the who, when and where.

Thanksgiving Day, we were three for three.

Where: Bayou St. John in New Orleans [read: positive]

When: A gorgeous November afternoon [read: timeless]

Who: Free spirits who love good food, great music, poetry and laughter, and wine and each other [read: harmonious]

An Egyptian couple strolled by the festivities, and the man said, “This is a great place!”

    Is that you with the pixie haircut? Whoever it is, it looks good. (My hair is finally growing after the chemo! I’m beginning to look more like the me I remembered when I glance into a mirror.)

    Yes I cut my hair all off – it was just too high maintenance for a 52 year old mom with her hands in too many things!
