Not Much to Write


the beautiful spring weather,
the third annual Refreshments poetry reading in front of the library,
a fine community-orchestra performance,
my dad’s surprise 86th-birthday dinner,
three new community gardeners,

the news out of the Louisiana legislature is so discouraging that I’m not writing. We continue to teach our students, do our research, meet our committees, look for a new LSUE chancellor, and pray for our leaders to wake up to the need for education and hospital funding. Join us. More new taxes, please–at least until a new constitutional convention cleans up the mess.

Microsoft's idea of begonias

Meanwhile: “everything’s on the internet” warning #34987547: Microsoft clip art has this picture of “begonia,” but I’m sure they’re geraniums. Maybe “begonia” is the Spanish word for geranium. (But it’s not.)
