    I voted for your essay, and I feel the same way about photography. It is a form of yoga for me. Relaxing, A getaway. I get in my kayak - and the "same things" are always different. Great job.

    Keith, It is honestly hard for me talk right now. I am choked with tears. THIS IS ART. And THIS IS MY HOME. How long has it been that I have seen the mist and sun over the bayou? Too, too long. Those cypress tress and knots? The smell of the marsh, the call of the duck, the pelican, magestic, the nesting Rosette spoonbills, all pink sky fluttering at dusk and dawn, like a tropical paradise, because, indeed, it is? SW LOUISIANA.
    You take me back - waterskiing over the bayou waters - smooth as glass, then choppy, over a gator, watch out for the old cypress stumps, beer, sweet boat drinks, catfish, alligator gar....mosquitos....crabs at the wharf of our duck camp at Big Lake in Cameron Parish, gone now - two storms later. Our beach front land at Holly Beach? Washed away over time.
    Man, you take me there. And this image could surely be the work of God himself, beckoning the lost and lonely soul, Come back to me, come back to me....to Louisiana, that place I left, never to return, that haunts me still in darkness of night, in rain storm here over the Oklahoma plains, in songs and smells along the way, no matter how far away the journey takes me, always, always, back in my mind, Louisiana.
    Viva La Louisiane.
