Women March on Nashville

Same day our legislators were sworn in the Women March on Nashville also convened.  Freezing cold weather didn't stop supporters and neither did the State Troopers.  Protest chants and rally calls moved up the Capital steps and right to the door of the General Assembly.

Making a Livin' in NOLA

I saw lots of money exchanging hands this last visit to New Orleans.  I know I passed a few bucks along my way.  The city was vibrant, friendly and workin' it.

Krispy Kreme

My father claimed rising before the sun was ingrained in him while in the army.  Those mornings I heard him stirring I felt so safe and comfortable, knowing all was in order.  Sometimes I’d get up along with him.  If it were Saturday or Sunday we’d go to Krispy Kreme on West End and sit bellied up to the counter eating our plain cakes in silence.  We’d watch the glazed doughnuts behind the plate glass move slowly along the conveyor belt.  Returning home with our assortment of doughnuts for the rest of the family who were only now beginning to stir was a perfect finishing touch to the morning.  It is my special memory.  And even today I feel the soul of my father in the 6 AM hour.
