    Extraordinary detail, Mo, the longer I look the more I find! A wonderful rendition of Rod’s words, with none of the mystery lost.

  2. Love the line . . . I caught a glimpse of beauty’s stocking.

    And thanks for the detail pic . . . I had to look up legba . . . makes the jar of eyes and the touch of red more significant.

  3. You seem to be just plowing a long, cranking them out at breakneck speed. It won’t be long now!

      the good times are rollin’! This is the first edit of three before it will be ready for the printer in September (looking forward to binding the text in black leather covers and red silk headbands) the second and third edits will be mostly subtle movements & variations in the text.

    This is so overwhelming terrific, both drawing and words. Went to New Orleans as a gift for my 59th birthday. Deep magic in this city, wore a yellow feather boa, a gift from husband and could not help but sashay down the streets. The 53 second lead in before Rod sings on Opportunity, well, it made me want to dig out my boa…What happens in New Orleans is the music seen, heard, heard and not seen creeps into your skin, breaths itself in and lodges in that secret place of longing…This feels just like that…there is an essence here both in words and visual. Simply with this post Mo, you have given us that special New Orleans lagniappe.,
