It's Mardi Gras Time!
This week is the 2006 New Orleans Mardi Gras so here are a few tunes to get you in the mood (if you're there) or the Spirit (if you're not there). Many New Orleans residents are making plans for Mardi Gras celebrations in other parts of the US this week, and I was thinking about that. Being uprooted and having to start fresh, or wait for the chance to get back home. Celebrations of Life like the Mardi Gras are like the old Festivals, connecting us back to our community, and to Our Land, our Home. Without pretence, and without undue seriousness, and though I know there will be many moments of reflection this week, it is a time to Shake It Up and Enjoy!
So without further ado, Professor Longhair:
Buy It! From New Orleans.
