Exploring Vermont by land and canoe. Loving that they don’t have billboards, but do have craft beers!
Along this route, from New Orleans to Memphis , blues, jazz, soul, and gospel has poured and spread out like rain over the flat Mississippi Delta.
New Orleans has flaws, it has wounds and yet it is an oasis of beautiful humans, who make it better and will keep alive the vivacious culture that sets it apart from the rest of the United States.
There is a palpable spirit living it up in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Like any interesting spirit it has layers. It is culture and it is music which have been mixed in with catastrophic geological events staged on a precarious hillside.
