We got back this afternoon from our weekend escape to St. Francisville.  Sitting on the front porch of the Printer’s Cottage B&B Friday night inspired the sentiment below.


A front porch swing on a summer night down south provides a front row seat for nature’s symphonic best.

to the serenade
of a mass choir
of noisy crickets
from the Bayou Sara bottom below,
chirping the Friday night song
of the Felicianas.
Vacation is the natural state of man.
