I Wish I Were in New Orleans
Tom Waits has one of the most unique voices on the planet. He has the soul of an artist, and the look of an ex con. If you haven't ever heard of him or seen him in concert, YouTube the man, get comfortable, take your shoes off, and prepare yourself for one of the wildest musical roller coaster rides of your life. While you're at it, you may enjoy textile artist Chris Roberts-Antieu's A Love Letter to Tom Waits.
I am thinking of New Orleans today because I'm headed to the Gem Faire in a few minutes to sort through a football sized room filled with bead from the world over.
