Inspirations from Mardis Gras 2010
We just returned from a neighborhood caravan to Mardis Gras. This was one week after the Saints won the Super Bowl so to say "magic was in the air" is a monumental understatement. I love Mardis Gras....and yes I hate crowds and yes it can get crazy but it is simply fantastic. The parades are beautiful and every minute the Crews put into the floats shine. I love the music, the happiness, the colors. the beads, masks and the excitement. I never saw anyone out of control or miserable. I did almost kill myself with a "Voodoo Punch" but it was all self induced. Anyway it is artistically inspirational. Wow. Hates off to those New Orleans folks, they know how to throw a party.
