Today I received an email from a friend in New York: "What's the name of that amazing culinary antiques shop in New Orleans again?" Lucullus. And this evening artist Amanda Talley sent me a quick but enchanting look at her NOLA courtyard dusted with snow. (The lines of some of these native plants are echoed in her work.) So tonight I'm listening to Louis Armstrong's Christmas in New Orleans and Cool Yule. Just wish I had a warm slice of chocolate-pecan pie.
