There’s something amazing about being in a new city. Even when you’re there for work, getting out to explore a new city is such an invigorating experience. Being in New Orleans for the past week was incredible. I went into the experience feeling a little anxious and a little overwhelmed at the prospect of spending a week with coworkers, at a convention, over 1000 miles from home. But, you know me, I adjust pretty quickly.
If you ever make it to New Orleans, I implore you to venture outside of Bourbon St. and wander down to Frenchmen St. So much music and life, it’s almost overwhelming. Almost. It also seems apropos that while, in New Orleans, I befriended a coworker’s sister, who just happens to be a jazz singer. With a name like Donna Singer, you have to check her out.
