Predicting the future

Last weekend, while on vacation in New Orleans, we walked around Jackson Square. The space surrounding the square was filled with artists displaying their wares, people drawing caricatures, and fortunetellers.

Today’s the big day! In just a few hours, we head out on the long drive to Mississippi. We’ll stop halfway and spend the night just South of Nashville because neither of us is big on long drives. I look forward to the journey, but I get a little choked up every time I think …
