I had the great opportunity to visit The Whitney Plantation this weekend. If you are in New Orleans or in the area, please visit. The unique opportunity here is that it is the only museum in the state of Louisiana that tells the story of slavery from the enslaved person's perspective. Many thanks to Tori for her knowledge and the amazing tour. As I sit in my trailer, mentally preparing for today's work, I reflect on the many first person narratives that were on display throughout the property. Story in my heart, I humbly acknowledge the ground and shoulders on which I stand. "Tisn't he who stood and looked on that can tell what slavery is -- 'tis he who endured" - John Little, fugitive slave, 1855

Flashback to one of my favorite meals so far during this extended stay in New Orleans: Cohiba Smoked Scallops and much LIFE served with those Miso Butterscotch Country Biscuits with Sweet Potato Sorghum Butter. Many thanks to Root. We will be back!
