South Louisiana 2018: Between the Old and the New

Black-eyed peas for New Year's Eve at Agnes', Opelousas, Louisiana. December 2018.

Yeah, OK, so we had the black-eyed peas on the last day of the old year instead of the first day of the new. But our kind hostess, Agnes, is from France, and it was already the new year in France.

  • Good friends
  • Good health
  • Joyful experience of dance
  • Adolescent dreams come true

  • Shelter, food, clothing

In this December 2018, I am between the old and new year, and also between my Missouri Year and my upcoming Tucson Year.
