I'm receiving some questions from our new friends in Orleans, France, and I'm about to send them a link to my original blog, which is the best document that exists about the history of the founding of the krewe. I am so heartened to see that in November of 2008 I mention the Orleans Joan of Arc parade as the primary inspiration, and that my dreams have come full circle ten years later with the creators and producers of the Orlean parade walking in ours...wow.
Thank you to everyone who has ever walked with us, shared king cake with us, held a candle for us, watched us, wrote to us, praised us, send us good vibes, promoted us, sent us a check..there are very very many of you. and it all started w/ my little blog.
You forget your own history, and it's amazing to look back and see that your vision is intact. It's like when you read your college journal and you realize you are pretty much the same person, and even continue to repeat phrases you said then...When you stay true to your core, you can't go wrong. Authenticity and sincerity matters the most in all endeavors.
