Eye Candy Friday and New Orleans trip

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. It has been a long couple of weeks and I haven't had much to say. My trip to New Orleans was interesting and created some changes in my life. From a spiritual side of things, big changes came about as a result of my trip. There is so much that happened, I'm not sure what to say.

A lot of it should probably be kept to myself, but what I will say is that my life is different now. I'm back to being pretty much solitary. While I thought that the trip would reinforce my friendships with those I went with, it turns out that it pretty much ended them. One friendship in particular was "put on hold" although it feels more like it was ended than anything else. One thing I learned from this trip is that people really are not always what they seem.

So, enough of the moping, and on to the pictures. I will say, if you ever have an opportunity to go to New Orleans, you should take it. I'm glad I went and wouldn't change that for anything, even if I would change the way it ended.

Above is a photo of Bourbon St. Below is a gate that is an entrance to Jackson Square. I really liked the gate and thought I should take a photo.

Here we have a photo of a guardian on top of the New Orleans Museum of Art. I thought it was pretty cool.

Right above we have a photo that I took in St. Louis Cemetery #1. I loved the tombs and the intricate detail on them and the gates surrounding them. And below is the tomb of Mam'zelle Marie Laveau.

And last we have a picture of the French Quarter and leftover remnants from Mardi Gras.

Well, I have many more pictures, but I'll save them for later. I'm going with any of the above pictures as my Eye Candy Friday post.

Did anyone do anything special for the Blue Moon last night? I did a ritual and spell that I think went pretty well. I certainly felt better during and after the ritual.

I'm off for now. I'll try to post more later.

Sorry about your trip. I had a strange trip to Salem about that time. I am still friends with those I went with but my eyes have been opened a bit more to their true selves. I loved your pictures, I hope I can visit New Orleans one day. Sadly, I didn't do a spell for the Blue Moon, just sat in the garden with my man and gazed at it that night. Hopefully I can get a bit more organized, was so focused on getting a BBQ together at the house and all it entails (cleaning, laundry, groceries, baking cookies). Sometimes I like my life busy, but sometimes I wish it would just slow down a bit.
