How could I forget to post this gem of a sound byte I collected from a cab driver while visiting New York City. I tell you, the stories continue to flood from that place, and I wasn’t there a week!

I’ve finally finished my South African Travel blog. If you’d like to check it out, please click here.


Before my voyage to South Africa, I spent a day in New York with friends. My stay was short but sweet. And I stumbled upon the mecca of all French brasseries stateside, Balthazar Restaurant in SOHO on Spring Street. If you love fresh, simple, yet hearty food inspired by French cuisine, you must stop by. Oh yeah, if you’re a java-lover, the coffee at Cranberry’s was delicious, really creamy and rich.

I live in Midtown Memphis and I usually keep abreast¬† (what a stuffy word) of all things Midtown, but this golden-multi-colored-pom-pom stump, has me stumped. It sits at the corner of Higbee and Cooper street just across from Peabody Park.¬† I’m not sure if this is an Urban Art Commission project like Greely Myatt’s “Tin Quilts” downtown, or if this is the doing of the local Knit Mafia (I’ll have pictures later). I don’t remember seeing it a couple of days ago. I wonder who did this? Oh well, until I find out, I’ll just continue to admire it from the sidewalk, unlike today when I tried to cross rush hour traffic to get a close-up and almost got hit. Anything for the arts! Right?
