As promised, the last of New Orleans “round one”. I realize that I am getting ready to lap myself in time and space. Each day I do not post closes in on these days of last May. I am also planning to stop through New Orleans again soon (heads up to my pals in the crescent city). So, with out further ado, I give you the lovely Brooke! I met Brooke at Chaz Fest via my cousin-in-law and friend Jenny. I love the ways that connections, lead to connections, lead to connections. For me they start with a quiet intuitive nudge and when I listen carefully I get to watch the magic of the universe unfold. I don’t know where it will lead, but I know for sure that it is someplace wonderful. This magical road of intuition brought me directly to Brooke and I can’t wait to be with her again to see what is around the next curve.
Brooke and her husband Chip used to live in Memphis. In the aftermath of the great storm they relocated to New Orleans and in 2011 they opened a restaurant called High Hat Cafe in Uptown. You should know, they do magnificent things with pimento cheese. When we met, it took barely 5 minutes for Brooke and I to become great friends and shortly after that I spent quite a lot of time with her, all to my ears, eyes, mouth and hearts delight. As a recent transplant, a restauranteur and big fan of the city, Brooke is a fantastic tour guide. Thank you my dear girl, for every bit of everything you are, I so appreciate you sharing yourself and your new homeland with me.
