Lafayette: Franco Fun Debut



Franco Fun at  Cite des Artes, Lafayette, Louisiana. May 2015.

Music and other creative arts are so damn accessible in South Louisiana. It will be one of the many things I'll miss when I move on to my next temporary home. 

In most other parts of the US, one must make arrangements to go listen to music or go dancing or view art. It requires a special effort. But in South Louisiana, such endeavors are a part of the weekly rhythm of the life here. You can go dancing on a Saturday morning, a Saturday afternoon, a Saturday late-afternoon, a Saturday night, a Sunday afternoon, a Sunday night, in early evenings on several days of the week in the spring and fall, and of course, late at night at the bars. Got kids? You can take 'em to most places.

It was special to spend a Wednesday evening as an appreciative audience member of Franco Fun, a choral group comprised of French immersion teachers in Lafayette.

I will miss all this, indeed.
