Vegetables or art?
Yesterday I went down to the French Market to catch the Crescent City Farmers' Market, which takes place there on Wednesdays. Unfortunately, I was wrong about the time. I got there two hours too early.
So instead I wandered around the shops on Decatur Street; at the downtown end of the French Quarter there are still some funky antique and junk shops, some dive bars and voodoo shops. In one junk shop, I saw a painting on the wall. It's acrylic on canvas, painting in 1985. For junk-shop prices!
It was too early to buy vegetables, so I bought art.
Get your nourishment where you can.
