This year was my first AIDS Walk in NOLA.
It was an amazing experience.
Not only did I get to partner with CrescentCare and raise a LOT of money for to help end HIV and AIDS in New Orleans, but I was able to take my son and daughter with me.
It was truly a transcendent experience.
And although only one mile, when we got to the one mile mark my daughter was clearly not amused.
There is something so exhilarating to be able to give back to people who give so much to others.
I want to give a very huge and special shout out to my Employer Fluor Federal Petroleum Operations, LLC in Harahan for a generous donation.
As well as to Sandee Cashdollar (Aunt Sandee), and Carol Amann (Aunt Clanny), for their generous donations, as well as everyone else who gave.
If you could not give this year, have no fear, I’ll be doing it again next year.
You can always give then.
Better yet, give, AND walk..
Walking to end HIV/AIDS, puts you into the lives of some beautiful people who need to know that they are honored and loved.
End the Stigma, end the disease.
Simple as that.
So little time, can do so very much.
And you’ll be so damn glad you did..

Who is James, or rather who was James and who is James becoming? This is a question that I am attempting to answer myself, and I guess I have been trying to answer for as long as I can recall. I, am Chronically Broken, and yet perfectly arranged. Does that make any sense to you? I guess what I am trying to get at is that although I am altogether similar to who I was and always have been, I am strangely dissimilar from anyone I have ever known myself to be. Much like the roads in New Orleans, the city that has become my home I am constantly under construction. And that is the reason for this site, to chronicle this rebirth, this renewal. To speak to those who are in desperate need of some renovation of all the amazing potential and possibilities.
