 IMG_6238-1Lucky me! A huge storm hit on the day I planned a bike repair day in Lafayette. I arrived at Hub City Cycles right after they opened. Mike Broussard of the Cajun French Music Association met me at the shop and treated me to lunch at Don’s, ‘Louisiana’s First Cajun Restaurant’ since 1934. He introduced me to fried alligator and shrimp etouffee over a long conversation about Cajun music and culture.

After lunch, I scuttled back to Hub Cycles and lingered there throughout the afternoon until the skies cleared and I made my way to my evening’s host. My ongoing dance in and around nature continues to sing a benevolent tune.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
