Unfurling the Awning

Named for a cafe that once existed in Paris and referred to as La Lune Rouge in my French textbooks when I was studying French as an undergraduate, this blog will contain occasional posts about a variety of subjects, such as poetry, graduate school, finding work as a PhD, the American West, living in Kansas, growing up as a Navy brat, movies, and music (mostly jazz but occasionally traditional Irish music, such as Liz Carroll, Seamus Connolly, and Lunasa). Anyone passing by is welcome to sit under the awning on the sidewalk or to step inside. I'll offer a figurative cappuccino or, better yet, a latte topped with whipped cream once in a while.
