Yesterday was the “Dirt Show” at the N Space in Baton Rouge. I participated happily, having dreamed for weeks that I would build a Gaudi-esque wall out of my cubic yard of dirt. I enlisted the help of a friend, Jamye St. Romain, to assist me in creating a mosaic covered side of a pile of dirt that I shaped a little bit by mixing water in the dirt and moving it around. So at 8 am I started. It was about 43 degrees and windy. I had my thermos of coffee.
