Seven weeks ago, Jane, who had returned directly to New York, was in full swing reuniting with international friends at a Hague Appeal for Peace meeting on peace education. Meanwhile, Ethan had detoured east from Houston to stop in on Padraic, professoring history at McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Padraic's two-day tour (by bike and by car) of campus, the city, and the surrounding Gulf floodplains and its gastronomic greatness is not to be missed! Ethan made it back to NYC just in time to join Jane at a one-night-only show of some of Jeff Stock's music, and a soon-to-close exhibition of Carl Lyttle's photography.
