In 2012, the American Folklore Society annual meeting was held in New Orleans. One afternoon I met an artists, Jack Wittenbrink at his booth in Jackson Square. I loved his work from the moment I saw it, using scrap metal to create images. I bought a small piece in the shape of a skeleton. We talked for a long time and remain acquaintances on Facebook. When ever I hear about someone traveling to New Orleans, I recommend Jack. Two years ago, my friends Geoff and Harriet Miller did just that and brought me back this piece.
