Life has become bizzy. With summer budding green on every tree it’s time to reflect for a moment even when life makes that difficult. Especially because life makes it difficult. This piece is from nine years ago – back when Barataria was more like a normal blog of personal reflection. Father Clay is now 90 years old and still going very strong. West Seventh is still West Seventh. Small miracles abound everywhere.
I had the pleasure of attending a banquet for the West Seventh Community Center honoring a man who is part of the glue that holds our community together, Father John Clay.
