I recently got to spend a week in New Orleans also known as " The Big Easy". History permeates this city from the French Quarter to the Garden District and beyond. The side streets, the French Market, St. Charles Avenue Trolley, Magazine Street and the historic homes have filled many a manuscript with ghost stories and legends.
Here are a couple of things I found that were not easy about, The Big Easy .
1. Where to eat,Bonjour comment puis-je decider!!! the discussions would start at breakfast on where to eat for lunch or dinner. The choices seem over whelming, but something that works for me when I travel is to zero in on location and the types of food I personally enjoy. When in NOLA I gravitate towards Cajun and French cuisine. Olde Nawlins Cookery ( 205 Bourbon Street ) and the deli counter at Rouses Lower Garden District are equally worthy for winning top place for #crawfish.

nothing like a trip to New York City to soak in the energy and fashion vibes of
the Big Apple! The city that never sleeps, kinetic life on every corner and oh

Clayton who was admitted into The Recording Academy at the age of 13 is
a singer-songwriter and touring artist.
He has toured with the national, Teen Nation Tour. Clayton currently

tandem with a budding modeling career. I have known Clayton since my touring
days on Teen Nation. My recent single release, American Wild, has received
attention from industry tastemakers which has landed me in Nashville and
Atlanta studios working on a new EP. I am currently set to release my newest single …
As many of you may have noticed I graduated from high school last May. Graduating from high school put me on the path full time to pursue my music. May also marked the release of my newest single titled American Wild. If you listen to the lyrics of the song you may notice I am speaking about myself! "American Wild" is full of energy, sass and a bright out look on life; which pretty much describes me. With the consent of my parents I am taking a gap year from "higher education" and am enjoying all the "on the job" training I can get.
I call my first OJT course #Dreams & #Intuition. Some of the challenges of this course are not being weighed down by problems, focus on being lead by my dreams, the intuition to make wise business-career decisions and act on them. Dreams offer one a self motivating energy but need to be rooted in reality. Intuition is that inner voice speaking dreams into existence. I am a big advocate of goal setting which keep my…
