I've never been to Mardi Gras, though I've had friends who've been, and they've said it's wild! I love the costumes, sense of decadence and celebration. I guess that's why I'm in theatre, and I'm in NY! :)
The biggest decadence for me today is TIME, taking time to get to the gym, work on music and scripts, getting a massage, thinking ahead. Even blog! ;)
It makes me think of the old saying, "Stop and smell the roses," to take time to breathe in the beauty of life.
My friend, Michael, stops to smell the roses. :)
