Status: Fortier’s Louisiana Folktales

I spent the morning reading at a nearby coffee shop with my daughter. We sat outside and enjoyed the constant breeze that blew enough to keep us cool, and I indexed the contents of Alcee Fortier’s _Louisiana Folktales_ that seemed interesting for an investigation of the relationship between land and water in the Louisiana folk imaginary.

Quick notes: sixteen items, some of which seem to suggest a connection between land/water relations and eggs. And butter, too. I feel very Levi-Straussian in this moment.
