This is my labor of love for the Gulf Coast, its people, and the noble Crawfish. My favorite movie involves a trusty and loveable robot left on earth to clean up behind man’s reckless abuse of this beautiful planet. There have been few instances in our history where a man-made disaster has had such a massive impact on an ecosystem as well as a society as the Gulf oil spill. Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, 9/11, Exxon Valdez, The AZF Chemical Plant explosion and finally Deepwater Horizon. In my view, as nearly inexcusable is how quickly this passes from the minds of people who look out and see it’s not in their back yard. We all live on this planet and casting blame and responsibility seemed to be much more important than correcting the problem and restoring not only the wildlife but the lives of everyday people who still depend on the Gulf Coast to feed their families and uphold their heritage. So I present the WALL-E of the sea, casting no blame but ready to tirelessly work to clean up the mess. This is my tribute to people who still labor to clean up after someone else. My apology to people who were asked to take one for the team while others bought new SUVs and complained about the price of gas and that they couldn’t get cheap seafood anymore. My tears for a wetland that will never fully recover, and my promise that I’m not going to forget, nor can I forgive the scars we leave on our Mother Earth. I intend to donate a portion of the proceeds to Gulf Coast restoration efforts.
