“Sometimes my mind goes out on a limb. And with the wind blowing the branch, thoughts ramble in and out of my brain like the leaves blown from the tree. Some are so quickly passing that it seems another hurricane blew by...” A personally written account of Mary Patricia Cavell Bulber’s experiences, from her birth in New Orleans in 1930, attending school during tumultuous war times, and her legacy as a part of the early faculty of McNeese State University and the Music Department.

This is an autobiographical telling of that history, and with it a telling of her life.
