New Orleans is a truly extraordinary city full of even more extraordinary people. Having visited shortly after Katrina too I found the people there so inspiring in the face of such disaster that it was hard not to be moved by it all.


Thank you so much for sharing your memories with us. I really enjoyed it and I can't believe it's been 5 years.

Ok, now you made me cry. I grew up in Morgan City. And I feel about it pretty much the same way you do about N.O. These days when I tell people I am from Louisiana, they always ask me what New Orleans is like. Honestly, I have only been there to Ocshner or other drs. twice to Audubon Zoo and once for Mardi Gras back in 1980. But I think it's possibly the same for all of us born and raised in Louisiana. It's 'home'. Thanks for sharing...

Lovely memoir. I've been to New Orleans once...a beautiful, haunting place. I can see why it left an impression on you and why you eventually came home.


Wow...that photo really takes you in.


well said!!


Amen and hallelujah! N.O. is magic!
