out & about in New Orleans

NOLA Mon Cherie… For three long days we traversed your beautiful streets. Walked and worked, the way we do, utterly enchanted by the magic and profoundly moved by the decay. You are definitely the ONLY city we ever saw where a trash can or a road-hazard look festive and ready for the next parade. We also saw pain, worn faces, scars left in the wake of storms and parades. Like every old soul you have a story to tell, one that comes with baggage, with tears of joy and of endless sorrow, with inner incessant groove.
