first trip back

to new orleans.
we went in saturday: 2 months after katrina.
it was both better and worse than i expected.
it was way too quiet in the french quarters. eerily so.
i was amazed at the water marks in unexpected places.
and city park just broke my heart.
but it felt really good to be back in spite of all that.
i went to teh west bank and spent soem time checking
the view from the levees near where i grew up and that
seemed more normal. collected some driftwood from the
tangles that had been deposited by the rising water .........
and took lots of pictures

Claire, it must have been heartbreaking to go back and see the destruction. Unfortunately things move out of the news so quickly - I was hoping that we would see more updates on how things are going - well, at least I'm thinking of you and all who lost out in Katrina. I wonder if you woudl share your opinions on whether New Orleans can /should/will be rebuilt?
