New Orleans on My Mind

As I sit many miles away from New Orleans I feel anxious as the clock moves closer to Katrinas land fall. I love New Orleans. I love the music, the people, the way of life. Sure Mardi Gras is fun, but I love the culture and the history. I sat in Preservation Hall and listened to Dixie Jazz as it was heard and seen 100 years ago. I wandered in and out of the Jazz clubs trying not to miss a note or riff. I sat on the bank of the mighty Mississippi looking back over the quarter soaking in the legends of the past. I pray for the people and the history of New Orleans and the surrounding towns as well. Hold strong against mother nature so we can all enjoy your spirit again soon. You are in the thoughts of many from the Motor City tonight.

    *sigh* I hope Tujaques is still standing. I want to take my wife there.
