This is one of the photos I took in New Orleans in June of 2005 before Katrina. I am so grateful that I was able to visit there again before the disaster. I love this city, it antiquity, it’s style, it’s people and it’s creativity. Katina will long live in my memory and I pray that no one ever has to endure such a disaster again.
Even before Katrina this time of year has always created a feeling of anxiety for me. My house being surrounded by old oak trees with shallow roots, the hurricane season is a major concern. Falling trees and heavy rains flooding my basement more than once and a leaky roof are experiences that I pray I don’t have to endure again.
