Check out these pictures my sister-in-law took while on a work trip to New Orleans. They’re a good reminder that people are still rebuilding their lives down there, even if Katrina is old news to the rest of us. It never ceases to amaze me how easily lives and places are wrecked, and how long it takes to recover from that.
And that is all the profundity I can give you tonight. It’s been a long several days. We lost a car, bought a car; picked fourteen pounds of strawberries; washed, destemmed, dried, froze and turned to jam those fourteen pounds of strawberries; went to swim lessons and piano lessons and church and doctors’ appointments and playgrounds; ran the dishwasher and washer an obscene amount of times… and my house is still wrecked and a friend is coming over tomorrow, but the second season finale of Battlestar Galactica calls, so adieu, gentle readers… Till next time.

Thanks for the nod, Rabia!! It really was amazing to see… I wish I could have just walked around more just to really take time to see everything. One group drove by an empty school where the marquee out front was still advertising registration for the fall of 2005.
No problem, Robin. I love that sunset picture you took. What lens did you use for that? We get such pretty vistas up here. Maybe I should be toting around a wide-angle lens :D.
