Seven years after hurricane Katrina, New Orleans is still in a state of renewal. The city’s nickname, The Big Easy, has come to represent it’s slow, easy-going, laid back attitude and the recovery process has been slow but never easy. And even in it’s continued state of flux, New Orleans remains one of America’s most unusual cities. There is no other like it…the architecture, the food, the people, the culture, the smells, the neighborhoods, the festivals, Mardi Gras…I could go on and on.
I am very proud of my son and the work he is doing with the non-profit agency HandsOn New Orleans as the renewal continues in “America’s Most Interesting City” and it’s most resilient.
I am always enchanted by the colors, ironwork, and plantings in the French Quarter when I visit New Orleans.
