Lemmings on Parade
It seems to me that Katrina did her job... Quite thoroughly I might add.

the city has been pretty well destroyed. not just physically, but its spirit has been pretty wlle mangled.

I know a man by the name of Timber Wulff... He's big, pldding, and slow. But inside that exterior lurks a genius. I met Timber over ten years ago. Right after I met Callei and SHade as a matter of fact. He and I left the big easy and got stranded here. Ane he managed to make it back . The Town almost killed his soul, and katrina almost killed his body. But in the midst of all that was going on, he tried to swim back to his home because he heard an all clear had been called. I admire him his bravery in this tragedy.

Timber and I ahve become closer since katrina hit than we ever were before. Because catrina was hell. I don;t know how many of you have ever smelled the stench of death... I am not talking a dead oppossum under your porsch or rotting meat, but teh smell of a human body decomposing. I don't know how many of you have seen someone die in horrific conditions... I have... I say this, not because I wish to talk down to anyone but to put things in perspective.

Because of Katrina, Timber and I now have another point of reference... Death in full force. Piles of bodies in the advanced stages of decomposition. Men, women and children weeping. It may seem melodramatic, but there was a great wailing and gnashing of teeth as the floor waters destroyed the community, the buildings and lives.

He's wept on the phone. He's been silent. And... he's been changed. The brilliant man, now has no naivetee left. And it saddens me.

Timber and I have another thing in common. We both read tarot. We've both done it, side by side, professionally on Jackson Square. For those of yo unfamiliar with New Orleans, jackson Square Is a beautiful place ... or was... just in front of St Louis Cathedral. Artists, Tarot readers, vendors, and street performers used it to make a living and keep part of New Orlean's soul alive.

Back in the day (over a decade ago), the Tarot readers were a fractious group. There were several "houses"(loose affiliations of readers) that were constantly bickering and squabbling ofer space and time. Each house would ahve their morning people stake out truf on the square just to ensure everyone could read and thus survive. then came a man named Gypsy. In under a year, he managed to vanquish teh disputes and petty rivalries and forge a unified house of readers, Aquarius. There was suddenly enough room for everyone. All could read, and all could thrive.

I personally feel that Gypsy was one manifestation of the city father, helping keep new orleans from dying. Gypsy and I had our differences..more than most, but he was important.Timber felt this as well.

Timber left his birth family with no sense of loss when he moved to new orleans. He found a brother in me. And a father in Gyspy... a mother in Gypsy's wife Karen. Timber and I had another connection... we were family.

And now...as of last week... we are connected more than ever. Gypsy went into the hospital for a routine operation (he's had kidney problems all his life). The operation was a complete success. But, as New Orleans is dying, it's soul, and its manifestations pass as well. Gypsy passed away in his sleep, due to complications from teh surgery.

Felix... Chicken Man... Is gone... Gypsy... Father to house Aquarius... is gone... Mouse... The gutterpunk drummer... is gone... Flipper... My brother... is gone...

I fear, too, that soon, New Orleans will e nothing but an empty shell a city without a soul...

I can only hope my fears are unfounded.

Note: Feral thank you for sharing this with us (me). We must remember those that the storm and the government killed.

I love you Feral. My heart goes out to you and your city, your people.

I hope you can feel me holding you in my heart. I would in body too, if I could be there.

Damn...

I hope you are able to find the strength inside you to get through this; the strength that I've seen in you just from knowing you through this place.

My thoughts are with you, and I'm sending you vibes to help you find your deep innner strength that you possess.

THE OPERATIVE: "Serenity Valley. You lost everything in that battle. Everything you had. Everything you were. How did you go on?"

MAL: "If you're still standin' there when that engine starts, you never will figure it out." (Mal presses the button to close the ramp and turns to walk inside) "What a whiner."

~Serenity, 2005.

I walked to work today and every tiny breeze caused more of the snow-white cherry blossoms to rain down on me. In Fallujah, the white that poured down on their heads came from burning phosphorous. Did my appreciation of the now diminish my horror and outrage of the then? Not a bit. Nobody is helped or hurt because I appreciated a moment of serenity. Nor does that moment change my resolve and the decisions I have made.

You're not broken, Feral. You're waking up. And if I can be brash, it's past time. The hurricane season of 2005 was a terrible thing, but so was the tsunami of 2004. And here we are at the threshold of another hurricane season while the problems that caused the US administration to facilitate so much death and suffering are still unresolved. Nobody even remotely qualified will accept the post as head of FEMA. There will be more people who will die as a result, and even more broken and suffering souls.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost family. I'm very sorry to hear it. But countless Afghanis, Iraqis, and citizens from all over the world have lost loved ones to the sociopathic ineptitude of this rogue government. And it will get much, much worse.

I'm sorry for your loss, but do not think you are broken before the floodgates have really opened. Winter is coming; now is not the time to go all helpless on us, Feral.

No man is an Iland, intire of itselfe; every man
is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine;
if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe
is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as
well as if a Manor of thy friends or of thine
owne were; any mans death diminishes me,
because I am involved in Mankinde;
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.


MEDITATION XVII
Devotions upon Emergent Occasions
John Donne

Feral, I can't begin to claim to know anything even close to what you've been through. My heart broke and is still breaking over New Orleans. Even though I never lived there I loved the city, and had even applied to a couple jobs down there in the hopes of having an excuse to move there.

I hope things get better with time, for you and the city.

It may be my current state of mind... but these two replys... seem to exude a superiority that falls just over the line of condescention... it also feels that you are minimilizing what I am going through...


let me ask you this... how do you propose we change it? plain and simple... HOW? shy of terrorism itself... I can think of no other way... save for the plan I have for my future... i am not bullshitting...I am running in 2012

This makes me sad. Since Katrina happened, I had wondered if New Orleans would ever be the same.
