New Orleans from a Distant Shore

I write from another country, thousands of miles away. Everyone I know shares this sentiment.

It is heartbreaking to watch the tragedy of New Orleans unfolding. The human consequence of nature at its remorseless worst.

I don’t want to weave words and shape ideas about it. The destruction of a city that has shaped the world’s culture, that through jazz and carnival is close to all our hearts, is beyond all that. On its impact on lives and experiences I cannot even find words, only emotion.

All I can do is extend my deepest sympathies to all touched by this terrible disaster.

My thoughts and prayers to you all.
