100 Words -- New Orleans

Neutral ground … mist rolling off the Mississippi … purple, gold, and green … Community Coffee … live oaks gracefully arching over wide streets … secret gardens  … Katrina crosses … urban spaces as art canvases … chicory coffee (ugh!) … beignets (uhm!) … the  Flea Market … folks sitting out on stoops … children playing … empty house lots … Crescent City… tangles of refinery pipes … bloody good Bloody Mary’s … mystery disks in sidewalks … street bands swinging Dixieland jazz … Jackson Square walled in by art canvases … wrought iron balconies festooned with ferns … Krewe of Cork beads … ginormous potholes … City Park … po’ boys (don’t call ‘em subs) … blackened alligator … snowy egrets … people talking … resilience.
