This is my favorite Hurricane Katrina aftermath photo by photographer Richard Misrach. I appreciate the fact that someone was trying to maintain a sense of humor or lift people’s spirits in the midst of such a dark and difficult time.
Today I am hoping that all of my Gulf Coast peeps are finally overcoming the trauma brought by that storm. Me, I’ve moved house 10 times in these 8 years. Right now I am realizing that I have not felt settled in all this time.
I still deal with grief that I suppressed that surprises me when it comes out unbidden in a casual conversation about that time. And I’m only beginning to overcome the financial hit that I took. I know I’m not the only one still dealing with the repercussions.
Sending love out to all who are still dealing with this storm’s aftermath after all these years.
