4 Directions ~ Indigenous Hurricane Relief ~ VIDEO
I spent a great deal of time doun de bayou in Chauvin the last couple of months in Louisiana. Much love & respect to the Courteaux's for allowing me to hang around , mostly working on other projects from the Wonder Pod Satelite internet hook up, camping at the Volunteer Center. It was magical ... as long as you had bug spray. The locals have systematically developed their natural defense to the mosquitos by feeding children increasing doses of a local berry... Unprepared volunteers however, often ran, flapping & screaming across the yard.
During the first weeks after Hurricane Katrina I followed my friend Naomi's blog and wished I could be there, she kept me interested in coming to New Orleans.. even though I was sure I'd missed it all. How ridiculus to think it was all over in November. 6 months later and New Orleans is truely a thing of the past, most of the coastal communities are STILL completely wiped out and some have just begun to return ... it's STILL long from "over".
