I knew it was only a matter of time...

August 30th, 2005 (07:19 am)

But watching the News this morning I have begun to see the ruin of places I
actually remember, recognise from my childhood.

Gulfport and Biloxi...Where I spent nearly every summer as a girl, with my Maw-Maw.
My Father's family.

Small small small town Long Beach, Mississippi
Spent on the beaches and piers, crabbing and fishing...
Wandering around by myself, even as a child.
That tiny Mainstreet that leads to the shore, that my Great Aunt Lois' Flower shop
was on--where my Father had worked during the summer as a delivery boy,
and where the generations even after myself...still spend their summers.

Those ancient Pecan Trees around Great-Grandma-Woodcock's house...

All those gorgeous old white columned Historical Homes along the shore-line.

All those PEOPLE. Homeless and without water or power
or roads to even get the food and help TO THEM.

I cannot get my head around it.
I cannot believe the pictures I am watching.

It is simply too much to understand.

hi

dear Ginger,
it is so hard to believe what the Kathrina did in New Oleans. i feel so sorry and so so sad about this city, and her people.

wish all your family there stay in safe and i believe soon they will gather their strength to rebuild the home.

take care,
yidi
