This week spent in New Orleans is soon coming to an end and I am experiencing this lingering feeling of dissatisfaction. Yes, visiting the touristy parts of the city has been enjoyable, the stories of the few visitors we have had will stick with me longer and more vividly than the bead covered cobblestones of bourbon street. Their stories, depicting their point of view of the effects Katrina has had on their communities, have provided me with a purpose for my work here. There is clearly a need and view my role in the recovery work a small one. I hope to return to NOLA in the near future for there is still so much work to be done. Its very overwhelming.
