sometimes you visit a place and it sticks with you. you may know it right away. or it may surprise you later, after you’ve been removed from its streets and cafes and markets. but we’ve all been somewhere that lives inside us, no matter how far away we are, no matter whether we think we’ll ever make it back.
but oh, we will. we just have to. right?
for me, one of those places is new orleans. i think about it all the time, and not just because i have a tattoo on my wrist that i got while there this past summer. i mean, i think about it a lot.
the amazing architecture.
yes. i admit it. i’m reminiscing. because i can. because i’ve been there and it now lives in me. so now … now i share.
i hope you look at these photos and smell the city. see its grittiness. taste its foods. hear its music.
indulge your senses with the big easy. because, quite frankly, it’s easy to do. it’s new orleans. and i love it for all its gritty, dirty, stinky charm.
i just do.
what spot on this lovely earth sticks with you? lives inside your heart? makes your soul happy?
