Katrina blew in
with a vengeance August 29th 2005 about 3 - 4am. In 12 hours we
watched her pound our little home with wind and water. While we had
two trees and 20" of water in my studio, we were blessed. Many, MANY
more were not as lucky...
When William Faulkner
accepted the Nobel Prize in 1950, he said, in part:
"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is
immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible
voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion,
sacrifice and endurance."
