Y’all Know I Love New Orleans…

Filed under: New Orleans,NOLA Bloggers — Morwen Madrigal @ 10:46 pm

and I think I can express that fairly well here on this Blog, but Lord David over at Humid City just blew me away.

Bring back up, a bible, an airplane bag or whatever puts you at ease.
Let me be one of the many who will graciously introduce you to the most Beautiful Drunken Whore of a City that ever Saved Your Soul. Just be prepared.
To fall in love with her, that is.
Your gonna be one of us now.
Welcome home, darlin.
We been waiting…


  1. Thanks so much, luv.
    Just like you, I love this city like my life.
    We all bleed the same here, don’t we?
    In To-Go cups…
    This is Our Communion.
    Blessed are we.
    Oh, yes, we are.

  3. Bright blessings MM and LD!!! Elspeth here – and cannot WAIT for my visit July 17-20 visit!!! (fleurdelisgal on myspace)
    I am sooo ready to be there! About to fire up my laptop so that I can stream WWOZ into my headphones and not compromise the bandwidth on the work server…keeps me sane w/o drugs (aside from an afterwork adult beverage…LOL!)
    I hope to meet y’all and many more. Staying at the Banana Courtyard (my fave).
    New Orleans is in my blood – I don’t have platelets and plasma, I have andouille floating in rum!!! ;) Goddess bless and keep her!!!!! Oh, a little river blessing/levee warding ritual would be nice!

    Hugs and blessings – Elspeth

  4. LD is for true a gracious man.
    When I read his email back to me with his reply to my friend, it gave me chills and made me remember *why* I changed so dramatically after the federal flood. I’ve always loved New Orleans but I became fierce when everything went down here. Lately, I’ve lost a part of that fierceness…rather, allowed myself to become less, I don’t know, involved. After 2+ years I felt tired and just sad for alot of reasons. LD seems to have healed that lethargy with his brilliant words. And you, my dear, are another one that speaks so eloquently and passionately about our “beautiful drunken whore”.
    I can’t wait to meet our new New Orleanian in person and share y’all with her. She’s gonna love it here.

  5. Well Darlin’ Mermaid, Elspeth’s coming soon and so is your friend. We must be doing something right.

    And never worry about losing your fierceness in the defense of our home. You are a “Healer”, which is what I wish to be again, but I still must be a Valkyrie and teacher for our place on this planet.

    We need Healers really bad. I wish I could go there now, but the time is not right. Soon though, very soon.

    I can’t wait for the day to come when you and I walk the labyrinth.
