Hello, Neighbor

So the eternal renovation of the house next to us is finally complete, and someone has actually moved in. We actually have people living in an adjacent house.* (One of them. The house on the other side remains a gutted shell.)

Another mini-milestone–how about a round of Sazeracs?

* And they even have a young daughter. Before the storm, there were lots of kids on our street. Since the storm, there aren't nearly as many. We need a few more shrill, giddy, chirping voices.


  1. Good to hear it. I can't imagine everything you've gone through. The gradual unfolding of the city must be something that comes in ebbs and flows.

  2. Yeah, it's like molasses. But I remain fundamentally optimistic. Rome wasn't rebuilt in a day.
