I’ve been back in New Orleans for a little over two weeks. Things are going really well. I’m getting laid regularly. My food stamp application is in. I’m doing work that makes my soul sing. I really feel like I’m helping people, truly making a difference. The world seems to be blossoming with opportunity. I haven’t felt this much hope and potential in a long time. I feel like I’m coming back to life.
The long night is almost over.
