From the Outside Looking In

Back in our prior life, Mrs. M. and I would occasionally schedule time together 'beyond the levees', which was either travel or sailing. The theory was that normal life in New Orleans afforded few opportunities for panoramic vistas and the contemplation that such a view creates.

After visiting New Orleans for the anniversary, we continued our travels and stopped in New York and Boston, two other World Class cities.

Overall impact was positive. All of our friends we visited were friends from New Orleans. It was a gentle reminder that New Orleans (and Loyola) leaves an indelible mark on us all.

There is life beyond the levees, and it is better when it is spent with former New Orleanians.
