“We Water People”

June 2nd, 2017

Here is a beautiful 7 minute listen from Peter O’Doud on WBUR’s Here & Now, A Refrain As Louisiana’s Coast Washes Away: We’re ‘Water People. We Can’t Leave’, plus a short article, and some incredible images from Virginia Hanusik (who I follow like a hound on Instagram @ginnyhanusik for her eye on Louisiana).

There is something that’s so haunting about the parts of Louisiana we may to lose without action– the accent, the rhythm of speech, the way of life, the rich history, the things we can’t see now that the long time residents have been observing their entire lives. I find it mesmerizing, could soak in it all day.
