Second Line to City Hall New Orleans 2007

Inside a Second Line, New Orleans, LA

Second line video. We were visiting an above-ground cemetery in New Orleans when we heard live jazz coming from the street. A second line was passing by on its way to City Hall. A few kind gestures later, we were in the middle of it, marching along with everyone else. This was such a joyous moment during our celebration of Mardi Gras in 2007; it was bittersweet, though, as the residents were protesting the government inaction following Hurricane Katrina. (The march was later featured in the documentary Trouble the Water. Alas, we didn’t make it into the film.)

I paused for a picture inside my zorb, a moment of calm before the craziness. Do you know what zorbing is? You can read about my experience here — Zorbing: A Gigantic Hamster Ball and the Meaning of Life

Bleeker subway station New York City 2007

Could my husband look any “bleeker”? Bleeker subway station, New York, NY

I love visiting Manhattan, but the subways are always the times when we feel the fatigue from the rushing and the crowds.

It’s a Small World, Disney World, Florida

The “It’s a Small World” ride at Disney World: I remembered it as the happiest place on earth. My sons and husband were annoyed with me for hours. The song was stuck in our heads for days.
