New Orleans

"Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans?  And miss it each night and day?  I know I’m not wrong, this feeling's gettin' stronger, The longer, I stay away.  Miss them moss covered vines; the tall sugar pines,  Where mockin' birds used to sing; And I'd like to see that lazy Mississippi hurryin' into spring.
The moonlight on the bayou, a creole tune that fills the air.  I dream about magnolias in bloom and I'm wishin' I was there..."
~~song by Eddie DeLange and Louis Alter.  First public performance by Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday in the movie New Orleans, 1947.

    Hi lydia, I was born in Baton Rouge but always enjoyed visiting New Orleans!  Had family there during Katrina, but all were okay.  I had actually forgotten about the song until you mentioned it on the other design, so thank you!!

    I am curious, Starsector, do you live in New Orleans?  I took the first sentence with me when I left but couldn't remember the rest (Of course, I know I could look it up), but thanks for posting it.  I have a lot of bittersweet memories of my 12 years there, the only place in the US that I really loved and miss.

    “Like the magnolia tree, She bends with the wind, Trials and tribulation may weather her, Yet, after the storm her beauty blooms, See her standing there, like steel, With her roots forever buried, Deep in her Southern soil.” ― Nancy B. Brewer
