i still know what it means...

...even if i'm not writing about it as often as i used to. two years ago, shawn and i had decided that we were moving to new orleans someday. it was a part of our short/long term plan. we talked about it alot. i think we don't talk about it very much now because its hard. there's nowhere we'd rather be. we have obligations in chicago though, responsibilities. but i also feel a sense of obligation to new orleans. maybe its on my mind more now because august 29 is looming. i miss new orleans every single day. i feel it in my pores. and when i think about hurricane season, our friends, and our beloved city, i can't breathe.

so, this is probably the first post of many on this topic this month. and here's two articles that prompted this post.
