With Great Trepidation I Convert!

As many of you know, I've been sending out emails from New Orleans since about ten days after Katrina devastated our city. The mailing list has grown and grown, and the mail has been forwarded and forwarded. The email medium has become a bit unwieldy.

For a little while the emails will continue, but I hope to direct all my former readers to this medium. I have had great encouragment from my readers and friends, so I will give this a shot.

I was told by a friend the other night that I'd been "holding back." Yes, I believe that is probably true. There were many stories that didn't make it into the emails because they were too harsh or too cold or even too perverse. I will continue to write from the heart, but I will concern myself less with whether I offend someone or not. On the subject of New Orleans and Katrina, it's difficult not to offend someone somewhere. and while I do not and will not set out to offend, I will also not walk quite so lightly.

We'll see how this goes.
