New Orleans — Sensitivity   4 comments

new-orleans-street-intensity-recovered-blog-iiComputer Painting (New Orleans, December 2014) and video by kenne

I was born on the edge of the big muddy flow
my daddy was French, my mother creole
I’m slow and heavy underneath the sun
but I’m more than willing when the night time comes
I’m a well known street, I’m a marching drum
I’m a dancer, a preacher, a sophisticated bum
I’m a wild tchapatoula, a dice rolling judge
I’m a barker tryin’ to fool you into a late night club

I am the Big Easy I been hit by a storm
brought to my knees have mercy lord
I got soul I got heart
all alone I’m coming out of the dark
I am the Big Easy

— from I am The Big Easy by Ray Bonneville

    We’re in New Orleans for a couple of days, revisiting old places and taking lots of photos, but not time to download them. So, here’s posting from a couple of years ago. — kenne
