Louisiana flood of 2016
A rumination on many waters.
- •I have no words about the flood that has struck my city and surrounding areas.
- •Just watch this: http://youtu.be/JfY5Xce8bgk
- •One of my favorite books as a child was Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engle.A very weird book about the brothers of Meg and Charles Wallace from A Wrinkle in Time. The brothers travel back in time to the days of Noah's Ark.
- •The book's title comes from a verse of the Bible.
- •"Many waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it."
- •And I keep hearing this in my head. Over and over and over. A refrain to hopefully heal us through the end of this heartbreaking summer.
