All week I’ve been trying to pinpoint what it is about this place that intrigues me. I finally recognize it’s not one single thing. It’s the harmony and counterbalance of all of it — the history, tradition, culture and wetlands — that are by turns resilient and endangered, and held together by deep yet fragile roots.
It’s difficult to see, even harder to explain, but I feel it everywhere.
It’s a little lagniappe I’ll take with me when I go, one I hope still exists when I return.
