Hurricane Formations

The past several days the talk of a storm were two punching fist ready for battle out in the Gulf filled the airways. The aggressive activity seen above and below caused intense anxiety, for what was to come in the following days attached to hurricane devastations of Ida that would reflect climate change warming the globe in ways that was beyond imagination. The photo on the steps of the old Marigny Opera House weathered and stressed wood building structure that was a historic converted 1853 church. I noticed the swollen gray storm clouds brewing, and the Opera building pay homage to an emotional reflection of the past and the present meshed together through the rippled wrinkles of time, tenacity, and trilogy.
