So I spent the days quietly and the nights avoiding stimulation, taking in what I could from passive activities. I watched the town from afar as I crossed to Algiers on the ferry. I wobbled through the streets on the trolley. Yet I could not shake the surrealism of my own thoughts - swimming through the vacant pool of my mind. I was meditative, preferring to spend the nights in reading my more bleak books.
And now after only two full days I have to leave. Some would probably say I had yet to experience the true spirit of New Orleans. Maybe so, but I had nothing left to move my inertia. Maybe I was getting just a little homesick.
