Our memories need a home! Bayou water runs through our veins and though life takes us on many roads, having a place to return to is essential to all of us. A connection to place is a key part of our well-being. Sometimes when life gets hectic, being able to drive ’down the bayou’ is all it takes to put that extra spring in your step. While some people day-dream about being on a beach, people in South Louisiana might day-dream about fishing in the pirogue with their grandpa. We should always the chance to return to our memories. How sad will that day be if we have to say, “I can’t show you that old oak tree because it’s under water.”
