That sounds about right....Just when I had a plan, everything changed. Sounds a lot like 6 years ago..in fact, I think I will use that from now on in describing my Katrina experience. Its an inevitable question - "What was Katrina like for you?" From now on I will say, "Well, it was a lot like planning a trip to China, only to find yourself in (the) Vatican..." I would go on to say it was, and is, about finding the balance between the two polar opposites. So it's appropriate that I would find myself in (the) Vatican on the weekend of the Katrina anniversary. My journey took a different direction when I headed towards (the) Vatican. But I put my faith into believing that whatever path I chose was the right one for me.
There were signs along the way to let me know I was on course, such as the house with the Jesus and Mary statues...
Jesus and Mary
And the street signs. If I ever started to doubt myself, I just had to look no further than the street signs to regroup and get my bearings.
Pope Drive and Vatican Road
It's a different world out there in Vatican, Louisiana, but I soon got accustomed to my surroundings, and though things seemed strange, I began to recognize how much is really the same, wherever ya are.
The Digital World
The Vatican area is blessed with a beautiful and scenic countryside...
Hay and Fence
Vatican wasn't originally part of my trip, but I appreciate that it has become part of my experience. I don't know where I'm headed next, but lines get crossed and plans get changed, so I know that wherever I end up is where I need to be...
See you somewhere in the world! - Natasha
