  • Submerged: Part 6

    New Orleans is no longer a militarized wasteland—at least, not all of it. You learn to cross off areas in your mental map: the Lower Ninth Ward, the housing projects, parts of Mid-City, New Orleans East, Lakeview, Chalmette, St. Bernard. But Uptown, there are blocks and blocks of standing houses. A man jogs in Audubon Park. A neighbor is out walking her Yorkshire terrier past my still-boarded house. It's all getting so normal.

    The Collister Neighborhood is located in northwest Boise and is one of the few remaining parts of town where large lots still exist, and where it is not uncommon to see kids riding horses up and down the streets or deer camped out in the pasture during the late fall and winter months. I grew up in this neighborhood and I find it remarkable that even after 20 years, even after all of Boise's rapid growth, this still occurs.

Perceptions are hybridizing: the warning, the pain, the monster and me. Day and night, night and day, we are together. We are becoming. We are becoming one. What is left but an invitation?
