THE CITY

To New Orleans:

You are a beautiful and mysterious woman with whom I am madly in love.You are noble,

full of pomp and ceremony, You are kind, gracious and perilous. You are unique and fully alive.

                        -Simon Gunning

"Port Street, New Orleans. Late afternoon on my street shows how low we really are. The orange shed and wharf were destroyed by Katrina and you can now see the other side of the river from this view."

                                   - Simon Gunning
