If I don't write about it, I might implode.
|On the road to trying to rebuild your life, it's nice to be distracted by some good news for a change. At a time when New Orleans is under tight scrutiny, the slightest going-ons being reported internationally, nowadays, The Saints and the team's winning season are helping to improve the city's image and reinforcing some of us with a sense of hope. Of course I want them to beat The Bears , but even if The Saints lose, they're still winners in our eyes, especially after the great year of football they've given us.
Another nice distraction to know about: Horror Movie Based on King Story to be made in Shreveport. Read the brief details at http://tinyurl.com/yrsqzc, if interested.
Plus, we've learned that Brad and Angelina have bought a house in The French Quarter and plan to move to New Orleans, soon. Nicholas Cage, who used to have a home, here, too, has also bought another place in or near The Quarter, while his uncle (I think), Francis Ford Coppola, still has his home, here, as well.
I wish Anne Rice (http://www.annerice.com/) would move back to New Orleans. Hmmm... Thinking of her still brings the vamps to mind, although she doesn't write about them anymore. A hurricane...levee failures...devastating flooding...some of the dead literally being swept from their graves...vampires in the midst of it all...
There might be a horror story, or at least a dark fiction tale, waiting to be born from those details. Maybe I'll write one, someday.
