reprinting New Orleans In Exile This Holiday ~ What Meant The World by awakening Saturday, November 25, 2006

Without a traditional giving of thanks
No one would know what to look for
Signs of amusement and laughable pranks

Know what to look for

Without a whole day of giving blessing
No one would know what to listen with
Tunes for a whistle and words so caressing

know what to listen with

Without a year to recall what has passed
No one would know where to go
A journey of no destination will end long last

Know where to go

Without a moment of faint smiling dreams
No one would feel what meant the world
Giving thought and thanks to the Old New Orleans

What meant the world.....
