Seeing Atlanta for the first time all over again
I’ve been quiet of late, I know. My house has been overrun by family and friends from New Orleans since Katrina hit and I haven’t had much time to devote to a quality post, just a comment here and there.
Things are starting to settle down and I have to admit, I’m really pleased with the welcome my fellow Atlantans have given the refuges from Katrina who have come here, many to settle down permanently. One of the first things I noticed when my wife and I first moved here a year ago, was how friendly most everyone was. That hasn’t changed. Everyone from bartenders to landlords, bankers to civil servants have been extremely understanding and most gracious. Fees are waived, deposits not required, and rules have been bent. As the self-appointed spokesman for New Orleanian transplants, from the bottom of our heart, we thank you.
There has been an influx of some very talented and unique people to Altanta. Hopefully, they will settle in and start making their presence known soon. Give them a little time to find their niche, and keep an eye out. Atlanta is about to become a much better place.
