MEET YOUR GUIDE – David Feldman
John Goodman, the actor and New Orleans resident, is quoted as saying, “Someone has suggested that there is an incomplete part of our chromosomes that gets repaired or found when we hit New Orleans. Some of us just belong here.” I am one such person. After retiring from a varied career as a newspaper reporter, school teacher, shipwright, housewright, etc., my wife and I traveled throughout Europe and the US for three years. We fell in love with many cities: Budapest, Vienna, Paris, Savannah, Charleston. But the more we learned about each city the more we came to realize it was the Budapest of the 1930’s, or Vienna of 1914, or Paris of the 1890’s that we had fallen in love with.
Only New Orleans, the New Orleans of then and now, maintained its magnetic hold on us. When we left New Orleans the first time, New Orleans never left us. We came back to stay. I live and breathe my adopted city. Every day I try to visit a new place and mine one more gold nugget.
