Caught this band – Da Truth Brass Band – playing on the corner on Frenchman street.

When I remember to, I carry a $95 video camera, the size of a pack of cigarettes, with me and shoot interesting things I see Lumiere-style (one shot, no edit) If I find that I have anything good, I load it up to YouTube.

Everyone who lives and visits New Orleans could be doing this.

In the process, bit by bit, we could put the magic of New Orleans out there for people who’ve never been here and maybe change people’s perceptions about the city and why it is so worth helping in its time of need.

Stop waiting for grants and the time to be right. Just do it.
