Morgan's Note

I always look forward to summer because, for some reason, I think things are going to slow down. Maybe it’s memories of being off from school and my usual lessons, or that the heat and humidity seem to make us slow down – both physically and mentally.

However, the opposite is most always the case. During summer I have my most labor-intensive features to write; vacations seem to pile up (fun, but travel can be stressful); and this year I’m in the midst of a move (only five blocks, but moving after 10 years means going through things that should’ve been sorted long ago).

To that end, our Collectors feature by Dana Hansel has inspired me to put some of those things on display so that I can enjoy them better, and our Guide to Self-Pampering by Kelcy Wilburn caused me to make a list of treatments I want to try – if I can get them scheduled between trips!

Whatever your summer holds, make sure to look to our calendar here to include these upcoming events; just because it’s hot outside, doesn’t mean our city’s nonprofits don’t need your help.

Stay cool and enjoy New Orleans in all its humid glory,



Morgan Packard
