Immortals

Time in New Orleans flows differently. It is closer to the end of the world as we know it. People are compelled to be the biggest version of themselves while it lasts. The Immortals are present. While the city is known for Dionysus, with the revelry of Mardi Gras and the drunkenness of Bourbon Street, and Poseidon is known to wreak havoc, there is much more. Artemis makes her presence known with the 504 boys riding their steeds on the city streets and Hera whispers in our ears keeping empires alive despite interstates fracturing the city. The past, present, and future shake hands and it is beautiful to see.
