Et in Arcadia, Oil!

Originally uploaded by New Orleans Lady

The entire Gulf Coast wetlands ecosystem is a delicate and profound balance of tides, winds, and ocean temperatures.

It’s almost cosmic.

Tides push and pull vast and deep columns of water through narrow passes into lakes and bays and back out to the open ocean.

This is a marine cardiovascular system on a continental scale, one supporting waters that roil with life.
