Audio essay: Christmas Reflections

Not long after returning from a week in immediate-post-Katrina New Orleans, I submitted this brief essay to the excellent Chicago Public Radio program 848. It’s a wonderful, low-key show that puts listeners in touch with a broad spectrum of professional and non-professional writers reading in their own voices.  My segment aired on December 22, 2005. Here it is, along with the capsule description from the 848 website:
