Mary Ann O’Gorman | Mapping a Modern MS

Sunday, September 4, 2016

Hurricane Katrina drastically altered the life of Mary Ann O’Gorman, poet. After the storm, she began practicing yoga and eventually began teaching in Ocean Springs.

“When I moved here, I realized that you were allowed to be—eccentric is a nice word for it—on the street. There was no need to hide yourself, and that was a challenge for me personally. And I feel like I’ve grown into that because the community is very accepting.”- Mary Ann
