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
