Passage of the Day: “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood”: The Beginning of the End of Old Louisiana

 “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood” was first published by Rebecca Wells in 1996 and made into a movie in 2002.

“ Secret codes and lore and lingo stretching back into that fluid time before air conditioning dried up the rich, heavy humidity of Louisiana that used to hang over the porches of Louisiana, drenching cotton blouses, beads of sweat tickling the skin, slowing people down so that the world entered them in an unhurried way. A thick stew of life that seeped into the very blood of the people, so eccentric, languid thoughts simmered inside. Thoughts that would not come again as porches were enclosed, after the climate was controlled, after all windows were shut tight, and the sounds of the neighbourhood were drowned out by the noise of the television set.”
