During a period of four hours beginning at 10AM on Thursday, August 27,2020, the D'Arbonne Swamp changed for many decades. The change was aeolian in the form of Hurricane Laura. She was obstinate, eschewing the normal shape-shifting impotence that occurs upon landfall, and for the first time in recorded history still maintained a Category 1 status when she passed with the D'Arbonne Swamp 200 miles inland.

Originally from Shreveport, Louisiana, Harper Innis is a Vocal Music Education major at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. His ambitions are reinforced with a strong will as he always tries to spread joy to the ones around him.
