The title isn't random.
I saw this flickering light, middle of the day, in the French Quarter. It was really just an accent. Not so functional because even at night, the street lights did a better job of lighting things up. But on the other hand, it seemed to me it was light a quarter note in a song. By itself, a quarter note doesn't do much. But mix it up with a bunch of other notes and you've got a melody -- maybe one of those that you find yourself singing over and over again.
This accent doesn't do a whole lot. But mix it with hundreds or even thousands of accents like it in one small area of the city, and you have a the French Quarter -- a melody of history that plays over and over again, every day. One that lives on in your memory.
