Roots in the Hood

Roots in the Hood

 

The roots run deep in this North Miami neighborhood.  There are churches on every other corner.  There is one that has been frozen in mid construction.  The roots of the community seep deep into the shallow sandy earth.

The  creole speaking neighbors all greet us as we walk down the street at dusk.  The neighborhood may not be the most wealthily but all of them have real wealth.  They love their community and have respect for each other.  This is the way life is suppose to be.

G-d is with us if we allow G-d into our lives.  Only if we make room in our lives for him will we know what love actually is.  We have to be open to the love, and the reminders that we are shown every day.  These reminders are our daily bread.

 

 

 

 

Secret Garden on NE 135 Street North Miami

Secret Garden, NE 135 Street, Miami

I made a late night visit to an old friend last night.  It was great getting the chance to reason and just be together with him in brotherhood.

As I was walking back to where we had parked on the street I noticed what a beautiful garden was in front of the house.  The land unfolded before my eyes, as the yellow halide light filtered through the trees.

Our little secret garden on NE 135 Street, North Miami.  It was so far removed from the hustle of 135 Street, but this patch of sculptured green was so far removed.  There are places for one to sit and just relax and take in the cool Miami air.

 

Even a Soccer Field Warms My Heart

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

Here I am in Tokyo, under a pile a blankets awaiting a spring that does not seem to come.  Day after day the weather is cold, or the skies open and icy rain falls from the heavens.  I am not sure why, but I do know that even on a day like today I would love to sit in the bleachers on a faceless soccer field and just let my heart bask in the glory that the Most High provides with the sun.  But, for now, I will bundle up, wrap a scarf around my neck and wait for those cherry blossoms to open, or will they?

Window Shopping in North Miami

Friday, March 12th, 2010

I got to spend some time with friends over the weekend up in north Miami.  The windows spoke stories of the ever changing neighborhood.  The changes that happen slowly but sneak up on you and bite you when you are not paying attention.  Special shouts go to Brian and Naya.

Reflecting in Miami

Friday, February 26th, 2010

I spent my first day running around the North end of Miami with my brother.  Fighting off the jet lag, I managed to get a few clicks in.

The Roti Kitty, Know what I mean?

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

Found this little kitty wandering around the Roti Shop on NE 2nd Avenue and 79th street.  Just two doors down from the Next to Shine breaking bboy dance battle at Youth Expressions.
