Tacos in Little Havana

Tacos in Little Havana

I just stopped off in Little Havana and found this quaint little eatery.  It’s Tuesday and I haven’t had a Taco Tuesday in so long I almost forgot what they taste like.

So I ventured inside and after placing my order, ventured outside to take in the culture.  Man it’s so pretty here.  I could sit here all day.  I had an orange soda…kind of fitting consider I’m bathed in such a delightful color today.  And combined with this glorious food, my lunch did not disappoint!  I think I’ll take in a movie. I hear that Telanovella is pretty good. Ciao

Back in the Day…The Stoop

Sittin’ on the stoop in Bed-Stuy
Always sayin’ hi when the brothers walk by
Just got the etiquette, sittin’ on the top step
With a bag of chips, sit back, relax, enjoy the trip
~ Little Jackie, ‘The Stoop’

Back In the Day...The Stoop

So I’m sitting here on my front stoop, relaxing with my hot fries, eyes closed and reminiscing about my youth growing up in the hood and this song comes on the radio. And BAM…I’m back there again.

Now I’m not from New York (and thereby not from Bed-Stuy), but this song took me back! Like way back to my childhood, young!  No matter where we hung, be it houses, apartment buildings, front porches or the park  it was always all good. And yes…we were ALWAYS snackin’ on something!  Pickles, Hot Fries, Mike.and.Ikes…yaaaaaaas; that was childhood in the hood!  It was simple.  And we were just chillin’, waiting for our homies to be allowed to come outside and play.

I sit here now on my front stoop in the city watching the cars pass, pumping tunes on my radio and observing new tails of street corners, double-dutch and kids playing games running wild in the streets…at least til the street light comes on!  And I realize that I love this place; this time capsule town where even with all of modern technology luring our kids away from the fresh air…there is still a place for them to run free and be children, safe in their hood.

…It’s all good, it’s all good
Cause I love my hood, love my hood
~ Little Jackie, ‘The Stoop’

Curating the New Year

Curating the New Year

When I first got commissioned to be a Curator for the exhibit, I had no idea what I was getting to.  But as I walked through the gallery, taking notes, I came across this piece that simply spoke to me. The young artist was incredibly talented, colors incredibly vivid and though the work seemed chaotic, I found peace between the lines.

I think…this series of artwork is going to be amazing and this gallery is far too small to contain such talent.

Kilo Sings the Blues

Kilo Sings the Blues

A smoke-filled club, the lights low and as the house music rises, so does her voice.  She croons, pouring her soul into the words…everything she feels echoing into the air.  She has succumbed and the music has led her on a path where it touches her like no one else can.

Chocolate Rendezvous

Though I do try to eat healthy, sometimes the chocolate just be calling me…

Chocolate Rendezvous

And the RL version of this little mouthful of wonderful is one of my favorite candy bars in the land of flesh and bone. Ohhhh the blend of the caramel, the chocolate, the cookie crunch…Mmmmmm. And let me leave this in the fridge or freezer for a spell. Y’all my eyes will roll into the back of my head and I will not know what in the world is going on.  An anvil could drop on my head and I’d be stuck in a chocolate coma of glee.

Chocolate Rendezvous

Okay let me get this snack done before the patients start arriving. Woo!
