Oh my! It’s a been about four months since I last posted up here. I wish I could attribute the absence to a deliberate hiatus. But, I can’t. Rather, my focus has been elsewhere. Between working on my personal photography challenge, starting a monthly Brews & Brushes event series and transitioning into a new job, I have been offline a lot more and it feels great! Nothing beats connecting with people in real life.
I am at a lost for words to describe how it feels to hear the decision of juries for the Mike Brown and Eric Garner cases. Hurt, anger, fear, shame, sadness, indifference and grief all at the same time. This is some traumatic kind of living.
“For his part, director Spike Lee took the video of the incident, which went viral, and intercut scenes of Radio Raheem’s death sequence in his seminal 1989 film, “Do The Right Thing,” essentially holding up a mirror to reality, emphasizing how much his art seemingly imitates (or maybe I should say, reflects) real life – still, some 25 years later, since that film’s releaseway.”
