Walking. With Georgia.


Wow!! Checking the priviledge …

Live & Learn

It was Sunday morning. 4:50 a.m. 68° F. Morning Walk @ Cove Island Park. 432 consecutive days, like in a row.

My “observations” from my Sunday walk led to yesterday’s Monday Morning Wake-Up Call post — a quote from Janwillem van de Wetering, about being proud of his awareness, proud of his awareness of his pride, being clever to know that he is stupid, etc. etc.

The quote landed. My cup of awareness (I thought) runneth over, and I have a vice grip on all that I don’t know.  But this observation seemed to bottom out.

This spring, with the increase in seasonal park traffic, garbage cans were planted throughout the Park — electric pink — surely colored to encourage patrons to dump their sh*t in the can. I did notice the green cans, but they seemed fewer in number. And for 100 straight days, I walked by…

Enough is enough!! … “Thousands of Cubans marched on Havana’s Malecon promenade and elsewhere on the island Sunday to protest food shortages and high prices amid the coronavirus crisis, in one of biggest anti-government demonstrations in memory.

Thousands of Cubans marched on Havana’s Malecon promenade and elsewhere on the island Sunday to protest food shortages and high prices amid the coronavirus crisis, in one of biggest anti-government demonstrations in memory.

Many young people took part in the afternoon protest in the capital, which disrupted traffic until police moved in after several hours and broke up the march when a few protesters threw rocks.

“We are fed up with the queues, the shortages. That’s why I’m here,” one middle-age protester told The Associated Press. He declined to identify himself for fear of being arrested later.

Cuba is going through its worst economic crisis in decades, along with a resurgence of coronavirus cases…

‘Landfall’ Documentary Highlights The Strength of Puerto Rico & Its People


#OrgulloBoricua … another one!! … “On the surface, Landfall is a film about the life of Puerto Rican people post-Hurricane Maria.

A report by Toni Gonzalez for Remezcla.

On the surface, Landfall is a film about the life of Puerto Rican people post-Hurricane Maria. But this latest documentary from director Cecilia Aldarondo, which premieres today, goes beyond what’s seen in the mainstream media following the tragic natural disaster that struck the island in 2017. Instead of the usual narratives, Aldarondo is spotlighting the strength and resilience in the Puerto Rican people, inher  people. 

Aldarondo spoke with Remezcla over the weekend from Puerto Rico, where she is presenting the film. “Puerto Ricans in the mainstream media were being painted as victims. There was this image, especially because people were focused on Donald Trump throwing paper towels, of the Puerto Rican people with their hands outstretched waiting for aid,” Aldarondo tells us in a Zoom interview. “What wasn’t being relayed in the press is that: In reality, the Puerto Rican people…
