48 Hours in Harlem

it is important; now and then; to venture out.  to go beyond one's comfort zone.  . . . so off to 48 Hours in Harlem i went ---- with a driving rain assist.

rubber boots; umbrella; my Black soul.  that was my trinity.

in a sense [but not officially], i was a VIP.  Erin Cherry, one of the producers invited me.  Ms. Cherry is an actress, yes.  but there was nothing theatrical about her invitation.  she invited me the new-age way --- through Facebook.

Prior to Facebook, she and i had a drink together; accidentally @ a Yale mixer.

why did i bother to go from Southern Brooklyn to Harlem?  Ms. Cherry is a serious thespian.  and i am serious about seeing Black people strut their stuff on stage :

i know a famous; Pulitzer-prize-winning black play-write [right].  her name is Suzan-Lori Parks.  a graduate of my alma mater Mount Holyoke; Ms. Parks still writes with a typewriter escort.

SNAP.  let it roll Sister.

@ 48 Hours in Harlem; Ms . Parks was on my mind.  . . . because of the honesty there --- the straight-up; no nonsense Sense of Being on stage.

Harlem : worth the trip.

Top Dog Under Dog

                           Careful, that stuff is pure ---
 maximally efficient; like my efficiency apartment ----                
                       from within --- sustained by a common core --- this
                  common read : Top Dog Under Dog.

                 What chu got?
              Are you locked out; locked up or secure?

Is your hope erect? 
does the crumbling
somewhere soon?

Political Lo-Down

Right-Wing Duck.

Recently renewed from a week @ my family's lakeside retreat; I returned to Gotham with the discovery of a duck [and its subsequent chase] [S/he was camera-shy] to be uploaded / downloaded.

The New York City Board of Elections sent me notice of the upcoming November primary / election with this reminder : "Vote or Liberty is History."

My duck friend knows how important liberty is.  Do you?

Left-Wing Duck.

For more on this "time period" I recommend
historian / animator / UberNerd Margo Burns.

Mr. Bridge's boss --- Mr. / Rev. Hooker is icing on my prosthetic cake [see  this blogger's right_hook].
She was in the sun; I, in the shade.
Harvard film students.
Harvard boys get 'oriented' .
Mr. Bridge stands fast.
Woman reads; bird feeds.
