We’re starting off the New Year at one of my favorite places on planet Earth and my secret hideaway. It’s a magical place, similar to the fictional land of Oz, with vivid imagery and colors. Every inch of the walls at the abandoned Swim Gym Aquatic Sports Park in Key Biscayne (Miami) is covered with psychedelic street art that will blow your mind. There’s a fence that closes off the park stating, “NO TRESPASSING. This area is a designated construction site. Anyone who trespasses on this property, commits a FELONY…Posted by the City of Miami.” So these photos may be the last pics anyone sees.
NAS is performing in my home city of Miami tomorrow at the SOULFRITO - Urban Latin Music Festival at Sun Life Stadium. Anticipating his arrival stirred up a lot of emotions regarding my relationship to Hip Hop. As you read this letter, please don't judge me. Thanks
TIME LAPSED - by Lisa Ford Totally unplanned, and against my will, I took an impromptu vacation, the first in about four years. After many months of running a hundred miles a minute, my body gave way and forced me to slow down. I silenced myself, refraining from blogging and social media to gain perspective. And today, I feel much better. Now before you ask, “Where were you, Lisa? I know you were at the best parties. I know you were hanging with all the celebrities getting twisted off the alcohol and all that!!” Naw, not this time... In reality, I didn’t have to go ANYWHERE to have a good time. When you see these pics and the time lapse video of my neighborhood, you’ll know why. I’m going get a little personal on the blog this time, and bring you into my world. I’ve decided to show you where I’ve been the past couple of weeks…home.
