X-Man.

Growing up in the inner city of Chicago with gangs,
violence & hopelessness, there wasn’t much 2 look
up 2 on the positive spectrum.

Options were extremely limited while diligently
searching for something truly impactful until one day
getting my hands on a small paperback
Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley
at a local thrift store….

A thrift store. Really? Out of all places. (lol)…

things surely happens the strangest of ways & of course a reason;)

This is a period when things began 2 open up with the ambition 2 read about history, culture & identity. Amazed at how such a book about a young man with a troubled past while facing the odds during the 1960’s could have such a massive impaction the world.

One thing that stood out about Malcolm was his motivation 2 teach self while incarcerated making him one of our prolific thinkers of that time.

If he could achieve such a task,
then what’s my excuse?

From that point, life drastically changed knowing despite
the condition in which lived, perseverance
with a bold fearless approach would
pay off 2 be so much more.Untitled

Knowing this, it become my duty
& responsibility 2 ensure that his life is remembered with a greater appreciation.

Hmmph…I wonder how would things be today
if someone like him ever existed for he wasn’t
just any ordinary man….he was..
X-man.

(Yep!)…

Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

RedBank.

I’ve never really had a chance 2
appreciate the sights around
the block so decided 2 stroll
through the RedBank.redbankpromoSince the day is nice why not enjoy it….right?

First off, made my way through
the central gym then
over 2 the local community center
& convience store where I’ve never laid a foot.
(no reason, just haven’t.)

Seems pretty ordinary, nothing special but with the trusty Canon
maybe…just maybe I could find a way 2 capture something kinda cool.

UntitledThis is really a far, far cry from Chicago’s
touch but no matter how common,
bringing it all together
seems worth the effort…
…besides, I “adapted” way 2 often as a shorty so this is nothing new;)

Sharing the perspective is what
it’s all about even here in this place we call
REDBANK.

Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

UntitledmOff again on another one of
those random Tammy moments.
This time we end up on a camping excursion
with kayaks & all.

Large bodies of water over 10 feet
makes me nervous so keeping
it on dry land is the very
best option here…Untitled789besides, who else could shoot the video?
(lol whatever).

Taking this trip was more so for
Miss Tammy who needed some much
needed time away from the noise.

Untitled1Funny 2 say, this particular spot is
known for weekend parties,
speed boats, beer & thangs so
quiet was occasional.

Regardless, it did the trick….

for now….

Peace!….with 2 fingers;)
