Spring has sprung!/¡Ya florecío la primavera!

The great Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden is the surefire sign that Spring is here.  Orchids are one of the most incredible flowers as they appear to cross the lines between species, and I am not talking Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) either!

Sharing the exhibition with my friends Iso and K, and chillin in the park and drawing with dear Deshonay is the best.

And I also think about being in the José Celestino Mutis Botanical Garden in Bogotá, Colombia and even though the orchid is Colombia’s national flower, it cannot compare to the abundance here in New York.  Talk about over development, even in flowers!

None the less, enjoy!

La Exhibición de Orquidias en el Jardín Botánico de Nueva York demuestra rotundamente que llego la primavera.  Las orquidias son unas de as más increibles flores en parecer cruzar las lineas entre especies, y no lo digo para hablar de Organismos Modificados Geneticamente (OMG)!


Compartiendo la exhibición con mis compas Iso y K y jangeando en el parque dibujando con Querida Deshonay es bakano.

Además pienso en el estar con mi primo Darío en el Jardín Botánico de Bogotá José Celestino Mutis y aunque la orquidia es la flor nacional de Colombia, no se puede comparar con la abundancia de Nueva York.  ¡Dique el super desarrollo, aun en flores!

De todos modos, pa’ aprovechar!

And, a word about so-called food deserts, there is lots of food in the desert, we might just have to be change our way of thinking to get at it, or we might have to be more in tune with the rest of nature.  I don’t get the food justice people who use this term, to refer to social relations that keep good healthy food away from poor and working class neighborhoods of color.  It is not the fault of the desert, the fault lies in greed and hatred against our communities in efforts to exterminate us, aka, racial capitalism. Didn’t succeed then, won’t now.

Y una palabrita sobre los supuestos desiertos de comida, aun la hay en el desierto, solo que puede que tenemos que tomar otra mentalidad para conseguirla, o quiza, tenemos que estar en más harmonia con el resto de la naturaleza.  No entiendo la gente que buscan la justicia alimentaria quienes usan este termino, cual usan para referirse a las relaciones sociales que alejan la comida buena y saludable de comunidades de color pobres y trabajadora.  No es culpa del desierto, la culpa la tiene la avaricia y el odio contra nuestras comunidades en aniquilarnos, o sea, el capitalismo racial.  Nunca lo logro, y no lo hará.
