Wynwood Whispers

17 May

I go to the Wynwood District daily, to grab a guava and cheese pastry (the best I’ve ever had, and only 50 cents!) at the Cuban bakery on NW 28th St. and NW 2nd Ave. or to read and enjoy a beer in Lester’s. (I am looking forward to Lester’s One Year Anniversary Party which is Saturday May 26th. I couldn’t find details online, but the in-store flyer mentions a daytime BBQ, live bands and DJs, and drink specials all day long. Mark your calendars, should be a great time!)

So, yesterday. The skies were gloomy. The streets were nearly empty and, coupled with eerie silence, the whole thing made for a reverential experience. I took pictures of moments that inspired me, and then married them to quotes that seem fitting. I hope you enjoy the pairings as much as I do.

“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates.”–Thomas Szasz, well-known social critic of the moral and scientific foundations of psychiatry, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at the State University of New York

“If I wasn’t making mistakes, I wasn’t making decisions.”– Robert W. Johnson, founder of Johnson & Johnson

“Flops are part of life’s menu and I’ve never been a girl to miss out on any of the courses.”-Rosalind Russell, Golden Globe and Tony award-winning American actress

“The inmates are ghosts whose dreams have been murdered.”- Jill Johnson, about Bellevue Hospital’s psychiatric wards

“Nothing happens until something is sold.”

“There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.”- Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
