No trespassing

DSC04487 “Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.” -Pope John VI


DSC04483 DSC04491 DSC04495 The way I grew up was to think that life started in your late 20s-30s, if only of course you've completed school, gotten married and had children. Ive always been at odds with this common African ideology of living life and adulthood. I personally believe in living your best life (pardon the Oprah pun) everyday you wake up and still find air in your lungs because your parents idea of the life you should be living is the life you're stuck with when they're dead and gone. Sorry to get all morbid and emo, but its the truth. DSC04497 DSC04499 DSC04502 DSC04518 DSC04513 Today's photographer was my brother Tony who somehow convinced my cousin rose(my usual photographer) and I to climb on the roof of our old church. I am glad that I was easily convinced, not only did the pictures turn out fantastic!! but it was an awesome experience seeing Yonkers from this height. I've lived in Yonkers for about half of my life and I have never seen it like this, EVER. I got to see some of my favorite places at the same (DAMN) time. It was amazing but I don't see myself climbing up there again anytime soon.
