Last year I was a part of a team tasked with assessing this small and unassuming green space in #oldcityphilly. As the urban anthropologist, I conducted a spatial ethnographic analysis of behavior - how people used the space, who was there, and who/what wasn't present despite it's potential. Having formed a connection with this patch of grass, I couldn't help but stop by and give it a little love yesterday. Here's hoping the district and National Parks Department will move forward with our proposed plans to turn this space into a true civic commons so that it can become a place for the community to come together and just be.
And just like that, another year has gone by. 📆 And just like that, I’ve turned 25. 😱 Thank you to everyone who has celebrated my birthday with me on three separate occasions this week: Saturday night at Congee Village/Peachy’s; Sunday morning at the NYBG; a Wednesday work afternoon at Theory (with a Barbie-themed cake?!). 🍲🌺🎂Thank you to everyone who has touched my life in every possible way: childhood friends, college classmates, colleagues from my retail days...everyone whom I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Truly, y’all have made my life on Earth such an experience thus far and for that I raise a glass. Cheers! 🛸🌎🥂🥳 #birthday#birthdayboy#25thbirthday#thebig25#25#congeevillage#nybg#theory#barbie#latergram
Sometimes, you just catch these moments when life is good & laughter is loud & music is playing.
Sometimes, not everything has to be so complicated, & you can just smile because these humans you’re with will only be with you for a little while & they’re wonderful in all their quirky humanness.
Архивное. В нормальном качестве найти не могу, но пусть хоть так. Пятиэтажка с амазонитами 💚 В детстве пару штук ключом отколупала, хотя они и под ногами часто валялись ( это Север, детка 😁) и внимания на них никто не обращал, но отковырять же интереснее )) #latergram#архив#амазонит#manythingsbing
