Dusk fell and pie was eaten. Hearts, song, music and words wove into four-part revolutionary harmony and we celebrate the birthday of a man who gave his 39 years of life to ensure our country became what it claimed it was.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." -- MLK
MY PRIVATE CONEY presents IT WAS HER NEW YORK, the short stories that accompany the work-in-progress video and photo collection of the same name (myprivateconey.com - media link - IT WAS HER NEW YORK). The stories and the media explore the tender rubble that holds both my mother, Florence's and New York's soul as one disappears into old age and the other into gentrification. All are real observations and/or experiences with very little tall-tale telling.
Except when it makes the story better.
