One day in 2016, I strolled through Santurce, San Juan, admiring the beauty of the city. This piece of street art caught my eye, so I caught it back with my camera. Then I realized that, in capturing a piece of the city’s art, I also captured a piece of its heart — a local man at work... Puerto Rico is a magical place. I visited for the first time in 2015 and have returned each year since. The people are full of soul and radiate a palpable energy of hope. The island, as a community, will pull through this tragedy. But they’ll do even better with the support of the global community.
Let us not fail our fellow humans, as our administration is failing us all. Check the link in my bio, if you want to support PR from wherever you are.
Still sending supportive vibes toward one of my favorite places on earth, where the purest of people love and live strong. ✊️Puerto Rico 🇵🇷
This lil’ guy and I became best friends 14 years ago. Over the years, he’s grown a lot of white hairs on his face and brought even more smiles to others’. Happy anniversary of your birth, @khanonearth. We’re real lucky to have you here. 🐾💚
This name was given to me at birth, by the mother of our family friend, Paladine Roye (aka, Pon-Cee-Cee), of the Ponca Indian tribe (Oklahoma territory).
This tattoo is to honor and remember Paladine, his mother, and his brother, may they Rest in Peace.
It also reminds me of the teachings that Native Americans have so humbly offered us, as guidance toward living harmoniously with one another and with Mother Nature.
May we one day soon heed their wisdom and live more consciously and compassionately as a global community. ✊️ Thank you @mekayaofficial, for your your art and your energy.🌀
