Happy New Year!




















True talk: bringing in the New Year with Abiodun of the Last Poets always gives me the feeling that this year will be chock full of art. Last time I rang in the New Year with them, I had an amazing artistic year. This man can throw a party, Abiodun's New Years jam has been going on for 27 years! As soon as you walk in the door, he's there greeting people, telling folks to help themselves to food (peas and rice is on the menu, of course!) and insisting that you make yourself at home. At this party we're counting down on the Djembe drum, we're reciting poetry and of course, we are dancing under the requisite blue light. He lives on Morningside Heights, so the view from his home is spectacular: you can see all of Harlem! There's beautiful of art hanging from the walls. And, people are wearing art: everyone's decked out. And, I'm not going to talk about the brothers at the party, lets just say they're a work of art, too!


Create art, love and live!

Happy New Year!
