I Carry Your Heart With Me

Happy Anniversary Babe.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in

my heart) i am never without it(anywhere

i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing,my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) i want

no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)

and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows

higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Love in Africa – The Couple

We have so many photos of the beautiful wedding we produced in Rwanda, but some of my favorites are these three captured on my iPhone. Go figure and thank you Instagram. These photos were taken during the Lobola, a century old tradition where the groom pays the family of his fiancée for her hand in marriage, sort of like the European dowry custom. The Lobola was followed a few days later by an American-style wedding, which was inspired by this inspiration board. Major!

Epic II by Overtown Music Project

I fall in love with Miami [again] every time Overtown Music Project hosts an event. People from all walks of life together on the dance floor dancing, singing and dreaming of an even better Miami. Music has that power. Our annual gala at LIV Fontainebleau Miami Beach this past weekend celebrated Overtown’s storied past and raised money for our new program that will bring a free, jazz-based music curriculum to Frederick Douglas Elementary School in Overtown. We were treated to the likes of the legendary 18-piece Melton Mustafa Orchestra, DJ Maseo of De La Soul, Javier Garcia, G Love and the fine musicians who once played in the heyday of Overtown like Joey Gilbert, Bobby Stringer and Mel Dancy. Christian Slater and his pretty fiancé Brittany definitely had a dandy ol’ time. Oh and Rico Love and his crew were appreciating the vibe also. Yeah, pretty EPIC. Thanks Gesi Schilling Photography for the great photos and a big shout out to my fellow Overtown Music Project Board members for creating an unforgettable evening.

Queen – Longombas

Jean, our driver in Rwanda, was awesome. He patiently drove us through the city and country over the course of several days looking for last minute items for the wedding.  I remember whenever Track No. 11 on his CD player came on, I just beamed. What was that song?  Sounded like Kompa, was in English, but Rwandese? I found it and I’ll share.
