Trains & Tears - Triumph in Tallahassee #ihearttally

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

This day BB truly lived in extremes

From the joy of hope to the heartbreak of tyranny,and back again. That was this dia. 

It has been 10 años since the passenger trains had come to Tallahassee. As a matter of fact My Eldest and La Tata were on that last train, and they loved it. Right afterwards, Hurricane Katrina came through and crashed that line; it was never re established.  Now the people of Tallahassee are rallying for the return, and that rally, she was good.

Not a bad turnout considering it was 2 pm on a workday. Babushka was proud to be part of the turnout, of people who cared about their community and what happens to it.  A few hours later it was to happen again, but on the flip side.

Intimate. Intense. Sensing the Seering Sincerity of Pain and Pride.  The telling of the past, with its tortures, and its survival. How today we still can feel all of it.  How words and song still keep it, and us, alive.

Powerful and potent, the stories as well as the players. It was standing room only and sold out each night of performance. Thankfully they will have another performance again on March 15, and if you are in Tallahassee, or can make it up here for Slave Narratives, BB highly recommends it.

En realidad it was an emotionally charged dia,pero if you think BB wished otherwise, JU SO FONII!!! True, the last portion was heavy in its history, but upon reflection it heightened the promises and potential of today's Tallahassee. From the days of slavery, to present times where our elected officials are diverse yet united in many issues. The day was powerful on all levels and very indicative of the offerings and  mindset of Tallahassee. We are very conscious of our history, the good and the bad, embrace it,and then share it with those around us. Ojala you get to visit soon and see why Babushka dice


Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

P.S. BB will definitely be writing more about the Slave Narratives- Memoirs of Captivity in a future post.  For now you can follow Midtown Entertainment Group on Feibu and see all the wonderful things they have going on and in the works.
