Walk your dog!
Random as fuck (and a little stoned) we're talking dogs. Specifically, dog walking. Having a dog is like having a kid. Don't call me an expert but I know a thing or two about each majestic beast. Most (to all) love to be outside, they eat, sleep, drink, be annoying, and repeat. You can't just leave the beast alone for a day when you're feeling frowny. They take time, energy, and care.
For the last three days, I've been lucky enough to take care of a Boston terrier. These little guys are hyper. My man "Toro" over here, "Bull" for my gringo/as out there, will not leave me alone (in the morning) till he gets outside. So, to my great pleasure, the last three days have been bomb full of walking! Yay....
I walk sometimes. I walk on Lincoln Rd., NW 2nd st., FIU, my house. That's all I got for now. Once you have a dog (or care for it) you actually get to see where you live. I go walking to the same ol' places each time I get outside. Who doesn't walk in their house, Lincoln and Wynwood? Once there's a dog around, you start having to walk everywhere. For the first time, I get to see the real community I live in.
Walking round the hood is SOMETHING. We went to capitals cause I'm feeling it. You get to see your neighbors, the plants, and reality. Whether that's a good or bad thing is up for grabs. I found out that I have actual genuine, friendly neighbors! Its a miracle. Trust me.
Whatever community you inhibit (as long as its Dade), we want you to take a walk. Look around for once, instead of hurrying to your next place of interest. Think about the things you see. Have you actually noticed it before? This question sparks my insides. It makes me want to say that you haven't, so, how in the fuck do you think you know anything about the world? If you can't see Dade for what it is, you can't see any other place. Its your homeland. Birth place, place of living, vacation home 11 months outta the year, I don't give a fuck.
Let's look around before we talk big things. We're tied to Miami one way or another, let's take advantage of it. UMAMI's here to talk small things first. How can we make Miami the cultural and artistic hub of Florida? The US? The world?
First things first, rep that UMAMI merch.
