My neighborhood is composed of one main street, a street full of memories and different wonderful people, Centinela Ave. Most of the people who live here would call this neighborhood the “Centinela Block.”
Throughout the day many things happen here at various times of the day. Early mornings, this street is quiet and peaceful. At the time of sunrise it can be foggy and chilly. Not a lot of people walk here and not many cars pass by this early.
When the sun is out around eight in the morning the day starts. It seems like at that time the whole world wakes up. You can hear sirens from ambulances that pass by like lightning. At this time you can hear and see happy children walking to school with their mothers. Hundreds and thousands of cars pass by with many different faces.
By afternoon things are calming down. At this time I can hear different types of music from people who are now relaxing after a long day at work. I can hear blenders and microwaves turned on from my neighbors. Televisions on and children playing. Moms screaming and dogs barking.
At night things go back to normal. Everything is quiet and peaceful. All I hear from my neighbors houses are showers being turned on of people who are getting ready to go to bed. People who are done with their day and are ready to rest. Tomorrow everything will start over again. All the things I see, hear, and smell throughout the day I wouldn’t change for anything because all those things are what form “The Centinela Block”

Sun Worshipers are you ready for some rain? Ok, maybe not.
Angels love the sun, and we are all livin it up in this 80 degree Endless Summer, right?
So…What was the orange and yellow rainbow everyone was talking about last Wednesday?
Sounds sick, not the good kind of sic.
Call me kooky, but I’m partial to the five color, traditional rainbow. Who wants a bunch of McDonald’s arches-looking-things floating around in the air…it’s unfair advertising for unhealthy air AND food.
So, in the light and energy spectrum, the older the stuff IS, the more red it becomes.
The cleaner and newer and fresher, the farther away from red it gets…e.g. green/blue/white
I’m kinda thinking an old-azz rainbow ain’t a good sign.
What is happening with our upper layers?
What’s with the crystallized lines in the sky, that we never really hear about, but see often?
No skywriting or hearts here, just random lines, everywhere.
Why do so many people, young and old alike, seem to be getting cancer all of a sudden?
There must be something we can do, or can stop doing.
At least, we can start being kind to one another.
After all, we are all people. We can’t help ourselves. But yet, we CAN help ourselves.
This month, the month of the Harvest, and the celebration of All Hallow’s Eve,
may be a good time to reflect EARLY and before the holiday seasons are on us …
and before we get caught up in what to get who, when, where, and in this economy — how.
Consider acts of kindness. Giving of yourself. Stop the madness and the dying rainbows.
Can we begin to wake up, and honor Mother Earth, each other, and ultimately, ourselves?
Even a little bit may go a long way, in trying a pattern break. Something new, like kindness.
