One of my favorite things about Miami is how in tune the city and culture are with the arts. Whether it be the song and dance Rene greets each morning as he plays his congo drum on South Beach, or it be the soulful and colorful foods that aromatize the air; Miami is full of flavor and appreciation for the diverse blend of sights and sounds that have given this city a unique art scene of its own. As I walk through Wynwood I feel like I’m walking through a Hemingway poem. The murals are more than murals; they’re voices of an artist and a city that celebrates artistic expression. I feel liberation, inspiration and a sense of good confusion, if there could ever be such a thing. I can see why Ernest loved Florida; I do as well. It only makes sense for these sights to be accompanied by some words of wisdom from e.h. himself.
There is freedom awaiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And if you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?
