Barrio Logan Descubierto

  1. 1. barrio logan libris descubierto
  2. 2. arrio logan descubierto How much time do you need to spend in a place before you “know it.” After visiting family in southern Italy several times, an uncle explained something important to me. He said, “You come for a few days and then you leave. You need to stay put for a while, be patient, and pass some time with us. That’s when you’ll experience what makes this place special.” My uncle was talking about the things that happen in the spaces between. Mornings in the Barrio, I pass an older guy usually sitting in a bright blue rocking car with a little kid climbing around him. We make eye contact and wave most days. On late afternoons, I hear the bell of an ice cream pushcart passing by our building. That bell helps me instantly adjust to the present – and sometimes I’ll stop what I’m doing and buy an ice cream. I see families in the Barrio more than usual, moms and dads in work clothes, walking kids to school. Here, ages mix together as a natural part of the neighborhood rhythm. The discoveries of Barrio Logan, like the people who live here are unpretentious and full of surprises. Descubierto is a celebration of a special neighborhood that rewards those with patience, curiosity, and an open heart. – Miriello Grafico Design: Miriello Grafico | 2009 Photography: Ron Miriello Artwork: Muralists, sign To order Barrio Logan Descubierto visit: painters, artists, vendors, craftspeople, and activists of Barrio Logan, CA
