The Bravest, The Boldest (short film)
Director: Moon Molson
Synopsis: Two Army Casualty Notification Officers arrive at a Harlem housing project to deliver some news to a woman about her son serving in the war in the Middle East.

Totaling 17 minutes in length, this movie won my vote for best short film and Sameerah Luqmaan-Harris for best actor. Why? Standing in the elevator with the two officers, all three of them heading to the 17th floor, the look on her face… no words exchanged, but she knew. The way her hands wrung nervously around the handle of the laundry basket she held. You felt that.

She’s performed at popular venues such as The Stage Miami, PAX, Grand Central, Hard Rock’s Piano Bar. Her first EP titled “Acoustically Speaking Vol.1″ is available on iTunes and Bandcamp.

Northwood Village: Green Market, Shops and Community
One of the oldest neighborhoods of West Palm Beach, Northwood Village was originally developed from 1920 through 1927, and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
What prompted this trip and post is a visit to Harold’s Coffee Lounge‘s first Green Market! :crowd goes wild: While the market is still developing and in its early stages, the potential is definitely there. Planned for the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month through December. Interested vendors can contact Liz Wisewood at wisewood88@yahoo.com. So, come for the market and stay for the shops, or stop for the shops and stay for the market.
