Memory Note

Memory Note:
planta firma is the power of place
by Akin Osho Bosede

​Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia is building an expanded archive of cultural memory that includes multiple histories, re-place-ing the established with new narratives and understandings. Notes consider place via the street, sound, food, trees, and other portals.

memory is intimacy is intercourse (communication) thus innermost touch a hint of The Sublime Pleasure The Constant Resurrecting

it is has been intimated that in every instance that elders are allowed to leave without younger generations having gleaned (harvested) the seeds of the fruit of their experiences by committing them to memory for further planting it is like libraries being burned or abandoned and neglected

the place of that which once was while it still is


that inattention, carelessness, omission of interest a fertile field left uncultivated

uncured, un-cared for, unfocused

with no centering fix


a subliminal hint at the foundation stone centered in and at the threshold for the raising up (supporting; establishing) of every revelation on Place (Identity)

Here has always (in all ways) been The Beyond Finite Condition of Now

Identity will perpetually be All-Inclusive

a passing conjugation on how we frame words of Place spelling out for a spell

transient gesture at possessing Time

memory of Place is There to serve a purpose fulfilling The Point

tall tellers in the midst working signification

signs too often lost in the forgetting

Equality has always been meant for the elevated telling of a say

a note for centering every crossing of roads and passing through every threshold

dide Orisha!!!
