L.A. TImes LENITA Flower Truck in Los Angeles
It’s been almost 4 years since LENITA first graced the streets of Los Angeles. From the beginning, the goal was to celebrate the city and its people.

I chatted with Lisa Boone from the L.A. Times about LENITA’s history and journey so far, and the outcome was a sharp reflection of our mission. To be commemorated by our city’s most prestigious news publication is the completion of one of many full circles yet to come.

This is a celebration of all the places we parked, all the faces we’ve met and all the new ones we’re about to encounter — thank you for being part of our circle!

FLOOD THE POLLS


Four years later and we find ourselves back at the voting polls. This time, our faces covered and the people in front of and behind us are six feet apart. This distance between us not only marks our current times, but reflects the gap existing in politics; too often making change feel way out of reach, and perilous.

We can't ignore that our baby steps have brought us some victories, and at times, it's given us hope that the warm ray of equality will eventually touch every shoulder. But as we stand underneath the clouds created by our current leaders, we thirst for rain to brush off this dust, so we can leap forward.

And when we say rain, we mean a downpour. Drops thick enough to cleanse our spirits, letting our unique differences and beliefs shine once again. May we flood the polls, and regardless of the outcome this November 3rd, let us continue to be each other's lifejackets.

See you at the polls and see you on the streets,
Nemuel + Team LENITA

GREEN LIGHT


Since March, we’ve been stuck at an intersection observing the world struggle to stand by. While we waited for a green signal, we witnessed everything from mass uncertainty to the marching for justice inspired by Breonna Taylor and George Floyd.

In preparation to hit the gas pedal, we cracked our windows, only to find a heavy breeze standing still, ash floating in the air, and crosswalks once asleep - awoke again. Our hearts are heavy, hands untrained and a global pandemic still visible in every attempt to return to life; so why go back?

We return for a recharge of everything paused, for the hope to spread beauty, to revisit familiar places, faces we've missed. And even though normal will forever have new meaning, we go back looking for signs to affirm that we're going to be ok.

But as we buckle up and retrain our muscles, one thing remains the same; the fear of what the next intersection holds. All we can hope to believe, is that as long as we have each other, as long as we continue to drift forward, we’ll find courage.

See you on the streets,Nemuel + Team LENITA
