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

NEW GROUND

By now, the masks covering our faces not only protect, but  begin to hide features of simpler times. The memories of normality feel distant — and the slow return to regular life, the one that once pretended to move so flawlessly, seems even further out of reach.

As these blurred days search for clarity, we recognize flaws in our leaders, nations and even our own. And as we look deep inside ourselves in order to change, learn and plan for tomorrow; we find a strength, a force, and dreams previously brushed to the corner.

It's with this discovery that we rolled up our sleeves, pulled out cans of paint and worked non-stop to bring you our version of a flower shop - one where there is no steering wheel, tires or parking regulations, but where the spirit of our flower truck navigates through every square foot.

Today, we can only strive to be a waving hand through these trembling winds as together we find the strength to fasten our seatbelts, breathe and take off to a new unknown journey - crisp fresh air, beautiful flora.

Love and take care of one another.
Nemuel + Team LENITA
