Patterns within patterns

If one observes nature and our human existence, you cannot but help notice patterns. Every level of our reality showcases a basic building block of patterns as in math an music. All forms of art are nothing but patterns.

It is in human nature to recognize patterns; some are visible and some are invisible to our reality.

It's a cold January on New Year's day morning, in the early 60’s. An African-American father and his young son wait for the 54 bus that takes them to the Broad Street Subway Line. This will transport them to City Hall station located in Center City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

 

After twenty minutes the father and son finally arrive at thstation. As the train roars off to the next stop the sounds of music and the roar of a crowd has replaced the sound of trains.  The sounds frighten his young son. His father comforts the boy with hug and reassuring words of encouragement. The father embraces his son and begins to carrying him up the long stairway to the exit.

The Max Levy building

On Saturday the 26th, myself a group of interested community supporters was invited by Gray Area Philly to explore the Max Levy Building. The build is located in lower Germantown near the Wayne Junction train station. Constructed in 1902 at 240 Roberts Avenue, when Max Levy moved from Arch Street in center city Philadelphia. In 2005 Max Levy Autograph move to a new building in Byberry East Industrial Park.
