I take a walk in the morning time
And this town is lit up by the golden light
Smaller the streets, bigger the smiles
Where the kids come out and color outside the lines
Ringing bells makes me feel so alligned
And time slows down to catch up with life.

I am home.

I’ll never find a home like you
Forever be in debted to you
All these years, i’ve stayed out of touch
But i am glad you haven’t changed much.

A short video about bulidOn, a movement that is empowering today’s youth to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. Videos mostly shot in Haiti, Chicago and New York. Few shots are used from previous buildOn videos. Visit to join the movement.

Urban Mind

by tamraaz on November 16, 2012

The concrete shapes, figures, lines, sea of people and of course being on time
pressure has filled up my mind as I complete my second year living in a city,
If I could see my mind’s visual, this is what it would look like.
