"You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today. And then one day you find ten years have got behind you." -Pink Floyd
Nothing says authentic Miami like the Dade County Youth Fair. At one time or another every native frequents the fair which has been a fixture in the city for 22 years. I can’t believe it’s been around so long. I vividly remember coming here as a kid and taking it all in: the rides, the food, the performances and of course shopping. One of my first buys here were those infamous gummy bracelets Madonna made cool. My recent visit took me down deep into memory lane. So many faces, names, feelings and ideas that had been buried long ago in the past, resurfaced that day. I walked out feeling so inspired to write about "Time" and of course, Pink Floyd’s Time is just the perfect song to parlay my feelings about the topic. It’s really about living in the moment and truly savoring the people and places around you because one day they will be gone and so will you.
