Reflection on the Birth of a Nation

It is not in the cloud anywhere so the poem is elusive at the moment. It was a bit of a study of Thomas Paine and my questioning of 'What America Means to Me"? The answer I recall as "It is both sides of the coin - that I come to make - that makes America Great. "

Now I am not sure how I would define both sides. Instead, I share an image and the phrase currently on my heart.…

A Food Hall That’s All About Opportunity. And Food.

When La Cocina Municipal Marketplace opens this coming spring in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, it will be the country’s first women-led food hall and and the first to take on the innovative role of serving up affordable, healthy food to longtime local residents (as well as to foodie visitors). It also provides manageable rents and business opportunities for the mostly women of color entrepreneurs who will be running the culinary show and who see food as a language connecting people, places and culture. Plus, with support from LISC, La Cocina has activated a long-vacant post office, transforming a former crime hot spot.
