130. More and more, I think the most important work we can do is local.
Local like, on our block. We have been divided and conquered to the point where we don't know our neighbors and may even be afraid of them.

If we're going to turn this country around, that's the first thing, imho, that must change

I've tried hard to get to know my neighbors, all of them, including my homeless neighbors that sleep at the edges of Golden Gate park. This is my community, where my heart is. I will not be afraid to walk in my neighborhood at any hour because this is my home.

There is, right now, a bunker mentality here. If I went door to door asking for cans, I believe my neighbors would be afraid -- maybe because their own situation is too nearly similar, too precarious too. I have to think about this.

And, yes. I would be grateful for the opportunity to do SOMETHING if someone else were to ask me. But then, I'm an out there, extended family Latina type who puts family and community first.

There's a lovely kind of freedom that comes when you figure out what is important to you.


Thanks for your feedback, LibraLiz. I really needed it.
