The Ripple Effect

A million scary bugs hide in the cracks of these walls.

They wait in the dark and when they think that I’m asleep

they drop into bed.

The scariest bugs are mosquito hawks; they have wings as
sharp as knives.

I pull the blanket over his my head and dream about angels.

They are naked and very pretty

Their nakedness makes me tingle

Dad says the angels tingle like that too.

Suddenly a spider as big as a hand lands on my bed!

But Dad says hush now and think about heaven.

Sleepers

There are times when all the world’s asleep,
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man.
Won’t you please, please tell me what we’ve learned
I know it sounds absurd
Please tell me who I am.

A Chat with the San Francisco Women’s Building

Art by Rob Goldstein
The Women’s Building

I call this post a ‘chat’ with the San Francisco Women’s Building because when I view the mural I feel as if I’m in a conversation about community, personal responsibility, a positive vision of the future, and the joy of creative collaboration.

Creativity

MaestraPeace Mural was painted in 1994 by Bay Area muralists: Juana Alicia, Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Meera Desai, Yvonne Littleton and Irene Perez.

The mural was fully cleaned and restored in 2012 by the original muralists assisted by a new generation of muralistas.

The San Francisco Women’s Building is the first community center in the country that is owned and operated by women.

The Mission of the Women’s Building is based on the premise that all women and girls have the right to safe, joyous and creative lives; lives in which they have the right of self-determination.

BEING STRONG 

“Don’t be afraid of your fears.

They’re not there to scare you.

They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”
