But after the ashes comes the new. Rebirth. San Francisco took a major catastrophe and came back bigger and brighter than ever. Maybe the lavish personal excess curbed down a bit after the 06′ quake and fire, but maybe it should have been anyway. Maybe not too much different from today.
Well, here is my homage to the city my ancestors helped build and re-build and that i have had the privilege to call home for almost the last two decades and that laid the landscape to my relationship with my great aunt and one of my dearest departed family members. This city is me. It is what makes me feel like i am home. It is what i identify my identity with. It is what created the person that sits here now. It is what drives my research about my ancestry and allows me to try and imagine walking in the footsteps my for family did. Thank you lineage for allowing me this adventure and quest to find out not only who you are but where i came from and who i am.
Here is to the spirit that fules rebirth and connection. And rebuild they did! And rebuild
we always will!
