Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror and Deliverance in the City of Love
 
Wow! This book was a great read! It had me engaged, fear with terror and amazing deliverance!

This city that I love so much, makes me proud where San Franciscans did pull together in the midst of terror, tragedy and triumph! It's not just politics, but it is the people that live here who make SF. The working class, the Pac Heights, the Mission, the diversity is what makes SF amazing! We can't forget the wonderful San Francisco 49ers! They helped San Franciscans to believe change was on it's way after the terror that occurred prior.
It is books like these that fill me with joy, continued optimisim in where we, anyone can make a change and be part of history. History teaches us a lot on how to work together as a city.
Most of you know me where I take pride in this city. I want this city to continue to excel, be part of change and make a difference in my community at large.

I highly encourage you to read this phenomenal book. David Talbot indeed cover his basis and research. Hats off to him considering he was born in Los Angeles. I'll let it slide David Talbott for you calling this city your city. This city belongs to all of us including those that venture out here to make a living and change!

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend These past three weeks I've been diggin' into my movin' groovin' music vault (aka cd's, cassette tapes and do have 1 8-track, LOL). In my late teens and twenties, I listened to lots of different music (I'm blessed that I was open to ALL music as it made me appreciate different genres). Since places, I love to go to such as libraries, events, and museums are closed and my friends quarantining I am finding myself playing music. Like I'm going back to my music. Back then, I used to listen to a cd or cassette tape from beginning to end and got to know the album real good. Here's one that I would play to death. #MikiHoward "Ain't Nobody Like You" is my favorite of all. I hope you enjoy it and dance to it. It's a piece of feel-good music. I will continue to share music with you all. Feel free to share your music favorites with me. :) It will keep us going. ~vanessa ross

Proud to be a Native San Franciscan

The past six months (or should I say years living in Dogpatch District) I've been blessed with amazing experiences I had not expected. As some of you know me well enough, I stay active in Dogpatch community since I moved here almost 14 years ago.  I believe the universe wanted me to live on this side of town in San Francisco before anything was really here.  I thought (and still do) volunteering every year for almost 13 years, is something great to do for the community and the neighborhood I live in. I've seen it grow and grow, almost like a child like where you want to protect it, defend it and let it grow to something so wonderful. Really, it's not me, it's the community that I fed off of over the years because of their passion, drive and determination in protecting this area - Dogpatch Historic District. Summer 2009, I was elected to be on board of Dogpatch Neighborhood Association as Member Coordinator/Corresponding Secretary. Re-elected last October 2015 f
