“I hopelessly fall in love with a lot of people I meet.
The homeless man playing saxophone tirelessly in 96-degree heat for a few bucks. The checkout lady at Whole Foods who has purple hair, 14 nose rings and smells like 4 days ago who smiles invitingly and asks me to donate $1 to a local cause that seems to really matter to her.
The friendly elder-gentleman who has swept the floors of The Berkeley for 29 years and takes the time to tell me about his upbringing. That his grandma, “Mimo,” taught him about true work ethic. And how he thinks today’s parents just leave their kids in front of smartphones. And that he is inspired to do something about that cultural perversion. When I ask him if I can shake his hand, to thank him for sharing his wisdom, he almost instantaneously replies, “Go.”
Join me on life’s roller-coaster. Through community. Business. Music. I hope we can connect and help each other out in some way.”
