Born a California girl, raised by four older siblings while my parents worked their butts off providing for all of us, including the three babies that were born after me. My parents were restaurant owners. They survived two bankruptcies, the first caused by tribalism, the second by economic changes in their town. My parents loved us profoundly, every one of us little freaks. My Dad died on June 10, 2001, before the towers were struck. That sight would have broken his heart. He was the only one in his family who survived the battle and occupation of Hong Kong. He had to see both of his parents and all of his siblings die one by one due to poisoned water, starvation and lack of medical care. My Mom is still alive, she's turning 84 soon, and she knows we all love her and that she raised a fine bunch of bananas who feed the world with love and silliness. We are a long line of hard-working, honest peasants. Immigrants, all of us. Pilgrims on this beautiful, green and blue Earth.
