-by Sandra Simmons


Over the years, many aspects of living in the city have been explored. Enjoy reading the transformation of San Diego Downtown and the views of its residents.


What gifts will you give?

Are we planning the future or our demise?

Have we lost our way?

Will the future ever become the present?

Do we please some to receive nothing?

What kind of a community do we want?

Do we design by choice or by fate?

Is it time to pay the dime?

Isn’t every step an experience?

What is the word “of” our street?

What if we couldn’t scrape and reshape?

Isn’t life’s ripple both effect and affect?
