Pamela Gerstein, BISS List and woman extraordinaire [She was “23” on the tape recorder]
Twenty-three? That’s my lucky number! That’s perfect. I am thankful for all of my friends and family and support in my community that has gotten me through the last year. I’m thankful for Linda Kelly!
Happy, street person
I am thankful for plants because they are the elegance of beauty and nature’s natural order. I’m very appreciative of plants in 2016 and in the present moment.
Jim Kirk, artist, local resident, born and raised San Francisco
I’m thankful that I have work, work that I actually enjoy, I’m thankful that we’re all still here. Can I think about this before you ask me? [NO]. Dammit. Has to be in the moment. Okay, well, it’s hard to say … thankful for the way politics are going? How can you be thankful for all of that? But I’m feeling that everybody’s waking up, that there’s an awakening going on. I’m thankful for the awakening and the apocalypse and all that good stuff.
