Every time you try to do something, fail at it.
Silvia Ramírez, Gabe Zichermann y Eduardo López
You don't need sight to have a vision
Culture is not something you can put away on a shelf or try to freeze in time. It's about having a muscle memory, practicing it, and bringing it back into the world. Something you keep alive so that you're able to pass it on to the next generation.
In choosing food [...] it's really about recovering tradition, it's about changing painful narratives of loss and erasure into something that can be healing and restorative.
Worry less about authenticity and more about, 'Is this food good? Where is it going to take us next?'
You have to be okay with looking at tradition in the eye and sometimes bending it to where you are and when you are.
Is there a way that our foods can actually be part of this healing?
The stories that we hear or the stories that others tell about us can have the power to harm us or have the power to heal us.
Culture isn't static. Culture changes. We all knows this, but the question is, 'Who also gets to decide what is tradition or not?'
There are things that we love, but don't always love us back. What do you do with that?
You can pick one strand of a food and find an entire history embedded into it.
[Ask yourself,] 'What are the sides of my identity that I've been hiding from or don't want to look at?'
What we eat and how we eat reflects our individual histories and also something wider and collective.
This was the first time I had ever seen Filipino food or Filipino anything in print.
Wherever we went, our kitchen reflected our changes, with a mixture of flavors from here and there.
Can you recover the things that you were supposed to forget?
It’s not a race for you to get to the finish line in real life.
Every day when you’re waking up, stay aligned with your own personal mission.
But something shifted for me that morning and I became obsessed with this idea of failure and dying on stage; and trying to prevent myself from dying on stage again.
The way you do one thing is the way you do all things.
How do we go in and mine that talent. That's what this place is all about. How do we rediscover their purpose in life and then empower that purpose in life.
One thing that I've discovered amongst people that battle some of these extreme mental-health problems is some of the most creative people that I've ever met on the planet.
We have the greatest designs on the planet. And when our men and women come into the community, they get to walk around like you and I get to walk around, and make choices about where they are going to live.
You have to open the door . . . The creatives are sitting here with ideas, simple ideas. How do we take those simple ideas and maybe explode them into a movement. That's what we believe has happened here.
We are building an RV park . . . to lift chronically homeless men and women up off the streets . . . people that most would consider the most despised and outcast in our community.
