If you had been born at a different time you could have been bussed to Ingraham (High School) and you would never, ever have met Bruce Lee.

Looking back, I had an open attitude from my experiences at Meany and Garfield with different races and just different people, different lifestyles. There were people who came from very poor and very wealthy areas to Garfield, so there were so many experiences. Having that contact with all these different types of people and their families just makes one more open to experiences. I feel very fortunate that way.


You know when something like this happens to you, you lose your husband, or you lose a child (pause) you think you’re alone in the world in your suffering. Then you find out that this has happened to other people and you never knew that about them.

This interview is now available in the book, We Lived Here, published by Chin Music Press:

About Me

Seattle, WA, United States
I am not a professional photographer nor a trained journalist. At community meetings, it became clear that many of us don’t know each other. We haven’t heard each other’s stories and don't know each other’s circumstances. This is my attempt to give a few people the chance to tell their story, to talk about our community, to say their piece in peace. As such, comments have been disabled. The views and opinions expressed here are those of each narrator and do not necessarily reflect the position of views of the CentralAreaComm.blogspot blog site itself.
