    With or without head tax cash, businesses make push for homelessness outreach on Broadway
    Even with the city's new head tax on the books, a group of Broadway businesses have decided not to wait for new funding streams to start - and their decision on how best to put the money to use shows how the priorities to the issue can differ in the distance between City Hall and Capitol Hill.

Pikes/Pines | A few local mothers we should admire

Sometimes I think we just need to slow down, and recognize that the organisms around us are just trying to survive. We may be self-centered as a species (which aren’t?), but we also have the ability to look beyond ourselves and have empathy. As I write this I have Vaux’s Swifts roosting in my chimney and to be quite honest, they are only partially welcome (imagine chirping birds in your bedroom wall in the middle of the night). This is exactly the point, these birds aren’t thinking about me or my need to wake up at five. They are just finding their own space, particularly where we’ve taken up far too much.
