Turning the Spotlight on Community Leader Drew Schlosberg

For the first time in 25 years, I’ll be turning the tables and the spotlight by interviewing host Drew Schlosberg on his San Diego Union-Tribune Community Spotlight Show. Although I’ve been a frequent guest over the years representing Mission Fed and our involvement with the community, this is a special opportunity for me to ask Drew his thoughts about community engagement, cultivating a spirit of giving and Drew’s passion for making San Diego such a special place to live, grow and give back. Join this lively conversation and log in Wednesday, May 25 from 10:30-11am PST at

Go to the day of the interview and click on Studio B to hear the show “live.” After the interview, the interview will be available on the channel’s website. Listen, learn and share the love of San Diego!

The Beauty Of Painted Stairs Around The World

Abandoning the flat canvas of buildings, some street artists take to the stairs, transforming them into magnificent works of urban art. It doesn’t matter whether it’s with paint, plants, mosaics or wallpapers – the end goal is beauty, shared and enjoyed by all. This phenomenon is not a localized one and is happening all around the world. These are 20 of the world’s most stunning stairs:

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we have learned
here. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and
the acceptance of love back into our hearts.”
