"People ask me why I spend so much time on the streets. I tell them this is where I grew up. These streets are dirty, but they're hope, and they're beautiful to me. The bums know about the beauty of it. The bums love it like it's their own skin. The ruddy dust from the streets, the mud in the parks where they sleep, sunk deep in the lines in their foreheads, jammed up under their fingernails The sun and the dirt mixed up with their sweat and the booze. All the dirt. It's the earth. If you can't see the beauty in the dirt then I feel sorry for you. And if you can't see why these streets are special, then just go home already."-- Excerpt from the unpublished autobiography of Mazie Phillips-Gordon
