"But, I still hadn’t answered Cal’s question, “What #mayor?” The mayor was closing in. I held Cal’s hand in the hope that he would stand still and stay with me. I said, 'This is our mayor.'"

"On my first day of school, she walked me down Lafayette Avenue, across Grant Street to my new school. The gravitas of the building came into view - balustraded balconets, cartouches, medina sandstone. I recoiled. She joked that they may or may not release me from the tower at the end of the day. She left me alone at the spiked iron fence."

"When the weather warmed, we put a big cardboard sign in our front window. One corner had the number 25 written on it. The next corner had a 50, the next a 75, and the last corner had a 100. We would turn the sign around so the iceman knew how many pounds of ice we needed for that day." - Lesa Quale Ferguson​ from The Swan Street Italians: Letters from Nana.

"There are many different types of #mothers -- grand, great-grand, birth, original, first, second, adoptive, step, single, divorced, God, fairy-god, nature, biological, in-law, lesbian, @#$%@, earth, deceased, stay-at-home, working, like a -- mother. And, don’t forget those gay fathers who are father-mothers or any of those beloved mother figures. Motherhood is at once primally pervasive and wholly unique." - Lesa Quale Ferguson #MothersDay2017 #Mothersday

"We reveled in the remarkable changes Buffalo has experienced over the 16 years that I’ve lived here: the new walkway along the breakwall at the foot of Tifft, the light display on the silo at +Canalside Buffalo, the cherry blossoms at the Buffalo History Museum, open art classes at +Locust Street Art, and fine dining with a unique view of the city at Buffalo Proper." +Lesa Quale Ferguson #VisitBuffalo #vibewithus +Buffalo Citybration #enews +BuffaloVibe http://mailchi.mp/buffalovibe/citybration-top-picks-visiting-buffalo

READ MY LATEST POST ON +BuffaloVibe a day before it is in the +Buffalo Citybration newsletter
"When I was a teen, Buffalo’s greatest tourist attractions were robust home cooked meals with a galley-full of aunts, uncles, cousins, greats and grands; tradeable Sheriff's cards (without photos) for easy underage drinking; a park for kissing boys from which the police never kicked us out after dark; a color TV that came with a slightly older aunt who shared my soap opera addiction; and, a somewhat senile great-grandmother who would come into the living room to repeat that there was nothing new on the TV, only 'repeats, repeats, repeats.'"

"In April, my mother-in-law Louisa and I would pull a wagon loaded with four empty bushels down by the old Larkin Building. Behind the buildings were fields with great patches of tender wild dandelions. We picked four bushels of dandelions, set them in the wagon, and pulled it through the muddy field and along the cobblestone roads, often stopping to right the toppling bushels." #vibewithus #foraging #larkin #SwanStreet #ItalianImmigrants +BuffaloVibe https://www.buffalovibe.com/articles/dining/swan-street-italians-foraging-for-greens-in-april

Busting out great sermons -

"God does in fact
have a best dream for you, and for me,
and it never dies either.
It may change as we change,
from 16 to 35 to 90,
but it keeps ripening.
Our task, whatever age we are
and whatever our current capacities,
is to bring that dream out
from the fog of subconscious
into the light of wakefulness.
God’s best dream for us
wants to burst into the open air.
God’s best dream for us
wants to breath in the light of day
and you are the only one
in all of Creation –"
