I live in the outer Mission in an area lovingly dubbed "The Excelsior." It has two very different definitions: "higher; always upward" as well as "long, thin wood shavings used for packing breakable things or as stuffing in some furniture."

It started primarily as a documentary project a little removed from the situation... but I'm a partier, I love people, I want to figure them out, so now the scope has expanded to include the celebrations or the quiet times that occur in my Excelsior home as well.

The Canuxican says:

Stan Lee defines "excelsior" to mean "onward and upward to greater glory". I choose to use that definition instead of the packing peanuts one.
