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.

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