Lawson transforms her home/studio into a site for engaging passersby to partake in the ritual of sharing food in a neighborly fashion. Like following the cartoon curling steam to a pie cooling on the windowsill, Maggie invites locals (and not-so-locals) to approach her window threshold to share and partake in the specialties of the neighborhood. She invites locals to pull up a chair and reflect on the past and dream for the future of this little corner of North Oakland. The takeout experience is complete with sidewalk-scape transformed with outdoor seating.

The circle of life, embedded within one town.
This visual poem brings to life Pythagoras’s theory that the soul moves from human to animal to vegetable to mineral in its evolutionary journey. Wordlessly, the film follows an elderly Italian goat herder as he makes the remarkable transition. Director Michelangelo Frammartino captures the essence of everyday life in the Italian countryside as the man transforms into a baby goat, a giant tree and a lump of coal.
