As part of the California Council for the Humanities, David Greenberger visited meal sites around East L.A. recording conversations with more than two dozen elderly residents of Los Angeles. The project is a multiyear initiatve to uncover the personal and community stories that create a portrait of contemporary California by exploring the lives of elderly Mexican-Americans. 

The stories explore universal themes: reflection in old age, the dignity of the individual, and the bonds of community, family and faith. These are first-person portraits of ordinary citizens often overlooked in mainstream media. These are stories about the ways we live our lives, the things in which we believe. At the core they value the heart in the human voice, the evocative nature of sound, the importance of subtext, and the art of storytelling.
