I didn't notice the San Pedro Street trees at first. The jacarandas are blooming, and Little Tokyo is stealing the show, ringed by the jacarandas' purple curtain. The trees on San Pedro street are not in blossom. They do not tower over the people on the sidewalks or reach up to the windows, but these trees on San Pedro Street are giants of possibility. I learned about them from a student of mine at the DWC. A tree saved her life once. You can watch for her story on the Trees on San Pedro Street Project blog.
