My life, like a spiral staircase, has core issues that I seem to circle repeatedly, but each time from different angles and levels. The chapters in this book are some of those core issues and what I have learned as I circled them.

We are often so immersed in the demands of our everyday lives, that we have little time to step back and contemplate those daily issues that catch us all up, entangling and complicating our lives before we know it. Here I look anew at such age-old dilemmas as falling in love; money and what it cannot do for you; playing it safe or taking risks; how a defeat can really be a victory; aging, beauty, sex, clothes, food and friendships; then turn them upside down and inside out to find rich meaning, texture, and new possibilities.

Carol L. MacAllister, M.S.W.
Writer, artist, lover of history and the people who make it.
With the age of computers and rapidly evolving data storage systems, historians no longer have the resources of personal letters, journals, and diaries that have been the mainstay of historical research into the personal lives of citizens. My goal was to secure a written record of those who did so much to save the places and institutions that are now taken for granted in the City of St. Paul, MN.
This collection of 25 stories, told by 10 citizens, ages 35 to 95, some notable public figures, and some private citizens, paint a picture of the St. Paul that was and is to this day.
This collection is not published but resides in the archives of the Ramsey County Historical Society and the Minnesota Historical Society. It can be read only in their reading rooms.
