A Pasadena Latina

The sun has just risen over the urban treeline.  I sit in the shed and enjoy the shifting lights and shadows.  Not new and novel at a moment. The morning breeze shifts in pace and temperature.  The shadows of the ceanothus and nopal shift, too.   What had been a wall of solid color is […]

Chuy Prius (2005-2017)

Last Friday we donated our 2005 Prius to KPCC.  He was 12 years old and had 172, 172 miles when he quit working.  James and I miss him already; for all the memories we were able to make while we drove him.   Poem for a Prius: or I’ve Never Owned a Car Without a […]

The writing is in the shed

The writing is in the shed

Who knows where an idea starts?  Is it seeing a cool Tiny House in Portland?  A gorgeous mobile home in Carlsbad?  The playhouse at my Nina’s home in Highland Park?  Whatever the source, in January I found myself seriously looking into a shed that would become a writing shed. We ended up at SoCal Sheds […]

Indoor Stylin’

Over the past few months James and I have been scurrying around the house.  I think the wedding led us to some hardcore nesting at the house. January was spent looking at old videos of Casa Martinez and then cataloguing more than 150 episodes.  I was proud of the work that our team produced.  Many […]

Oh, what a memorable birthday day; no- weekend; no – week

Oh, what a memorable birthday day; no- weekend; no – week

I turned 64 this past Saturday.  Thanks to so many I had a chance to celebrate this fact for almost a week. Last Wednesday I gave myself permission and enjoyed a day at the beach with friend Kathee. James had oral surgery a while ago and was going to have stitches removed on Friday, so […]
