Anybody who knows me well, knows that I have a fine appreciation for “High Twinkle Factor” (HTF).  They also know that on a day-to-day I live in the world of “high comfort factor”(hcf).  Elastic is a godsend.  Cotton is cool.  Birkenstocks were made for folks with feet who work for a living.  If you are […]

1. Saw The Martian today.  Forget that I am slightly smitten by Matt Damon.  Forget that it is in 3D.  Forget that family and friends works at JPL.  I would go see the movie again.  Wait, change would to will. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ue4PCI0NamI 2.

Latino Heritage Month is always pretty busy for me.  It seems that designating a month, or a day, with a particular name of title helps people think about thing differently.  First example that comes to mind is TBT on Facebook.  Who would have thought those three initials would establish a habit that is followed occasionally […]

Tonight I’ll be on the panel following the performance of  at the Pasadena Playhouse.  I’ll be joining Josefina L√≥pez, Dr. Cynthia Olivo, and Seema Sueko.   We’ll be discussing how the play relates to Pasadena and Southern California.   I believe there’ll be time for questions from the audience.  I’m especially looking forward to that […]

Truth is she is that and, being a renaissance woman, she is so much more.  She also paints, writes poetry, performs, designs, and is a mother of two boys.  Oh, and she is the founder and artistic director of Casa 0101.  The theater is space in […]

I’m back.  It’s been a while so please bear with me.  I’m afraid there may be grammatical and syntactical goblins lurking. Ignore them; they’ll go away soon enough. So many ways one could read the title.  My response was influenced by the play, “Real Women Have Curves”.  The current production is directed by Seema Sueko […]
