A Pasadena Latina


Candidate Forum

Candidate Forum

So I promised something last night.  I’m a late date.   Here is the flyer for a Candidate Forum that will be taking place this coming Sunday at the Jackie Robinson Center in Pasadena.   The Pasadena Latino Coalition is composed of about a dozen groups that meet to support each other in the work [...]

Spring elections

Spring elections

A fire in one’s belly.  That’s what it takes to decide to run for office.  Or at least that is what it should take.  There was fire in my belly back in 2007;  following are mostly from that run. Photo – Annie Whitcomb During the campaign I learned as much from the folks who would [...]

Wandering

Wandering

Thanks to those of you who check out the blog fairly regularly.  I’m mostly here.  But somewhere, at my core, I’m a wanderer.  I always connected with some of the sentiment of Dion and the Belmonts’ song “I’m a Wanderer”.  Don’t kiss all the girls – for a lot of reasons – and no fists [...]

A Potted Forest

A Potted Forest

I am no Gibbs.  My gut doesn’t always tell me what the right choice or facts might be, however, I think the multi-days of frost are probably over.  That’s the biggest commit I can make.  Probably. So there is a real temptation to heading over the Lincoln Avenue Nursery this weekend.  They are having a [...]

The Pánfilo Tales – A Singular Tail

The Pánfilo Tales – A Singular Tail

There are many surprising things about living with Pánfilo.  James often shares how surprised he is that he has come to love a little dog.  He, and I, are happier and healthier for having to take Pánfilo out on walks.  Sometimes they are meanderings in our backyard and sometimes out in the neighborhood.  In either [...]

An Open Door Day

An Open Door Day

I have mostly enjoyed our past weeks of winter cold.  Kind of exciting for someone who has lived all of her life in the greater LA area to walk on frost on our garden walkways.  I find the crunching my feet makes when I walk on it both magical and musical.  I feel a bit [...]

Goings and Comings

Goings and Comings

Went to Theodore Payne last week to pick up a couple of Dendromecon harfordii (Island Bush Poppy).    Knew what I wanted so the time there was short then I was back on the road home. Beautiful day, clean crisp air, clear skies – bit of a breeze.  Nice ride. Was singing in the car when [...]

The Pánfilo Tales – Dogbed

The Pánfilo Tales – Dogbed

There are days when it is hard to be a cat.  When you try to wake up the female human at 4:20 and she don’t get out of bed until 6:00; well that is exhausting.  Larry knows this to be true – his conclusion based on his experience this morning. Another fact. When you are [...]

Color and twinkle to be boxed away

Color and twinkle to be boxed away

I love to decorate the house for the holidays.  I enjoy so many holidays I tend to think of them as being End of Year holidays.  The dark, the light, the twinkle factor. It’s a chance to incorporate scenes of weather I love, but don’t want to live in on a daily basis.   Snow [...]
