Fred Korematsu Day in Pasadena, January 30th

Fred Korematsu Day in Pasadena, January 30th

Civil Rights has all too often been portrayed as a Black and White issue.  I’m sure there a lot of white women who would share that gender bias is a point of civil rights, too.  Folks seem to be learning that civil rights, or the lack thereof, has been an issue for many American citizens [...]

The Pánfilo Tales – End of January update

The Pánfilo Tales – End of January update

We have adjusted well to us being a pack/family.  There is a clear sense that Mr. P is comfortable with us.  We are deeply in love with him.   Larry strikes poses get him to play.  Light hissing and light growling are a part of this.  Mr. P used to bark and Larry used to [...]

World Class

World Class

This past weekend I wandered in and out of the Land of the Special.  Originally I thought of the word Royal, but I know that at least two of the folks who I would write about would not want that word used.  It’s like calling yourself World Class.  I’ve never met Yo Yo Ma, but [...]

Gracias, Vroman’s

Gracias, Vroman’s

Yesterday I joined about thousand folks in line for a book signing.  For the quick read – readers.I was in line for close to two hours and met Justice Sotomayor twice.  Books were given to two special young women in my life, two more are ready to be sent to Oregon and a fifth will [...]

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 [...]
