Aurora’s other victims

Aurora’s other victims

Just learning about the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado.  Very tragic situation in so many ways. Over the next couple of weeks folks will learn more about all involved – postulation and speculation are sure to follow. I’ve not seen the movie, but what I’ve read and seen of the trailer this clearly is a movie [...]

Big Work in a little town

Big Work in a little town

It’s not unusual for James and me to head out to Santa Paula.  It’s a grand little town.  It has precious little traffic, fresh sea air, a phenomenal butcher, and a pace that seems to refresh both of us.  We were recently at the Rodney Fernandez Gardens.  The corn is grown in the middle of [...]

It’s all in the hands.

It’s all in the hands.

I was planning to write a bit about the Bandini/Elliott family a couple of weeks ago.  But I have to make an admission here, I have two addictions.  The first, is an addiction to coffee.  The second, as if you didn’t already know, is an addiction to historical research.  There are worse addictions to be [...]

A matter of perspective

 Some days it seems  that Larry gets  all the attention. Sigh.

O say can you sing

Today is Bastille Day.  I was reminded of this because one of my friends sent me this link to Youtube.  I’ve added a link at the end of this post. Many of my friends deeply believe in the national motto of France – “Liberte, egalite, fraternite/ Liberty, equality, fraternity”.  These friends are diverse enough that [...]

Our very own Larry and mantle

Our very own Larry and mantle

It’s raining outside.  Not only do we know this from the sound of raindrops – fats ones, I’m guessing – hitting the ground. Larry brought us proof on his fur. He is drying off now.  We may go about our business.

Even on a hot day

Even on a hot day

It’s parade planning time so I found myself at City Hall yesterday.  It was hot, hot, hot, but the skies were clear. The light on the cupola gives a sense of the heat. Even in the heat of the day Pasadena City Hall radiated in her own distinct manner.

Naming 5

Naming 5

In the 1990s I worked as an anti-bias facilitator.  Sounds like a very “PC” approach to differences and to some degree it was.  But it was also an opportunity to look at our biases – we all have them –  figure out how and why we respond as we do. Then think about how we [...]

In the Good Ol’ Summer Time

In the Good Ol’ Summer Time

In the midst of summer mulching and dusty dirt digging  I need to remember   and  before I succumb to Larry’s lead.

Between gardens and yard work

Between gardens and yard work

Just poking up my head for a moment.   Here’s a before picture.  The after pictures will be posted next week. We’re trying to catch up and maybe get ahead of our plants.  A dear friend shared that there is a difference between yard work and gardening.  She loves to garden.  We are in the [...]
