A Pasadena Latina


Deconstructed Chaos

Deconstructed Chaos

It began innocently enough.  I had a coupon from a local store.   20% off my next purchase of $15.00 or more.   After a hearty season of curating, talking, and researching I was ready to do something else.   Since it is cool(er) that meant it was time for me to begin baking.   […]

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. Last month I was on a panel at the Pasadena Playhouse and this […]

Gracias a  la vida, first anniversary

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 […]
