A Pasadena Latina


A new week, a new focus

A new week, a new focus

Sometimes I miss going to work and having a regular schedule.  There is a part of me that lightly revels in the predictable.  The same breakfast, the same shampoo, the same husband – all of this makes me happy. When I was teaching there was the daily schedule that kept all of us moving in […]

Real questions

Real questions

Tonight I’ll be on the panel following the performance of  at the Pasadena Playhouse.  I’ll be joining Josefina López, 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 […]

More Real Women

Josefina Lopez is usually thought of as a playwright. 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 […]

From Lali’s point of view

From Lali’s point of view

The humans were busy in August*.   Lots of running back and forth.  Mostly without me.  Which is basically wrong.   We all know that I should be the center of all things. There have been all sorts of people in the house.  Some have been here a couple of times and some have slept […]

After and Before

After and Before

Been pretty busy lately.  Will share more of the details soon. In the meantime, yesterday was the 40th birthday of my older baby. A woman who can still make her tween laugh and can perch a purse on her knee without giving it too much thought.  I have to admire that skill set.  She is […]
