A Pasadena Latina


The view of my room; or what could be better than grade one, stage one

The view of my room; or what could be better than grade one, stage one

I don’t know.  How about grade IA and stage one. Yes.  Good news.  They got all the cancer. I need to return for a check-up every six months for the next five years.  Feeling fortunate to have healthcare; happy that doctors were pro-active; lucky to experience the kindness, love, and good food folks have shared […]

A double throwback

A double throwback

From an era where the colors were darker than I was (trying to be). Sophomore or Junior year at Garfield High School, East Los. From a time when I was glad to be here. Last weekend, Huntington Memorial Hospital, Pasadena, CA

Stage one, grade one – good news when it comes to cancer

Stage one, grade one – good news when it comes to cancer

Thanks all for your caring.  Back home.  Focusing on healing by resting this week. Surgery was a success.  Folks at Huntington were superb.  Don’t yet know if I’ll need chemo or radiation.  I’ll have final details soon, but the initial report was as good as it could be. Wrote this before I went in to […]

Hei ho

Hei ho

Hei ho, it’s off to health, I go. Thanks to all the good friends who have sent thoughts, cleaned floors, told me that I needed more texture in the room, offered consejos, helped me by taking time to sit with me or have offered help after the operation. I’m so surrounded by caring and love. […]

45 days – in just 23 hours

45 days – in just 23 hours

I’m writing fast so please forgive typos, grammar spills, and syntactical boo boos. What a whirlwind!  It will have been 45 days from the appointment where I share with my ob/gyn sthat I did not feel right to surgery this coming Friday.  Longer than my friends had to adjust – two paragraphs isn’t much time […]

Good news, bad news, mixed news…

Good news, bad news, mixed news…

Some posts are harder to write than others.  It can be that there are a lot of interruptions,  or that the topic is detailed, or that the thought is complicated and writing isn’t the same as having a conversation face to face.  This post falls in the last category. To cut to the chase it […]

Latino Heritage Month 2014

Latino Heritage Month 2014

Another find, another thing to decide whether to keep or to toss. In this case it a Lovely foam core sheet filled with the activities that took place during Latino Heritage Month in 1999 – right here in Pasadena.  It accompanied an informal guerrilla exhibit.  Up for an event and then away to be stored. […]

Lecture is such a pedantic word

Lecture is such a pedantic word

There are a couple of images that come to mind when I hear or read the word “lecture”. The first is the l o n g talk that talk place at college where there are 100 plus people in the room and the presenter is more focused on data or dates.  Neither is a bad […]

As if the usie was new

As if the usie was new

I don’t remember the occasion, but here are Faye Murata, Peggy Thomas, and me.  We are doing the 60s variation on goofing around and taking a group selfie.  

Agatha and me

Agatha and me

One of the good things about technology is the ability to scan or somehow preserve photos.   I’m guessing that this is from 1968 or 1969.  You doubt me?  Take a gander at the guitar and the paper flowers.  I think this was also taken before I decoupaged the name Agatha on my guitar.   […]
