That Lock of Hair
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

It shone upon —not often— That lock of hair That curled Right at his temple But the light had to be just right And it often —most times— Was not. The flight of a word, Or a tone, Could hinge— Landing hard, Landing softly —on a single note To pierce Or to piece together. Timing […]

Ponci on Lincoln

Ponci on Lincoln

Lety told us to come about 10:30. By the time we arrived around 11 a.m., people were already filing in, lining up to order their choice of tortas, burritos, and tacos. Seasoned pork al pasor, cabeza, chicken chipotle, shrimp cakes with cactus, chile rellenos, chicken and beef fajitas, tongue, pork rinds with green or red […]

Underworld Clown Bar

Underworld Clown Bar

Underworld. Clown. Bar. These three words existing in a single sentence catapults us—instantaneously—down, down, down to a cold, dark place to which we’d rather not go.

Kids Cooking: U.K.-Style

Kids Cooking: U.K.-Style

The “Fry Up.” Pan roasted thick slices of tomatoes on a plate with fried eggs with bacon—as well as sausage—and toast, maybe mushrooms. That’s the breakfast we remember eating at many a British B&B. Some morning’s we were served “chips” though never hash brown or home fries (so American!) and on one or more occasions […]

Lyd & Mo Photography

Lyd & Mo Photography

Twenty-seven North Mentor Avenue in Pasadena used to house a high-end guitar shop. What caught Lydia and Mo’s eyes was a wedding dress on display in the large picture window of Connie Tao Designs. What sealed the deal was the empty space next door. They’d found the perfect spot for Lyd & Mo Photography. When […]

The Stargazey

The Stargazey

I was looking for comfort. Easy but smart entertainment. So I turned to what I know. I returned to Martha Grimes. I was taking a walk and stopped at one of the several Little Free Libraries in the neighborhood and came upon Grimes’ The Stargazey, the fifteenth Richard Jury novel. Now, I’ve read 22 of […]

Inside the Story & Pierre Huyghe: Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

Inside the Story & Pierre Huyghe: Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

For the Frieze Art Fair in 2011, Pierre Huyghe created and installed “Recollection.” Pierre brought in an aquarium, installed some purpley-pink coral rocks, a live hermit crab, and a copy of a Brancusi scuplture. Supposedly, hermit crabs are known for taking discarded shells and adopting them, and Pierre’s crab took up residence in the Brancusi […]

The Missing Pages of Lewis Carroll

The Missing Pages of Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll wrote extensively. Not only all the Alice books, Jabberwocky, The Hunting of the Snark, etc., but journals. Supposedly, Carroll wrote from his early twenties all the way until a year before his death in 1898. Four volumes are presumed to have been lost, but all surviving nine volumes were eventually published. Intriguingly, ten […]
