Beautiful Decay

Beautiful Decay

I’m glad South Pas hangs on to so much of its old stuff. Take this alleyway, for example. A fresh coat of paint and a new garage door would suffocate the soul of this old building. New isn’t always better. In fact, new is a construct that can create insecurity, competition and greed. But entropy? […]

Zen Monday: #65

Zen Monday: #65

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. I look for something worth thinking about or, failing that, at least something odd. As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I’ll add a label to last week’s to identify it […]

Settings: Part 17

I can’t help it. I always see a place as a potential setting for a movie scene and this unusual entryway is no exception. River rock! Wrought iron! A flag! Come on, people … if you were directing this film, what would happen here? Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

A Blissful Affair

A Blissful Affair

J and I were actually out after dark last night, and I believe we were at the social event of the season. It was the 9th Annual Perello Private Outdoor Affair, where we got to meet new people, chow down on great food, have a drink and–believe it or not–enjoy a brief massage. Now that’s […]
