Directed by Michael Murray (runs February  27 – May  21)  this classic comedy concerns itself with the battle of the sexes between Beatrice and Benedick.

Stepping it Up

Stepping it Up

You’ll find these lovely stairs on the west side of South Pasadena High School. The building is so art deco chic it reminds me of an old Busby Berkeley musical. In fact, these steps really need to be the backdrop of something musical. Can’t you imagine a scrappy young couple marching down arm in arm, […]

Last Day, February 2010

Last Day, February 2010

Johnson Field, 2/21/2010 Here’s my most recent shot of our Last Day location. As an experiment, we’ve been checking in to this spot monthly since last September to view the subtle (or not) changes to one spot over a one-year period. To see all the Last Day posts so far, click on the Last Day […]

Stay In

Stay In

The sign keeps no one out of nowhere; it’s a remnant of the old days, but of which old days I’m not sure. A skilled rider leads young student riders across the northern part of Hahamongna Watershed Park with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab in the background. I took the photo last Sunday. The ground was […]

Follow Sierra Madre’s Lead — Read Zorro

Follow Sierra Madre’s Lead — Read Zorro

Sierra Madre just finished One Book One City, reading one of my all-time favorites: Zorro, by Isabel Allende. Zorro is among Allende’s lighter works (not much magical realism, but a healthy dose of feminism, and family-friendly on the love scenes). It’s a headlong but thoughtful re-imagining of our own California Robin Hood epic, starring the […]

Allure

Allure

The sister store of Attitude in Sierra Madre, Allure is an amazingly well-thought-out store. The wide space makes room for strollers and large fashion appetites. The vibe is trendy and upbeat, with a range of clothes: fad pieces abound, but you can still find something for the classic woman. With an emphasis on teens to […]
