In Conversation with Ozomatli’s Raul Pacheco

The first time we heard Ozomatli was at Farnsworth Park’s small amphitheater in the foothills of Altadena. It was magical from the first note played. The crowd—mostly parents with the kids of all ages—was on its feet immediately, clapping, heads bopping, and feet moving. Before long, people were dancing in the aisles, kids filled the area down front, […]

Passings

Poetry & Cookies

Malware found me one prolific night. Stole my words, my voice, my malapropisms, illiterating them from memory yet holding them for ransom, for real. Pay in bit coins the red pop-up page demanded, by a certain date after which the price will rise. I examine my maladjusted bank account and draw my optical conclusion: Byte […]

Lemon Ricotta Flaxseed Pancakes

Lemon Ricotta Flaxseed Pancakes

Sundays are meant for pancakes. And crossword puzzles and Netflix. But more importantly, pancakes. These lemon ricotta flaxseed pancakes are delicious and a nice change to the bisquik-style pancakes. They are creamy with a subtle lemon flavor. I made a double batch so I could have extra batter for the next day. They’re so good. […]

Scaling the Big Trucks

Do you remember being a 3½ foot 5-year-old? Besides playing with your friends, your toys, or the family dog, your days were about looking up.

The sun has just risen over the urban treeline.  I sit in the shed and enjoy the shifting lights and shadows.  Not new and novel at a moment. The morning breeze shifts in pace and temperature.  The shadows of the ceanothus and nopal shift, too.   What had been a wall of solid color is […]
