Commemorating the March on Washington

Commemorating the March on Washington

August 28th will be the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963, three months before the assassination of President Kennedy. For this writer who was only a year old, the day most probably came and went with lots of napping, consuming and digesting, but for the mother of said [...]

Upstairs Downstairs at the Gamble House

Upstairs Downstairs at the Gamble House

With the Gamble House being only two stories, this doesn’t feel like a traditional upstairs/downstairs situation. The servants weren’t tucked away, never to be thought of or considered. Yes, most often Mary Gamble only used first names in her diary, so historians aren’t able to place all those in their service, but some were regarded [...]

Lead and Your Sketch Pad

Lead and Your Sketch Pad

Take a sip, take a listen, and draw a few lines… The NELAart organization is having its first LEAD event at the Verdugo Bar on Sunday, August 11th. The idea is for people to grab their sketch pad, pencils, pens, charcoal, pastels, or whatever their means, and join “like-minded creatives of all styles” to create, [...]

Tempest in the Garden

Tempest in the Garden

“It’s a dark and stormy night.” So Shakespeare’s The Tempest begins—not with those exact words, of course, but with a storm conjured by Prospero, the former Duke of Milan, setting this tale in motion. A more appropriate quote may be from the play itself, with its shipwreck victims, a strange plot, and a mischievous spirit—”Misery [...]

Summer’s Edge at Louis Jane Studio

The exhibit named “Summer’s Edge” at Louis Jane Studio in Old Pasadena features “the personal relationships of five artists to the natural world. The twenty works in ‘Summer’s Edge’ explore inner connections to the natural realm in a wide array of styles and voices.” Exhibitor Janet Bothne states that color is her “natural anti-depressant.” I see color [...]

Speaking of: Shirley Jahad

Speaking of: Shirley Jahad

It’s the voice we hear in our head. “This is Shirley Jahad for Weekend Edition.” Kind of husky, in the throat, but tinged with a lyricism. The timber denotes a cool head, a sharp and curious mind—serious discussion looms on the horizon or an adventure is about to be undertaken. Saturday, July 27th, Pasadena Public Library‘s [...]
