Katrina Kenison: The Gift of an Ordinary Day

Katrina Kenison: The Gift of an Ordinary Day

“Watching my sons growing and changing so visibly, almost from one day to the next, I sensed something in me breaking loose and changing as well, something no less powerful for being invisible. It was almost as if, having strived for years for predictable comforts, urban conveniences, and security of our well-established routines, I was […]

Master Sommelier Elizabeth Schweitzer: Wine, Wisdom, and Wit

Master Sommelier Elizabeth Schweitzer: Wine, Wisdom, and Wit

“She’s a kick,” says a reputable Hometown Pasadena source. “I once had her do a wine tasting for ____’s birthday. We asked her to bring wine that would go with spicy food (Thai and Indian), the hottest we could find, and she brought lots of great white wine and champagne. The whole event was great.” […]

Brahms, Beethoven & CalStateLA

Brahms, Beethoven & CalStateLA

Brahms Double Concerto for violin and cello. Beethoven’s 1st Symphony. Cal State L.A. Huh? It does make sense, really.

Rose Bowl Float Viewing

Rose Bowl Float Viewing

A favorite holiday activity that is almost better than the Tournament of Roses Parade, is strolling around, viewing, ooh and aahing, marveling, inhaling, and snapping pics of the Tournament of Roses floats before their big day.

Schubert’s “Winterreise”

Schubert’s “Winterreise”

They’re called “song cycles” for voice and piano. Franz Schubert composed “Winterreise” or “Winter Journeys” in 1828, a setting of 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller in two parts, each containing 12 songs about a young poet walking away, then meandering vainly, trying to leave behind a love who has found another. In “Winterreise,” Schubert raises the […]

Naughty or Nice? Giveaways & Savings

Naughty or Nice? Giveaways & Savings

It’s down to the wire. There are only 7 days until Christmas. How’s that list coming? Still stuck on that brother-in-law who only seems to barbecue and watch Dodger games? Parents who are at the age where there’s no more room on any shelf for another knickknack and they constantly say, “Oh, honey, I’m just […]
