Daisy’s Masterpiece

Daisy’s Masterpiece

Daisy was obsessed with Christmas. She loved everything about the holiday—the fragrant tree, shiny ornaments, twinkling lights, candy canes, the works. Just last week, her mother heard the seven-year-old belting out “Jingle Bell Rock” to an audience of dolls. It was cute. It would have been adorable, but it was August in Pasadena. And the [...]

Human Cargo

Human Cargo

A smart, sexy detective; a case involving a mysterious, wealthy American and the Russian Mafia; danger, romance and pathos: it’s local, and our hero is a heroine. In a fast-paced detective novel, Human Cargo (2011) by Des Zamorano, gives us flashes of Dashiell Hammett with a style all her own. Instead of Sam Spade we have [...]

Rose Bowl Float Viewing

Rose Bowl Float Viewing

Christmas Scenes

Christmas Scenes

One of our favorite things to do is drive around in the evening and see Christmas lights and decorations. Time is getting a little tight, evenings are filling up with last minute buying, wrapping, and the writing of cards, so during a break today, with the sun shining lower in the winter sky, we went [...]

The Soap Kitchen: Smell It, Try It, Love It

The Soap Kitchen: Smell It, Try It, Love It

Need some aromatherapy? Welcome to The Soap Kitchen on Fair Oaks Avenue in Old Pasadena. To open the door and step in is to be enveloped with the scents of oils and herbs. Usually right inside the door is the main ingredient in which to mix these oils and herbs. It’s easy to miss, but [...]

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 [...]

Started Early, Took My Dog

Started Early, Took My Dog

Started Early, Took My Dog Kate Atkinson continues to mine England’s disaffected middle (the middle of the country and the middle class) for mysteries that are, at their heart, character-driven novels. Tracy Waterhouse, middle-aged, retired from the police force and working as a security guard at a local, depressing mall, makes an improbable decision. Both [...]
