Guy Fish

Guy Fish

When Hometown Pasadena contributor Karol Franks brought our attention to an opening reception for a local artist, we were all ears. Guy Fish is not only the Art Education Manager at the Huntington Library but a plein air painter. His exhibit “Fresh California” is a collection of works that will be exhibited throughout the month […]

De-Cor: A Winter Sale

De-Cor: A Winter Sale

We love stepping into De-Cor, an enchanting profusion of color, smells, shapes, and textures. The 7,500 square foot showroom is lined with shelves of hand made textiles, filled with “re-claimed” furniture that’s been restored and updated, and a handful of display “rooms” that illustrate how their merchandise work together so alluringly. During the first week […]

Squirrels Got Cheek

Squirrels Got Cheek

Here’s a cute one from my morning walk today. A squirrel finds lunch in Grant Park!                       And one more time, because this guy deserves a second, bigger, look…          

Properties of Silence Salon Series

Properties of Silence Salon Series

The L.A. Times has called Properties of Silence “an intriguing dreamscape,” while the L.A. Weekly simply writes, “wondrous.” About Productions pairs the production of Properties of Silence, a one-act, with a series of after-events called the Post-Silence Salon Series. Poets reading, music playing, panels discussing, scholars talking, and singers singing—it all happens throughout the month […]

I’m From…

I’m From…

    I’m from mountains and sycamore trees, from white oleomargarine that needs to be massaged with yellow coloring. I’m from homemade sandwiches to take to school for lunch. I’m from an unlocked house that is empty from morning to dinnertime, and I spend time there or at my grandma’s house next door after school […]

Chili Cornmeal Tart

Chili Cornmeal Tart

This hearty dish has been a staple in my cooking for over a year, so I was surprised when a friend asked me for the recipe and I wanted to direct her here, only to realize I hadn’t done a post about it. Like so many of my favorite dishes, this is just a slight […]

For Artists: A Must See

For Artists: A Must See

Lost in Living is a film for artists. Particularly women artists, though not exclusively. It’s also a film for people who are living with, loving, or trying to understand artists. For me, Kat Ward (no journalistic royal “we” here), Lost in Living by Mary Trunk and Paul Sanchez of Ma and Pa Films was a pivotal […]

Have Something to Say? TEDxPasadena Women

Have Something to Say? TEDxPasadena Women

The theme at TEDx Pasadena Women is “momentum.” How have women built momentum historically? How do women define momentum? How do they utilize it? Where has momentum brought women? Is women’s momentum different from human momentum, men’s momentum, or cultural momentum? What fuels momentum? What kills it? How have women used momentum to succeed and/or […]

Heartbreak Cake

Heartbreak Cake

“What are you daydreaming about?” “I’m thinking about cake. Big, multilayered cakes that are squeezed in between more layers of buttercream or chocolate ganache.” “How can you still be thinking about cake? I’ve had enough cake today to last me the week, if not more.” “How dare you,” I tease…   When Cindy Arora, author […]
