Split Decision

Split Decision

She just couldn’t go back. It was the fear of returning, returning to the narrow, pale Dickensian chins, colorless competition with glazed blue eyes looking beyond and through her; the easing of their shapeless forms against cold leather chairs, pushing corporate words over, around and past her. The routine movements stretched and splattered, extending like [...]

Share Faire at Farnsworth

Share Faire at Farnsworth

It started as a few neighbors (3 miles above Pasadena, in the foothills) who had too much fruit all at one time. We set up a fruit stand and sold blackberries to passers by. We were amazed at the generosity of our neighbors, who liked to stay and chat, and even return with their own [...]

Koertge at Boston Court

Koertge at Boston Court

The drive is okay:  A.C. on high (it’s torrid in Los Angeles, with the usual muslin-yellow sky), radio up, some gratifying amiable/envious/admiring/lubricious glances. At the mall, she has to park at the top of a new structure, following a ramp so circuitous it’s like an inner ear. Is she going to emerge under the invisible [...]

Mail Trucks Full of Food

Mail Trucks Full of Food

Clients may pick up a grocery cart full of food, sized for each family. Food is distributed six times a week. Homebound seniors and disabled clients receive food packages in eleven different cities.

World Book Night

World Book Night

At the 2010 Book Industry Conference in London, a round table discussion came up with an intriguing and ambitious concept:  what if bibliophiles shared their favorite books with people who don’t regularly read? As a result, World Book Night was born. Authors of selected books waive royalty fees so WBN can afford to print editions that [...]

Going to the Fringe

Going to the Fringe

“Is Shylock really a villain? Is Macbeth?” These are the questions poised by the devotees of Shakespeare who constitute the California Shakespeare Ensemble. Villains, which debuted in November 2013, questions what it means to be a villain and speculates that “The Bard’s more complex villains may actually show us how much evil is in all of [...]

Bloomin’ Roses

Bloomin’ Roses

From a delicate individual rose with striated white and scarlet petals to luminescent pearl, sun-backed petals, the roses are in bloom. Strolling the neighborhood, we experienced this week’s cool winds carrying mere hints to intense blasts of rose bouquet.                                 [...]

Diane Keaton: Vroman’s Presents

Diane Keaton:  Vroman’s Presents

Have a child who swims at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center? Then maybe you’ve seen one of America’s most iconic actresses keeping her eyes peeled on a particular lane during a particular race. Diane Keaton. Looking her true age (68) with an endearing smile and none of her onscreen stammer, she usually keeps her trilby-type [...]

Gluten Free Chocolate Raisin Muffins

Gluten Free Chocolate Raisin Muffins

I decided to try to make something passable as a muffin, without the flour. I was making this recipe up as I went along and ended up being really happy with the results. Luckily, I wrote down my process. These muffins are made mostly of nuts, seeds and fruit, so they are high in fiber [...]
