Pachamama: World Mother

Pachamama: World Mother

In early literature, she was depicted as “a cruel goddess eager to collect her sacrifices,” which included elaborate miniature garments, as well as llamas. Today, Pachamama, revered by the indigenous people of the Andes is regarded as benevolent and giving, as nature itself; a “dragoness fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting” (BroomCloset). In [...]

Jumping into a Masterpiece

Jumping into a Masterpiece

Ever look at Paul Cézanne’s Farmhouse and Chestnut Trees at Jas de Bouffan and think, “I’d like to be right there”? Or make room for yourself amongst Paul Klee’s Two Heads? Maybe take a walk through the woods in Ansel Adams’ Aspens, New Mexico or tie on your ballet shoes and slip in amongst Edgar Degas’ Dancers [...]

Joe & the Snow Leopard

Joe & the Snow Leopard

Sept 26 In a tent. Each of us has quickly developed a tent survival layout. In order to exist in a tent, you have to organize the space as if you were a blind person. Everything has to be where you know it is by touch and orientation. You think you’re going to wake up [...]

Pasta with Broccolini & Chicken

Pasta with Broccolini & Chicken

Local farmer’s markets have broccolini on the shelves right now.  Flavor is a cross between broccoli and asparagus, and can be used in dishes using either vegetable. Here’s one of our favorites! Ingredients: 2 bunches fresh broccolini, rough-chopped (approx. 2½-3 cups) 2-4 fresh garlic cloves, minced (I, of course, used five) 5 tablespoons olive oil [...]

Friday Night Eats, Drinks & Music

Friday Night Eats, Drinks & Music

We stepped into a darkened room devoid of tables and chairs. What glowed under muted, pointed lights was a bar, behind which stood a man placing a serving bowl onto the countertop. We stepped closer. Dotting the bar were 3″ x 4″ pieces of paper that read “Bar + Fish,” which then listed a couple [...]

Pony Box’s “Edge” at Lineage

Pony Box’s “Edge” at Lineage

One day our daughter created a drawing that is now our logo. When questioned about what she drew, she replied, “A pony box. You put everything in it.” The term “pony box” became a catch all phrase that means everything and anything… Art + music + dance + theatre + film = Pony Box Dance [...]

Friday Night Music with Raúl Pacheco

Friday Night Music with Raúl Pacheco

Raúl Pacheco looks like, sounds like, and appears to be one of the nicest guys on the planet with one of the best smiles in the world. He’s also the guitarist and sings vocals for the Grammy Award-winning group Ozomatli, which “fuses music from around the world in an urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip hop and salsa, [...]

Mozart & Memories: Pro Musica’s 50th

Mozart & Memories:  Pro Musica’s 50th

To celebrate their 50th anniversary, Pasadena Pro Musica welcomes one of their most accomplished alumna. Mezzo-soprano Paula Rasmussen has not only had an international career, performing with L.A. Opera, New York City Opera, Glyndebourne, and Opèra National de Paris, she’s a litigation attorney. Luckily for audiences, Rasmussen, “who began her career as a young member [...]

Without a Net

Without a Net

Esther Bradley-DeTally has had adventures most of us will never undertake, nor would we want to. On a whim and a (literal) prayer, Esther and her husband Bill lived in Russia in the early 1990’s, for several months at a time, as missionaries of the Baha’i Faith. Bradley-DeTally’s Without a Net isn’t about the Faith, however. [...]

Summer Cooking Camps

Summer Cooking Camps

We figure a child is never too young to learn how to navigate the kitchen. Even the first bowl of cereal that is poured without half of it landing on floor, the first milk that is tipped and doesn’t flood the counter, is a miraculous feat to which we raise our hands skyward and say, “Hallelujah.” This [...]
