Peafowl!

Peafowl!

Our thanks to Pasadena resident and Chorale Bel Canto member Claudia Bailey who, year to year, year after year, faithfully records the lives of the local, wild peafowl… (as in peacocks)….                                  

On Becoming a Widow

On Becoming a Widow

I was a 4-pound baby, a twin, a sister to a brother and another sister. Four of us squished together with months instead of years between us. I was the one who was afraid of everything. My dendrites arced into space at a hint of a noise, a scritch, or a sqeak of a bug. […]

Movers & Shakers à la Don Draper

Movers & Shakers à la Don Draper

Imagine the hands of time are moving towards 8 p.m. and the sun is setting behind you, giving the San Gabriel Mountains across the valley a lavender pink glow. The evening temperature is mild, the warmth from the day mixing with the cool entrance of night, and you breath deeply, feel your shoulders relax, and […]

Golden Poppies at 1905 Casa Roca

It was called a “white elephant,”¹ but for a short while Pasadena had an elevated cycleway, something cyclists and environmentalists might pine for now. Horace Dobbins invented the California Cycleway, which opened in 1900, starting at Castle Green (Hotel Green then) and continuing for about a mile, near to the newly rebuilt Raymond Hotel (1901-34). […]

Patakan

Nondescript. Easy to miss because of the corner El Pollo Loco and Subway chains garishly grabbing one’s attention. Look to the right side of the parking lot, toward a flock of umbrellas. Beyond the “wall” of potted trees is an outdoor eating area that leads into the small, slightly dated, but very clean interior of […]

Backyard Chickens & Bees

Margaret Fuller: A New American Life

Margaret Fuller: A New American Life

Sarah Margaret Fuller (Marquess Ossoli) was a woman with more drive, persistence—and nouns—associated with her name than most.
