Beautiful Rain, Colored Skies

Beautiful Rain, Colored Skies

Waking up in the morning recently, the temperature has been as low as 37ºF, 5 degrees from freezing. One evening we stepped outside and it smelled like snow. Yet the sky was clear, the stars as bright as possible while fighting through the glare of city lights. Now the rain has come. Glorious rain. From […]

The Neighborhoods in Which We Live

The Neighborhoods in Which We Live

Near the north end of the Hahamongna Watershed Park, on the edge of the foothills, west of Lincoln Avenue and not far from West Alta Loma Drive, artist Ana Marini-Genzon lives, paints, and walks. We were first introduced to Ana’s art during the Open Studios tour in the spring of 2015. We’ve been an admirer […]

Frank Groucho

Frank Groucho

Frankly, one should be  a fan if choosing to attend An Evening with Groucho starring Frank Ferrante. Definitively and decisively. As a true Groucho Marx fan, this could be an evening that’s highly entertaining, producing aching sides and sore facial muscles. Ferrante resembles Groucho Marx and sounds a bit like him too, though his words […]

Shall it be a bare bones classic burger or one topped with anything from fried eggs and french fries to pineapple rings and carrot strings? January 10-15 is the 4th Annual Cheeseburger Week, where […]

Growing up in Fairfield County, Connecticut one of the places to which I returned happily time and time again was what I knew only as Silvermine. Sitting in the passenger seat, trying not to get car sick as my mother drove down windy roads crowded with ancient trees and an endless canopy of greenery overhead, […]

Resolve to Write Your Story

Resolve to Write Your Story

In August of 1999 I visited England. Among many other delights, I climbed the famous Glastonbury Tor with a local guide. From the top we viewed green, billowing hills, cozy farms and miles of hedgerows. But the most remarkable sight was a giant, flat-topped hill that dominated the landscape, its ramparts tiered like a green […]

No “Thon”, No Totes, No Gala

No “Thon”, No Totes, No Gala

The YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley is not sending out mailing labels, offering tote bags, hosting a gala, or asking that we walk, swim, or run for “any activity that has the word ‘thon’ in it.” For a $25 donation to help empower girls, educate women, and fight for racial justice and civil rights, YWCA P-FV will […]
