My, how they’ve grown… It’s back to school time. Most of South Pasadena’s kids are putting their noses to the grindstone in SPUSD’s public schools. Others are attending private progressive schools like Waverly, Waldorf and Sequoyah or the highly academic Polytechnic. Some are in charter schools. A few are homeschooling. A few are even unschooling. […]

A Post for Fellow Treehuggers…

A Post for Fellow Treehuggers…

Trees, trees and more South Pasadena trees! I want to thank readers Johnny and Greenman for emailing me after yesterday’s post on the library tree.  You guys asked if I had any video slideshows of my many (many!) tree pictures?  I aims to please… But before you click on the above video, I am reminded […]

South Pasadena Family Tree

South Pasadena Family Tree

Ever wonder about the history of the majestic Moreton Bay fig tree outside the South Pasadena Public Library? It certainly seems primordial — like a remnant of our earth’s distant past. My daughter  once said that she thought the tree surely must have been around when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Even though I could imagine […]

As it turns out, the corner of Huntington and Fair Oaks was once the […]

Walking Around South Pas Neighborhoods…

Walking Around South Pas Neighborhoods…

So many different kinds of houses! When I first moved to South Pasadena from the west side, I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was.  It’s not that my former neighborhood near the Santa Monica Airport wasn’t nice.  It was great.  But South Pasadena had so many different kinds of houses nestled among so many […]

South Pasadena Portrait

Take a look at the faces of South Pasadena One of the things I love the most about my 116-year-old house is the large beveled mirror above the mahogany built-in.  There are a few dings in the frame, but the mirror is crystal clear, and the bank of nearby windows offers the kind of soft-glow […]

It’s hard not to get caught up in the horrors of recent news.  I find my solace and inspiration in the ever-changing sky.  Clouds part.  Darkness turns to light.   And for a few brief moments every day, it’s magic hour. Want to leave a comment?  (Come on.  Don’t be shy.  I can see you […]
