Glimpses of S. Pas.


Leave the Light On

Leave the Light On

This wonderful old light fixture hangs at the top of my stairs. I can see it through the window when I pull into the driveway after dark. It’s a friendly little beacon. It’s quirky and dependable — kind of like the family it welcomes home. I love the rosy glow of that light, especially after [...]

It would have been a better shot with a tripod, but I couldn’t resist this spur-of-the-moment capture of my husband and daughter walking past Orange Grove Park. When the field and courts are lit up for games it feels like anything is possible … like the unbridled enthusiasm of a sporting match floats up and [...]

Here is the vantage point from the doorway of The Rialto, South Pasadena’s decaying film palace. It has been closed for some time now, open only for the occasional birthday party [...]

Maybe he really likes carrots…

I’m not sure what this guy is supposed to be, but I have some ideas: The spirit of a jack o lantern? The black sheep of the Blue Man Group? A tequila sunrise? At any rate, he sure brightened up the corner of Fremont and Lyndon yesterday. So, dear readers, what are you dressing up [...]

I can’t speak with certainty about very many things. Oh, but I have my suspicions…. I suspect that soy isn’t nearly as good for us as they say it is. I suspect that almost every conspiracy theory contains a kernel of truth. I suspect that many of today’s known facts will someday be in the [...]
