Feeding the Head, Heart & Hands

Folk artist, permaculture garden designer; teaching in Nairobi, Costa Rica, China, and Kenya; award-nominee and artist-in-residence.

“Honey, Did You Take Out the Trash?

“Honey, Did You Take Out the Trash?

Some people actually make the conscious decision to toss an empty wrapper onto the ground, or carelessly throw an empty soda can out the car window. Unfortunately, trash dumping is currently happening on Canyon Crest Road overlooking Millard Canyon in Altadena. This Sunday, the Arroyo Seco Foundation plans on tackling that situation up close and personal. […]

Ya Gotta Love Lucy

Ya Gotta Love Lucy

A redhead who was one of a kind. An American original. Her work will go down in the annals of TV and comedic history. We’re talking about Lucille Ball and one of America’s most popular TV shows,  I Love Lucy. This Saturday, the Greenway Arts Alliance will host a special performance of  “I Love Lucy” […]

Oh, Arroyo, We Love You So…

Oh, Arroyo, We Love You So…

From hiking the trails, walking the dog(s), running the paths, navigating through the new landscape of fallen trees after The Windstorm, to strolling and chatting with a friend or walking solo at sundown to catch the settling of the day, the Arroyo feels like our Arroyo, something personal and meaningful. In that spirit, the Arroyo […]

Paths to the Future

Paths to the Future

It feels like America may be heading towards a system we’ve only known to exist in Europe or Asia; schools establishing programs that lead their students on the path to a particular career. The concept here stretches beyond the directing of some students towards higher study and others towards technical schools. It’s a “pathway” system […]

Toys Are a Spark of Love

Toys Are a Spark of Love

Christmas morning and no gifts under the tree? Unfortunately, far too many children will experience just this scenario on Christmas morning, the day many of us will be celebrating with family, engulfed in wrapping paper, and opening boxes filled with wonderful surprises—expressions of the love that is all around us.

Memorial for the Unknown

Memorial for the Unknown

Did you know Lurch? He died alone. On a bench. Right here in Pasadena. How about Tom, who died next to a dumpster at a pharmacy? These are just two out of the 50 local homeless people who died in 2011, and 50 out of the thousands nationwide who die each year from illness, exposure […]
