No Darwin Awards Yet

No Darwin Awards Yet

Close, but no cigar. I wonder where that saying came from. We had a good time here Friday making fun of predictions of the rapture. We weren’t the only ones. The internet is rife with photos of piles of clothes left empty. At parties last night, people celebrated not being raptured. A friend told me [...]

Thank You, San Rafael School

Thank You, San Rafael School

A distinguished group invited me to speak to them yesterday morning. I was summoned to their headquarters at 9:15 a.m. They were the bright, charming 5-year-olds of Pasadena’s San Rafael School. These kids are part of a dual language immersion program, where English-speaking and Spanish-speaking kids go to school together. Most of their classes are taught [...]

Oh Joy, Oh Rapture

Oh Joy, Oh Rapture

I don’t know about you but I’ve left my weekend calendar open, especially tomorrow–you know, for the rapture and all. I don’t fool myself that I’m going anywhere, but I’m excited to see who’s holy enough to get raptured. Who do you think? The pope? John Boehner? Beyonce? Anybody who thinks they’re holy probably isn’t, [...]

Baby (pant pant) Steps

Baby (pant pant) Steps

Yesterday I did a strange thing. I got up at 6:30 in the morning and went running. I haven’t been running in…ever. I tried once in Chicago when I was in my twenties. I think I did about a mile and decided it wasn’t for me. A mile. I was so ungrateful. I don’t want [...]

Pure Love

Pure Love

When you set up a cage at the Farmers’ Market and fill it with puppies, you will draw a crowd. The sign requested cash for photos. I tossed a dollar in the box and started shooting. Would a legitimate breeder sell dogs at the Farmers’ Market for $3,000 a pop? (or pup?) Apparently so. I [...]

Not On Their Watch

Not On Their Watch

I’ve had my head in the proverbial sand for some time now. We unplugged our TV a while back and I’ve turned off my car radio so as not to hear about politics because I want to enjoy life. Today I drove John’s car. The radio was on when I turned the key in the [...]

Zen Monday: #146

Zen Monday: #146

Here’s your Monday Zen, a chance to reflect on the photo and give us your thoughts without me telling you what I think the photo’s about. Just say what the picture makes you think or feel. There’s no right or wrong, no secret, no prize. Just have fun and enjoy the other comments, as I [...]

Sunday, Sunday

Sunday, Sunday

There are worse things you could do than sit on the back steps of Pasadena’s Central Library on a Sunday. (Not all branches are open today, but this one’s open from 1-5.) You could go north, where the Friends of the Altadena Library conclude this year’s book sale from 1-4pm. You could catch five free [...]

Isle of Art

Isle of Art

Yesterday I posted hastily because I was rushing out of the house to see an art exhibit in Culver City, which is not in Pasadena. Today is the last day* to see works by the LA Fine Art Squad at the Cardwell Jimmerson Gallery at 8568 Washington Blvd. (they’re open 11-6). I know you may [...]

Der Sandmann

Der Sandmann

Yay! Blogger’s been down for a while (I guess we all know) and now it seems to be back. Enough said about that. I never miss an opportunity to roam the CalTech campus, and last night I had the opportunity to attend a film there. The film is Der Sandmann (The Sandman), directed by Peter [...]
