Your Weekend Calendar

How will you do it all this weekend? It’s the culmination of the AxS (Arts and Science) Festival, running through October 16th (most events are free, some suggest reservations); 13th annual Latino Heritage Parade and Jamaica Saturday the 15th (free); the 20th annual Craftsman Weekend put on by Pasadena Heritage, 14th-16th (not free but a […]

A Likely Pairing

A Likely Pairing

Journey House is one of those grand, old Pasadena homes with gorgeous woodwork and Craftsman touches. It’s a comfortable giant, with old growth trees and a big yard. But those things aren’t what make it special. What’s special is its mission “…to assist emancipated foster youth over eighteen years of age to meet their initial […]

Horn Tooting

Horn Tooting

I know what you’re going to say: there are no horns in this picture. I’ve decided I’m allowed to toot my own horn every once in a while. I love old phrases like that, don’t you? It’s easy to figure out how that one arose, but where do you suppose “they had me over a […]

Zen Monday: #166

Zen Monday: #166

Welcome to Zen Monday! Is this your first? Here’s what we do on Mondays: Because the Zen pupil learns from experience rather than from lectures or books, Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. That’s it. Have […]

Duarte Festival of Authors

Duarte Festival of Authors

I’m sorry if you missed it. Hell, I’m sorry I missed it for the last eight years. It was the 9th annual Duarte Festival of Authors, aptly named because it was indeed festive and there were indeed authors–lots and lots of authors. I wasn’t able to stay all day but I was able to enjoy […]

What, Yes, but Where, No.

What, Yes, but Where, No.

Now I know what it is, but I don’t know where. After our discussion on the first I have a pretty good idea this is a marker, but I forgot where I took the picture. Hahamongna, probably. Near the Devil’s Gate Dam, maybe. Does anyone know? Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Slip

…and one day the princess wandered away from the castle. She’d grown up aware of the surrounding forest. She knew the birds that flew along its outskirts and, on occasion, watched a timid deer peek from among the trees. This day, she was the one peeking across the divide between civilized and wild. Even at […]

Santa Catalina Branch Library

Santa Catalina Branch Library

I had so much fun showing you Pasadena’s branch libraries during Banned Books Week that I decided to keep going until I finish. I’ll sneak one in when you’re not looking for it. Ha! Library! Bet you didn’t expect THAT! This is the Santa Catalina Branch, perched on a slope next door to Longfellow School […]

Guest Author: Elizabeth Pomeroy

Before it became fashionable to self-publish, Elizabeth Pomeroy formed her own publishing company–not just to publish her own books but important historical titles as well. Writer, editor, publisher, educator–it’s a wonder she finds time for it all. Please welcome today’s guest author, Elizabeth Pomeroy. Why I write: It was historic places that got me started […]

Break Time

Break Time

We have business to take care of this week on the blog, but first I need a break. I’ve decided to celebrate my caesura with these gentlemen and get in a few rounds of dominoes out back. The guys told me they were on their, uh, lacuna from work at The Kitchen for Exploring Foods […]
