Garages, 4

Garages, 4

I never cared much for garages before moving to Pasadena and I know why. It’s because I never lived anywhere else where the garages were part of the architectural history. Usually they’re all aluminum, each one with the same automatic door as the one across the street. This one speaks for itself, I think. Look […]

Badassary

Badassary

Our friend Dive has been posting snazzy photos of fancy cars, flying Ferraris and pretty women at something called the Goodwood Revival. Altadena’s answer: the Badass Buick. I spent too much time with the thesaurus, looking for a “b” word to describe this car’s attractive, sophisticated, yet intimidating look. I finally settled on Roget’s initial […]

Zen Monday: #163

Zen Monday: #163

In Zen, you learn through experience rather than books or lectures. Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and tell us what you’ve learned, rather than me lecturing you about it. Today I reserve the right to join in the comments when necessary–you know, to add to the experience. Remember, sometimes you have […]

The Coffee Barrel

The Coffee Barrel

Do you ever get so busy or preoccupied you forget to eat? Sooner or later you’ll be reminded with a stomach wallop. Fortunately I live in a city where I can say to myself: “Pull over at the next sign of food” and such a sign will show itself relatively quickly. In this case it […]

Envy Adjacent

Envy Adjacent

Lately, Pasadena Adjacent has been posting some nice looking lawn furniture on her traditional and highly popular Trash Tuesday posts. Mmm, like like like like like. These chairs at San Marino Pool and Patio are new–not free, not yet even on sale. For the likes of me there’s a bonus in that they’re perfect as […]

Not Skywatch Friday

Not Skywatch Friday

I like this picture, looking west and slightly south from near the Avalon Funeral home at the corner of Orange Grove Blvd. and Los Robles. I thought I’d post it today because it’s Friday and a lot of people post pictures of the sky on “Skywatch Friday.” Normally, that would be my reason not to […]

Neighborhood Walk

Neighborhood Walk

Boz and I took a slow meander early yesterday evening. We met four delightful children on the next block, all of whom wanted to meet and pet Boz. “Remember what I told you,” said their grandmother. “Approach slowly.” “What’s his name?” “Does he have teeth? “Does he bite?” “What happened to his tail?” “What’s a […]

Guest Author: Kay Mouradian and A Gift in the Sunlight

Long-time visitors may remember my brief profile of Kay Mouradian in May of 2010. Besides her current novel she has also written books on yoga and meditation. (Wow! I want the brand new copy!) Please welcome today’s Guest Author, Kay Mouradian.   I wish I had known more about my mother Flora. She was 18 […]

I Needed That

I Needed That

Lately Boz and I have been walking at dusk when it’s cooler. The cicadas, frogs and crickets send up a racket. Behind every bush there’s something to interest Boz, even if it’s only a scent. There’s something to interest me, too, around every corner. A light, a shadow, a new view. Yesterday was one of […]
