Zen Monday: #129

Zen Monday: #129

It’s Zen Monday again, can you believe it? This is the day you tell us what the photo’s about, rather than me telling you. The reason we call it “zen” is loosely (very, very loosely) based on the zen idea of teaching through experience rather than telling–you know, lectures, taking notes, reading books. So, please [...]

Lose Somebody?

Lose Somebody?

We interrupt this post to bring you today’s stray dog report. This little guy followed Boz home but ran away when I tried to lure him into the yard with treats. We saw him again when we walked in a different part of the neighborhood. This time, with Boz as a lure, a couple of [...]

Sugar Water

Sugar Water

I love the pergola and whatever’s growing on it. It’s a nice way to shade a porch. I didn’t think I’d like the lion but he grows on me. Not crazy about the other statue, but that’s a personal choice. The bougainvillea is gorgeous. I have two of them that look like weeds. Occasionally they [...]

Home Shopping: To the Rescue

Home Shopping: To the Rescue

John saw an article in the Pasadena Star-News about an unincorporated area of Pasadena called Michillinda Park. A group of neighbors there is trying to save a vintage Craftsman house. We decided to drive over and have a look. Michillinda Park is a lovely, historic neighborhood where peacocks graze on the median. Too bad it’s [...]

Moving On

Moving On

At a memorial service yesterday I saw a lot of people with whom I once worked. It’s appropriate for the photo to be a little fuzzy, as I discovered my memory to be. “Remember the time we all…?” Not really. “You were there when so and so…” Was I? It was nice to see them, [...]

I was at Vroman’s last night, obviously. I might not have gone had my brother not asked me to get a book signed for him. He likes this author, Chris Cleave. I hadn’t heard of Cleave but I like my brother and plan B involved doing nothing, so I went. Chris has two books out [...]

Inner Light

Inner Light

The Pasadena Presbyterian Church is at the corner of Colorado Blvd. and Madison Avenue, a prime Tournament of Roses Parade viewing spot. For the parade, the church had bleachers in its front yard. All along Colorado Blvd. every year, every space that can fit more than two super-deluxe adult derrieres gets bleachers. I took the [...]

Zen Monday: #128

Zen Monday: #128

It’s Zen Monday, the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And I stay out of the comments box until the end of the day to avoid [...]

Sandals of Yucca

Sandals of Yucca

Before 1769, California was populated by native tribes. A huge area, from Riverside County to the coast, including the southern Channel Islands and all of the San Gabriel Valley, was dominated by people we now call the Tongva, also known as the Gabrielino. I’ve been reading up on the Tongva for a series of articles [...]
