Mt. Wilson Week: Cosmic Cafe

Mt. Wilson Week: Cosmic Cafe

You probably won’t go to the Cosmic Cafe first. You’ll probably walk around the grounds and check out the views–wear yourself out a little. That is, if you drove up. Some people hike, so they come pre-worn out. I wouldn’t recommend hiking on a hot day; the trail is long and (necessarily) uphill, and it […]

Mt. Wilson Week: Haramokngna

Mt. Wilson Week: Haramokngna

It’s easy to get to Mount Wilson. Just drive north on the Angeles Crest Highway (the 2) to Mount Wilson Road and turn right at the Haramokngna American Indian Cultural Center outpost. This quiet spot is a small museum of artifacts of the Native Americans who lived in this area before the Spanish came. They […]

Theme Day: Postcard-Worthy

Theme Day: Postcard-Worthy

You may be aware that the first of the month is Theme Day around the City Daily Photo world. Today’s theme is “postcard-worthy.” I think this eastward view of the San Gabriel Mountains from the lookout at Mount Wilson lives up to the theme. If you’ve stopped in for your Monday Zen, never fear: we’ll […]

Project Housed

Project Housed

For me, the night is sweet. I snuggle in my home with my husband and my dog and we relax together, reading, surfing the web, enjoying each other’s company. (Boz doesn’t read and surf the web, of course. We read to him. Otherwise how else is he going to keep up with current events?) I […]

Little Things

Little Things

You may recall I tried running last May. I was gung-ho which, it turns out, is an anglicized pronunciation of a pair of Chinese words that mean “work together-work in harmony.” My body thought the opposite. (Ho gung?) My body thought “I am not working together in harmony with you on this project. Take THAT!” […]

Must. Hike.

Must. Hike.

Some of us must hike, heat or no heat. The trails north of JPL have decent shade, and the streams still have water in them. The trails have recently been reopened after the Station Fire, though you’ll find changes. The cones on this bridge are lined up so neatly, don’t you think? We couldn’t figure […]

Sidewalk Jones

Sidewalk Jones

There doesn’t seem to be a structural reason for it to be there. We don’t get snow or ice here, so it’s not for traction. It’s too big to be a thumbprint. To give context: It joins its fellows on South Raymond Avenue, in front of Jones Coffee Roasters. Could it be they’re just for […]

A Pattern to Follow

A Pattern to Follow

I used to make my own clothes. Except pants. I was deft with darts and pleats and a total klutz with pants. But I made dresses, shirts, blouses and skirts–not just dirndls, though I started there–I even made jackets with pockets and lapels. I moved to Los Angeles in a 1985 Ford Tempo. Only what […]

Zen Monday: #156

Zen Monday: #156

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. This is because on Mondays I post the photos I don’t comprehend. Please share your thoughts in the comments as they come to you. Thanks. I appreciate it. Read the […]
