Happy Trails Catering

Happy Trails Catering

Maybe you think Happy Trails Catering is a caterer. Which they are, but you also need to know they’re open for lunch from 11-2:30 on weekdays and, theirs is the most magical setting in which to dine since Alice sat down with the Mad Hatter and his cohorts in insanity. You and your own cartel […]

Hardware Horse

Hardware Horse

I thought of this for a Zen Monday shot, but make no mistake: I’m not making fun of it. I love this metal horse. John and I saw it while out perambulating. (We shouldn’t take cameras, they slow us down.) I didn’t notice until I put this on the monitor that the horse has a […]

Art, Art Everywhere

Art, Art Everywhere

We were just walking, is all, moseying through the park, not expecting to find art. But this is the Dena, where you practically trip over art if you’re not careful. Kids played on the jungle gym. A couple flirted at one of the picnic tables. Guys got a soccer game going on the baseball field. […]

Wubbada-Wubbada

all photos by John Sandel I’ve dug in my heels. I refuse to raise the debt ceiling at our house. The people who live here have to learn to live within their means. Screw the consequences. There will be no new sod in the back yard this summer. Suffer! There will be no beach vacation. […]

Before white settlers came to the Cobb Estate, native Tongva people hunted deer, bobcats and rabbits in the brush. According to Robert H.

After Forsyth, Peterson […]

Parking Lot Graphic

Parking Lot Graphic

Trader Joe’s parking lot on a sunny day. I have groceries on the brain. Shopping is on today’s to-do list. ************* Update, 9am: you may note the 4:30am post time. I woke up moments before, remembering I hadn’t posted. This is rare. I don’t have a system exactly, but posting is an integral part of […]

Ce N’est Pas Une Tomate

Ce N’est Pas Une Tomate

Is it a picture of a tomato on the kitchen counter or is it art?  I’m not fishing for compliments. I’m trying to make a decision. When does an object become representative of something else? Where does art happen? On the kitchen counter? In the camera? On the computer screen? In the eyes of the […]

Not only is John from the San Gabriel Valley, he’s also a prolific author and an experienced writing teacher. Please welcome today’s […]
