Volunteer

I transplanted a bush several weeks ago. It died. But up from the compost in the hole sprung a volunteer–a squash maybe, or a pumpkin–that’s so pretty and healthy I’m letting it take over the property. I might as well. I haven’t been lucky growing things, and I’m so pleased to have something grow that […]

Zen Monday: #157

Zen Monday: #157

photo by John Sandel 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. This […]

An August Personage

An August Personage

I liked to read books as a kid, but I didn’t like school. I was dutiful, I studied, I did what I was supposed to do and got the grades. But I preferred horseback riding, building forts and wading barefoot in the river–things there wasn’t time or weather for during the Illinois school year. Even […]

Mt. Wilson Week: Hubble and Beyond

Mt. Wilson Week: Hubble and Beyond

Let’s top off Mt. Wilson Week with a cool building on a hot day: the 100 inch telescope. The knowledge that there are galaxies other than our own is relatively new. It was discovered by Edwin Hubble who worked right here in this building. You can go inside, see his bentwood chair and cool off […]

Mt. Wilson Week: Solar Telescope

Mt. Wilson Week: Solar Telescope

I haven’t described the Mt. Wilson Observatory landscape to you. On a mountain top, wooded paths lead you amid the pines, and occasionally there looms a tower like something from a 1950’s “Mars attacks” movie. You’re not scared because it’s sunny out, everything’s in color and you can see the paint is peeling on the […]

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!” […]
