Zen Monday: #148

Zen Monday: #148

I know it’s a holiday but it’s also Monday. I wouldn’t leave you hanging without your Zen. Is this your first Zen Monday at PDP? Here’s the deal: today’s the day I don’t give you my interpretation of the photo. Instead, you give me yours. There’s no winner, no prize (although I admit folks get […]

Sermon on the Mountain

Sermon on the Mountain

St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment. (He was pronounced a saint in July of 1228. Do you suppose they used the word “environment” then?) He was many other things as well; interesting guy. It’s a refreshing surprise to come across such works in our ramblings. It makes me feel privileged […]

Summer

Summer

Those would be limes. That would be salt. And over there is a pitcher of watermelon margaritas. Summer’s here. It’s official. I have a list of things to do this weekend:hikegardenbask bathe the dogthinkclean up the pile on my deskhave an iced coffee on the back porchhave an iced coffee on the front porchread I’ll […]

Favorite Place in Glendale

Favorite Place in Glendale

My Burbank friend and I have finally found the perfect middle ground: Favorite Place (that’s its name) in Glendale. I’m not a foodie. I’m not a restaurant reviewer. I can’t describe the delicate blabbedy blah on the palate or the minglings of fine spices in the this and the that. What I can tell you […]

Seriously, Though

Seriously, Though

It’s safe to say that every moment in one’s life is the result of all previous moments, but some moments are more culminating than others. Every once in a while there’s the rare instance that requires you to stop and remember what brought you there. It’s a gratitude moment. It’s standing at the end of […]

Guest Post: Dianne Emley and "Love Kills"

Guest Post: Dianne Emley and "Love Kills"

Today we welcome guest author Dianne Emley, best-selling crime novelist. Her Nan Vining “thrillogy” is set in Pasadena and features a female Pasadena Police Detective. Dianne was the first author I interviewed for PDP and she’s been a friend of the blog ever since. I always wondered how she researched the books and today we […]

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion

I’ve always had a desire to travel back in time. I’ve even written a novel about it called Camelot & Vine which, fingers crossed, is about to embark on its journey to get published. (I’ll keep you up-to-date.) I’m not the only one with this desire. We want to go back and take a look–safely, […]

Zen Monday: #147

Zen Monday: #147

Here’s your Monday Zen, a chance to give us your thoughts on the photo without me telling you what I think it’s about. There’s no right or wrong, no secret, no prize. Just tell us what the picture makes you think or feel. Have fun and enjoy the other comments, as I do every Monday. […]

No Darwin Awards Yet

No Darwin Awards Yet

Close, but no cigar. I wonder where that saying came from. We had a good time here Friday making fun of predictions of the rapture. We weren’t the only ones. The internet is rife with photos of piles of clothes left empty. At parties last night, people celebrated not being raptured. A friend told me […]

Thank You, San Rafael School

Thank You, San Rafael School

A distinguished group invited me to speak to them yesterday morning. I was summoned to their headquarters at 9:15 a.m. They were the bright, charming 5-year-olds of Pasadena’s San Rafael School. These kids are part of a dual language immersion program, where English-speaking and Spanish-speaking kids go to school together. Most of their classes are taught […]
