An Ocean

An Ocean

When I moved to Hollywood I imagined life in the fast lane: you know, I’d be a movie star and date incredibly rich men. I’d live in Beverly Hills where my neighbors would be as fabulous as I was. When I wasn’t working on my next Oscar-winning film I’d summer on exclusive islands in the [...]

Plate 38

Plate 38

I’m not one to stand in line for the opening of a movie. I won’t camp out to be the first to buy the latest product from Apple. I figure if these things are any good, they’ll be around for a while and I can take advantage of them when sanity sets in and the [...]

The Bridge is Back

The Bridge is Back

The Colorado Street Bridge party is back! Do I recall we didn’t have it last year? Sure enough. The 2009 event was canceled due to budget cuts. Well, hallelujah! It’s back. Food, music, food, people, fun for kids and more food all begin at 6pm on Saturday night–that’s tomorrow, July 10th. Sponsored by Pasadena Heritage, [...]

Thank You

Thank You

As Bellis said, it was “like Christmas.” Thank you, Barbara Ellis (aka Bellis), Karin Bugge (aka Altadena Hiker) and Michael Coppess (aka East of Allen) for helping create a terrific groundswell yesterday, a blogging extravaganza to express our communal desire to keep soccer fields out of Hahamongna Watershed Park. And thank you, Pasadena/Altadena blogging community, [...]

Hahamongna Blog Day

Hahamongna Blog Day

Counselors from Tom Sawyer Camp set up a learning center on the shore of a natural lake at Hahamongna Watershed Park (click to enlarge). This Monday, July 12th, Pasadena’s City Council will discuss and probably decide once and for all whether or not to build soccer fields in Hahamongna Watershed Park. One field is planned [...]

John and I are a little in love with the light in our house, especially at the day’s extremes. Sometimes, around sunset, I’ll catch him standing still, head cocked as though he’s listening for something. But I know better. He’s just watching the light working its magic. I do the same thing. If you peeked [...]

Zen Monday: #102

Zen Monday: #102

Welcome to Zen Monday. In case this is your first: 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. There’s no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, [...]

Amber Waves

Amber Waves

O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! America the Beautiful, the 1895 poem by Katherine Lee Bates and set to Samuel Ward’s music, has several [...]

Solar Salad

Solar Salad

When I moved here from Illinois I thought of living in southern California as a vacation on another planet, especially when it came to plant life. Sometimes I still do. The brownish stream on the lower right of this photo is bean pods. The branches above the stream show where the pods came from. What [...]

Theme Day: Reflections

Theme Day: Reflections

Nordstrom shoppers at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall. Here it is the first of the month again, and that means a City Daily Photo theme day. On the first I like to update you how many blogs we have in the family (1243), and today I’ll also mention the newest, Oxford Daily Photo (UK). I [...]
