A chance of rain tonight, they say. Lovely, lovely rain. That rain comes with a “cold upper level low pressure system.” For two days. Snow in the grapevine,* maybe. In April. In southern California. You know, where we live in this here hot, desert climate. Bundle up. *“The Grapevine” is local vernacular for the highest [...]

Zen Monday: #92

Zen Monday: #92

In a few weeks we’ll celebrate 100 Zen Mondays. What do you think? Shall we have a contest of some sort? A prize? I welcome your suggestions as well as your comments about today’s Zen Monday photo. Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling [...]

Not That Kind of Passion

Not That Kind of Passion

When I need a break I go for a hike in the hills. But some situations call for drastic measures. When it gets that bad you need a complete departure from civilization. I remember going on church retreats when I was a pre-teen. They were fun, like going to camp. On one retreat I had [...]

Old Pasadena Vintage

Old Pasadena Vintage

Peering out from under the awning at the Pasadena Christian Center (yesterday’s post), take a look across the street. There’s a cute, little old building that houses the Old Pasadena Vintage Lighting Company at 2569 Colorado Blvd. The “about us” link on their site doesn’t work but the other links do. They get good reviews [...]

Cinematic Church

Cinematic Church

At 2588 East Colorado Blvd., among antique shops, used furniture stores and a cute-looking restaurant or two, you’ll find the Pasadena Christian Center which (obviously) used to be a movie theater. A snoop around the church’s website will tell you about their religious mission and practice. They’ve been in Pasadena in various locations since 1929, [...]

I’m trying to come up with something metaphorical to say about this photo. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.Don’t let things slip through the cracks.It’s the little things. Maybe I should try to come up with something original instead. Every day the world teems with traffic, marriage, war, shopping, [...]

iPhone Wednesday #7 – Shovel

iPhone Wednesday #7 – Shovel

John got this close-up of a shovel near the Devil’s Gate Dam not long ago. There’s still much work to be done over there. After rain last weekend the water has risen again, collecting debris behind the dam. Workers have corralled the debris (everything from driftwood to plastic bottles to stray socks) so when it’s [...]

No Nose In the Air

No Nose In the Air

This tower of wine glasses decorates (and functions) at the Nose Wine Cellar, where I was treated to a glass of prosecco and hors d’oeuvres after Saturday’s poetry reading at Vroman’s. Doesn’t that sound downright snobbish? Squinch up your nose and say it out loud: “a glahss of prossickoo and oh dewves ahfter the pewetry [...]

Zen Monday: #91

Zen Monday: #91

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. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Parallels

Parallels

We talked about the Equator Cafe a while back–a long while back–here on the ol’ blog. I was in the midst of my coffee shop quest and apparently this was once a coffee shop. Not any more. Asian fusion. It’s pretty good, too, with friendly service, good portions and reasonable prices. I had to giggle [...]
