Yesterday’s birthday didn’t turn out like I thought it would. We picnicked at Vasquez Rocks Monday because I thought John had to work on Tuesday. I figured, on my actual birthday I’d do a little writing, have a nice walk with Boz and clean up the pile on my desk (forget it, that’ll never happen). [...]

It Takes Years to Make One of These

It Takes Years to Make One of These

Sometimes I need to let my lungs expand into wider spaces than city streets can hold, and let my eyes rest on something other than what they see day in and day out. Vasquez Rocks is named for Tiburcio Vasquez, a nineteenth-century outlaw who used the rocks as a hideout and even reportedly passed through [...]

Zen Monday: #88

Zen Monday: #88

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 [...]

Primavera II

Primavera II

Apparently it’s my tradition to post a photo of Timothy Rutt for the annual Primavera celebration. Tim is the brains behind Altadena’s powerhouse Altadenablog, and Primavera is the San Gabriel Valley Blogger potluck Tim hosts along with Altadena Hiker Karin Bugge, Susan Carrier of Open Mouth Insert Fork and Cancer Banter, and Debbie Swanson Patrick [...]

Holy Hopscotch

Holy Hopscotch

You’ll probably have to enlarge this one. I found this chalk work in front of the David Allan Hubbard Library of the Fuller Theological Seminary as I traversed the campus yesterday. This calls up everything from philosophical arguments to historical discussions to cheap jokes, not to mention high praise for whoever did this fine work. [...]

Blogging for Your Business

One of the perks of having a blog is that when I have something to promote I get free advertising! I’ll be giving a salon-type talk (comfy/cozy) on Blogging for Your Business: Ten Tips for Putting Your Best Cyberfoot Forward, Thursday, April 1st at the Pasadena Women’s City Club. If you’ve been thinking about starting [...]

Henry’s Back Yard: Part Three

Henry’s Back Yard: Part Three

Continued from Tuesday and Wednesday… Karin the Altadena Hiker is a docent at the Huntington Library and Gardens, which privileges her to explore parts of the grounds that aren’t open to the public. Inside Karin beats the heart of an explorer; give her a piece of ground and she will seek out its every corner. [...]

Henry’s Back Yard: Part Two

Henry’s Back Yard: Part Two

Continued from yesterday… Backroads wander through hidden parts of the Huntington property, unfolding the story of those who lived there a hundred years ago and of those who live there now. This old, stone culvert begins at the northern end of the unused acres. Huntington decent docent Karin and I passed it early in our [...]

Henry’s Back Yard: Part One

Henry’s Back Yard: Part One

Down a secret road, where the public isn’t allowed… …a grove of orange trees grows. The trees are about a hundred years old, I figure. Big, fluffy trees with branches that droop to the ground, where little purple wildflowers reach up to kiss the oranges. The trees are precious and well cared for. They grow [...]
