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 [...]

Up ‘Til Now, Everything’s Been Fine

Boz lobbies for the things he wants. He sometimes wants a thing badly until he gets it, then he doesn’t want it any more. But he clings to his moments on the porch. He’ll stay there as long as he can, whether it’s chilly or hot. He must keep watch. What he sees he keeps [...]

Parc San Marino

Virginia Jones has two (count ‘em, two) daily photo blogs: Birmingham, Alabama Daily Photo, where she posts explorations of her home town, and Paris Through My Lens, where she posts her photographic visions of Paris, a town she and I have both dreamed of living in. I think Virginia and I both love our home [...]

In Defense of National Poetry Month

In Defense of National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month and in honor of this great occasion I am not going to post a poem I have written. Instead, I recommend you mark your calendar for this coming Saturday, April 10th at 5PM and meet me at Vroman’s to celebrate. Five poets (real ones), including Altadena’s own Linda Dove (In [...]

iPhone Wednesday #6 – iDrool

iTook this photo with John’s iPhone on a visit to the Apple Store on Colorado Blvd. A mere two days after the release of the iPad, people were waiting in line just to hold it. John has always used a Mac. I’m a recent convert. Since leaving my PC behind last summer I have had [...]

Patterns

Patterns

I have created another of those weeks with too much to do and too little time in which to do it. It’s not like I didn’t see it coming. The previous weeks have been the just as full so my prep time gets crammed into little places, usually referred to as “last minutes.” To change [...]
