Eliot School: The Quiet Storm

Eliot School: The Quiet Storm

Something’s going on in Pasadena’s schools. Teachers are teaching and kids are learning. Quietly. Without making a lot of noise about it. As I mentioned in yesterday’s comments, they don’t use the lockers at Eliot School in Altadena. Principal Peter Pannell noted a couple of reasons, the obvious one being that kids can’t use them [...]

Eliot School

Eliot School

I think everyone who drives up Lake Avenue to Altadena wants to take a picture of Eliot School. Founded in 1931 and named for Charles W. Eliot (who was a president of Harvard University and responsible for introducing the elective course system), Eliot is a middle school, part of the Pasadena Unified School District and [...]

A Corner in Time

A Corner in Time

Just because I couldn’t find much information about the old Owl Drug Store building online yesterday doesn’t mean the information isn’t out there. It means I don’t get to spend as much time at the library as I’d like to. But sometimes I’m lucky and the information comes to me in from Pasadena citizens both [...]

Owl Drug Store

Owl Drug Store

The old Owl Drug Company doorway now leads into Old Town Pasadena’s J. Crew store at 3 W. Colorado Blvd. The corner of Colorado and Fair Oaks is where local commerce began. Finding information online about this building and about Owl Drug isn’t easy. The building, in Zig Zag Modern style, was built in 1930 [...]

Happy Anniversary, John

Happy Anniversary, John

11/2/09 Shakespeare Garden Gazebo, Huntington Gardens About my husband, my long-sought and happily-found partner in life: I’m sure of his love and he’s sure of mine. We trust and respect each other. We support each other’s individuality, work and ideals. We have separate goals and mutual goals, and in the short time we’ve been together [...]

Zen Monday: #70

Zen Monday: #70

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. I look for something worth thinking about or, failing that, at least something odd or silly. Sometimes you have to look closely. As I post each new Zen Monday photo I’ll add [...]

Theme Day: Doorways

Theme Day: Doorways

Pasadena is a foothill town, pressed up against the San Gabriel Mountains. We face nature every day, whether nature likes it or not. In places like this, sometimes you can see entryways to the underworld of faerie. There’s at least one on the Sam Merrill Trail, not far from the first mile marker. It doesn’t [...]

Halloween

Halloween

Hey. It’s the day. I wanted something truly weird. Here’s a good article about Halloween. Paragraph two tells you how to correctly pronounce “Samhain” and impress your friends. You might enjoy this delightfully sinister animated short film called The Sandman, directed by Paul Berry. (You might not.) Have fun out there tonight! Be safe! Be [...]

Last Day, October 2009

Last Day, October 2009

October 23, 5:18pm The idea of the project I started last month is to take a picture from the same spot and post it periodically, then watch as the spot changes throughout the year. I plan to post on the last day of each month, but since tomorrow’s Halloween, this time I’m a day early. [...]

Autumn Lore

Autumn Lore

Maybe I like the weather here because the only thing I have to compare it to is that of northern Illinois. Chicago nights get below fifty degrees this time of year. Some people love that. I am not some people. Santa Ana winds (as opposed to sleet coming off Lake Michigan) are all the bluster [...]
