Win Yerself a Quality Pasadena Tee

Win Yerself a Quality Pasadena Tee

What building is this? First one to answer correctly gets a Pasadena t-shirt (size small, that’s all I’ve got). The shirt’s an attractive navy blue with sophisticated gold lettering. I’m in possession of this nice, new shirt partly thanks to the generosity of Ann Erdman, Pasadena PIO, and partly thanks to the fact that I [...]

Big Bang University

Big Bang University

Locals will recognize NASA’s Caltech/Jet Propulsion Lab, which looks like a college campus. I remember being surprised about that when I first saw it. I think I expected something high-tech and sleek, like from a sci-fi movie about a “jet propulsion lab,” because I didn’t know what a “jet propulsion lab” was. I still don’t. [...]

Zen Monday: #59

Zen Monday: #59

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 provocative or, failing that, at least something odd. As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I’ll add a label to last week’s to identify it if necessary [...]

Feels Like the 101st Time

Feels Like the 101st Time

You know those things you walk by a hundred times but don’t notice? These mailboxes are one of those things for me. John and I lived in beautiful Altadena when we first got married and I became a regular customer of some businesses there. One was Merit Dry Cleaners on Mariposa and the other was [...]

Rattled

Rattled

This photo has layers. In the top right corner you see Altadena in the distance. I think of the next layer as the row of sagebrush that lines the path. Then there’s the sunny part of the path, then the shady part. Then, in the shaded foreground, see that curved mark like someone took a [...]

Sometimes I think I struggle. And it’s true, I do. All humans have struggles. But our struggles are relative. So after a long working day it’s good–no, it’s a blessing–to enjoy a glass of wine, a backyard garden and good literature. Literature, in a variety of forms (reading it, writing it, discussing it) is my [...]

Moi Aussi

I usually do my posts in the early evening, then set the timer on this here Blogger thingy to post at a minute after midnight. (Don’t ask me why I set it for a minute after; I don’t have an answer.) I’ve spent a good deal of time researching a post and I’ve come to [...]

Swinging to the Bard

Swinging to the Bard

Is it already Wednesday? I’m still telling you about my weekend. On Sunday I crossed over into Laurie’s turf and caught the last of this year’s free concerts in South Pasadena’s lovely Garfield Park. My neighbors had been taking their kids every week this summer and I didn’t want to miss my last chance. The [...]

Precious Heirlooms

Precious Heirlooms

No hothouse tomato ever came close. I bought a huge bag full of heirloom tomatoes from the Jaime Farms booth at the Pasadena Farmer’s Market last Saturday. I got a few of each color: light green and dark, subtle yellow, bright orange and all varieties of red from pale to brassy. We’ve been eating them [...]
