About Pasadena and Beyond

Wrestling With AnIdea I may not know a lot about sports but I do know there is a difference between wrestling and boxing.  Things like Judo, Taekwondo and Karate can also confuse a field where expressions of self-defense collide with different artforms.  Details matter.  Moves too.  Shifting and ...
Points.  Pointlessness.And Pondering Points Of View.   When it comes to ActiveRain, a discussion of points can add to the continuing dialogue of this platform. Although that discussion doesn’t seem to be as rampant as I remember in the beginning days of my AR journey, it still exists. After all, ...
 ChitChat And JibberJab While I am not channeling Lewis Carroll, I am thinking of the different ways of connection.  Of course, conversation in all forms as shown in the communication expressed in this post title is but one of those.   Sometimes a connection comes from an unlikely source or even ...
 Some Of ThisAnd A Smidgen Of That Life can be confusing.  Whether it's within that place we call ones mind or outside in the real world bewildermant can happen.  It can seem somewhat odd when observing what’s going on in either place as we attempt to make sense of it.   Head-scratching can certa...
Forgetting June GloomAnd Celebrating June Bloom I have long heard of June Gloom.  In many, if not most, Southern California communities(and points up the coast as well) know, it is a close companion to Gray May.   Wikipedia has a condensed explanation about clouds, cooler(relatively, mind you) te...
Speaking FluentlyA Story Of Adaptation And Adjustment.  A Continuing Journey. Even though I am a native of this country as were my parents and each of my grandparents, I still struggle with many parts of the English language.  That said, I wish I could speak another language fluently but that has...
 Something About Quotes. . . I have long enjoyed quotes.  Reading them.  Being inspired by them.  Learning from them.  Wondering about them.  Nodding my head with them.  Disagreeing at times too.   On ActiveRain, I like quotes as they take center stage or are included as part of a post.  They wil...
 And Pondering Pockets. . . I have become fairly familiar with pockets.  Definitely not an expert but familiar.  The utility of them is well-known but their significance beyond the inside world where one might usually find them may not be so obvious.   Have you ever heard of deep pockets?  It’s a...
Out Of Hand. . . Although I understand its importance to many, if not most, of people on this planet, I am no longer attached to my cell phone as if it was another vital body part.  Sure, it often accompanies me but should I forget it on those rare occasions, it doesn’t cause me as much angst as ...
 Nearing Normal  As much as “normal” seems to be overused in regular times, these days it may lack the proper oomph or impact with its current overworked status.  Add terms like a return of normal, the new normal as well as similarly themed messages and it’s easy to see how the monotonous mumblin...
