Pasadena Magazine is beautiful!! It's not only exquisitely designed, but it's interesting, informative and well written. I'm so impressed with the variety of articles. Writer Maryann Hudson has a great story, "The Journey Continues," on Pasadena before and after the revitalization, which I really enjoyed. And Iva-Marie Palmer - who posted a comment below - provided vitally important info in her piece, "A Night Out for $20." Now that will come in handy!
I truly appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the premiere issue. And the launch party at the Vista del Arroyo Bungalows was impressive - jazz and rock bands in different bungalows and food catered by Katana. And, best of all, I got to see a lot of the wonderful people I have been lucky to meet earlier when writing my articles.
The subjects of my first article were four inspiring women who began Truly Mom. Each of the women are genuinely sweet people who impressed me with their incredible gratitude and appreciation for life and their determination.
My other article is on the down-to-earth, compassionate and extremely busy Dr. D*R*E*W (I spelled it out that way because earlier I had a weird incident with someone blog-searching his name and misusing a photo I took of him.) I truly appreciate him letting me tag along to his lecture, his home and KROQ.
Yep, it was an exciting evening. I even got to meet Ernest in accounting, who overheard me speaking to someone. He tapped me on the shoulder and said, "What's your name?"
I told him and he said, "Oh, I just sent you a check."
