The Rose Bowl and the lightly frosted San Gabriel Mountains

Dear ——–,

The skies have finally cleared after a week of rain. Everyone was out today even though it was a little brisk. Bryan and I barely found parking in Old Town Pasadena when we went to Le Pain Quotidien for lunch. It’s been a while since we have spent an afternoon together because Bryan has been recording and at the whim of the band. We decided to go for a long walk with our sweet, but senior whippet mix around the Rose Bowl. We could see a dusting of snow like powdered sugar at the tops of some of the nearby San Gabriel Mountains. I don’t remember seeing snow this low in years. We won’t have the time to go to Mammoth, but maybe we can steal away to Mt. Baldy Sunday for a quick slide down the mountain.

I'm a journalist based in Los Angeles who has always said that writing postcards for a living would be a dream job. The posts -- short enough to fit on an actual postcard -- chronicle recent travels near and far. I could blab on about being inspired by epistolary novels, the short poems of Emily Dickinson, and the New Yorker's "Talk of the Town" pieces, but I'll just say that I'm aiming to give you a sense of flavor of a place without boring you to death. Wish you were here!
