am writing this as I hear blimps flying overhead and the faint sound of
marching bands in the distance. People from all over the country are
lined up along Colorado Blvd in Pasadena watching the Annual Rose
Parade. I live walking distance from the parade and Rose Bowl. I
enjoy sketching the floats in the "Float Barns" up close days before
they travel along the parade route. For thirteen years I have sketched
them. It's a wonderful tradition and to see them decorated with flowers,
seeds, bark, spices...
