Once upon a time in Pasadena, I found an American bridge to Mediterranean delights.

Once upon a time in Pasadena, I found an American bridge to Mediterranean delights.
I found that every street can be more amazing than the next.
I found that a mountain backdrop makes everything wonderful.

Once upon a time in Pasadena, I found whales of fortune riding waves of home pricing.
I found all that glitters is not gold... it's also wildfire, sushi and real estate.
I found that fancy cars--both old and new--are as common as palm trees.

Once upon a time in Pasadena, I found the earth quake under my feet, and life goes on.
I found that people freak out more over a little rain than they probably should.
I found that persistently pleasant weather is not the best character-builder.

Once upon a time in Pasadena, I found a history of America I never knew.
I found the lure of fame and Hollywood appear to be just a stone's throw away.
I found talented people to be a dime-a-dozen, singing sadder songs than they should be singing.

Once upon a time in Pasadena, I found that rich cities still desperately need God.
I found more homeless people than there should be.
I found humanity.

Once upon a time in Pasadena, I found a man, and his wife, desperately needing God.
I found humility.
I found the real me.

Thanks Alison! Yes don't we all have a compelling story to tell.

The cars have a futuristic aura of the 50s creating a strange manufacturing atmosphere. Your poetic description of Pasadena build the perfect framework. A wonderful job.

Love the image. It reminds me of a series of dreams I once had. The poem is very evocative and complimentary to the image. Good work, Joe!

Thank you Mike! That is cool that your dream is reminiscent of what I created. I do pray for insight when I create (write and draw), and I hope it shines through brightly.
