The June gloom didn’t stop music aficionados from gathering at Descanso Gardens for the opening of the Pasadena POPS summer picnic series this past weekend. Even though the weather was misty, the Spanish-inspired music and the tango dancers made the evening sizzle. Concert goers, with picnic baskets in tow, arrived early in order to enjoy feasts of many foods from around the world. Many of the tables were set with floral centerpieces that ranged from garden fresh to floral designer extravagant.

We wandered over to Descanso Gardens on a warm Friday evening to hear the Pasadena Pops performance of “A Night in the Tropics.” Len carried the cooler. His cousin, also named Anita, brought the burritos. I had packed salmon (broiled with a touch of wasabi), sodas, the gift jar of eggplant dip from France, crackers, organic strawberries and a mason jar with a thin-sliced blood orange, two smushed-up strawberries and Grey Goose vodka. It was one of those wonderful La Cañada nights.

The city of La Cañada Flintridge and the Valley Sun co-sponsor the series, which continues each Sunday through Aug. 27. Thierry, who has been labeled as the Jimi Hendrix of Zydeco music, will be marking his 27th birthday on the day of his performance here. He was born in Richmond and raised in the East Bay area, but has deep French Creole roots.

I?ve always been a seeker, searching for the meaning of circumstance and asking that timeless question, what makes life significant? I?ve learned that life should be lived, not analyzed. And regardless of whether or not we understand, the magical play continues and it is up to us to contribute a verse. The question is not one of understanding, but what our verse will be. This time of year, I am often vulnerable to such musings. Christmas evokes such thoughts, especially in an era where meaning is skewed toward triviality.

I've always been a seeker, searching for meaning and asking that timeless question, "What makes life significant?" I've contemplated the perplexities of existence, trying to understand moments of euphoria as though they were the result of a simple mathematical equation easily reproduced. For me, two plus two has never been four. Life should be lived, not analyzed. Regardless of understanding, the magical play continues; and it is up to us to contribute a verse. The question is not one of understanding, but "What will our verse be?"

Anyone who enjoys listening to lively music under the oaks on a Sunday afternoon is sure to agree that Descanso's summer concert series in July 'Sounds Like Fun.' Three concerts, all by popular performers and all free with Gardens admission, will begin at 2 p.m. at the Under the Oaks Theater. Seats for each hour-long concert are first come, first served, and the music will entertain visitors throughout the open-air theater area. The first concert, Sunday, July 1, will feature the jazzy group Incendio with a polyrhythmic swirl of Latin American music forms (boleros, cumbias, salsa, tango, mambo and Peruvian valses criollos)

Sway your hips and dance the evening away to the rhythm of the music. Long before the band was even there, dozens of residents and non-residents took up nearly every foot of turf with shade at last Sunday's Music-in-the-Park concert. While the crowd awaited the first song to play children played ball and chased each other around. Meanwhile the Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic band was on their way. Once on site, without any rest the band quickly unpacked their equipment, tuned up their instruments and began to jam. Some anxious dancers didn't hesitate to jump on their feet and dance in step to the harmonious tunes by the accordion.
