Yet, her warm smile and twinkling eyes hide the struggles and pains that plagued her since childhood. ?My vision started getting blurry when I was about 9 years old,? said Narayan. ?From then on, it became more and more difficult to see.? Narayan suffered from keratoconus, a condition in which the cornea is in the abnormal shape of a cone, instead of a sphere.

On Monday night, in true La Cañada Flintridge holiday tradition, the septic system went out a few hours before our Seder. Luckily, the cesspool pumping guy successfully pumped it, with moments to spare. The septic system rebelled against the days of spring cleaning. Cupboards were emptied and cleaned. Dishes were removed and replaced with Passover dishes. The house was scrubbed within inches of sanity. All sorts of objects ended up in the garbage disposal, including garbage, which apparently is anathema, not only to the disposal itself, but also to the septic system.

Gardens across the nation participated Friday in National Public Gardens Day, an event designed to raise awareness of public gardens and their role in promoting education and environmental stewardship in the communities they serve. In the spirit of the occasion, Descanso Gardens gave visitors a peek inside its own Harvest Garden, a veritable “secret garden” that has been in operation for nearly 60 years but has never opened its gates to the public. The Harvest Garden gives local students between the ages of ages 8 and 22 who are living with disabilities a chance to roll up their sleeves, get their hands dirty and learn about the long journey involved in getting food from its source to the plate.
