Zen Monday: #178


Zen Monday's the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the picture's about. There's no competition, no right or wrong. We're here to have fun.

Sorry about the quality. My iPhone is very, very old.

(p.s. I have a new piece on Patch that has nothing to do with Zen Monday.)

No apology on the quality... kinda goes w/the name of the building...then again, the building looks new so how could it be a resource for aging info.?

Trish said...

aging resource...shouldn't you leave the ancient iPhone there and find a new one? and aren't there apps to make photos look like this?

am having trouble focusing on the subject. I suppose that means *I* am an aging resource too.

now where did I leave my glasses? Oh right, on top of my head!

Bellis said...

I take my old PC there a few times a week so he can reminisce with other redundant PCs about the good old days when he was our most useful resource - before a malware virus addled his brain.

old (house) and looking good(kept up)

Tash said...

wish I could read that sign...maybe if I remembered how to enlarge?

Petrea Burchard said...

Seriously? You can't read the sign? No wonder nobody's commenting.

Just click on the photo, Tash.

Tash is kidding … but Bellis may not be.

I work in this building--we are now called "Heritage Clinic", but have kept the CFAR sign as we have been in the community for over 30 years... we are a mental health agency serving older adults in the SGV. Thanks for taking such a nice pic!

Might I suggest they replace "aging" with "pre-owned" or "lightly used."

Deb said...

I have plenty of stuff I could donate.................

Michael Coppess said...

Who are you calling an aging resource?

TheChieftess said...

This looks like the Women's Club on Colorado...or the one in South Pas...Love those old craftsman buildings!!!
But then, I'm an aging resource and rather prefer the charming old styles!!!

I think that's on N. El Molino, just north of the 210, & I've driven by it many times. Always wished I wood sea someone at the bldg to ask them what it's all about. Now I know someone - thanks, Petrea! Tell us more.

postie said...

I think Im in the right place . My view is fuzzy around the edges and ahead I see the place to get some new resources to my aging.

Ms M said...

The wording on the sign conjures stacks of crinkled-paged reference books, tattered phone books, crumbling pages of old census data -- aging resources. The oval shadowing is just perfect :-)

Steven said...

For only the 2nd time, my pen has no zen. I must be missing something. But then again I am really old.

Katie said...

Now I know where I'll send my old work phone when I'm soon forced to retire it.

Margaret said...

How do you age a resource?

Mister Earl said...

I believe that's an E.D. clinic.

WV: "moncoula" Moncoula dan yours.

Petrea Burchard said...

Zen Monday often baffles me. (I suppose that's what it's for.)

I'll put up a photo and be sure--absolutely sure--I'm going to get certain reactions, and they don't happen. And the ones I do get are so completely different from what I expected.

It's why I love Zen Monday.

Cafe, the Center For Aging Resources--well, okay, the Heritage Clinic--is exactly where you say it is.

Mister Earl. What?

Ms. M, your response was kind of what I was thinking. Every time I go by this place I think the sign is confusing. Either it's a place for people who are aging, or they've got stacks of rotting two by fours in the back yard.

But Unknown, you've solved my dilemma. Thank you for your nice comment. I hope you'll keep the sign.

Hee hee. I do love it when people name their organisations ambiguously. Ah, the joy of language.

Kate said...

Oh, I wonder if they have a way to lift my aging eyelids so I could see a bit better!
