The Pasadena connection? You may wonder; it's there.
The daughter of the Avila Adobe household on Olvera Street, married Manuel Garfias. alfter California became a part of the U.S., Garfias was the first owner of Rancho San Pascaul under U.S. law. Much of Rancho San Pascual would be later incorporated into the City of Pasadena.
All of this is interesting, maybe even fun to learn, to us adults. When you are eight or four, this might not be considered fun.
What was fun for Lili and Cheli was being "encouraged" to be a part of the Politi mural. I suspect it was easier for them to connect since there were so many children and animals throughout.
They each had their way
...of becoming a part of the mural.
I gave them no specific direction.
They acted out what some of us may feel in hearts or see in our minds when we look at art
and think about how we relate to it
and it to us.
I tell you, it is a busy day.
