Bungalow Heaven, located in Pasadena, California, is a rare and mostly intact collection of over 800 homes built from the 1900s through the 1930s. The history of this neighborhood is woven from the threads of several rich and fascinating stories that include the settlement of Pasadena, the evolution of the American Arts & Crafts movement and social and cultural changes of the early 20th century.

Blue Angels

Dear Candace,
Do you believe in angels?
From V. D.
Los Angeles, California


Dear V. D.,
Yes!
But, if you are asking me: “Do you believe in androgynous beings that have wings?"
—no.

  Question answered


Dear Candace,
I was inquiring if some information regarding angels could be sent to me. I’d appreciate it.
From L. S.
Framingham, Massachusetts


Dear L. S.,
The concept of angels starts in childhood.
We are told:
“You’re being an angel today.”
“You’re a cute little angel.”
“Be an angel.”
Most people have a basic concept of what an angel does, but few have the under-standing of who an angel is.

  Question answered

Dear Candace,
I’m curious about something. My curiosity is really not, but I want your answer to this question. I want you to tell me why is it that any reference to an angel is of a Caucasian ethnicity? I mean angels can’t be limited to a racial aspect. The only reason I ask this is that I’m looking for some diversity in the pictures that I see of angels. Plus most pictures and statues of such are of a European origin. This is not an attack on you.

From W. A.
Farmington, Missouri


Dear W. A.,
Egyptians drew the soul as either a bird with a human head or as a shadow. The Romans drew the human soul as a small female with butterfly-like wings. Later in time the Romans and the Greeks drew the human soul simply as a butterfly! In medieval Christian art, the human soul is depicted as a small baby floating away from its adult deceased body. The Renaissance period showed little youths leaving dead bodies behind on earth.

  Question answered

Dear Candace,
My question is an art history one: when did angels first be painted with wings?
From J.
High Point, North Carolina


Dear J.,
Since humans started to draw.
A Sumerian stone carving relief of a butterfly-winged human (angel?) in Iraq is from around 3,000 BC. Sumer was a group of cities/states around the Lower Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.
A stone carving of a bird-winged human with a bird-head (angel?) was common in Mesopotamia (now Iraq, eastern Syria, southeastern Turkey, and southwestern Iran) around 2,000 B.C.

  Question answered

Dear Candace,
What do you make of Sylvia Browne?
From B. C.
Hollywood, California


Dear B. C.,
I have not met Sylvia Browne nor read any of her books. Well, I’ve read a few pages standing in a bookstore and online. (She has had 35 books published by Hay House, Inc., headquartered in Carlsbad, CA.) But, I have watched many of her TV appearances over the years on Larry King Live and The Montel Williams Show.
While I am aware that Sylvia Browne—a “psychic”— has sold over a million books and people are still hiring her for spiritual help, I personally don’t understand why. I find her to be abrasive, unfriendly, arrogant, and a bully. She interrupts people and has an air of superiority that I find offensive.

Parade

Cirque du Soleil's Corteo
by Candace Frazee
Review: October, 2007

Corteo

Angel lovers will adore Corteo - a show about a clown who dies and goes to heaven. Angels watch over him as he sees his carnival life flash before his eyes. A variety of different winged-angels then invite and assist his entry into heaven.

Circ 1

Our family delighted in seeing and participating in Corteo at The Forum in Los Angeles. Yes, I was one of a handful of participants that got to give a little performer a boost as she drifted (attached to enormous balloons) over the audience! Her feet were smaller than my hand. My push didn't lift her more than an inch, so she said,
"Whoopsy. Try again." Hysterical!

Cirque du Soleil in their enormous blue and yellow tents (with wonderful portable bathrooms) never disappoints in giving an ethereal, uplifting, exciting experience of acrobatics, dance, music, singing, and theatre. Corteo performed in the round was especially thrilling—a feeling of being part of the parade.
