    Walking around the city...

    by photochaser Updated May 1, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walking around the city looking at all the wonderful historic houses and talking to all the nice people that live here.

    Fondest memory: I have lived in Redlands for 8yrs and can't think of another city that makes you feel so at home. The people are nice, the area is clean and safe. It just feels good to live in a 'city' that feels more like a town.

  • Redlands has an outdoors arena...

    by TrueBeliever Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Redlands has an outdoors arena called the 'Redlands Bowl' that hosts symphonies, operas, and plays every summer. If a traveller has the good fortune to pass through Redlands or visit in the Summertime, this is the best place to go. The arena is comprised of long rising bench seats and a modest stage with a big overhanging stone archway running its length. They have some beautiful music ranging from orchestras to a single man with a guitar. The bowl also presents operas and plays of an excellent quality which are a must for any traveller to see.

    Fondest memory: The first Summer I spent living in Redlands I went and saw an opera at the Redlands Bowl that was set in Egyptian times. Although I had hated opera before, I was awestruck at the powerful mood the performers could evoke and the arena just seemed alive with their self-expressive energy. I wouldn't mind seeing another opera again next summer. Besides the music and opera, the Redlands Bowl hosts plays and, although I haven't been to one, I'm sure they're just as good as the other performances that I have seen. Go check it out yourself.

  • You must see a play if you're...

    by TrueBeliever Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You must see a play if you're going to be in town for any length of time. The last play I saw was called 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' (by William Shakespeare of course) at the beginning of the year and I was awestruck with what a masterpiece it was. It's a comedy, but is both thought-provoking and bust-a-gut hillarious. It will be something I will remember for the rest of my life.
    My favorite lines:
    'I never may believe these antique fables, nor fairy toys. Lovers and madmen have such seething brains...The lunatic, the lover, and the poet are of imagination all compact. One sees more devils than vast hell can hold. THAT is the madman. The lover, all as frantic, see's Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt. The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven...And as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown..the poet's pen turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing a local habitation and a name...'
    Now imagine these words spoken passionately by an actor standing in front of you. Just as music is better live and in person, so is the story played out in real-time before your eyes--rather than on television or in a movie theater. Whoever you are, wherever you are, if you have any small part of you that loves stories and the passion invoked within them when they place a mirror in front of our eyes and make us weep or laugh at who we are, go see a play. You won't regret it...

  • One day I was at a...

    by TrueBeliever Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One day I was at a do-it-yourself car wash with a handful of quarters plucking one after the other into the quarter-munching machine. After I was done washing my car I thought 'Ah what the hell, I'll vacuum too.' But as I looked over at the vacuum machines, my eyes were diverted to an old woman rummaging through the nearby trash cans. She had a cane and trembled as she walked from trash can to trash can. I looked down at my remaining quarter--excatly two dollars worth left...The woman hesitated as I approached her and wre a look of bewilderment as I put 8 quarters in her hand. She looked down and began to cry quietly. But she kept trying to hold back her tears in dignity as she said, 'thank you sir...God bless you...' She slowly walked away, leaving me with both a good feeling at what I had done, and an overwhelming feeling of having been confronted with this harsh reality in a country of prosperity
    ...and the people continued washing their cars...
