A Rocky Hillside

This hillside on Lone Tree Road is riddled with rocks all the way to the top. It reminded me of the hillsides to the east of Lassen Volcanic National Park, in Northern California, that are landscaped with rocks, which had been spitted out of a volcano millions of years ago.

Seeing this hillside got me wondering if the rocks had hurled out of a long forgotten ancient volcano in San Benito county. What do you think?

A Mellow Yellow Tractor

I saw this old guy on Southside Road. Notice the crank? I wouldn't mind having it standing in our front yard. I can already see it sporting many kinds of flowers.

Monday Mellow Yellows is where I am today. Click here to see what bloggers around the world are posting.

Rain, Rain, Please Come Our Way

No, it hasn't rained. I caught this reflection on San Benito Street during one of the rare showers back in Spring.  Just thought it would be nice to see some rain, even if in a photo.

Long ago, I read that weather comes in cycles of seven—seven years of heavy rains, seven years of drought, and so on.  If that's true, I hope this summer  is the worst part of the drought  for California and we see rain soon. Let us continue to hope, wish, pray, and dance for rain.

Poetry in Motion

The fog was breaking up over the Gabilan range to the southwest of Hollister. Amazing, huh?

It's Skywatch Friday. Click here to check out what the sky looks like in other parts of the world.

Popol Vuh: Heart of Heaven

Over the next two weekends, El Teatro CampesiƱo, of San Juan Bautista, will offer free outdoor performances of Popol Vuh: Heart of Heaven in San Juan Bautista and Hollister. This original play is based on the sacred creation book, Popol Vuh, of the Mayans. It uses large-scale puppets, pageantry, and live music to tell the story of how the creators formed the  universe and earth. The play is narrated in English, Spanish, and Qu'iche Mayan. For a detailed description of the play, please click here.

On August 30, August 31, and September 1, at 3 PM,  Popol Vuh: Heart of Heaven, will be performed at the San Juan Soccer Field in San Juan Bautista. On September 6 and 7, at 3 PM, it will be presented at Dunne Park in Hollister. 

Remember, it's free! And, it's perfect for children of all ages. Be sure to bring your hats, water, and chairs.

California's Gold

Someone once told me that he knew I was a native of California because I described the summer hills as being golden. Not brown. Not yellow. But, golden. Because they are.

This golden scene is off of Airline Highway, also known as Highway 25, as in Take 25 to Hollister. It's just a few miles south of Hollister, in which you'll find none of those Abercrombie & Fitch's Hollister Co. stores. Thank goodness!
