Looking Through the Gap

When you stand next to the Old City Hall on Fifth Street and look straight across through the gap between the Vault and the Granada Theater,  you'll see a wonderful sight and site.

Today, I'm hooking up with Sundays in My City. Click here to see photos of other cities in the world.

Looking Good, Hollister!

Click. Click. 

"I love how downtown looks with those mountains in the background," I said to the Husband as I inched closer into the street to get a better picture of the Gavilans to the south of Hollister.

You know what I mean.

At Sunset

Where oh where am I? On a hill above the east end of Cienega Road. I'm looking southeast. Somewhere down there is Highway 25. Yes, I'm sure that's it.

Yes, there were lots of gorgeous cars at last week's annual Downtown Hollister Street Festival and Car Show. Also, lots of people of all ages enjoying the cars, the live music and performances, and free watermelon. What did you like most?

Indian Canyon Storytelling and Indigenous Gathering


A couple of Saturdays ago, the Husband and I with the buddy Dave, spent a joyous afternoon at the 17th Annual Storytelling and Indigenous Gathering held in Indian Canyon, off of Cienega Road. Story tellers and artists of the Ohlone, Chumash, Cherokee, Aztec, and other indigenous communities came together that afternoon to tell traditional and new tales in words, music, and dance. Hosts for the event were Ann-Marie Sayers, the chairwoman of Indian Canyon, and artist and activist Kanyon Sayers-Roods. (By the way, did you know that Indian Canyon is the only recognized "Indian Country" along the central coast?)

One of the featured speakers was Eddie Madril, a member of the Pascua Yacqui tribe of Southern Arizona and Northern Mexico, whose last story was the hoop dance. These photos only give you an inkling of the beauty and wonder of his story. Here's a Youtube video with Madril in which he talks about and performs the hoop dance.
