MY ECLECTIC CHOICES

 

Eclectic is tongue in cheek, since in my psychological training it was considered a nasty word. Have to agree that psychology should not be lowered to a jack of all trades, as some have done, for the sake of earning more $$! But I am not a one-thing person,  more eclectic:)

The sunsets have been gorgeous since it’s cooler now.

Since the Native Americans are closely connected to nature, we watched a concert of song and dance of the first inhabitants of N. America the last weekend of September. Forgot to take pic of the drum, so powerful in their call to war.  Have seen Native dances before, but here they spoke about their culture. Was impressed with the meaning of honor, shown in  everything they said and did.

Native Sons of the Golden West. It looks like a front door, because there is no other door, in an alley in Auburn, CA.
According to Wikipedia it is a fraternal organization, limited to native born Californians, dedicated to historic preservation, structures, and places in the state of California. Auburn is a touristy town, with at least 10 art galleries, and a nice center in town.

  1. Sunrise was nice yesterday, but I wasn’t in a good place to photograph it. Your sunset was lovely!

    Aren’t those Pow-Wow’s moving! The drum, singers, and dancers are all quite interesting, and beautiful.

      We have a park very nearby with a lot of space to see skies. The first year we lived here, we took at least one pic of every sunset, lol!
      Am mesmerized with their dress, and their art. They are sooo creative visually and also their music!

  7. I love how you captured that little bird on the fountain, great pic. We’ve been having the most amazing skies here, too, in Ireland. Autumn is my favourite time of year – I love the colours.

    You must have gotten a chuckle when you read the description of my blog since I use the word eclectic in it 🙂

    Your comment on Skittles made me laugh- she was spayed before she came to me so no worries about her doing anything else but stretching in a very cute manner.

    I hope to post for Seasons on Sunday…but don’t know if I will have power. The worst of Matthew will hit us tomorrow and that is when the winds will pick up too. And there is another storm right behind him, Nicole. Besides the hurricane warning we have flash flood watch and warning and a tornado watch went p this afternoon and will be in effect until midnight-as of now.

  11. That’s a neat shot of the monuments in Old Town Sacramento. I know about the Native Daughters. Always wondered about whether there was also a Native Sons group.

    The reflection of those lights made me think of Christmas decorations. As you say beautiful sun rises and setting images at the moment and a wonderful series of photos this week.

    Thanks for your visit to my blog! Yes, I did fly to Vegas – 2 flights each way. I’m not a comfortable flier either, so it was fairly stressful for me. The best thing about the weather there was the fact that I went swimming in an outdoor pool in October – not something you can do in my climate! But otherwise, I wouldn’t like to be in a place that is always so hot and dry. What a beautiful shot you took of that fountain. I also really love the sunset!

    It is all good. I mean it!
    Happy Blue Monday.
