I haven't posted any 'just photos' since like March or something so, since I have a couple floating around cluttering up the space on my deaktop, I think I will. And in no particular order. Well, alright, some order is involved.

We ventured forth into downtown San Jose one evening to see The Book of Mormon and while on our way to the theater, we passed by what I think is a lovely view of the Guadalupe River Parkway which is three miles of winding river and parklands running through our fair city. Biking, running, walking all that healthy stuff is done within it. Before the parkway, when it was just a river, it would flood, especially in the downtown area, frequently. No more. The parkway not only makes the environs around the river more beautiful and useful, but more safe as well.

My take on the eclipse, little dancing half-mmons on the ground. Me included!!

These candles represent the Great Balckout of August 2017 which lasted a nerve-wracking 10 HOURS, from 6pm to 4am. How we made it through I'll never know. And honestly, if it hadn't been for my fully-charged Kindle this night could have ended very differently.
              Saturday's temp, indoors, outdoors, a day I, personally, zombie-ed through with only the vaguest of recollections remaining. Weird how that can happen.

Thank you, Kinwad!!!

From YouTube:
Erin Mackey and Randy Harrison (Dot and George in SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE) perform "Move On" in the Guthrie recording studio, accompanied by Musical Director Mark Hartman. See them onstage in SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE



I'm including the painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, as well as an image, from  a different production, of the painting. I love the little cut-out animals!
          It adds a bit of poignancy when you realize that Georges Seurat only lived another five years after this painting was completed, dying at 32 years of age. You can't help but wonder what else he might have accomplished given the chance to grow into his mature style.
