Playing at the Yuba River & Lakes in Nevada City.

Aug. 9th – Aug. 11th, 2015

On the way to Ashland to pick up the girls, we deviated a bit and went to Sacramento to see one of Daniel’s friend blowing glass .. It was.. kind of boring .. but oh well.. so then since we had already deviated, why not pass by Nevada City and visit the Yuba River? It was fantastic! The river has speckles of gold everywhere. ..  the waters are so magical..

We went on a silent walk and enjoyed nature so much. Daniel found some special rocks with lines and spend some time in meditation and making a composition for others to find..

I sat on an island in the middle of the river,

surrounded by running water

 relaxing for some time.

The water was sweetly warm and the weather?

just perfect.

We loved Grass Valley in many ways. Good food, great people, 5 rhythm dance, amazing co-op, great nature …

There was one thing that made me cringe though: almost all homes had the US flag on their outside porch or doors.. I get scared when I see people displaying flags for no reason, no holiday.. In my eyes, flags are a way to separate. It’s a way to say ” I’m American (or whatever other country), look at me” .. scary mentality. It feels racist to me. Would never live in a place that display a behavior as such.. I guess, I’m judging here..anyhow.. We had a great vacation time.. Off to Ashland now.. :p
