spirithorse21: (A Toast to Friends)
Jeremy and I hit up a free festival today at the Indianapolis Museum of Art in their new nature preserve. We got there toward to the end of the festival when it had started to cool off a bit and the sun was setting so it was easier to find some shade. A free concert was the main attraction...a band from Minnesota called Cloud Cult. I'm not quite sure how to describe them, but the vibe really set the outdoor, art/nature setting well. They had some folk feel, but also some synth feel. They had strings, guitars, and horns playing and it made this beautiful earthy sound. I really enjoyed it in the outdoor setting with the trees and the wind, and also the children playing all around.


This was one of the songs they played, called Love You All

I told Jeremy this would be good music to play for our child. It's very soothing, even keel, and peaceful. Jeremy pointed out that it has a heartbeat-like rhythm to it. I think I'll be getting a few CDs of these guys.

The crowd was largely parents in their 30s and 40s. All outdoorsy types, all with a bit of tree hugger in them. *grin* It was fun to sit on the fringes of the group and watch them all. The parents chatting and enjoying the music, the children running about playing on the grounds. No one was concerned about what could go wrong, no one was attached to a tablet. It was just. simple. fun.

And to make it all perfect, off to our left were the remains of some sort of interactive art exhibit...some string and bags of chalk. The children were making up their own game with the string and then launched into a full on chalk fight. A young adult we dubbed Hippie Waldo played with them. It was so much fun to watch!



more summer celebration back here )

ps, I hate the new media features. Anyone want to tell me how to *actually* embed youtube videos? How about managing the new scrapbook? They did not make this "upgrade" very friendly!
Figured it out. Still hate the new media, but I figured it out.

Jeremy and I are headed to New Orleans for a mission trip with our church at 6 a.m. tomorrow morning. I don't know if we'll have internet access while we are there, so this may be a short farewell.

But in parting, I bring you my Christmas Pictures.




Since my horses don't get Christmas presents and their barn is not decorated in any way, we have the tradition of giving them a Christmas Mash. My mom has not always been a fan of this tradition. Imagine a crowded and busy country kitchen in the early hours of Christmas day, and add to that a daughter making bran mashes for her horses because there is no hot water in the barn.

But this year was less hectic since I had to wait and make the mashes the day *after* Christmas. As you'll see, the horses forgave me and enjoyed themselves immensely. And the dogs were pretty happy too.

Christmas Mash for All )

I also enjoyed a quiet winter trail ride )

Who here thinks that I could take a picture of me and Doc, by myself, going over a jump, if I used a remote control? I think it could be interesting.

See, I plan on getting a remote control for the camera for doing night shots and stuff, and it occurred to me that maybe, just maybe I could snap an action shot if no one else is around to do it for me. Crazy? We'll see...

But here are some pictures for your enjoyment until then )
