Please join us for our upcoming Driftwood Consort show! "Galanterie" (Consert 1) May 19th, 3:00pm. St. John's Episcopal Church (Aptos) "Galanterie" features a program of elegant, late 18th century selections that span the aesthetic arc from baroque luminary Johann Sebastian Bach to that great pioneer of the classical era, Joseph Haydn. As Bach senior's intricate ("baroque") style of writing began to fall out of favor, younger composers responded with a new trend towards fluid melodies and ornamentation, paving the path the the translucent classical style. We will ride the tide of that time. Starting with Bach and ending with Haydn, this program highlights "galant" works by Bach's two younger sons, a trio by Graf, and famous London gambist Abel. Performing are Lars Johannesson and Alissa Roedig (18th century wooden flutes), Amy Brodo (cello and viola da gamba), and Jonathan Rhodes Lee (harpsichord). Driftwood Consort is an ensemble with a passion for performing music from the Renaissance through Romantic period on period instruments. Under the artistic direction of Lars Johannesson and Alissa Roedig, the ensemble brings together musicians from the greater Bay Area who play with groups ranging from Monterey to Berkeley and beyond.

Location : St. John's Episcopal Church, 125 Canterbury Dr, Aptos

The Meaning of ‘LIFE’

With a new documentary film about his work, and huge exhibits on both coasts, acclaimed Santa Cruz nature photographer Frans Lanting is having a landmark year. But his crusade for conservation doesn’t leave much time for looking back

 

Seasons of Opportunity

Everything in our world has a specific time (a season) in which to accomplish a specific work—a “season” that begins (opportunity) and ends (time’s up). I can feel the season is changing. The leaves turning colors, the air cooler, sunbeams casting shadows in different places. It feels like a seasonal change has begun in the northern hemisphere. Christmas is in four months, and 2015 is swiftly speeding by. Soon it will be autumn and time for the many Festivals of Light. Each season offers new opportunities. Then the season ends and new seasons take its place. Humanity, too, is given “seasons” of opportunity. We are in one of those opportunities now, to bring something new (Uranus) into our world, especially in the United States. Times of opportunity can be seen in the astrology chart. In the U.S. chart, Uranus (change) joins Chiron (wound/healing). This symbolizes a need to heal the wounds of humanity. Uranus offers new archetypes, new ways of doing things. The Uranus/Chiron (Aries/Pisces) message is, “The people of the U.S. are suffering. New actions are needed to bring healing and well-being to humanity. So the U.S. can fulfill its spiritual task of standing within the light and leading humanity within and toward the light.” Thursday, Aquarius Moon, Mercury enters Libra. The message, “To bring forth the new order in the world, begin with acts of Goodwill.” Goodwill produces right relations with everyone and everything. The result is a world of progressive well-being and peacefulness (which is neither passive nor the opposite of war). Saturday is the full moon, the solar light of Virgo streaming into the Earth. Our waiting now begins, for the birth of new light at winter solstice. The mother (hiding the light of the soul, the holy child), identifying the feminine principle, says, “I am the mother and the child. I, God (Father), I Matter (Mother), We are One.”

    Comanche Cellars

    Michael Simons, owner and winemaker of Comanche Cellars, once had a trusted steed called Comanche, which was part of his paper route and his rodeo circuit, from the tender age of 10. In memory of this beautiful horse, he named his winery Comanche, and Comanche’s shoes grace the label of each handcrafted bottle.
