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.

This ain’t no Burning Man—the MAH’s GLOW festival flames on


Mercury Direct in Libra, Columbus Day, Libra New Moon

Mercury completes its retrograde Friday, poised stationary direct Friday evening at zero degrees Libra. Mercury begins its journey through Libra once again, completing its retrograde shadow Oct. 12. Things should be a bit less complicated by then. Daily life works better, plans move forward, large purchases can be made, and communication eases. Everything on hold during the retrograde is slowly released. Since we eliminated all thoughts and ideas no longer needed (the purpose of Mercury’s retrograde) during the retrograde, we can now gather new information—until the next retrograde occurs on Jan. 5, 2016 (1.3 degrees Aquarius), retrograding back to 15 degrees Capricorn on Jan. 25. It’s good to know beforehand when Mercury will retrograde next—Jan. 5, the day before Epiphany. On Monday is Columbus Day, when the sailor from Genoa arrived in the new lands (Americas), Oct. 12, 1492. This discovery by Columbus was the first encounter of Europeans with Native Americans. Other names for this day are “Discovery Day, Day of the Americas, Cultural Diversity Day, Indigenous People’s Day, and Dia de la Raza.” Italian communities especially celebrate this day. Oct. 12 is also Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Monday is also the (19 degrees) Libra new moon festival. Libra’s keynote while building the personality is, “Let choice be made.” Libra is the sign of making life choices. Often under great tension of opposing forces seeking harmony and balance. There is a battle between our lower (personality) and higher selves (soul). We are tested and called to cultivate right judgment and love. When we align with the will-to-good, right choice, then right judgment and love/wisdom come forth. Our tasks in Libra.
