On August 16 and 17th, the newly redesigned Burlingame Avenue will play host to the totally revamped free summer festival, "Burlingame on the Avenue." Formerly billed as the Burlingame ArtzFest, Burlingame on the Avenue takes place August 16-17 and will feature hundreds of artisans showcasing original works of art, photography, sculptures, jewelry, clothing, decor and more. Attendees can stroll rows of booths, speak directly to the artists and enjoy an array of delicious foods and drinks. According to Georgette Naylor, President of the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce, the chamber wanted to get back to the roots of what initially inspired the event: a celebration of community. "The Burlingame Avenue Streetscape Project has been a huge accomplishment for us and for our community," said Naylor. "With the re-branding of this event, we know this will solidify Burlingame Avenue's place as THE premiere shopping destination on the Peninsula." The event will feature many of the favorite components from years past, including an area featuring interactive children's activities, a Home, Garden and Green section, and an eclectic mix of entertainment and live music from bands, including Group Therapy. On Saturday from 11am-2pm, local community performers, including winners of the Burlingame Idol competition, will showcase their talents. Burlingame on the Avenue hosted by the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce and is free to the public.

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.
