Archive for Second Saturday
As the mornings turn crisp and the night sky fills with wisps of smoke and moisture, you might find yourself craving the coziness that can only be found in darkness and the subtle titillations of fall’s enchantments. This Weekend, why not begin the immersion with a pinch of this and dose of that?

The blossoms are bursting sweetly and the greenery is rapidly revealing itself; the temperatures are mild and the sky is blue and clear to see. We are all appreciating this fine fresh weather, while hoping that the impending spring storms are fertile enough to moisten the soil and add to our water supply.
But it’s an odd time in history, wouldn’t you say? Do you feel it? And what do you do about it? I write to make sense of it all, for one. I also try to regularly converse with nature in order to relax and feel connected to something much larger than myself. I try to create a balanced lifestyle that includes healthfulness and harmony of thought, feeling and deed. And, I try to have as much fun as possible.
So speaking of fun and meaning, Mother Nature and Man… this is a good weekend to start envisioning, creating and framing the rest of your life. And a little bit of abandon is a great way to loosen tense muscles and minds.
How about supporting education, art and youth by attending the premier performance of SOURCE at the Natomas Charter School Performing and Fine Arts Academy. It visually tells the story of an artist (and his muse), who journeys through life’s ups and downs, discovering that his source of inspiration is always close at hand.
WHEN: Friday, March 9 & Saturday, March 10
One of Sacramento’s greatest inventions – the SECOND SATURDAY ARTWALK – is a free self-guided grid tour of Downtown and Midtown businesses, sidewalks, streets and creations. Whether visiting art galleries, other shops that feature art, or dining establishments serving mouthwatering works of art, it’s all at your fingertips. Along the way, notice the vibrant murals that pop up here and there, or the sculptures and street art ripe for public viewing pleasure.
WHEN: Saturday, March 10
