10 The GrapevineAugust 30 - September 13, 2012For the week of August 30th© Copyright 2012 Rob BrezsnyRob Brezsny'sARIES (March 21-April 19): I'mafraid your vibes are slightly outof tune. Can you do somethingabout that, please? Meanwhile,your invisible friend could reallyuse a Tarot reading, and yourhouseplants would benefit from adose of Mozart. Plus -- and I hopeI'm not being too forward here-- your charmingly cluttered spotsare spiraling into chaotic sprawl,and your slight tendency tooverreact is threatening to devolveinto a major proclivity. As for thatrather shabby emotional baggageof yours: Would you considerhauling it to the dump? Inconclusion, my dear Ram, you'redue for a few adjustments.TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Ishappiness mostly just an absenceof pain? If so, I bet you've beenpretty content lately. But what ifa more enchanting and excitingkind of bliss were available?Would you have the courage to goafter it? Could you summon thechutzpah and the zeal and thevisionary confidence to head outin the direction of a new frontierof joy? I completely understandif you feel shy about asking formore. You might worry that todo so would be greedy, or putyou at risk of losing what youhave already scored. But I feelit's my duty to cheer you on. Thepotential rewards looming justover the hump are magnificent.GEMINI (May 21-June 20):I've got some medicine for you totry, Gemini. It's advice from thewriter Thomas Merton. "To allowoneself to be carried away by amultitude of conflicting concerns,"he wrote, "to surrender to toomany demands, to commit oneselfto too many projects, to want tohelp everyone in everything, isto succumb to the violence of ourtimes." It's always a good idea toheed that warning, of course. Butit's especially crucial for you rightnow. The best healing work youcan do is to shield your attentionfrom the din of the outside worldand tune in reverently to theglimmers of the inside world.CANCER (June 21-July 22): Idreamed you were a magnanimoustaskmaster nudging the peopleyou care about to treat themselveswith more conscientioustenderness. You were pesteringthem to raise their expectationsand hew to higher standardsof excellence. Your persistencewas admirable! You coaxed themto waste less time and makelong-range educational plansand express themselves withmore confidence and precision.You encouraged them to givethemselves a gift now and thenand take regular walks by bodiesof water. They were suspicious ofyour efforts to make them feelgood, at least in the early going.But eventually they gave in and letyou help them.LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In thespirit of Sesame Street, I'm happyto announce that this week isbrought to you by the letter T,the number 2, and the color blue.Here are some of the "T" wordsyou should put extra emphasison: togetherness, trade-offs, tact,timeliness, tapestry, testability,thoroughness, teamwork, andThemis (goddess of order andjustice). To bolster your masteryof the number 2, meditateon interdependence, balance,and collaboration. As for blue,remember that its presence tendsto bring stability and depth.VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):In the creation myths of EasterIsland's native inhabitants, thegod who made humanity wasnamed Makemake. He was alsotheir fertility deity. Today thename Makemake also belongs to adwarf planet that was discoveredbeyond the orbit of Neptune in2005. It's currently travelingthrough the sign of Virgo. I regardit as being the heavenly body thatbest symbolizes your own destinyin the coming months. In thespirit of the original Makemake,you will have the potential to bea powerful maker. In a sense youcould even be the architect andfounder of your own new world.Here's a suggestion: Look up theword "creator" in a thesaurus,write the words you find there onthe back of your business card,and keep the card in a special placeuntil May 2013.LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Whennovelist James Joyce began tosuspect that his adult daughterLucia was mentally ill, he soughtadvice from psychologist CarlJung. After a few sessions withher, Jung told her father thatshe was schizophrenic. How didhe know? A telltale sign washer obsessive tendency to makepuns, many of which were quiteclever. Joyce reported that he, too,enjoyed the art of punning. "Youare a deep-sea diver," Jung replied."She is drowning." I'm going toapply a comparable distinction toyou, Libra. These days you maysometimes worry that you're inover your head in the bottomlessabyss. But I'm here to tell youthat in all the important ways,you're like a deep-sea diver. (TheJoyce-Jung story comes fromEdward Hoagland's *Learning toEat Soup.*)SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):No false advertising this week,Scorpio. Don't pretend to be apurebred if you're actually a mutt,and don't act like you know it allwhen you really don't. For thatmatter, you shouldn't portrayyourself as an unambitiousamateur if you're actually anaggressive pro, and you shouldavoid giving the impression thatyou want very little when in factyou're a burning churning throbof longing. I realize it may betempting to believe that a bitof creative deceit would serve aholy cause, but it won't. As muchas you possibly can, make outerappearances reflect inner truths.SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.21): In Christian lore, the serpentis the bad guy that's the causeof all humanity's problems. Hecoaxes Adam and Eve to disobeyGod, which gets them expelledfrom Paradise. But in Hindu andBuddhist mythology, there aresnake gods that sometimes dogood deeds and perform epicservices. They're called Nagas. Inone Hindu myth, a Naga princecarries the world on his head. Andin a Buddhist tale, the Naga kinguses his seven heads to give theBuddha shelter from a storm justafter the great one has achievedenlightenment. In regards to yourimmediate future, Sagittarius, Iforesee you having a relationshipto the serpent power that's morelike the Hindu and Buddhistversion than the Christian. Expectvitality, fertility, and healing.CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):In Lewis Carroll's book Throughthe Looking Glass, the Red Queentells Alice that she is an expert atbelieving in impossible things. Shebrags that there was one morningwhen she managed to embrace siximprobable ideas before she evenate breakfast. I encourage you toexperiment with this approach,Capricorn. Have fun entertainingall sorts of crazy notions andunruly fantasies. Please note thatI am not urging you to actually putthose beliefs into action. The pointis to give your imagination a goodwork-out.AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):I'm not necessarily advising you tobecome best friends with the darkside of your psyche. I'm merelyrequesting that the two of youcultivate a more open connection.The fact of the matter is that ifyou can keep a dialogue going withthis shadowy character, it's farless likely to trip you up or kickyour ass at inopportune moments.In time you might even come tothink of its chaos as being moreinvigorating than disorienting.You may regard it as a worthyadversary and even an interestingteacher.PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):You need more magic in your life,Pisces. You're suffering from a lackof sublimely irrational adventuresand eccentrically miraculousepiphanies and inexplicablydelightful interventions. At thesame time, I think it's importantthat the magic you attract intoyour life is not pure fluff. It needssome grit. It's got to have a kickthat keeps you honest. That's whyI suggest that you consider gettingthe process started by bakingsome unicorn poop cookies.They're sparkly, enchanting,rainbow-colored sweets, butwith an edge. Ingredientsinclude sparkle gel, disco dust,star sprinkles -- and a distinctlyroguish attitude. Recipe is Stella Rose B & B611 Main St. • Wolfville's newest 4-1/2 star B&B697-2368 •

11 The GrapevineAugust 30 - September 13, 2012Mike UncorkedSigh, the summer’s almostover. Well, in terms of calendardays we still have a bit togo, but kids and mature studentswill soon be back at the grind,the evenings have started to cooloff, stores are shifting from theirsummer hours and the number oftourists has depleted. I can’t complainbecause I had a great summerwith lots of sun and manythings to do. I read lots of books,saw some wonderful plays, hungout with many friends and familymembers, and I got to spenda lot of time with my partnerwhich was really the highlight ofthe season. I finished my 20 th playand started a new season of GhostWalks and I had a very successfulYard Sale and a great summer atwork. I love the autumn however,and I can’t wait for the leaves tochange, the burst of diversity inWolfville from the arrival of thestudents and all the great eventsthat happen in the early fall inthis area, like Deep Roots and thecrop of new Fundy Film movies.I highly recommend taking inthe first selection of the FundyFilm Society’s incredible Fall lineup, Moonrise Kingdom. ShowingSunday September 9th at 4pmand 7pm, this light-heartedromantic comedy is set on afictitious New England island inthe summer of 1965 and tells thestory of two youngstar-crossed loverswho flee their town,which causes a localsearch party to fanout and find them.Moonrise Kingdomis directed by WesAnderson who haswritten and directedsome of my favoritefilms includingRushmore, The RoyalTenenbaums, BottleFall Out of Summer!Rocket, and the stop-motionanimation masterpiece FantasticMr. Fox and it stars Bill Murray,Bruce Willis, Edward Nortonand Academy Award WinningActresses Tilda Swinton andFrances McDormand. You will notbe disappointed with this film,which is filled with wonderfulcharacters and great visuals,including some shots inspired byAlex Colville paintings!And then on WednesdaySeptember 12th at 7pm, headto the Al Whittle theatre for theDocumentary Marley. I love allkinds of music, everything fromthe Four Tops to 80’s hair bands,and I also love movies so thecombination of great music andfilmmaking, will make Marley amust-see. Bob Marley’s appeal,impact on music and role asa social and political prophetis undeniable and Marley isthe life story of the musician,revolutionary, legend and theman, from his early days tointernational superstardom.This fascinating documentarycombines rare footage, neverbefore-seenperformances,previously unreleased music andrevelatory interviews to createa terrific portrait.

13 The GrapevineAugust 30 - September 13, 2012Staghorn Sumac-AdeFrom Jenny Osburn of Union Street Cafe • www.localfoodlover@blogspot.comIdidn't need any more reasons to love the staghorn sumac tree. Ilove that in spring its limbs are coated with velvety fur, like a freshlyantlered deer. Long fern-like leaves emerge, then gorgeous red conesthat keep their colour and beauty as the leaves turn to autumn redand orange. In early winter when the leaves have fallen it is perfectlyelegant, bare stretching branches topped with those same red bractsproviding a perky splash of colour against a snowy backdrop.So when I saw a glass of what looked like pink lemonade on myfriend Angie's facebook page with the label "Sumac-Ade" I was greatlyintrigued. Supposedly she had made it from the cones of the sumactree! It was late at night but I found my sumacs by flashlight andsnapped off a few flower clusters. I made a little batch of the mostdelicious drink you could imagine just by soaking the berries in coldwater and adding a little sugar. It's sour like lemonade but with adistinctive taste.StaghornSumac-Ade• 6-8 Sumac Cones• Cold water to cover• Sugar or Maple Syrup to tasteShake off any insects on thecones and place them in a largepot. Crush and break the conesapart and cover with cold water.Let sit for an hour, then strain.Add a little sweetener and serveover ice.183 Commercial St, Berwickunionstreetcafe.ca538-7787"handmade food and fun"ABS-O-LUTE HEALTH CLUBStudent Fall SpecialPurchase a 3 MonthStudent Membership at$129.36 +tx (Sept 1 - Oct 15/12)Receive an EXTRA MONTH at NO CHARGEThat’s 4 months for the price of 3!A current Student ID Must be presented8934 Commercial St., New Minas365-3210 • www.absolutehealthclub.comLet’s Eat!

14 The GrapevineAugust 30 - September 13, 2012The Grapevine Asks:Dear Mayor and Councillors,As the elections approach (Saturday, October 20), I'm wondering if you'd be able to share 2-5 sentences on what it takes to be on council. Therecould be a few people in the community wondering if they should put their name in the hat but unsure of what it really entails. With yourexperience, I'm sure you'd be able to offer some words of wisdom on the topic.“Acommitmentto serve on ourTown Councilrequires asacrifice ofprivate timeof about 25hours a weekfor reading,meetings, educational programs (learning).Being prepared to participate as part of ateam to govern a busy municipality whichalready knows “what it wants to be whenit grows up”. Team work and trust areessential.”Wolfville Mayor, Robert Stead"Councillorsneed a mix ofskills to makean effectivecontribution toTown Council.They shouldhave a goodfeeling for thestrengths ofthe community, and the people who live here.They will need to understand how budgetswork, how policy is developed and what themost effective means are of communicatingwith citizens. The more of this experience theybring into office, the faster they can makea start at influencing the decisions made atTown Council. Councillors are not advisorsto Town staff, but are the leaders accountableto the public. Therefore Councillors shouldbe comfortable setting direction for theorganization, and being accountable for theresults. Not every Councillor starting out hasall these skills but an ability to learn quicklyon the job is important.The most effective Councils are those that canconstructively debate and make decisions.The ability of individual Councillors to workas a team and utilize each other’s strengths isimportant.It takes patience, commitment and teamworkto be on Town Council."Councillor Keith IrvingTo become a candidate, nominations can be filed by appointment with the returning officer (Denise Bonnell in the fivebusiness days prior to nomination day (September 11 th , 2012).Stardrop by Mark Oakley: www.iboxpublishing.comStardrop is brought to you by The Box of Delights - A Delightful Little Bookshop on Main St Wolfville542-9511

15 The GrapevineAugust 30 - September 13, 2012Who's Who: Angel and Sherry Kozlowski: High Kicking Sistersam always looking for aI challenge when I write theseGrapevine articles. I take suggestionsfor people and topicsand I try to follow through nomatter what the subject might be.This Who’s Who came to me bysuggestion and my interest wassnatched from the beginning. Ibelieve this is my second doubleduty Who’s Who profile... it’salways nice to challenge yourself.Let me introduce you to Angeland Sherry Kozlowski, yes theoutfits.... I know, I know, I’mgetting to them... just read on!Angel and Sherry grew up inWhite Rock. Sherry graduatedfrom Acadia in 1999 with a BSc.and received a diploma in DentalHygiene from Dalhousie in 2003.She now works for Alliance Dentalin Coldbrook and when Angel isnot spending time with her kidsshe is also employed in the DentalProfession.And now the outfits! Sherryand Angel have been trainingin Taekwondo with Master JoWagner for 20 years. Angelreceived her black belt in 1995and is currently a 3 rd degreeblack belt.
