  • Our Lady of the Woods will hold a Divination Night at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Art Room of the Unitarian Church. They will gather to do divination for the upcoming year.
    Amber K. and Azrael Arynn K., authors of “Heart of Tarot,” will be among those attending.
    “Heart of Tarot” explores the Gestalt method of reading the Tarot.
    From the introduction:
    “Your mind has an infinite capacity to make connections and to find meanings in disconnected facts or abstract symbols. Gestalt Tarot strips the cards of their traditional meaning, then asks you to find your own meanings in the cards.”
    In addition to this method of reading the Tarot, it will be possible to explore other methods of divination, including pendulum, palmistry and more.
    Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite divination tools or method and come prepared to share or learn a new technique or two. They can do divination for themselves or offer to do readings for others.
    Tea will be provided. Bring snacks to share.
    Any level of proficiency is fine.

  • When you take a second to make a difference, people tend to take notice.
    Los Alamos High School Hilltopper Daniel Ahrens did just that — and many people will benefit because of his compassion.
    The LAHS junior is the Speech and Debate team captain and the captain of the Lincoln Douglas debate team, but that isn’t what he was rewarded for.
    “Daniel is an outstanding student who is articulate, well-mannered and blessed with an excellent sense of humor,” said LAHS Speech and Debate coach Margo Batha.
    Ahrens is the second of four boys, the last two of which are twins, so he learned at an early age to be calm and collected.
    He is a five-year member of the YES Corps program and as such, had honed his first aid skills with years of first aid classes and lots of trail work.
    At the La Loma Invitational, the Hilltalkers 50th annual speech and debate tournament, this particular skill set came into use.
    The event hosted 235 students from all over the state, along with more than 100 adult judges and volunteers.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — Jessica Chastain easily outmuscled Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mark Wahlberg over the weekend, topping the box office with both her supernatural horror film “Mama” and the Oscar-nominated Osama bin Laden hunt thriller “Zero Dark Thirty.”
    “Mama” opened well above expectations with a box-office topping $28.1 million for Universal Pictures, according to studio estimates Sunday. Chastain also held the second spot with “Zero Dark Thirty,” for which she’s nominated by the Academy Awards for best actress. In its second week of wide release, “Zero Dark Thirty” took in $17.6 million.
    The films’ strong performances made an unlikely box-office queen out of a chameleon-like actress that even fans of “Mama” might have trouble picking out of a lineup. Chastain, whose credits range from Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” to “The Help” (for which she was also Oscar nominated), even accomplished the rare feat by besting a couple more traditional box-office stalwarts.
    Schwarzenegger’s post-governorship comeback got off to a terrible start. His action flick “The Last Stand” opened with just $6.3 million for Lionsgate, one of the worst debuts for the brawny 65-year-old star. The film came in 10th.

  • Noted French experimental writer Michel Butor, having taught in many countries around the world, was teaching at the University of Albuquerque in 1973-74 when he began a long series of communications and collaborations with French poet and Post-war School of Paris painter, Camille Bryen.
    The two men exchanged letters, drawings, paintings and collages over the course of their correspondence, which were later published in a book, “Bryen: En Temps Conjugués.” Blandine Chavanne, director of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes (Museum of Fine Arts in Nantes) is curating an exhibition of their work during this period and will speak about the men and their project in a lecture Feb. 4 at the Santa Fe Art Institute.
    Admisson is $10 for general admission, $5 for students and seniors.
    Author and curator Chavanne was named director of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes (Museum of Fine Arts in Nantes) in 2006.
    After earning her Diplôme d’études appliquées in fine arts in 1978, Chavanne received a Diplôme from l’Ecole du Louvre in 1982 and became the curator of the City of Poitiers Museums until 1991.
