It's said there are three basic food groups for Southerners: sugar, lard and bourbon. Of course, this leaves out the most important food group, the one no self-respecting Southerner would turn down: grits. People From Away (anywhere north, east or west of the South) don't always understand the attraction to the bland, mushy, white mound of cereal. They often liken grits to wet plaster or wallpaper paste.

Attempts to bring a creative edge to the annual world dance finale of the Dance Kaleidoscope series are probably doomed. However, celebratory spectacle did occasionally yield to more purposeful expression at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre on Saturday--never more memorably than when Mark Mendonca repeated the intense, sexy, technically dazzling untitled tap solo that had opened the series a week earlier.

It may seem strange that a musician would tap into a vein of calm to bring power to his work. But it makes perfect sense to Bill Neal. He has to block out the ruckus of everyday life to capture the mood for playing his traditional Native American flutes. "We're becoming numb to all of the manufactured sounds that invade our space on a daily basis," said Neal, who counts Cherokees among his ancestors and performs under the name Elk Whistle.

Here is a chance to camp under the oaks deep in Point Mugu State Park, miles from noisy traffic and glaring city lights. There is just one small catch: You have to be willing to get your hands dirty, and maybe a little blistered. It's Santa Monica Mountains Trail Days from April 26 to 28, part of a statewide effort to spruce up California's parkland. State park officials and a number of local groups are coordinating the two-day workout in Point Mugu State Park.
