eDitor winterlust


Funny how little things, such as a few letters, can make such a difference. Take the case of “Winterlust,” which Carpinteria Magazine phonetically engineered from wanderlust. Winterlust holds the same searching connotation but refers to the time when Carpinterians seek solace to feed their souls, yet crave the seasonal smorgasbord catered by Mother Nature.


Join the Winterlust journey on the beach with sea glass seekers. Keenly aware of the present moment while studying


the sand, the meditative hunt is as important as the small prize. Serendipitous best describes the hunt our local assemblage artists embark on turning overlooked bits of life into masterpieces, renewing their spirits and giving a second life to the objects.


This issue’s Q&A feature with a renowned swami takes the journey metaphor on its literal and figurative roads. The swami’s physical journey began in the Himalayas and is now on a Carpinteria stopover, where he welcomes fellow travelers on his metaphysical journey.

iS A SiGnAture of cArpinteriA’S Winter. Also from a faraway land, a pioneering Dutch family applies state-of-the-art flower growing techniques to rows upon rows of exotic orchids cycling through mammoth, glass-and-steel greenhouse structures.


Isn’t it odd that the best waves at Rincon break at the height of winter? Almost as if the worse the weather, the better the surf. Catch a wave of nostalgia with old-time surfers who recall what a swell time was had with the Queen of the Coast.


Low sunlight beaming onto a kitchen table is a signature of Carpinteria’s winter. Add bright white walls plus comfy furniture in a lovingly restored bungalow and you come up with the perfect spot to weather the changing seasons. Time to snuggle in, enjoy this issue of Carpinteria Magazine, and start a little Winterlust of your own.


Cheers, Amy Orozco
