'First Dawn' approaches

With everyone focused on what they're doing the last night of the year, have you given any thought on how you'll spend the first day?

Over at the Manoa Market Place Postal Courtyard, people will gather for "First Dawn," a celebration of humanity and the cosmos with music, dance, drumming, testimony, poetry and resolution.

The event starts at 9 tonight and continues to 4 a.m., with organic food to keep all awake till dawn.

"First Dawn" was conceived for the new millennium and will be followed by witnessing the new year sunrise by wading in the water at Kailua Beach Park.

For more information, call David at 778-1355.



On the fringe of fashion

A fringed curtain gives those behind the door a sense of privacy.

Now windows and doorways can have an air of opulence, exotica and fun. Frinz window panels are curtains made entirely of 86-inch-long fringe. Think 1920s flapper garb, or a young Tina Turner's swishing hips in that fringed minidress as she belts out "Proud Mary." Each package contains one 42-inch-wide panel. Made by Umbra, the curtains come in black or natural colors and sell for $57 each.

If privacy's a concern, these won't solve that issue. They do offer a hint of a view as light and air filter through them. These are great for a teen's doorway if they don't mind occasionally getting belt buckles or rings caught in some of the strands.

Available at DeZign Home stores. Call them at 421-3170.
