Will's most recent book of poems, Unsettled accounts, won the 2009 Hollis Summers Poetry Prize and was published in February of 2010 by Ohio University/Swallow Press. On its basis, he was chosen as a Walter E. Dakin Fellow in Poetry for the 2010 Sewanee Writer's Conference and as 2010 Ohio Poet of the year (selected by the State Library of Ohio). He has previously won an Individual Endowment for the Humanities, most of which have involved translation of various Italian poets. Most recently, this involved translating the sonnets of Sara Coppia Sullam during the NEH Summer Institute of "Venice, The Jews and Italian Culture" in 2006. Subsequent presentations and articles have focused upon the translation of Sullam's sonnets. Other N.E.H experiences included a summer Institute on Literary Translation at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1988. His previous volume of poems, Conversing with the Light, was chosen by Henry Taylor for the 1987 Anhinga Prize and published by Anhinga press of Tallahassee. He has also translated Umberto Saba's first volume of poems, Trieste and a Lady, and that volume is currently in circulation with publishers. His current poetry manuscript, tentatively, titled Scraps and Damaged Lots, is nearly finished. He serves as Professor of English and Dean of Arts & Sciences at Rhodes State College in Ohio.

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.

    What’s your take on Santa Cruz locals?

    Santa Cruz locals are really friendly once you know them. I think a lot of them have a hard time leaving, and I would too. Ryan Carle, Santa Cruz, Biologist

     

    Soquel Vineyards

    If Soquel Vineyards partners Peter and Paul Bargetto and Jon Morgan were walking down the street wearing their winning wine competition medals, you’d hear them coming from a mile away. This year was particularly rewarding for the Bargettos and Morgan—they won two Double Gold Medals and five Gold Medals at January’s San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
