The Human Race- Easing the burden for area non-profits, schools and community groups. The Volunteer Center will host the 2014 Human Race Kick-Off Breakfast Feb. 4th from 7:30AM-9:00AM at the Sea Cliff Inn in Aptos. All area non-profits, schools and churches are invited to register for the event and attend the breakfast to access the tools they need to launch a successful fundraising campaign for this year's Race. The Human Race is a family friendly walkathon and fun run along beautiful West Cliff Drive that attracts the community at large to raise money for the organization of their choosing. Each year over 150 non-profits, schools and churches sep out to collectively ask for community support. In 2013 more than 2,000 race day participants and over 10,000 donors raised nearly $250,000 for area organizations. The Volunteer Center provides all event support including race day organizing, publicity and promotion, agency trainings and a free website where agencies can receive donations on-line, communicate with their participants, and visually track financial progress. Agencies pay a nominal fee of $25.00 to register and receive 75-85% of all profits raised. Agencies are asked to RSVP for the Kick-off Breakfast by January 31st.

The Meaning of ‘LIFE’

With a new documentary film about his work, and huge exhibits on both coasts, acclaimed Santa Cruz nature photographer Frans Lanting is having a landmark year. But his crusade for conservation doesn’t leave much time for looking back

 

Seasons of Opportunity

Everything in our world has a specific time (a season) in which to accomplish a specific work—a “season” that begins (opportunity) and ends (time’s up). I can feel the season is changing. The leaves turning colors, the air cooler, sunbeams casting shadows in different places. It feels like a seasonal change has begun in the northern hemisphere. Christmas is in four months, and 2015 is swiftly speeding by. Soon it will be autumn and time for the many Festivals of Light. Each season offers new opportunities. Then the season ends and new seasons take its place. Humanity, too, is given “seasons” of opportunity. We are in one of those opportunities now, to bring something new (Uranus) into our world, especially in the United States. Times of opportunity can be seen in the astrology chart. In the U.S. chart, Uranus (change) joins Chiron (wound/healing). This symbolizes a need to heal the wounds of humanity. Uranus offers new archetypes, new ways of doing things. The Uranus/Chiron (Aries/Pisces) message is, “The people of the U.S. are suffering. New actions are needed to bring healing and well-being to humanity. So the U.S. can fulfill its spiritual task of standing within the light and leading humanity within and toward the light.” Thursday, Aquarius Moon, Mercury enters Libra. The message, “To bring forth the new order in the world, begin with acts of Goodwill.” Goodwill produces right relations with everyone and everything. The result is a world of progressive well-being and peacefulness (which is neither passive nor the opposite of war). Saturday is the full moon, the solar light of Virgo streaming into the Earth. Our waiting now begins, for the birth of new light at winter solstice. The mother (hiding the light of the soul, the holy child), identifying the feminine principle, says, “I am the mother and the child. I, God (Father), I Matter (Mother), We are One.”

    Comanche Cellars

    Michael Simons, owner and winemaker of Comanche Cellars, once had a trusted steed called Comanche, which was part of his paper route and his rodeo circuit, from the tender age of 10. In memory of this beautiful horse, he named his winery Comanche, and Comanche’s shoes grace the label of each handcrafted bottle.
