Word on the Street

blog_beauty2Don’t you just love when you are walking down Pacific Avenue and see
some smartly dressed person, who just “works” their amazing outfit? Okay, so this may not always be a daily occurrence in Santa Cruz, but
it can be! How, you ask? Well, let me tell you about the amazing blogs
you can visit for your endless inspiration and viewing pleasure of people
rockin’ their look on the street. They may not resemble folks on our particular streets, as
these are images culled from fashionable trendsetters worldwide.

blog_beauty1Hopefully, you
 are already reading The Sartorialist ( aren’t you? If not, log on immediately to see gorgeous shots of people on the street, who just
happen to dress as though they are taking a break from an editorial
photo shoot. The Sartorialist’s fashionable girlfriend shoots similarly beautiful people on the
street, and you can see her glamorous images at Garance Dore
( Another place for inspiration is Jak and Jil
(, which is again, a fabulous dose of style and
inspiration. So go soak in the style, find your muse, then get out there and provide some real life outfit inspiration for 
the style-philes of Santa Cruz.

A Ritual & Initiation

The Pope has come and gone, but his loving presence ignited new hope and goodness in many. While he was in NYC, China’s ruler arrived in Washington D.C. East (China) and West (Rome), meeting in the middle, under Libra, balancing sign of Right Relations. The Pope arrived at Fall Equinox. Things initiated at Fall Equinox are birthed at Winter Solstice. The Pope’s presence was a ritual, an initiation rite—like the Dalai Lama’s visits—offering prayers, teachings and blessings. Rituals anchor God’s plan into the world, initiating us to new realities, new rules. The Pope’s presence brings forth the Soul of the United States, its light piercing the veils of materialism. The Pope’s visit changed things. New questions arise, new reasons for living. A new wave of emerging life fills the air. Like a cocoon shifting, wings becoming visible. The winds are different now. Calling us to higher vision, moral values, virtues that reaffirm and offer hope for humanity. A changing of the guard has occurred. Appropriately, this is the week of the Jewish Festival of Sukkoth (’til Oct. 4), when we build temporary homes (little huts in nature), entering into a harvest of prayer and thanksgiving, understanding our fragile and impermanent existences. We are summoned to reflect upon our lives, our humanity, our nature, our spirit and each other. Offering gratitude, becoming a magnet for others. We observe. We see the needs. We love more.
