Revel in the Glory

blog trophy2San Francisco Giants World Championship Trophy Tour comes to Soquel High School

San Francisco Giants fans will have the opportunity this Tuesday, March 5 to bask in the glory of the 2010 and 2012 world championship trophies.

The trophies will be on display at Soquel High School from 6-8 p.m., where fans will be able to snap their own pictures or get a professional photo taken with the trophy starting at $20.

The tour is put on by the by the Giants to share the feeling of victory with the public and Junior Giants Leagues across Northern and Central California.

“The pride about our leagues matches the pride I felt when I first saw the trophies,” says Elizabeth Schilling, commissioner for the Live Oak Junior Giants League.

The Junior Giants Program, created by the Giants Community Fund, is a free, non-competitive baseball league for kids 5-18 years of age that not only teaches the fundamentals of the sport, but also attempts to instill character into the young players.

The Live Oak Junior Giants started three years ago and had had 210 players in 2012. The Santa Cruz County Sheriff Activity League, the Live Oak School District, and Community Bridges/Live Oak Family Resource Center support the Junior Giants of Live Oak.

The event is free, but donations to the Live Oak Junior Giants Program will be welcomed. The league is also in need of coaches for their upcoming season, which starts July 6.

Soquel High, 401 Old San Jose Road, Soquel. For more information or to volunteer, contact Kate Hinnenkamp by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or by phone 476-7284 x105.

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.
