Something occurred to me: My Polish mother is coming for a visit in October. I wonder if California is ready for this glorious creature. Here’s what I say: Pierogi for all!  Not that I’m short of any ideas to entertain, but should something come across your mind, drop me a line. It will be a Polish-themed October all around.

The big buzz of the week comes from Shakespeare Santa Cruz. As many of you already have read, the promiment theater organization, which has thrived here locally for more than 30 years, is  expected to close its doors for good after its holiday show in December.  The news came nearly five years after SSC garnered $419,000 in emergency donations, a combination of support from the public and other donors that fueled the 2009 season. But the one-time emergency bandage and SSC’s valiant efforts with its private support, the organizations has still had to maintain a dependence on campus funds.

Fall is quickly approaching. Labor Day is just over a week away. A new school season is upon us. Oh ... where did 2013 go? A good thing to ponder—the quickening of time and all that—but for now, let’s stay present and be in the moment, shall we?

This week’s news over top city officials recommending a step back on the whole desalination plan certainly turned heads. Thoughts? Read our blog on the matter online at and let us know what you think.

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
