What’s one socially acceptable behavior that you wish didn’t exist?

What’s one socially acceptable behavior that you wish didn’t exist?

Texting. If you’re having a meal with somebody and your trying to talk to them and they're using their phone, I think it's kind of rude. People think it's acceptable, but it can be kind of annoying.

What’s the best thing about the Warriors being in Santa Cruz thus far?

What’s the best thing about the Warriors being in Santa Cruz thus far?

The best thing is the vibe. You know what I mean? It gives a good vibe to Santa Cruz, and there are a lot of people here that like basketball and they like sports. It gives the families out here something to do, and it's something to do downtown.

Name our local government’s biggest flaw and its strongest asset.

Name our local government’s biggest flaw and its strongest asset.

The biggest flaw is that they want to spend money on a desalination plant. And the biggest asset is that there are people there that we can talk to that we can work with.

Would you support tougher gun regulations?

Would you support tougher gun regulations?

I would support tougher gun regulation as far as military style weapons that you can’t use for hunting. They're basically used to kill. Hand guns and shotguns and other types of weapons like that, I believe there needs to be regulation on them, but I think the military style weapons should be taken out of the public's hands.

Name two ideas that would make Santa Cruz County even better in 2013.

Name two ideas that would make Santa Cruz County even better in 2013.

Broaden our horizons in terms of welcoming new businesses. Not necessarily just local businesses, but corporations and other bigger stores if they fit. Also, I'd say be a bit more aggressive on handling the homeless problem downtown.

The Mayan calendar ends on Dec. 21. What’s going to happen?

The Mayan calendar ends on Dec. 21. What’s going to happen?

I believe there will be a change in human consciousness. I don’t think there will be any great disaster or anything like that. I think it will be a slight shift in people's perception of reality.

What is the most overlooked or under-reported issue of 2012?

What is the most overlooked or under-reported issue of 2012?


Nuclear power. I lived in Japan for over 20 years and I'm really shocked at how few people remember that the Fukushima Nuclear Plant accident just happened a year and a half ago. It's still leaking and it's really sad how the news is being covered up, and I think it's a really important issue. I don’t know how President Obama is responding to it these days, but I was surprised how he believed that the United States needed more nuclear power plants.

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
