Do you unplug often enough? Or do you need help?

Do you unplug often enough? Or do you need help?

I needed help so I got the Internet off my phone. Being a caregiver, I have more time to be with people because I know that the Internet is a false sense of connection, but I still like connecting both ways.

What’s the best advice you ever received?

What’s the best advice you ever received?

Moving to Santa Cruz—from my sister. She said move up here after mom passed away, and that’s the best decision I ever made in my life.

What’s your favorite quote? Why?

What’s your favorite quote? Why?

"People have the power to redeem the work of fools."—Patti Smith.
It's motivating and it allows you to realize that as an individual you have the power to make a difference, even when you see others doing things you dislike or disprove of. It puts the emphasis on an individual’s actions and living as you believe.

Should we keep Santa Cruz weird, or keep Santa Cruz safe and clean? Or can we do both?

Should we keep Santa Cruz weird, or keep Santa Cruz safe and clean? Or can we do both?

I think Santa Cruz will always be weird because of the type of people that it draws. But we could definitely focus on staying safer and always being aware of keeping our environment clean, happy and healthy.

Does Santa Cruz need more surveillance cameras?

Does Santa Cruz need more surveillance cameras?

Absolutely not. Why? I think we’ve moved beyond that. I'm all in for a strong police presence. I think the homeless issue downtown has got a little out of control, but it's too much like "Big Brother" looking over your shoulder watching every single move you make.

What gives you hope?

What gives you hope?

The promise for a bright and beautiful future, and my family, which consists of my husband and cat, working, such a beautiful environment, and being in
Santa Cruz and alive. It's hard not to be hopeful here.

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)

Is Santa Cruz turning into Malibu North?

Bargetto Winery

A much-anticipated annual event at Bargetto Winery is the release of their very special La Vita red wine. June 7 was the day to be heralded this year, and I happily squeezed my car into their overloaded car park in eager anticipation of tasting the new La Vita nectar.
