What would get you to do more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

What would get you to do  more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

Just lower prices I think. More advertising. I do try to shop locally as much as possible but sometimes the price is too high. It's understandable as to why they are what they are, but lower prices would help a lot.

Blocking access to UCSC

Blocking access to UCSC

Do you think blocking access to the UCSC campus is an effective form of protest? Why?


Yes, it's an effective form of protest because it gets attention, and that’s what they want.

Does evil exist?

Does evil exist?  Unfortunately, I believe it does. I think when the Universe was created there was no evil. Human beings are greedy, and I think that that’s where evil comes from. I think that religions try to prevent evil, people but they also reinforce it by saying dont be evil or you'll go to hell. I believe that we have to teach people not to be evil, which is sad.

What is your idea of a romantic date in Santa Cruz?

What is your idea of a romantic date in Santa Cruz? A bike ride along West Cliff with a stop at Kelly’s Bakery to grab some food. Then continue on to Wilder Ranch to enjoy a sunset picnic.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
