What festivals are you most looking foward to this summer?

What festivals are you most  looking foward to this summer?
I think Burning Man is really the best festival worth going to. I’ve been eight times. Festivals have become so expensive so if you’re going to spend $500 on a festival, it might as well be Burning Man.

Sarah Palin? What are your thoughts on her now that  another election cycle begins?

It's not worth giving much thought to. She's nuts. That pretty much sums it up.

What’s so weird about Santa Cruz?

What’s so weird about  Santa Cruz?


I made up my own bumper sticker, it says "Santa Cruz wasn't weird until you got here." I think what makes Santa Cruz weird is UCSC.

Is it easy to get around Santa Cruz by car? What would make it better?

Is it easy to get around Santa Cruz by car? What would make it better?

No, it's not easy to get around Santa Cruz by car and one of the major issues living on the Westside is Mission Street. People always want to make left-hand turns and there's no turn lanes for a lot of it. Also, I'd have to say the way traffic is fed onto Highway 1 at the fishhook is absolutely horrendous. I don’t have a response to that but it's diabolical.

How can Santa Cruz County effectively reduce its high level of unemployment?

How can Santa Cruz County effectively reduce its high level of unemployment?

By supporting programs like project Bike Trip. It's a job training and ROP program where we train kids and bike mechanics in bike assembly and repair. It acts as a stepping stone to a multitude of industry career paths such as fabrication, marketing, videography and more.

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.
