How will you know when the recession is over?

How will you know when the recession is over?
The recession will probably be over when people will be able to buy homes again, sell their homes if they want to, have jobs, and not worry every day about making ends meet.

If money were not an object, what would you do with your life?

If money were not an object, what would you do with your life?

 

Travel the world, take care of my bills and all my family’s bills. Also create an institute that would give back to everybody, like an art or a culinary institute.

What is the best and worst about being your gender?

What is the best and worst about being your gender?

 

Worst is preconception about how you’re supposed to act and behave

What are your thoughts on building a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero?

What are your thoughts on building a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero?

 

I think that it's ridiculous that people are protesting it and that it's a racist and stereotyping kind of a thing.  Just because certain factions of the Islamic state committed violent acts against Americans it doesn't condemn all the people that are American citizens and have a right to practice their faith. Forgiveness is much more powerful than holding resentment and it would help everybody.

What's not yet a crime, but should be?

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
