Where's the best place to go in Santa Cruz to get spiritual?

I'll paddle board to the mile buoy to find that peace and tranquility. It's a cathartic spot.

How should the Bush Administration be punished for illegal wiretapping?

How should the Bush Administration be punished  for illegal wiretapping?

I feel like people who are in administrative positions, whether you are a senator or a president should go to a trial of court just like any citizen in a public hearing with a jury. And if they’re found guilty then they have to serve their time.

What do you think about Obama announcing plans to expand off-shore oil drilling?

What do you think about Obama announcing plans to expand  off-shore oil drilling?

I think it's drastic, I'm against it. I'd like for the priority to be alternative energy sources.

What traditions have been passed down in your family?

I grew up in a religious Shinto famiy and we would visit homes of sick people and hospitals and give them healing prayers, prayers for healing. And that's been done in my family since my great great grandparents. I'm Japanese American Nisei.

Do you support lifting the dog ban on Pacific Avenue?

Do you support lifting the dog ban on Pacific Avenue?

I support the lifting of the dog ban on a conditional basis ... if there are dog disposal stations on each block with the plastic doggy-pooper-picker-up-er, that are clearly identified, and an ordinance that penalizes people who knowingly let their dogs poop and then walk away from it. In that case I would definitely vote to lift the ban.

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.
