Would you rather be a worried genius, or a joyful simpleton?

Would you support the creation of a sanctuary camp for homeless people in Santa Cruz?

Would you support the creation of a sanctuary camp for homeless people in Santa Cruz?

I think a camp would be a really good place for homeless people to have a safer place to be. I think it's a good idea.

What’s the stupidest thing you did as a kid?

What’s the stupidest thing you did as a kid?

When I was 8 years old, I went to the refrigerator to get  a drink out of the milk carton and I pulled the refrigerator into my face and knocked off my tooth. Straight up.

What’s the next big thing?

What’s the next big thing?

Taking a tube from LA to San Francisco in half an hour going 700 miles per hour on the hyperloop. I'd definitely take it! I lived down in Santa Barbara and It would be awesome to go from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz in 26 minutes and not have to sit in traffic. I love it!

If Santa Cruz had a mascot, what would it be? Why?

If Santa Cruz had a mascot, what would it be? Why?

The monarch butterfly, because it's the [most] beautiful thing that I can remember from first visiting Santa Cruz 25 years ago. And I was awed by their population and beauty and grace out by Natural Bridges.

If you didn't live in Santa Cruz, where would you live? Why?

If you didn't live in Santa Cruz, where would you live? Why?

Spain, because I love it. I lived there before and I just didn’t get to explore it as much as I would have like to have, and a lot of it reminded me of California. It's very very similar. I can see why they came here.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. [email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
