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.

What’s another way the county could boost revenue?

What’s another way the county could boost revenue?

I think that it would be better to have more leniency on the permits for small businesses in the city. I think the city would be able to get more revenue if small businesses were able to move through the whole process quicker. I think that would be helpful.

A story about a guy that’s searching for a job that starts after 12:30 because he needs his surfing time. He goes around searching from place to place and keeps getting thrown out.

What’s the best and the worst thing that could come out of assisting Syria?

What’s the best and the worst thing that could come out of assisting Syria?


The worst is clear, getting bogged down in a long civil war and spending another decade with American boots on the ground. And the best would be to be able to stop the conflict and let Syrians live in peace.

Good Times Holiday Giving

Giving Where It Helps

 

Giving Thanks: The Thought-Form of Solution

We are in the time and under the influence of Sagittarius, sign of the wanderer, good food, good music, and the joy (Jupiter as ruler) that occurs from giving to others while simultaneously giving thanks from our hearts. Having the Thanksgiving holiday during the month of Sag is not a mistake. No other sign understands joy (an aspect of the Soul) as Sag (except Pisces when not in despair). “Sag is a beam of directed and focused light. The beam reveals a greater light ahead, illuminating the Way to the center of the Light,” emitting the Ray of Joyfulness. Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude; in the form of prayers, thoughts, feelings, wishes, hopes and greetings. Gratitude is something we still need to learn. Gratitude creates goodwill. Together, gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution” for humanity and our world’s problems. Gratitude and goodwill are the prerequisites for the reappearance of the Christ, the Aquarian World Teacher. In Ancient Wisdom texts it is written, “being grateful is the hallmark of one who is enlightened.” Gratitude comes from the Soul—the characteristics of which are love and wisdom (Ray 2). Gratitude is scientifically and occultly (mental, not emotional) a releasing agent. Gratitude liberates us and everything around us. Also a service to others, gratitude is deeply scientific in nature, releasing us from the past and laying open our future path leading to the new culture and civilization, the new laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarian, the Age of Friendship and Equality. The Hierarchy lays much emphasis upon gratitude. Let us be grateful this year and this season together. And so now the days of light illuminating the darkness begin (December’s festivals and feast days). Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I am grateful for all of you, my readers.

What charities would you like to see people support this season?

Judy Allen, Scotts Valley, Consulting

 

Big Basin Vineyards

I was just in the process of purchasing a bottle of Big Basin’s 2012 Homestead in Vinocruz when Matt Ryan walked into the store. Ryan manages the tasting room, sales and the mailing list at Big Basin, and, considering the popularity of their wines, he’s a very busy man.
