What’s the best advice you ever received?

What’s the best advice you ever received?

Moving to Santa Cruz—from my sister. She said move up here after mom passed away, and that’s the best decision I ever made in my life.

What’s your favorite quote? Why?

What’s your favorite quote? Why?

"People have the power to redeem the work of fools."—Patti Smith.
It's motivating and it allows you to realize that as an individual you have the power to make a difference, even when you see others doing things you dislike or disprove of. It puts the emphasis on an individual’s actions and living as you believe.

Should we keep Santa Cruz weird, or keep Santa Cruz safe and clean? Or can we do both?

Should we keep Santa Cruz weird, or keep Santa Cruz safe and clean? Or can we do both?

I think Santa Cruz will always be weird because of the type of people that it draws. But we could definitely focus on staying safer and always being aware of keeping our environment clean, happy and healthy.

Does Santa Cruz need more surveillance cameras?

Does Santa Cruz need more surveillance cameras?

Absolutely not. Why? I think we’ve moved beyond that. I'm all in for a strong police presence. I think the homeless issue downtown has got a little out of control, but it's too much like "Big Brother" looking over your shoulder watching every single move you make.

Who is the most inspirational human in Santa Cruz County?

Who is the most inspirational human in Santa Cruz County?

I'd say it's Rene Schlaepfer, the pastor for Twin Lakes Church. Very, very inspirational. He really inspires people to get out there and be in the community, community service, helping the homeless, food drives, missions right here in our own community with the schools, without asking for anything in return.

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
