Would you support the creation of a desalination plant in Santa Cruz? Why? Why not?

Would you support the creation of a desalination plant in Santa Cruz? Why? Why not?

I don’t. I think the same technology that they would be using for the desal would be useful for recycling water, and a lot cheaper with less environmental impact.

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.

The Meaning of ‘LIFE’

With a new documentary film about his work, and huge exhibits on both coasts, acclaimed Santa Cruz nature photographer Frans Lanting is having a landmark year. But his crusade for conservation doesn’t leave much time for looking back

 

Seasons of Opportunity

Everything in our world has a specific time (a season) in which to accomplish a specific work—a “season” that begins (opportunity) and ends (time’s up). I can feel the season is changing. The leaves turning colors, the air cooler, sunbeams casting shadows in different places. It feels like a seasonal change has begun in the northern hemisphere. Christmas is in four months, and 2015 is swiftly speeding by. Soon it will be autumn and time for the many Festivals of Light. Each season offers new opportunities. Then the season ends and new seasons take its place. Humanity, too, is given “seasons” of opportunity. We are in one of those opportunities now, to bring something new (Uranus) into our world, especially in the United States. Times of opportunity can be seen in the astrology chart. In the U.S. chart, Uranus (change) joins Chiron (wound/healing). This symbolizes a need to heal the wounds of humanity. Uranus offers new archetypes, new ways of doing things. The Uranus/Chiron (Aries/Pisces) message is, “The people of the U.S. are suffering. New actions are needed to bring healing and well-being to humanity. So the U.S. can fulfill its spiritual task of standing within the light and leading humanity within and toward the light.” Thursday, Aquarius Moon, Mercury enters Libra. The message, “To bring forth the new order in the world, begin with acts of Goodwill.” Goodwill produces right relations with everyone and everything. The result is a world of progressive well-being and peacefulness (which is neither passive nor the opposite of war). Saturday is the full moon, the solar light of Virgo streaming into the Earth. Our waiting now begins, for the birth of new light at winter solstice. The mother (hiding the light of the soul, the holy child), identifying the feminine principle, says, “I am the mother and the child. I, God (Father), I Matter (Mother), We are One.”

Comanche Cellars

Michael Simons, owner and winemaker of Comanche Cellars, once had a trusted steed called Comanche, which was part of his paper route and his rodeo circuit, from the tender age of 10. In memory of this beautiful horse, he named his winery Comanche, and Comanche’s shoes grace the label of each handcrafted bottle.
