What’s so weird about Santa Cruz?

lt_vince
I made up my own bumper sticker, it says "Santa Cruz wasn't weird until you got here." I think what makes Santa Cruz weird is UCSC.

It’s an arty crafty community left over from the ’60s. Unfortunately the rent got too high, but it's very tolerant of alternative lifestyles, and I guess you can call that weird.

lt_christopherNot enough. The city council mostly, I don’t think the city council is liberal enough. I think they pretend to be, but they're really not. And I think the anti- homeless laws are some of the worst in the country and I don’t agree with them. I think the sit-down laws and the anti-panhandling laws are very bad. I atually just moved out of Santa Cruz and I'm happy to be gone.

I think what’s weird about Santa Cruz is that almost everyone you meet is friendly and nice.

i love Santa Cruz and the fact that everyone is it's own person... no one seems to judge. I moved away and was gonna come back - but the rents are just too high. The cost of living in Cali is ridiculous! How did it get so bad?? and the traffic is off the charts too - oh well - i will always come back for visits!

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
