Which is your favorite street musician in Santa Cruz?

lt johnMy favorite street performer goes back a few years, when I first moved to Santa Cruz, it's Tom Scribner. And a relative of his was a student in one of the classes I taught maybe 15 years ago.

 Frank Lima [The Great Morgani]. He's just a nice guy, and he's very creative.

lt larryThe Great Morgani would be my favorite. He's been here for so long and he's just so good. People love him and he adds a flavor to the Pacific Avenue shopping area that doesn't exist without him.

lt VnesI like it when the Shady Groove/China Cat crew comes down and plays for the lovely people of Santa Cruz on a Farmers’ Market Wednesday. That is a beautiful, quintessential downtown Santa Cruz music scene.

lt dylanThe Great Morgani, but aside from him the gentleman that plays the hang drum in front of Logos, which reputedly they only made a limited number of first but had to make more to supply increasing demand.

Conga guy
written by Jimm, March 28, 2014
I dig the guy with the conga (sometimes two) who plays one steady beat, eyes clothes, animate face, for long periods, a trance. He plays across the street from the 99 Bottles pub, usually, I think. Nothing beats seeing him, because it's familiar!

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
