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.

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!

Smells Like Team Spirit

The organizers of TEDx Santa Cruz don’t just talk about this year’s theme, ‘radical collaboration’—they live it

 

Pluto Retrograde, Aries New Moon, Lyrid Meteor Showers

As the Lyrid meteors, radiating from the star Vega in the Harp constellation, begin showering heaven and earth with light, Pluto, planet of transformation (or die) turns stationary retrograde (Thursday, April 16), 15 degrees Capricorn. Retrogrades have purpose, allowing humanity time to review, reassess, research and reinvent while returning to previous situations. Retrogrades are times of inner activity, seeds sown in bio-dynamically prepared soil. Pluto retrograde is the most serious and resolute of retrogrades—a pure tincture, or, as in homeopathy, a “constitutional” touching the essences of all that matters. Pluto offers deep insight into confusion or puzzlement and areas where transformation is still incomplete. It’s valuable to have one’s astrology chart to follow what area of life the major planets— especially Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto—are influencing. These outer planets have long-term and lasting effects on our psyche, inner/outer life events, how people see us and how we see and process our world. Pluto, retrograde for five months (until Sept. 24) offers deep earthquakes of change, awakens humanity to the task of building (Capricorn) the new culture and civilization, flailing our inner world about, deepening us until we transform and do things differently. Pluto is an unrelenting teacher. New moon (29 Aries) is Saturday, April 18. With the personality-building keynote, “Let form again be sought.” Mars anchors the new creative fires of Aries into our world. The New Group of World Servers participates together in the new moon festival, while also preparing for the Taurus Wesak, Buddha Full Moon Festival (May 3). Join us everyone.
