Rhapsodies Feel-Good Fixes

Riding your bike is nice and all, but do you think Exxon really cares? BY STEVE SALKOVICS

A

s I write this, I am winding up a full weekend of Earth Day activities with my family. While I greatly enjoyed these events, the sobering realities remain. I find myself bemused by the fairly ineffective gestures offered by the media for families to “plant trees” or “recycle more” or “bike to work/school for one day out of the year.” April 22, Earth Day, marked the end of the public comment period for the Keystone XL pipeline, a horrible, unnecessary idea that many experts believe will signal game over for the climate. One only has to look to the recent Exxon Tar Sands oil spill in Arkansas for evidence of how dirty and crappy this project is. If you doubt the political power of a fossil fuel company like Exxon, you can read the underreported coverage of the spill—despite the Exxon-enforced media blackout that resulted in Sheriff’s deputies threatening to arrest reporters if they did not leave the site. As most of my friends and family will attest, I am one of the most skeptical, evidence-driven, conservative people they know. But I have been forced, by the preponderance of evidence, to admit that climate destabilization is going to be one of the most serious issues for human civilization. Even the most conservative organizations now realize we are way beyond “feel-good” gestures. Even the most selfish consumer must now admit that we cannot continue with business as usual. Big Oil and Big Coal are the most profitable and least accountable business interests in history. Because of their huge profits, they have lobbying power that rivals any political entity or party. If we want to make a real difference, we need to hurt the fossil fuel companies where they can actually feel it. The one real gesture you can make is to convince your pension companies, your unions, your portfolio managers and your university board of trustees to divest from fossil fuel companies until they agree to change from a selfish and harmful fossil fuel business into a more ethical energy company. There are plenty of online petitions that would take less time to fill out then it would to plant even the smallest bush. Steve Salkovics lives in Sebastopol.

Too Graphic

With the front-page photo and headline of tragedy, the very undoing of supporting the Herczog family’s plea for compassion began. Reports of the unnerving details of the fatality serve no one—the grieving family, the deceased father and disturbed son, nor humanity reading it. The words “brutal” and “gruesome” were aptly used to describe action graphically which is not appropriate for anyone (stable or psychologically vulnerable) to read. The basic story should have been conveyed in a nonsensationalistic manner. I speak from experience. Fifty years ago (when I was 12 years old), a TV news program showed the aftermath of a slain family’s home and described the ordeal. That tortured me for one and a half years, and challenged my own stability. Consider the effect it could have on people who are psychologically challenged (such as the young man in the article). Please recognize your social impact in future reporting in the best interest for the well-being of humanity.

SHEILA NEILL Fairfax

Thank You Thank you for publishing the heartbreaking story of the Herczog family (“A Picture of Tragedy,” April 10). It’s not clear which is more horrific: the nature of the crime itself, which is terrifying; the fact that this boy’s anguished parents didn’t call law enforcement because they very understandably feared for his life; or the continuing shameful status of mental healthcare in this country. My mother was schizophrenic, and although she wasn’t violent, I experienced time and again the consequences of societal fears and ignorance, and lack of proper care for the mentally ill. Here’s to better education of the public and to the police in dealing with such folks, to better treatment and funding, and to more compassion everywhere.

Healing for Houston

My hopes and prayers surround this entire family and all who are seeking the truth and its relevance to Houston and his care beyond this sad moment. I, too, wake up everyday to a tragic nightmare that began over seven years ago with psychosis and the killing of two of our five children by their medicationinduced psychotic father and my husband, David Crespi. I believe that we all need to seek the truth to facilitate meaningful action and healing beyond the horror. See CrespiFamilyHope. org for details. I completely support understanding and mercy for Houston.

KIM CRESPI Charlotte, N.C. Editor’s Note: For more on Houston Herczog’s story, see the cover feature in the new issue of ‘Mother Jones’ magazine.

Unwinnable Madness President Obama has pledged to bring the perpetrator of the bombing in Boston to justice. That doesn’t comfort me. If my wife had been killed or my child maimed, what I’d want is for my wife to be alive and my child whole. And there’s no way that such incidents can be prevented in the future. President Bush said, “They hate us for our freedoms.” That’s absurd. They hate us because we freely kick the crap out of them. We invade, drop bombs, kick in their doors, shoot them down, destroy their countries and lock up their resources. This is not rocket science; it’s elementary logic. Having declared a war on terror, we sow the seeds of hatred by sending troops all over the world—war everywhere all the time, an unwinnable madness. Now we have “covert operations” spreading across Africa. What arrogance! What stupidity! If anyone did to us what we do to others, we’d hate and fight them, too. This is the territory of empire.

Paper RESTRICTED ACCESS Protected cliff swallows continue to get caught in netting beneath this Highway 101 bridge.

Bird Call

While Caltrans claims it’s fixed the problem, entangled cliff swallows in Petaluma keep dying BY ALASTAIR BLAND

F

ederal and state wildlife officials have made virtually no efforts to amend a Caltrans-related situation in Petaluma that has directly caused the deaths of more than a hundred migratory birds currently nesting under a pair of freeway

overpasses, according to a local bird rescue center. Veronica Bowers, of Songbird Care & Conservation in Sebastopol, has almost singlehandedly monitored and investigated the matter since March, when she first called Caltrans to warn that netting dangling from beneath the Highway 101 bridge over the

Petaluma River was likely to cause problems for federally protected cliff swallows, which migrate north from South America each year and build nests in, among other places, the freeway overpasses that cross Lakeville Highway and the Petaluma River. But Bowers says nobody at Caltrans responded, even after she called and left a second ) 10 voice message. This was

There are two Sonoma counties, says the North Bay Organizing Project (NBOP). One is made up of workers and their families suffering economic hardship during this time of financial uncertainty, while the other, comprising wealthy whitecollar types, continues to rake in big bucks. This isn’t exactly news, but on Saturday, the NBOP is holding a conference to discuss a study commissioned by the Living Wage Coalition and the NBOP that uses census data to confirm the existence of these realities. The Equity Summit is a daylong event with workshops led by community members and policy experts. The keynote speaker is Chris Benner (pictured), a professor of community and regional development at UC Davis, who will discuss the study being released at the event. Some highlights of the study: about 11 percent of Sonoma County residents live below the federal poverty threshold of $10,180; compensating for cost of living in Sonoma County, over 27 percent of residents from the 2010 census are living in economic hardship, and in Santa Rosa, it’s 32 percent; the county’s median household income fell 5.7 percent from 2007 to 2010; African Americans earn 61 cents for every dollar earned by whites, Latinos earn 69 cents per dollar, and women earn 79 cents for each of their male counterparts’ dollars. These statistics are just the tip of the iceberg, but it’s not all negative. The community sessions will discuss what to do to actually face the problem in a grassroots way, like targeting the roots of inequality, rather than just crying over spilled milk. The Equity Summit is Saturday, April 27, at the Glaser Center. 547 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 10:30am to 3pm. 707.481.2970. Free; RSVP required.—Nicolas Grizzle

still before any birds had been conďŹ rmed dead in the newly installed netting dangling from the bridges and that is supposedly part of an upcoming construction project. Then the death toll began, says Bowers, who saw the ďŹ rst entangled swallows on April 7 under the Petaluma River bridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were well over a dozen cliff swallows dead or dying in the nets,â&#x20AC;? Bowers says. She says she called Caltrans again, and then contacted the two major agencies charged with protecting wildlifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the federal Fish and Wildlife Service and the state Department of Fish and Wildlifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to ďŹ le a complaint. Caltrans never responded, while each wildlife management agency took three days to do so, according to Bowers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was appalling,â&#x20AC;? Bowers says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each day they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer, I kept going back and ďŹ nding more dead birds.â&#x20AC;? Bowers says she ďŹ nally had brief telephone conversations with both the Fish and Wildlife Service and the Department of Fish and Wildlife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d look into it, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the status since,â&#x20AC;? she says. By now, the death toll of cliff swallows at the two Highway 101 overpasses may be approaching 200, according to Bowers. The majority of the birds have been entangled under the Petaluma River overpass, where a contracting company called CC Myers Inc. ďŹ rst installed the nets as part of preliminary work on an upcoming $77 million retroďŹ t. The nets are presumably meant to protect the birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or at least keep them away from the barrier while retroďŹ t work is underway. The Fish and Wildlife Service forbids construction projects from harming nesting swallows. Yet law enforcement officials have hardly jumped to amend the situation. On Friday, Janice Mackey, a spokeswoman with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, said that Caltrans had already â&#x20AC;&#x153;resolvedâ&#x20AC;? the problem,

adjusting the nets so that swallows would no longer try and squeeze between small openings in the barrier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caltrans ďŹ xed that issue on Monday,â&#x20AC;? Mackey says. But according to Bowers, at least nine more swallows were found dead by her organization in the netting between Monday and Friday of last week. When pressed for a better answer, Mackey says the department told her it would call back with an update. The return call never came. At the federal level, Michael Woodbridge of the Fish and Wildlife Service would say only that his agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law enforcement officers were investigating the problem. He said he could offer no further comment. Caltrans officials did not return multiple calls from the Bohemian seeking comment, but have already told other reporters that their project planners have strived to amend the situation by cinching up the netting at openings through which swallows were attempting to access their traditional nesting grounds. Bowers says no obvious ďŹ xes have been made and that any assurance that the problem has been resolved â&#x20AC;&#x153;is misinformation.â&#x20AC;? She has repeatedly suggested alternate methods of keeping the birds away from the construction site, such as silicon-based paint or TeďŹ&#x201A;on sheathing, to no avail. At the Bird Rescue Center in Santa Rosa, executive director Mary Ellen Rayner says she has personally called state and federal authorities three times, and that her staff of volunteers has sent emails to various officials demanding actionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and even suggesting solutions, like alternative barriers made of glass or plasticâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that would solve the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems to me that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just ignoring us,â&#x20AC;? says Rayner, who speculates that higher-proďŹ le birds like raptors might receive more efficient response in a comparable scenario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever the reason, these regulatory agencies arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enforcing laws that should protect migratory birds.â&#x20AC;?

Separating credible news from the muck BY JENNA LOCEFF

T

he recent release of Project Censored: The Movie, which encourages media consumers to pay attention to what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being fed and by whom, is well-timed for readers in Sonoma County and beyond.

This past month, ďŹ ve radio stationsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;KSRO, the Mix, Hot 101.7, the River and Froggyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;were sold by East Coast corporate parent Maverick Media back to the local ownership of Sonoma Media Group, helmed by Lawrence Amaturo. Similarly, rumors have continued to spread about Sonoma Media Investments, which already owns the Press Democrat, Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Argus-Courier and the Sonoma Index-Tribune and other associated publications, and which founder Darius Anderson has hinted will be buying even more newspapers. Project Censored: The Movie, which premiered at the Sonoma International Film Festival earlier this month, chronicles the nonproďŹ t located at Sonoma State University whose mission is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;teach students and the public

about the role of a free press in a free societyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and to tell the news that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the news and why.â&#x20AC;? Some news, as the ďŹ lm suggests, is simply junk food. In an attempt to be honest about what news is and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior director of news and social products this month came out against news outlets printing thinly veiled marketing campaigns as news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Google News is not a marketing service, and we consider articles that employ these types of promotional tactics to be in violation of our quality guidelines,â&#x20AC;? said Richard Gingras, in a statement. Additionally, it was announced that if an online site mixes news content with marketing materials, the entire publication may be excluded from appearing in Google News searches. A win for media credibility! It is difficult, in this day and age, to know which are the credible news sources. From small publications inďŹ&#x201A;uenced by both advertisers and local government to huge corporate news outlets promoting larger agendas, there is often a disconnect from what is written and what is really going on. In the Project Censored ďŹ lm, Khalil Bendib, a political cartoonist, talks about how corporate ownership of news can stiďŹ&#x201A;e the truth: â&#x20AC;&#x153;General Electric owns NBC. General Electric is a bomb maker. NBC is not going to be against war.â&#x20AC;? This dynamic isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t foreign to smaller local media outlets either, as demonstrated by the scrutiny applied to Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affiliations and those of his partners. In the era of junk food news, as Project Censored: The Movie says, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital for news consumers to truly understand the reason stories appear, and to constantly question whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presented.

THE GOOD LIFE Daniel Kedan and Marianna Gardenhire at Backyard champion local farms for their menu.

In Our Backyard Hyperlocally sourced patio dining in Forestville BY JESSICA DUR TAYLOR

D

aniel Kedan was fired suddenly from his first serious cooking job. In 2004, just a few years out of college, he’d landed a position as sous chef at Il Palio Restaurant in Shelton, Conn., running the kitchen virtually by himself. Then the restaurant was sold, and the new owner brought in a fancy chef from New York.

“I thought if that’s the way this business is,” Kedan tells me on a recent morning, “I don’t want anything to do with it.” Soon, however, he went to Europe and had a gastronomic epiphany. While in Rome, he dined on a whole fish with salsa verde accompanied by a bowl of pasta and truffles. “That was the moment I knew what I was going to do with my life,” says Kedan, who, along with his wife, pastry chef Marianna

Gardenhire, opened Backyard in Forestville six months ago. After returning from Europe, Kedan quit his corporate deli job and moved to the Napa Valley to be part of the first Associate in Occupational Studies degree program at the Culinary Institute of America’s St. Helena campus. It was there that he met Marianna, the only other person at the school who liked the Grateful Dead. Kedan talks about California like a classic East Coast transplant who followed the late-’90s jam

band scene across the country, philosophy degree in one pocket, compass set to west in the other. “The first time I visited, I fell in love,” gushes Kedan, who hasn’t missed a summer on the Yuba River since 1999. “That’s where I proposed,” he says, “and that’s where Marianna and I married ourselves.” While still in school, Kedan honed his technical skills in the newly opened kitchen of Ad Hoc in Yountville. After stints at the General’s Daughter in Sonoma, Solage in Calistoga and Cantinetta Piero in Yountville, Kedan and Gardenhire heeded the call of West County, with its earthier, less corporate, decidedly locavore vibe. In 2010, the culinary couple started working in Sebastopol— Kedan at Peter Lowell’s, Marianna at P30, whose fire burned bright and brief. Lowell’s introduced Kedan to local farmers, as well as to Luke Hefele and two other cooks who now work with him at Backyard. Kedan euphemistically “parted ways” with Lowell a little more than a year later. “Working at Peter Lowell’s was one of the best things that could’ve happened to me,” says Kedan. He grins. “But leaving there was even better.” Both he and Gardenhire realized that they were too stubborn to work for other people; it was time to become their own bosses. Given the easy camaraderie and efficiency of the long, open kitchen, it’s hard to believe that Backyard (formerly Sarah’s Forestville Kitchen) is still in its infancy. “It’s been a rollercoaster,” says Kedan, who gives equal shrift to both the ups and downs. “We borrowed every dollar to open this restaurant,” he explains, including a serendipitous—and sizable— investment, at the last minute, from a man he’s only met once. They opened on Nov. 1, just in time for the winter gloom to keep people hovered over their soup pots at home. But despite inconsistent business—recently, their best week was followed by their very worst—the owners have had a chance ) 14

to work out the kinks, including parting with an early partner who didn’t work out. If Kedan weren’t so sincere, he’d be a cliché. He starts his day by doing qigong with Hefele, who in addition to cooking also teaches capoeira at Sebastopol’s Shugyo Center. His restaurant is named for the abundance of locally grown ingredients that find their way onto his simple white plates. The homey décor consists of glass bowl terrariums, rustic plant boxes and local artwork. A bundle of sage sits by the cash register. And yet Kedan never once utters the phrase farm-to-table—he doesn’t have to. During the hour that I’m here, watching him slice potatoes and scoop polenta, we are interrupted several times by farmers making deliveries. Kedan negotiates a price with Brad who’s brought a bounty of beets, leeks, and frisse from his Roots of Creation Farm. An egg delivery comes in from RLR Vineyard, owned by Randolph Johnson, whose paintings decorate the walls of the dining room. The diverse menu—Backyard serves brunch, lunch and dinner— reads like a guidebook, with items like the duck egg frittata that includes Wyland Orchards duck eggs, Strong Arm Farm leeks and fava leaves, Redwood Hill chèvre, crispy First Light Farm potatoes and wild foraged watercress ($12). Wherever possible, the ingredients’ source farms are listed on the menu. At one point, Kedan waves me over to the refrigerator. “You’re not a vegetarian, are you?” he asks before showing me the half pig that he’ll finish butchering later that day. As we talk, the very last of the locally grown potatoes are crisping in the fryer. Hefele is seasoning the kale chips that he’s created as their substitute. “The cooks in this kitchen are truly amazing,” says Kedan, who mentions the phrase “high standards” more than once. “I feel really lucky,” he says. “We all learn from each other.”

SMALL BITES

Pop-Ups with Pop Santa Rosa’s Moonlight Brewing Company is a kind of hidden gem. Fans of the brewery’s Guinness-like stout Death and Taxes have hand-marked maps of where it’s available on tap, and will happily wait over four months for their sweatshirt order to be processed. Pop-up dinners pairing the brews are rare, to say the least. That in mind, Spoonbar’s four-course meal seems even more spectacular than the menu would dictate. Wagyu beef tartare, slowroasted duck and butterscotch tart with tobacco ice cream and a macaroon are paired with Twist of Fate, Points North and Uncle Ollie, respectively. A drool-inducing, eye-saucering menu, indeed. For fans of wine and butchery, Longmeadow Ranch is hosting its “Live Fire Lamb” event featuring Longmeadow chef Stephen Barber with Fatted Calf butcher Taylor Boetticher. The chefs will demonstrate how to butcher a whole lamb and give tips on what to look for when buying meat (“marbling” is sure to be mentioned). The menu includes lamb brochettes, meatballs, lamb asado and grilled leg of lamb, with sauces and vegetables to accompany, all paired with Longmeadow Ranch wines. The Moonlight Brewing dinner is Thursday, April 25, at Spoonbar (219 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg; 6:15pm; $65; 707.433.7222); the lamb dinner is Sunday, April 28, at Longmeadow Ranch Farmstead (738 Main St., St. Helena; 3pm; $150; 707.963.4555).—Nicolas Grizzle

Paul Mathew Vineyards Boutiquey Valdiguié—just don’t call it Napa Gamay BY JAMES KNIGHT

T

he first thing to understand about Paul Mathew is that there is no Paul Mathew. It’s a combination of names, like Kosta Browne—and that’s not entirely unrelated, as you’ll see.

The second thing to understand is, there is no Paul. While working as sommelier at John Ash & Co., Mat Gustafson persuaded his associate that starting a winery would be a really good idea. If this story sounds familiar, it’s because when he left John Ash, Gustafson trained future Pinot Noir upstart Dan Kosta to be his replacement. There’s more to the story. While the associate, Paul, dropped out, Mat kept the name. Gustafson, experienced in wine sales and buying positions in the industry, took a winemaking position with Dutton Estate, and now manages the “gravity flow” custom crush facility at Moshin, where he also vints his product. Now, with the opening of their sunny, corner tasting room in downtown Graton, the story of Mat and Barb and a grape named Valdiguié just got a little less obscure. The tasting room has a full-wall chalkboard for monthly wine and food seminars. Barb Gustafson says that she thinks a great winemaker is someone who understands food. “Mat’s an incredible cook. To me, it doesn’t come naturally,” she admits. “But Mat has always loved cooking.” The 2012 Turner Vineyard Valdiguié ($20) mightn’t make it to the main course. From an old, two-acre patch in Knights Valley, a survivor from the days when this obscure-sounding grape was the workhorse misnomer “Napa Gamay,” it’s a dark, cloudy pink, smells like a bucketful of fresh-crushed black grapes and tastes like strawberries—think Beaujolais Nouveau, although Barb says they like to think Cru Beaujolais. Different, and fun. More familiar aromas of hard butterscotch candy jump right out of the 2010 Weeks Vineyard Chardonnay ($32) and hit the nose, while the dry, and dried herblike, slightly bitter palate demands to be taken seriously. The 2010 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ($32) is a blend of lots from Horseshoe Bend, TnT and Ruxton, all small, family-run vineyards at the western edge of the AVA. It’s got thyme and oregano spicing up bright raspberry flavors and a sort of sour cherry Chianti finish, while the individual vineyard releases ($45) slip progressively from hay, pine duff and bright cherry, into darker allspice, oily oak, and black cherry territory. The best recommendation? I’m told that nine out of 10 visitors choose to refund their tasting fee with a purchase. The fresh, crisp 2012 Rosé ($20) makes that choice easy. Paul Mathew Vineyards, 9060 Graton Road, Graton. Thursday– Sunday, 10:30am–4:30pm. Tasting fee, $10. 707.865.2505.

The Doyle Collection finds a permanent home at SRJC BY GRETCHEN GILES

Which is not so very bad at all if you are fortunate enough to be a student at Santa Rosa Junior College, where the seven-year-old Doyle Library just keeps getting better. Completed in 2006 as the

largest building on campus, the Doyle is a marvel of environmental sensibility, even making 350 tons of ice on its roof each night to cool the building’s air by day. The motif of the carpet is based on the images of local

plants, color choices reflect local geography, a white-noise machine creates a uniform ambiance and natural light soars in through large panes. As splendid as the Doyle already is, library technician Scott Lipanovich has found a way to make it even better—by adding a permanent art collection. Which isn’t to say that it’s been easy. In fact, rounding up some 80 pieces from 52 artists took Lipanovich two and a half years. Some call it a labor of love; Lipanovich calls it “The Doyle Collection.” An opening reception

is slated for Friday, April 26. “We have this great building, great natural light and abundance of flat spaces on the walls. It seems only natural to create a great art collection,” Lipanovich explains. “And because, since the 1950s, we’ve had a great staff, we had the chance to do it only with people who’ve been on staff, which is unique.” The work took so long to amass because Lipanovich adhered to a strict set of rules. He built the collection during his own volunteer time. All the art had to have been made by SRJC faculty

and staff who were at the college from 1950 or later. As there was no budget for the project, the work had to be donated. If the artist was alive, he or she would bear the cost of framing; if the artist was not, Lipanovich invariably ended up paying for it himself. A final piece went to the framer’s just last weekend, costing him over $400. An unassuming man concerned that not too much attention be made of him, Lipanovich shrugs mildly. “It’s a wonderful drawing and it’s in a permanent collection,” he reasons of the

expenditure, “so I’m happy to do it.” He has also been happy to spend Friday through Sunday for nearly three years visiting artists, spending full days viewing their life’s work, and coaxing donations. “We only had about seven donation-donations,” Lipanovich estimates. “Usually,” he smiles, “it was a pursuit.” Such pursuits normally included food and conversation, and perhaps a new friendship. Not a bad way to spend one’s long weekends, actually. “The best part of doing ) 21

this was the donors,” Lipanovich says, referring to the artists he met. “Spending time with the donors and just having lunch. Hanging out. The donors are great.” The list of artists collected is a who’s-who of North Bay creators, and includes such international names as Robert Arneson, who taught for just one year at the JC, 1958–1959, and left when he wasn’t hired on. A busy pastel self-portrait—which also graces the cover of Jonathan Fineberg’s new Arneson biography, A Troublesome Subject, released last month—hangs near the top of the main stairwell. At the bottom of the stairs is a piece by Maurice Lapp, who has work in the Whitney Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago and SFMOMA, among others. Lapp, 88, joined the faculty in 1956, upon returning from a 19-month painting fellowship in

Mexico City. Just before leaving Mexico, he entered a work, The Travelers, in competition. Famed painter Rufino Tamayo judged the show and deemed Lapp’s piece the best. Lipanovich, a friend of Lapp’s who has helped the artist catalogue and organize his work for a number of other exhibitions, had never heard this story nor seen the work. Lapp surprised him with The Travelers as a gift. Both of Lapp’s children are flying in for Friday’s reception. Other names include the superb Larry Thomas, revered for his drawings of the natural world; photographers John LeBaron and John Sappington; painters Mary Black, Philip Buller, Elizabeth Quandt, Kathleen Youngquist and Donald Feasél; sculptors Bruce Johnson and John Watrous; and others. “[W]ith every single artist I contacted, we eventually came

up with something really good of theirs we could use,” Lipanovich says. “We would literally go through everything they did, not even just for the Doyle Collection, but just to see it all. There is a really good spirit to this.” There’s a really good look to it, too. Walking the 1.5 acres of art that Lipanovich has hung is just as satisfying as a museum visit, with just as many unexpected heartstopping moments. But make no mistake, the focus is on learning. “This is their home,” he says of the students slouched and splayed and spread and slumped all around him. “We’re a library first,” Lipanovich stresses. “The idea was to enliven and enrich the building, not make it an art gallery. Again, it’s part of their house. It’s not like [students are] going into an art gallery; they’re going into the college library.”

Which is not to say that they don’t notice changes. In fact, when library staffer Alicia Virtue took down a piece to photograph for the collection’s website, a slight uproar ensued. “Within 15 minutes, students were at the reference desk,” Lipanovich remembers, “saying, ‘Someone took one of our paintings!’” Lipanovich explains that while the students may rotate out every two years, the art won’t. “One of the things my friends hate is when they give a piece to a museum and it goes to the back and never gets seen. “As long as I’m here,” he smiles, “the work isn’t moving.” ‘The Doyle Collection’ is honored with a reception on Friday, April 26, 5:30pm–8pm, in the Doyle Library.

The week’s events: a selective guide

This year will mark the 20th anniversary of Dazed and Confused, the 1993 film that itself served as a de facto 17th anniversary of the summer of 1976. With all this meta-retro flying around, it’s only fitting that bellbottom-andbong-rips nostalgia act Foghat, the band responsible for that film’s prominent theme “Slow Ride,” is out on the road. Anchored by lone original member Roger Earl, a drummer who once unsuccessfully auditioned for the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Foghat hopes you remember hits like “Fool for the City” and “Drivin’ Wheel” on Saturday, April 27, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 8pm. $35. 707.259.0123.

If there were ever a “Keep Healdsburg Weird” campaign (and we can think of one certain brilliant resident who posts Japanese bondage art on telephone poles and leads mustached sex workshops in the town plaza who might helm it), it should take tips from Bergamot Alley’s web presence. “Hippo Sweat Is Red,” the wine bar’s site reads at the bottom, apropos of nothing. Elsewhere, it quotes Willy Wonka, touts its “porn room” (it’s not what you think), and, if you look closely, hosts a shot of Shelleyann Orphan’s Century Flower. This is the type of place for live music, indeed, and Mr. December plays here on Sunday, April 28. 328 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. 5:30pm. Free. 707.433.8720.

He might have produced Kendrick Lamar’s top-level debut last year, but his over-12-years-inthe-making forthcoming album Detox is now the Chinese Democracy of the rap world.

same generation. Targeted by ads and apps, catered to by TV shows like Girls, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re intensely studied, analyzed and packaged. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also the subject of a new book, Hard to Get: 20-Something Women and the Paradox of Sexual Freedom (University of California Press; $29.95) by Leslie C. Bell, a psychotherapist in Berkeley, the college town that boasts more therapists per capita than any other place in the country. Bell,

42, specializes in issues that hit women especially hardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from lowself esteem to eating disorders, and that great bugaboo, personal relationships. Twenty-something women ďŹ&#x201A;ock to her office. Hard to Get offers compelling narratives from the North, East and South Bay, from women who are gay, straight, Latino, Asian, white, Catholic, Buddhist, wealthy and poor. Bell tells their stories, in their own words, about dating, oral sex, hooking up, good girls and bad girls. With so much to

say about sex, she has trouble getting a handle on the subject. Still, her book opens a rich and fascinating Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box that will be useful to therapists and young women in therapyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or eager for psychological help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In recent years, it has become unclear what it means to be a woman, especially a liberated woman,â&#x20AC;? Bell writes. Still, she places twenty-something females in three clear categories: the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexual womanâ&#x20AC;?; the â&#x20AC;&#x153;relational womanâ&#x20AC;?; and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;desiring woman,â&#x20AC;? who manages to have both meaningful sex and a meaningful relationship. In a recent interview, Bell tells me she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title to suggest that young women â&#x20AC;&#x153;play hard to getâ&#x20AC;? or that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hard to understand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hard to get,â&#x20AC;? she explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the sense that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re unable to reach their own goals for personal fulďŹ llment.â&#x20AC;? Like Arlie Hochschild, the renowned Berkeley sociologist and one of her intellectual mentors, Bell acknowledges the force of the marketplace and the power of technology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our culture, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the expectation that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on the job 24 hours a day,â&#x20AC;? she tells me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With cell phones and laptops, people work crazy hours. Under conditions like these, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increasingly hard to have a career and to enjoy a meaningful personal relationship.â&#x20AC;? Bell ďŹ nds fault with parents, teachers and the culture at large. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young women donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have role models, and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have frank conversations with mothers and fathers about how to take the initiative, expose themselves and be vulnerable sexually,â&#x20AC;? she tells me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a society, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not teaching these essential skills, and young women are befuddled.â&#x20AC;? Bell insists that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know what goes on ) 24 behind bedroom doors

Single Girl ( 23 and that the sexual activity of “ordinary” women is little known and understood. Indeed, Bay Area therapists say that clients are unreliable sources when it comes to their own sexual activity. Still, young women are often willing to provide clues about their adventures in the erogenous zones, if not lurid details themselves. After all, twentysomething women love to talk about sex. At a packed bar on Fourth Street in Santa Rosa, Camille, 23, nurses a beer with close friends, all in their 20s, all sharing intimacies. What’s noticeable to me about Camille’s circle of friends is that they’re bi-cultural and interracial. Blue-eyed blond guys are engaged to Asian women, and blue-eyed blonde women are with darkcomplexioned men. They may not have broken every sexual barrier, but they’ve knocked down walls that once divided members of ethnic groups. Camille insists that she wants sex, intimacy and creative work. A recent college graduate, she has a job, but she’s not in a relationship now. She wants, she says, “to be the most attractive woman in the room, so when I denounce a man as sexist, I won’t be dismissed as just another unhappy women’slibber.” Bell might find Camille as protective of her emotions, and as unwilling to be vulnerable, as the dazed and confused women who populate Hard to Get. “I don’t want the men that I like to know that I like them,” Camille tells me. “I’ve pioneered new ways to be rude to guys.” Sonoma State University professor Deborah Kindy, 65, teaches Nursing 480, “Health, Society and Human Sexuality.” In the last decade, 2,000 or so undergraduates have learned, she hopes, “to be comfortable with themselves as innately sexual beings.” Kindy follows in the pioneering footsteps of professor Bernie Goldstein, a showman in the classroom who taught legendary courses for decades about human

sexuality at San Francisco State University and SSU. Her own teaching methods have been informed by the surveys she’s conducted with thousands of students, all of whom sign an agreement that that they’ll respect others and their opinions. On a campus where girls outnumber guys three-to-one, the competition for men is fierce, though women students tend to be more sexually repressed and less sexually adventurous than Bell’s cohort. “A lot of students enter the class naïve about sex,” Kindy tells me. “They come from conservative families, and they’ve been told that they ought to abstain from sex until after their wedding night. Some women insist that they’re virgins, even though they’ve had oral and anal sex with boyfriends.” Kindy’s class serves as a kind of group therapy session in which students make startling discoveries about their sexuality and understand that gender roles aren’t as limited and limiting as parents and teachers tell them. If there’s one single lesson that they learn in Nursing 480, it’s that they can create and recreate their own sexual identities. The college environment is, of course, imperfect. Dorms provide fertile ground for casual sex that leaves participants feeling empty. Rapes on campuses are hushed up all too often. There’s sexual harassment, and, after all these years, still prejudice against students who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or in doubt about their sexual identity. Classes like Kindy’s provide opportunities for undergraduates to learn about real sex and sexuality, and not the ersatz varieties on TV and the internet that Bell finds troubling, if not downright harmful. “TV shows send a message that career comes first and love and marriage come afterwards,” she tells me. “That division of personal life from professional life doesn’t help.” Decades after the advent of women’s liberation, women have indeed come a long way, but books such as Hard to Get suggest that the journey has only just begun.

ontrary to what parents and pundits would hope, college is not just a place to work hard and get good grades. It’s also a great incubator of self-discovery, a brutal but transformative landscape of pitfalls and opportunities, where students learn not just what they are capable of, but what kind of people they want to be. Therefore, there are few shows more suited to a college-level performing arts program (in this case, the Santa Rosa Junior College’s theater arts department) than the 2007 Broadway hit Legally Blonde: The Musical. Based on the 2001 movie, Legally Blonde was crafted for the stage by Laurence O’Keefe (Batboy: The Musical), Nell Benjamin and Heather Hatch. Wrapping up a strong season for

Stage

SRJC, director Leslie McCauley helms a spirited student cast and crew who make up in enthusiasm and charm (and an undeniable identification with the themes of the play) what they might lack in polish, vocal precision and stage experience. The result is a show that carries a whopping load of emotional weight, while remaining as sweet and fluffy as pink popcorn. Fashion major Elle Woods (Sigrid Forsythe) is about to graduate from UCLA when she learns that her boyfriend, Warner (Blake Chandler), is not planning to propose (as she and her Delta Nu sorority sisters anticipate in the bouncy, showopening number “Omigod You Guys”). Having decided she’s not “serious enough,” Warner dumps her, heading out for both Harvard Law School and a new girlfriend, the dour, über-serious Vivienne (Kayla Kearney). Determined to reclaim Warner’s love, Elle charms the Harvard admissions board into accepting her unorthodox application, involving a marching band and a team of cheerleaders. Once at Harvard, Elle suffers a harsh series of setbacks and challenges. Ostracized for her perky attitude, aggressively pink wardrobe and apparent lack of interest in the law, Elle’s only supporters are Paulette (Audrey Tatum), the unlucky-in-love manicurist at a local beauty shop, and Emmett (Zachary Hasbany), the gangly assistant of the school’s most notorious and judgmental law teacher, Professor Callahan (Christopher Gonzalez). Working hard against a score that features unmemorable, hardto-sing songs and a script that becomes increasingly unfocused as the story progresses, the cast of SRJC’s Legally Blonde pulls it off anyway, conjuring a heartfelt breath-mint of a show. In the end, Elle learns a major life lesson: that being true to oneself, quirks and all, never goes out of style. Rating (out of 5): ++++

ROLL IT Bob Wilkins, ‘the strangest thing

about this show on 2,’ smoking as ever.

That Boy Wilkins

New doc on KTVU’s ‘Creature Features’ BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

B

ack in the day, “Ghoulardi,” as Cleveland DJ and television host Ernie Anderson was known, injected local color into WJW-TV’s latenight horror film broadcasts— underrated gems and psilocybinmushroom-studded cow patties alike. Soon, late-night television of the ’60s was laden with caped sarcasmmeisters kibitzing their way through monster movies. As seen in the documentary Watch Horror Films, Keep America Strong by Petaluma filmmaker Tom Wyrsch, San Francisco’s beloved Bob Wilkins was in that tradition, but not of it. Wilkins was a Midwestern former steel worker who rode KTVU’s waves into the memories of thousands of northern Californians as a cigarsmoking lounger in a JFK-style

rocking chair. The host of Creature Features was a cinema scholar in a time when no internet was available to prod lazy memories. Wilkins was honest (“I felt I had to be honest,” he said) about the limitations of his wares, the unbelievable previews for which are part of Watch Horror Films. A famous incident, reported from two sides in the documentary, involves the time Wilkins advised his audience to actually avoid the movie he was about to show, Attack of the Mushroom People. Indeed, he read the TV Guide on the air to suggest alternative viewing on other channels. Watch Horror Films conveys the independence of KTVU in those days. I can remember when the nude scenes in Nicolas Roeg’s Walkabout weren’t trimmed, despite a 4pm broadcast. Once, Creature Features famously broadcast a lesbian vampire film called Twins of Evil in which an actress bares her, um, twins of evil. The FCC never came thundering down; the “community standards” defense worked at the time, and since San Francisco was the community in question, well . . . Wilkins retired in 1979. Longtime fan and Chronicle scribe John Stanley took over for the next six years; the intrepid critic and researcher brought in an assortment of junketing stars. Creature Features’ guests include Ernie Fosselius, creator of the first and best Star Wars parody, Hardware Wars, as well as Anthony Daniels, the man who wore C-3PO’s metal carapace. Both the ever-terrific George Takei and later Star Trek-ian Whoopi Goldberg were guests. And there’s a story here about Christopher Lee you don’t want to have spoiled. The documentary is as thrifty as Wilkins’ sets; talking heads onscreen make for nodding heads in the audience. Yet it celebrates a show well worth honoring, evergreen in the memories of Bay Area B-movie buffs. ‘Watch Horror Films, Keep America Strong’ screens with ‘Hardware Wars’ as filmmaker Wyrsch, host Stanley and guest Fosselius appear in person on Sunday, April 28, at the Rafael Film Center. 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. 4:15pm. $12. 415.454.1222.

referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buena Vista Social Club of Algiersâ&#x20AC;? (Aug. 11); and a new partnership with Napa Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Festival del Sole brings violinist Sarah Chang and JeanYves Thibaudet with the Russian National Orchestra (July 16). San Francisco Symphony and Santa Rosa Symphony concerts abound as well; tickets go on sale to the general public on May 13 at www.gmc.sonoma.edu. When the back wall of the main hall is opened, sound shoots out like a giant subwoofer onto a terraced lawn into an acoustic space uninterrupted by reďŹ&#x201A;ective surfaces. Looking up at the stars on a warm summer evening last fall, it felt like Alison Krauss and her band mates were singing from the sky, like the universe gave a concert just for us. The daytime season opener with the Santa Rosa Symphony brought a much more casual scene; on the lawn, children danced, sang, spilled cracker crumbs everywhere and basically were allowed to be kids at a professional symphony concert. The stuffy atmosphere that can accompany a performance melted away. It was OK to cough, sneeze, take a picture, strike up a conversation, lay down, snooze, sunbathe, eat, drink, do yoga, walk around, eat hot dogs; in short, it was ďŹ ne music made accessible to all. Other outdoor fare this year includes the Healdsburg Jazz Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing concert. After a two-week festival dedicated to jazz bass legend Charlie Haden that includes Charles Lloyd, Jason Moran, Haden, Lee Konitz, Ravi Coltrane, Bill Frisell, Marcus Shelby, Fred Hersch, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and many others, the festival ďŹ nale on June 9 features Sweet Honey in the Rock and Azar Lawrence outdoors at Rodney Strong Vineyards. The natural mini-amphitheater at Rodney Strong makes for good acoustics, and the vineyard setting means youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to bring visiting friends and relatives. As for the sun? This year, the festival is selling special â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shaded Chairsâ&#x20AC;? tickets. See www. healdsburgjazzfestival.org for more. The Huichica Festival, the Rodney Strong Concert Series, the Kate Wolf Festival, the Rivertown Revival . . . this concert season, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get outside.

Maori Roots Katchafire, wailing from down under From the South Pacific islands to the California mainland, Katchafire’s seven-member reggae-dub sound blazes the Pacific Rim with organic island spirit. The all-Maori band, started as a Wailers tribute group, has grown to bridging Jamaican roots culture with the native soul of Aotearoa (New Zealand). A family affair born in a Hamilton, New Zealand, garage, Katchafire caught fire when Grenville Bell nurtured the talents of his two sons, Logan and Jordan, for what has become one of the biggest reggae bands from down under. Katchafire’s latest album, On the Road Again, went platinum with a mix of “generational rub”—early one-drop rhythms, R&B soul and deep synth notes. The singularity comes with ancestral Aotearoa horns, congas and the hazy vocals of Jawaiian love ballads. Part of the California Roots Festival “Road to May” concert series, a precursor to the three-day reggae music and live art festival in Monterey County next month, Friday’s show is a mini-festival in itself, featuring three full bands and Sonoma County locals Casa Rasta on the decks. Katchafire play with Ukiah’s Top Shelf and Maui’s Maoli, backed by Casa Rasta, on Friday, April 26, at the Mystic Theatre. 21 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8:30pm. $24. 707.765.2121.—Jacquelynne Ocaña

FREE WILL BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of April 24

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) How we react to the sound of the wind gives clues to our temperament, said philosopher Theodor W. Adorno. The unhappy person thinks of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fragility of his house and suffers from shallow sleep and violent dreams.â&#x20AC;? But for the happy person, the wind sings â&#x20AC;&#x153;the song of protectedness: its furious howling concedes that it has power over him no longer.â&#x20AC;? I bring this up to illustrate a point about your life. There will be a strong and vivid inďŹ&#x201A;uence coming your way that is like the wind as described by Adorno. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neither bad nor good in itself, but may seem like one or the other depending on the state of mind you choose to cultivate. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20)

In 1921, Russian composer Sergei ProkoďŹ evâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;born under the sign of the Bullâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;premiered his opera The Love for Three Oranges in the United States. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how The New York Times felt about it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a few, but only a very few, passages that bear recognizable kinship with what has hitherto been considered music.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible, Taurus, that you will get a similar reaction when you debut your new approach or endeavor. And that may disturb you. But I think it would be a good omen, a sign that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking a brave risk as you try something innovative and unfamiliar.

GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m passionate about doing whatever I can to make the world a better place. How boring and sad it would be if I only thought of satisfying my personal needs. But I also remember what Aldous Huxley said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your own self.â&#x20AC;? Even if you have mad skills at healing and ďŹ xing everyone whose life you touch, Gemini, Huxleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reminder is good for you to honor right now. The place thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in most pressing need of transmutationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re most likely to be successfulâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is within you. Now hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the trick ending: to the degree that you regenerate yourself, you will improve everyone around you. Your inner work will be contagious. CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22) Thomas Jefferson almost pulled off a miracle in 1784. America was a young country. There were only 13 states and a few unorganized territories. As a representative to the Continental Congress, Jefferson proposed an ordinance that would have prohibited slavery in those territories, including what would later become Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama. By just one vote, alas, the provision failed to pass. Can you imagine what the United States would have been like if slavery had been partly extinguished decades before the Civil War? The moral of the story, Cancerian, is that at certain pregnant moments, small shifts can have big consequences. The astrological omens suggest your life will be proof of that in the coming weeks.

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) I believe you will crawl or scramble or glide to the top of some mountain in the next four weeks. What mountain do you want it to be? A crumbly molehill? A pile of cheap but useful gravel? A lofty peak where you can see for miles and miles? I urge you to decide soon on which of the possibilities you will choose. Then afďŹ rm your intention to call on all your resources, allies and powers to help you make the ascent. This is a chance for serious expansion, Leo. Unleash your soulful ambitions. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22)

Have you ever seen a moonbow? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a rainbow but is created by the reďŹ&#x201A;ected light of the moon instead of the sun. For this phenomenon to occur, the sky must be dark. The moon has to be full and setting in the west, near the horizon, and rain must be falling. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rare event. All the conditions have to be just right. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more likely than usual that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spot one of these exceptional beauties in the coming days. Your afďŹ nity for curious wonders and mysterious marvels of all kinds will be at a peak. I suspect you will have a knack for being exactly where you need to be in order to experience them.

LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) Lonesome George was about a hundred years old when he died last year. He was the last remaining member of a giant tortoise species that had lived on Ecuadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pinta

Island for thousands of years. But scientists say his kind is not necessarily extinct forever. They believe that by cross-breeding tortoises of other related species, they could recreate a 100 percent pure version of Lonesome Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s species. I suspect, Libra, that you may be able to pull off a metaphorically comparable resurrectionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially if you initiate the effort in the coming weeks.

SCORPIO (October 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;November 21)

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imagine ourselves near the snowy summit of Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mount Rainier. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in an unusual kind of cave. Volcanic steam rises from cracks in the rocky ďŹ&#x201A;oor. Above us is a roof made of ice. As we stand between the heat and the chill, we ďŹ nd the temperature quite cozy. The extremes collaborate to produce a happy medium. Can you accomplish something in your life thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in this cave? Metaphorically, I mean? I think you can.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot accept the world as it is,â&#x20AC;? remarked Belgian author Hugo Claus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each day we should wake up foaming at the mouth from the injustice of things.â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t subscribe to the idea that each day should begin like this. On some mornings we should rise and greet the world singing songs of praise for the great fortune of being alive. But I do think Clausâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach is precisely right on certain occasionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like now, for you Sagittarians. The time is ripe to tap into your reservoir of righteous anger. Fight to right the wrongs that disturb you the most.

CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your story begins the moment Eros enters you,â&#x20AC;? says Anne Carson in her book Eros the Bittersweet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That incursion is the biggest risk of your life. How you handle it is an index of the quality, wisdom and decorum of the things inside of you. As you handle it, you come into contact with what is inside of you, in a sudden and startling way. You perceive what you are, what you lack, what you could be.â&#x20AC;? I want to extend Carsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dramatic hypothesis. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to propose that eros enters you again and again in the course of your life, and your story resets each time. How will you handle it when it makes its next incursion? Get ready, because here it comes. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18) â&#x20AC;&#x153;I prefer by far warmth and softness to mere brilliancy and coldness,â&#x20AC;? wrote Anais Nin in one of her early diaries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people remind me of sharp dazzling diamonds. Valuable but lifeless and loveless. Others, of the simplest ďŹ eld ďŹ&#x201A;owers, with hearts full of dew and with all the tints of celestial beauty reďŹ&#x201A;ected in their modest petals.â&#x20AC;? I suspect that even if you normally love cold brilliancy, Aquarius, you will need an abundance of warmth and softness in the coming days. To attract the best possible embodiments of this inďŹ&#x201A;uence, get clear about your favorite forms of it. Be picky! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept sloppy sentimentality. PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20)

Ludwig Wittgenstein was a genius. His last book, which inďŹ&#x201A;uenced many different ďŹ elds of thought, is regarded as one of the most important philosophy tomes of the 20th century. And yet he was a big fan of foolishness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people did not sometimes do silly things,â&#x20AC;? he observed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing intelligent would ever get done.â&#x20AC;? Another time he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness, but come down into the green valleys of silliness.â&#x20AC;? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more of his opinions: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid of talking nonsense! But you must pay attention to your nonsense.â&#x20AC;? I hope thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough evidence to support my advice, Pisces, which is that now is a good time for you to get both smarter and wiser. And a good way to do that is to play and play and play some more.
