Rhapsodies My Neighbor, Myself The reward of reaching out to strangers BY MOLLY WOLF

I

am one of those people who tends to attract crazy folks on the street. I make the mistake of making eye contact and being present as they babble about the voices in their head. I am still interested in my fellow humans after all these years of disappointment. On Tuesday, as I was about to enter a grocery store, a woman came toward me burdened by her grocery bags and a cane. She was unsteady on her feet, well-dressed and skinny, like me, pinched face looking down, shoulders hunched forward as if she carried the weight of the world. I asked her if I could help her with her groceries, and at first, she said no. I asked her if she was sure and she began to cry, still walking forward on legs that barely carried her. I joined her, and we moved toward her car. I listened as we walked and her pain, her grief, her trauma and her pasted-together self came spilling out. I had read about her family’s suffering in the Bohemian. Her pain was and is very real. Her story needs airing because it is her painful reality, tangible and the heart a family’s grief, not just the facts. I breathed and I listened and I offered a present, loving few moments of time. It did not take that much of me to offer compassion, understanding, presence or kindness to a stranger in my path. She needed someone, just someone in her community to listen. Just that. Listen and witness and offer kindness. A human connection without iPads, iPhones, emails, texts or any other distractions. Simple and loving. If we’re here together, in this moment, in this community and we cannot just look up and get off the damn phone, why are we even bothering to leave the house? I am honored to have crossed paths with someone for whom I could offer and receive the truth of human suffering with genuine concern. My neighbor, myself. Get off the phone, look up, and offer help. You’ll be amazed how good that feels. Molly Wolf is a dog walker, runner, writer and seeker living in Santa Rosa. Open Mic is a weekly op/ed feature in the Bohemian. We welcome your contribution.

Carrillo Should Resign

Tale of Two Chesters

Let me be among the first to call for Efren Carrillo’s immediate resignation as Fifth District Supervisor. Speaking for many of us in West County, we have had it. Carrillo no longer represents us. The last time he exhibited antisocial behavior like this all we got from him was a stone wall. Now his pal Erik Koenigshofer says that Carrillo is really a nice guy and just has a “drinking problem.” Well, he may have a drinking problem, but a drinking problem does not excuse his behavior, especially from a person in county government. I call for a coalition of county civic groups to come together to nominate a replacement for Carrillo as soon as possible.

I really enjoyed this article, especially for the attention to the situation of California artists (“Gone West,” July 3). There’s a typo in the caption for one of the photos—that’s not Sonoma County’s wonderful author and garlicgrower Chester Aaron (who is also worthy of a profile in your paper) but more likely the person you are quoting in the article, Chester Arnold.

PIETER S. MYERS Occidental

Women Targeted While I certainly share the upset and outrage being expressed over the verdict in the Zimmerman trial, I am puzzled by the silence over similar crimes that occur daily across the country. Thousands of victims are stalked, raped and murdered, targeted as belonging to an oppressed class in our culture. Yes, I’m taking about women. Violence against women is such an ingrained aspect of American life that it goes almost unnoticed, yet it goes on day after day. Women who resist and kill their attackers can be convicted and sent to prison. As a man who’s enjoyed an unconscious sense of entitlement over women from birth, I’m struggling to wake up to this bias and begin to resist the omnipresent messages to objectify and target women: “sexy” advertising, misogyny in “entertainment” and, of course, pornography. Where’s the outrage against this lethal profiling?

Subtle Metal Boo Radley’s House delivers uncompromised attack on this album (“North Bay Noise,” July 10). As an ex–sound engineer for a few record labels, I find Eye to I to be one of the best pieces of work I’ve heard in a long time. Although it may not find its way into the mind of the masses due to its highly intelligent metal infrastructure, I encourage those with an appreciation for deviation from the norm to give this album a solid listen. It has so many time changes, explosive dynamics and subtle nuances, all seamlessly executed, that listeners will find themselves wanting to study each “chapter.”

STEVE Via online

BottleRock Disaster Wow, this has to be one for the business books as a freeway pile up of the worst business practices in recent memory (“Empty Bottle,” July 10). Why on Earth would any business (much less practically all of the vendors) give credit to a concert promoter on the first year out? Why would a concert promoter allow a primary source of revenue to be managed by a contractor? Lord help any investor suckers lurking nearby.

Bohemian Wins AAN Award At the annual convention on July 13 of the Association of Alternative Newsmedia in Miami, Fla., photographer Sara Sanger was awarded a third-place award for her work in the Bohemian throughout the calendar year 2012. AAN is comprised of 142 newspapers nationwide. This is the eighth national award that the Bohemian has received in the past five years. In April, the Bohemian won two CNPA awards from the California Newspaper Publisher’s Association. To Sara, we triumphantly raise a tall can of Modelo and a pair of the best gardening shears money can buy.

Whatzit got k now b ut w ha at’ t s up with than n “b lah b lah b lah”? W ha atzit t g ott to do with beer and all? I mean, really, dude, whatever… There I was, sweaty and strung out, holed up for the third day in a cheap hotel with a genuine Juanita on my lap. On the lamb was more than a way of life. It had a smell, and it stunk like hops. Juanita shrieked something about an “Escoba grande con queso en mota para la pelicula…”, but I wasn’t listening. For now I was focused on the undercover Ale clenched between jaunita’s knees and also how good it would taste later while she cooled out in the soon to be locked shed out back of Palmdale where the turkey farmers still run. Ale is thicker than even blood. I already knew this and I also knew that the dicks were not far behind and that ever at their distance they could smell everything and would never let up on me. Flip the dicks. Here come the bastards… Here they come… Orion, the great hunter of the heavens, moved stealthily through the night sky with two faithful partners at his heel; Canis Mjoris and Canis Minorus- a binary system completing the trio. Known by many names, the bigger of the two dog was Sirius (the very name meaning ‘scorching’ in long unspoken Latin) Being as it is the brightest star in the seeable heavens, it seared an x-ray hole into the inkyblackness- a sight both refreshing and penetrating; heady and invigoration. As the two hikers lying under the early spring nighttime sky saw the drama of the eternal hunt unfold before them and with Sirius on point above and a Sirius in a cup below- they too became eternal, falling through the heavens, tumbling paws over heels on the long night’s journey into summer… “And you’re full of ragwater bitters and blue ruin and you’re spilling out over the edge to anyone who’ll listen.” These are the words of our favorite Sonoma songsmith. They describe a cocktail of romantic despair wrapped in red flock wall paper and marinated in a soulful yearning. On the rocks. With a twist. We’ve all been there. The beer in this bottle, however, is none of that. So maybe it’s a crappy name for the beer but we liked it, and so whatever. It’s always better to be happy than right. Mostly, anyways. Whatever. Forget it. Never mind...Well, well, well. The head brewer stood opposite the massive brewing vessels that were his to command. His mind raced through the possibilities. What is the temperature of the malt in the grist case overhead? Was the hot liquor tank up to temp? Would the ambient temperature affect the final mash temperature? Should he compensate for the delta temp by running a little higher mash-in temperature? A single degree in either direction would have a life changing effect on both the brewer and the brewee. The beer could be too sweet if a degree high, or too mild and dry if a niggling degree too low. The character of the future beer that this batch would be hung in the balance. The brewer drew a bead on the temp-probe, the mash tun waited, and the world held its breath...We at the Lagunitas Brewing Co. hope you enjoy this genuinely handmade ale. A lot hard work and enthusiasm go into every aspect of brewing this Mondo Ultra Mega Super Premium Ale. From building the brewery itself to putting the cap on each and every bottle, virtually every step was done by hand. Thanks for your trust, and as always: Think Globally, Drink Locally!...Like Adam and Eve, Issac and Ishmael, Mao and confuscious, Good and Evil, Day and Night, Hittites and Visigoths, John and Lorena, or Groucho and Moe, Ales and Lagers are as different as can be. Still we must love each for who they are, separately but equally, with liberty, and justice for all. Cheers!According to Mr. Zappa; “without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.”“Music has always shown how people think and feel, according to John Tasker Howard.

THE ORIGINAL 1 % A detail from the original 1980 Bohemian Grove protest flyer keeps the message simple.

Bohemia’s Gate The Bohemian Grove Action Network hijacked by conspiracy theorists again BY LEILANI CLARK

O

h, what a difference one word makes. For more than 30 years, the Bohemian Grove Action Network has disseminated information about the summer meeting of the political and financial elite of the world. They’ve also held protests at the gates of the yearly

gathering, with a hiatus here and there. But the name has been hijacked, says longtime activist Mary Moore. A group that called themselves the Bohemian Grove Action and Resistance Network was at the gates of the Bohemian Grove this year, handing out flyers on so-called smart grids and Google technology. Sean Ackley, a Republican from Brentwood who helped the original protestors set

up a Facebook page, led the small gathering. “I had reservations from the start because [Ackley] did not hide the fact that he is an Alex Jones supporter,” Moore says, referring to the conspiracy theorist who snuck into the Grove (with Moore’s help, “against my better judgment,” she admits) in 2000 and came out with stories of satanic ritual and human sacrifice. Ackley ended up making

Paper THE

himself an official administrator of the Facebook page, adding “Resistance” to the name and taking over the operations. Moore says that while “anyone has the right to protest,” they do not have the right to “appropriate the name we’ve had for 33 years,” and thus confuse the public. The Bohemian Grove Action Network has enlisted the help of a local attorney to help them trademark the name; they can then send a cease-and-desist letter to the Ackley-led group. “I hate the idea that we have to do this kind of establishment move,” says Moore of the trademarking and legal process. On July 12, the Facebook page name was changed to “Resist the Grove—Bohemian Grove Action and Resistance,” but BGAN’s Steve Schillinger says it’s still too similar. An emergency meeting on July 11 resulted in a collective decision to refocus Bohemian Grove Action Network efforts on research and education rather than direct action, such as protesting outside the gates of Bohemian Grove, for now. For example, two members have started to look at how many high-level energy officials involved with fracking belong to the Bohemian Club. Moore, 78, started the Bohemian Grove Action Network in 1980, and in recent years has expressed repeated desires to step down as the face of the protests, urging younger people to take over. “We’re going to be focusing more on education and research than on the annual protests, because we don’t want to fight with these Tea Party people,” Moore says, recalling actions by Doug Millar, another conspiracy theorist, to confuse the proceedings in 2012. At this point, the Facebook page issue has become “almost irrelevant,” Moore says, with the group refocusing on its longstanding goal of exposing the nature of the Bohemian Club and its inner workings as a backroom setting for elite collusion, rather than closing the place down. “No matter what the issue is that you are concerned with, somebody is making a profit from it,” Moore says, “and there’s a good chance that they are in the Bohemian Club.”

fren Carrillo was sworn in as a county supervisor at the bright young age of 27, a promising political career ahead of him, smiling and shaking hands, never imagining that he would ever be arrested in his underwear and socks after trying to break into a woman’s bedroom at 3:40 in the morning.

Leaders cheered him. Colleagues liked him. Supporters funded him—boy, did they fund him. All of them repeated the same phrases: “rising star,� “career politician,� “promising future,� never imagining that he would ever be arrested in his underwear

and socks after trying to break into a woman’s bedroom at 3:40 in the morning. There was the incident in San Diego last year, where Carrillo knocked a guy unconscious outside a Too Short show. Carrillo evaded the press, answering no calls from reporters. Instead, he answered calls from his political mentor Doug Bosco, who knows scandal all too well. Carrillo left for Russia, with plans for damage control, and certainly not with plans for being arrested in his underwear and socks after trying to break into a woman’s bedroom at 3:40 in the morning. The excuse came: Carrillo was defending women from harassment. The charges were dropped. The man knocked unconscious, Jovan Will, would

conspicuously not tell his side of the story to the press, and Carrillo came out a hero instead of a bully. Surely, he would never be arrested in his underwear and socks after trying to break into a woman’s bedroom at 3:40 in the morning. But these are the facts: early Saturday morning, Carrillo was arrested in his underwear and socks after trying to break into a woman’s bedroom at 3:40 in the morning. Police say they believe his intent was sexual assault. There is a spin machine at work, even as you read these words, trying to obfuscate the events of that night. Carrillo’s lawyer insists the supervisor meant no harm, because he later introduced himself to the woman at her door as a neighbor, before running away. Carrillo, predictably, cited a problem with alcohol and checked into rehab. Doug Bosco went so far as to call it a tragedy for Carrillo himself, saying, in the Press Democrat, “I think the people who are close to Efren and like and respect him are focusing more on the tragedy that it is for him to have made this mistake.� Doug Bosco, who is a principal owner in the Press Democrat and who had raised a substantial amount of campaign funds for Carrillo, might want to consider what it is like to be a woman sleeping while a man rips the screen, opens the window and starts rustling the blinds at 3:40 in the morning, as police say Carrillo did. He might advise Carrillo, this time around, to apologize to his victim instead of his supporters. Instead, Carrillo issued a virtually empty emailed statement: “I realize that my behavior was embarrassing.� Maybe 27 was too young for Carrillo to get into politics. Maybe one’s 20s are supposed to be a little more fun than sitting on committees and going to water agency meetings. Maybe Carrillo grew up too fast, put on a game face and bottled up too much of that youth. Maybe it kept bottled up for so long that it fermented, and mutated, and next thing he knew, he was being arrested in his underwear and socks after trying to break into a woman’s bedroom at 3:40 in the morning.

INVITATION TO INDULGE Chalkboard chef Shane McAnelly, working wonders with the old Cyrus kitchen.

Butter Heaven Healdsburg’s Chalkboard specializes in small plates and milk fat, hurrah! BY GRETCHEN GILES

A

nd so it was revealed to us that a new restaurant had opened in Healdsburg, but Leon and I had not yet dined there. Skipping such niceties as reservations, Leon donned his new silk and linen togs, I dusted off my “good” flip-flops, and into the car we went, headed north for an early meal.

Our destination was Chalkboard, the latest incarnation of the space that once reverently held Cyrus, in the Hotel Les Mars. Cyrus, where the staff was hushed and the tables clothed. Cyrus, where the kitchen staff did gently spy on guests as their meals progressed, the better to prepare the next course. Cyrus, where there would never be a dirt-filled plant on a bare four-top or a community table or a merciless fruit fly . . . To the very good Chalkboard where milk fat regularly moistens

cheeks and lips and tongues and laps. Where we learned that gigli is not only a terrible Ben Affleck/J. Lo vehicle, but also a lily-shaped pasta that this kitchen likes to brighten with saffron. Chalkboard, where gnudi is not a spangled suit worn onstage by such deceased chaps as country star Porter Wagoner, but rather ravioli that’s lost its coat. Where radishes are stuffed with homemade butter, baby carrots are to be dredged through a wonderful concoction known as “leek dip,” and where

dark rye bread crumbs are crushed into “soil.” Where puny dietary vows die softly and the steak comes wrapped with bacon. To Chalkboard, where they tried to seat the reservationless in the back, in a corner by the kitchen. But the room was empty at 5pm on a Thursday evening, and we wanted to be by the bright summer windows and sip a Hendrick’s and tonic ($10), which you can damn well bet we did. Listening to a recording of this meal—which I did so that you never, ever think of doing this yourself (the pop of your lips greased and floppy, your awful timbre escalating with wine . . . )—I hear our sober delight as we settle in by the windows, order our drinks and immediately request a tray of crab tater tots ($9) and that veggie plate ($8) which would reveal the butter-stuffed and the leek-dipped nestled amid rye soil with a side of duck-fat-fried frites. (I shudder to learn that I evidently chanted “butter-stuffed-radishes” in a cheerleader’s rah, but a cheerleader would never have eaten them.) Chalkboard is a small-plate place with nothing priced over $17, as chef Shane McAnelly’s invitation to indulge. We didn’t need the invite, ordering the fresh corn ($7) immediately upon spying it as a special. Roasted on the cob, the kernels are sheared off and married in a bowl with cilantro, feta and a chipotle crema that is washed with a squeeze of roasted lime. The server invited us to mix it up. Mix it we did. We gobbled three plates before even deciding upon our main meal or wine. (The tater tots—formed into cubes, fried and topped with crème fraîche, chives and fresh crab lumps—were greedily consumed but needn’t be mentioned again.) We duly perused, learning that many of the veggies come from the restaurant’s dedicated three-acre patch situated on the Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards. Perhaps it was the Hendrick’s, but Leon ) 14

promptly lost all geographic bearings, wondering aloud how they could serve fresh seafood so far inland. While the man has actually heard tales of air travel, a different type fortunately distracted him, as a single, manic Drosophila chose our human forms for repeated personal inspection. Doing his best Obama, Leon felled him in a swoop. Talking with my mouth grossly smacking full, I settled upon the wild nettle and ricotta gnudi ($12), followed by the plate of buttermilk-fried quail ($15) that Leon had rejected as being too “tedious” to eat. I chose a glass of the ballsy (yes, it appears that I later amused myself by using that descriptor to the poor server) Chalk Hill Chardonnay ($12), while Leon opted for the gigli with crab and zucchini ($15) and the local king salmon ($15) with a glass of Fruilano ($8) to start. Momentarily not eating, we surveyed the room, opened up and simplified since Cyrus, replete with the de rigueur community table, handsome wood chairs and small potted succulents on each table. More guests arrived, the servers were swift and graceful, the place quickly hummed. My gnudi was vibrantly green, larded with maitake mushrooms, and swimming in a sauce that could only be described as butter. Truffle butter, all the better. Leon’s gigli were crocus-yellow and ethereal with a slight heat from

calabrian chiles. The wine, as has been noted, was ballsy. I am pleased to report that we discussed abstract painting and the death of print journalism but soon moved shamefully on to kitchen products and why that friend we don’t like didn’t invite us to her party. With our next course came two glasses of Bluxome Street Pinot Noir ($12) recommended by our server and just right for my emphatically nontedious quail, dressed as it was with nasturtium greens, and Leon’s perfectly prepared three ounces of salmon. (He no longer wondered how it had made its way from the sea.) We mellowed, we flushed, my voice growing louder in inverse proportion to the excellence of my jokes. Of course we’d like dessert! Good God, man. We soon spooned up the creamy cold goodness of a salted balsamic vinegar and caramel gelato ($6). Over two hours had passed, and we knew Chalkboard. We forgave the friend we don’t like, we settled upon the kitchen items to buy, we didn’t say another word about painting or papers. We took a long walk around the evening-stained streets and into the car we went, headed south for an early night home. We’ll soon go north to that spot again. Chalkboard, 29 North St., Healdsburg. Open daily for dinner; lunch, Friday– Sunday. 707.473.8030.

SMALL BITES

Pop-Up Veggies At first, I was drawn to the Handlebar Farm stand for the beautiful, fresh-looking summer veggies— carrots, tomatoes, green beans—displayed in smart-looking fashion. But I return each week for the low prices and consistent high quality of the no-spray lettuce and other greens produced on the Sebastopol-based farm, run by Emily Mendell and her husband, Ian Healy. The couple started the farm in 2012, a process documented on their lively Handlebar Farm blog; the young couple recently extended their reach from farmers markets to a pop-up veggie stand in Santa Rosa’s Courthouse Square. “There aren’t really any places in downtown to find fresh produce,” Healy says. “We wanted to create a place where people could buy vegetables after they get off of work.” Located on the northeast side of the square, the cart is chock-full of the farm’s bounty and provides a nice alternative to picking up a slice of pizza or a hamburger after work. Handlebar Farm can be found at the West End Farmers Market on Sundays from 10am to 20pm, at the Forestville Farmers Market on Tuesdays from 3pm to 7pm, and at their Downtown Santa Rosa Veggie Cart every Thursday from 2:30pm to 6:30pm. —Leilani Clark

What follows is a three-point turn on a blind, two-lane road, with a single thought in your head: “This wine had better be worth the insurance deductible.” But with Cabernet this good, it is. 3234 Old Sonoma Road, Napa. By appointment. 707.253.7153.

SL Cellars & Muscardini Cellars

Learn Cal-Ital at the red schoolhouse—yes, this is for the test BY JAMES KNIGHT

T

he lure that brought me shambling back into this familiar old Kenwood wine shack was the big banner that all but shouts “Champagne!” You can see it from a mile away. I don’t mean the sign; I mean the un-flippin’-believably informative lecture that I now feel impelled to deliver about how one mustn’t call sparkling wine “champagne” that doesn’t originate from Champagne, France, because of the history, terroir and international law and this, that and the other—unless it’s Korbel, in which case, pop that California Champagne and drown some domestic Brie on French bread with it.

One explanation of how SL Cellars avoids the ire of the Brussels enforcers is that these wine and spirits veterans simply imported some champers from Dizy, France. It rests on a shelf; ergo, here’s Champagne on hand (the resourceful founder and namesake of Simon Levi Company, an immigrant who founded a wholesale mercantile empire in 19th-century Southern California, might have been proud). Another explanation is, who cares? Certainly not the mostly young fans of NV Framboise Sparkling Wine ($24), who will find its sweet, foamy palate and aroma an easy graduation from raspberry Crystal Geyser. The NV Almondine Pour La Vie ($24) could be the perfect foil for an almond Danish. Also made by Charmat method, not méthode champenoise—which is also now absolut verboten to say, mon frère—the Grand Cuvée ($24) is somewhat yeasty, dignified and comparatively dry. The latest tenant to share Simon Levi’s flophouse for itinerant vintners—following Smothers Brothers, Tandem and many others— Michael Muscardini Cellars complements his landlord’s sparklers with super-Tuscan-style reds, and the soft yet zippy, planter-boxfloral 2012 Sole Del Mattino Sonoma Valley Pinot Grigio ($24). The 2010 Monte Rosso Sangiovese ($36) is upfront with spicy red cherry fruit, while the 2010 Monte Rosso Vineyard Zinfandel ($42) plays it typical at first whiff, then tips off the palate to this vineyard’s “grand cru” status with layers of alluring pomegranate, olallieberry and dark liqueur flavors. There’s barrel tasting of the young 2012 Syrah just to the right of the bar, which is circled by the old model train. The joint is sparkling clean, packed with novelty art and Krave jerky nibbles. The staff is friendly, there are Baby Bells and Pinot Grigio in the cold case, and there’s also live music on Fridays. For unexplained reasons, a gumball machine dispenses used corks—a feature that no one but some kind of Euro-existentialist would find disturbing. SL Cellars, 9380 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood.

A Sense of Balance Among beloved state parks like Annadel, Jack London and Armstrong Woods, Sugarloaf—remote and beautiful—is Sonoma County’s forgotten gem BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

as that a little motorcycle whizzing past my head? The loud buzz seems like it’s coming from inside my eardrum, but instinctively I pause and turn my head to follow the sound, where I’m half-expecting to see

the Great Gazoo in his little flying saucer giving me a raspberry. Luckily for my companions and me, there’s no little alien playing mind tricks, just a swath of large dragonflies, all different colors. Seemingly coming from nowhere, dozens of these stranger-than-fiction

creatures are now hovering, darting and fornicating all around us. Surrounded by manzanita trees, wildflowers, blue sky and fragrant bay trees and sage bushes, the serenity of the scene fills me with awe. My eyes get big and a little watery as the splendor of nature overwhelms my senses up here

long with fellow volunteer docent Dave Chalk, Bill Meyers started leading hikes through the park 13 years ago. They now run Bill and Dave’s Hikes, which leads trips in Sugarloaf, San Francisco, Yosemite, Kunde Vineyards and other locations. The hikes became so popular that one year, for a hike on the Fourth of July, 212 hikers showed up. This year, the number was a more reasonable 80 or so, and the $50 per-person fee went straight to funding operations of the park, making the annual hike one of the park’s biggest fundraisers. And it needs the support. The 3,900-acre park closed in 2012 when California announced it couldn’t afford to keep it and 69 other state parks open. Public upheaval spread about shuttering Santa Rosa’s Annadel and Sonoma’s Jack London parks, but immense popularity and historical value saved those two. Less noise was made for Sugarloaf Ridge, however, which is something of a forgotten middle child of the “big three.” Still, this stunning park has a large support base of visitors, and within half a year, volunteers had the park open and running as smoothly as it ever did under state control. Ultimately, 65 of the 70 state parks slated for closure were kept open or reopened, but Sugarloaf’s story is particularly heartwarming. Team Sugarloaf is a consortium of five nonprofit groups that have banded together to run the park. The Sonoma Ecology Center is the lead group, negotiating with the state and overseeing general park management; the Valley of the

Moon Observatory Association operates the Robert Ferguson Observatory; United Camps, Conferences and Retreats operates the campground facilities; Valley of the Moon Natural History Association operates the visitor’s center and helps with volunteers; and the Sonoma County Trails Council maintains the park’s 25 miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. “We all put our strengths together and our ideas together to manage a park,” says Richard Dale, executive director of the Sonoma Ecology Center. It takes about $285,000 annually to keep the park open, almost $50,000 less than it cost the state in 2011. Most of the money comes from campground fees, but Dale says at least $25,000 in fundraising is needed each year to make up the difference. So far, public support has been strong, and the state has been helpful. “They’ve been bending over backwards” to work with Team Sugarloaf,

says Dale, allowing events like docent-led fundraising hikes and a Friday-night summer concert series to take place in the park’s amphitheater. The concerts have drawn around a hundred people to the park each Friday, but the monthly stargazing nights at the Robert Ferguson Observatory routinely see 200 attendees staring at the sky, away from city lights, through one of the three high-powered telescopes at the observatory. One, nicknamed a “lightbucket,” was built by one of the park’s docents almost 20 years ago and uses a 24-inch reflector to gather light and condense it into an eyepiece, which is reached via ladder at the top of the scope. “The bigger the mirror, the more faint the objects you can see,” explains volunteer observatory docent and amateur astronomer Dixon Yeager. The observatory also hosts solar-viewing parties—but not using the lightbucket. “If you looked at the sun through that,” says Yeager, “your head

you have? Sometimes you can get an AT&T signal on some of the trails.”) He’s the go-to guy, always happy to help out. It might seem strange that just one person handles all these duties, but then again, it might also seem strange that our state parks, such natural places of refuge, continually face funding shortfalls, budget cuts and threats of closure. Luckily for Sugarloaf, some dedicated fans are doing something about it.

in Sugarloaf. But when I pick up my feet to move along the trail, the serotonin in my brain turns to lactic acid in my thighs, and I’m pushed off the ethereal plain back to reality. During the 3.5-mile, 1,500-footelevation hike to Bald Mountain in Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, the park can feel like a different world, a thousand miles from everywhere. But it’s just half an hour from Santa Rosa—a little off the beaten path, is all. No wonder it’s sometimes forgotten. “It’s a well-kept secret,” says volunteer docent Bill Myers, leading my trek through heaven and hell. “It’s one of the coolest parks around.” A few days later, I’m tackling rugged terrain and crossing shallow creeks in a trickedout electric golf cart with park manager John Roney, who stops to say hello to each visitor he sees. After passing huge thickets of blackberry, which line the trails with fruit ready to be picked, we come to a stop at an overlook with what appear to be remnants of a brick foundation. Roney explains that this is the former site of the cookhouse for the Sonoma Developmental Center’s campers in the 1940s. Before Sugarloaf became a state park in 1964, it was used by the center for camping, picnicking and scouting. It was originally purchased by the state in 1920 to dam Sonoma Creek as a water supply for Sonoma State Hospital, but after local landowners voiced their opposition, those plans were canceled. It’s plain to see why locals wouldn’t want to change a thing about this place. The serenity of birds calling to each other, wind rustling through the trees and clouds gently flowing overhead makes me want to get out and walk the rest of the way, but the two-mile trip would probably keep Roney away from the visitors center too long. When he’s not in, the gift shop and nature center are closed. There’s also no one else to answer questions like “Which hike should I take?” (“Well, how much energy and time do you have?”) or “Is there cell phone reception in the park?” (“What service do

would catch on ďŹ re. I mean literally, it would catch on ďŹ re.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah,â&#x20AC;? agrees fellow volunteer observatory docent Jim DeManche. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you seen those survival shows where they take a parabolic mirror and put a cup of water [under it] and it boils it? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your brain.â&#x20AC;? The solar viewing, he explains, is done with a 14-inch telescope that can take photos of distant galaxies. It uses a computer program to clean up and ďŹ lter images, allowing viewers to safely see an image of the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface, with sunspots and even solar ďŹ&#x201A;ares sometimes visible. Together with the iconic telescope here in the big white dome, this trio of telescopes and collection of dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers make the observatory a standout of the park system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This [observatory] is most accessible and most active,â&#x20AC;? says DeManche, noting that Santa Rosa Junior College, Sonoma State University and Pepperwood Preserve also have observatories. The observatory is popular, and even more so during a meteor shower. (DeManche points out that there will be a shower during the next public viewing night, on Aug. 10.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing is, this was all done without public funds,â&#x20AC;? says

Yeager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was literally all done by the docent community.â&#x20AC;?

s of now, Team Sugarloaf wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind running the park past its ďŹ ve-year contract with the state. It draws in volunteers and keeps the future of the park separate from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding woes, says Dale. Having the state â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ ndâ&#x20AC;? almost $60 million in missing funds, $20 million of which was designated for state parks, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t encourage public trust. But Dale doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think government shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ďŹ rmly believe the state needs to be the owner of the land, resources, cultural objects,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to have that kind of public trust of ownership.â&#x20AC;? If things keep going as well as they have in Team Sugarloafâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst year, it might become a model for other parks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not hearing about anything else like this,â&#x20AC;? says Dale, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where state parks are closing and people are stepping up.â&#x20AC;? Yeager, who was a docent even before Team Sugarloaf came to be, says the funding crisis has brought a new sense of ownership to the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place is just so much more alive than when the state was running it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible.â&#x20AC;?

Deep Listening

Jazz pianist Noam Lemish returns from Bhutan for album release concert BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

N

oam Lemish was sitting on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor of his unfurnished apartment in Bhutan eating dinner when the text message arrived on his simple, cheap cell phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The king really enjoys listening to your radio show,â&#x20AC;? it read. Needless to say, Lemish was taken aback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It came out of

nowhere,â&#x20AC;? he says today, recalling the news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was quite thrilled.â&#x20AC;? Having started his life and musical career in Israel, continuing in the Bay Area at Sonoma State University and then teaching and performing in Bhutan for a year before moving to Toronto, Lemish has certainly been around in his 31 years. The global traveler shows the same kind of range in his music, and Lemish, a tremendous jazz pianist, is about to release his second album of original compositions

with drummer and SSU music professor George Marsh. But saying Lemish is a jazz pianist is like saying a multifunction Swiss army knife is just a knife. Lemish has credits as an arranger, a composer for ďŹ lm, theater and dance, and a performer in styles ranging from jazz to classical to the eclectic style of the San Francisco Mime Troupe, with whom he toured in 2003. When he was not yet 30 years old, Lemish was asked to teach at the landlocked Himalayan

countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only music school in 2010 (there are now two). After a few months, Lemish had his own radio show playing classical, world and jazz music. The text message about the kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appreciation came from one of the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners, and in the conversations that followed, Lemish was asked to compose a piece for the kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming 30th birthday. Lemishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction, he says today, was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I think of that?â&#x20AC;? The only problem was that after only a few months in the country, Lemish wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intimately familiar with the culture, let alone the native music. And he certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to offend the king. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to make it an homage to Bhutanese culture and share a part of myself,â&#x20AC;? says Lemish. Limiting himself to the ďŹ ve-note pentatonic scale, a staple of Bhutanese music, Lemish awoke each morning and wrote down the ďŹ rst tune that popped into his head every day for two weeks. He used those melodies to sketch a ďŹ ve-movement, 30-minute suite. The result is The Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s King, combining a little Western ďŹ&#x201A;avor with Bhutanese tradition, using four traditional Bhutanese instruments and a recording of monks chanting a mantra for long life. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since rearranged it into a jazzy version, which debuted at the Healdsburg Jazz Festival in 2011.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;W

herever you go in Bhutan, you hear music,â&#x20AC;? says Lemish, sitting at Flying Goat in Santa Rosa and groggily sipping coffee in the morning hours. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early, the caffeine is taking time to work its magic, and particular phrases from Lemish require a minute to chew to reveal their depthâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just like his music. Nightfall, his second album with Marsh, is just the right mix of avant-garde, time-free jazz with structured melody and

form. Some songs feature mallet percussion ostinato punctuated by gong crashes and ominous piano chords at odd intervals, such as “Cosmic Pulse.” Some, like “Cape Town,” are catchy melodies wrapped in drum phrases that feel like a Fred Astaire dance number. Even with music jumping, sidestepping, twirling and sliding around, everything stays together; it’s a dance that is at once choreographed to perfection while improvised on the spot by two minds with one vision. “Waltz for Pamela” is the album’s only song not written by Marsh or Lemish, composed by former SSU jazz professor and bassist Mel Graves. When it’s brought up, Lemish begins rummaging through his backpack. “I went to visit him, a couple months before he passed away,” he says, pulling out a photocopy of a hand-written piece of music. “This was on the piano at his house, and he asked me to play it. It’s stunningly beautiful.” It was also the last piece Graves ever wrote. Lemish and Marsh recorded it in 2009, just months after Graves’ death. Fittingly, the album is dedicated to his memory. The duo began playing together while Lemish was still a student at Sonoma State. Their first album, Yes And, came out in 2008. Nightfall is more mature, structured and polished, even though most of it was recorded four years ago. “Collaborating with George has been a huge blessing and a gift,” says Lemish. “I learn so much playing music with him.” The ability to listen is the mark of a great musician. Listening to this album amplifies that truth. Marsh and Lemish exist musically as ageless beings. When they’re playing together, the only time that exists is the present. “Musical connection has nothing to do with age,” says Lemish. “It has everything to do with the kind of listening and presence a person brings.”

Hijinks explode in wacky â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Servantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY DAVID TEMPLETON

A

nyone addicted to silliness should stay clear of Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ives Park for the next couple of weeks. There, a 260-yearold comedy has landed, packed with pop-culture references (The Wizard of Oz, The Princess Bride), outrageous plot twists (a man dies after falling on a chopstickâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;13 times), and ridiculous, slightly raunchy dialogue (a woman, disguised as a man, asks for money by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ďŹ&#x201A;at bustedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;so to speakâ&#x20AC;?). The 18th-century Italian playwright Carlo Goldoni wrote over 150 plays during his lifetime, the most popular being Servant of Two Masters. Kicking off this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sebastopol Shakespeare Festival is a new version by Thomas Chapman of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Loosely based on the 1928 English translation by Edward Dent, Chapmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach (he also

directs) resembles the more-isless, cram-it-to-the-max, no-laughis-too-cheap comedy of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, Saturday Night Live and, most deďŹ nitely, Monty Pythonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Flying Circus. The convoluted, twisty-turny plot involves a hungry servant named Truffaldino (David Yen, for whom Chapman fashioned the role), who accidentally ends up employed by two different people at once. Unbeknownst to him (and everyone else), his ďŹ rst employer, the presumed-dead aristocrat Federigo Rasponi, is actually Beatrice (Allison Rae Baker), Federigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, in disguise as her dead brother. Truffaldinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other master is the fugitive Florindo (Peter Warden), Beatriceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secret lover, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been wrongly accused of Federigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murder. To raise the money for Florindoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense, Beatrice, in disguise, hopes to claim the dowry promised to her brother by Pantalone (Larry Williams), whose daughter, Clarice (Jessica Wysocky), was engaged to Federigo, but actually wants to marry Silvio (Chris Sword), the son of the quackish Dr. Lombardi (Nancy Prebilich), alarmed to learn that Federigo is no longer dead (cue zombie jokes). Adding spice to the mix is the potentially cannibalistic innkeeper Brighella (Brandon Wilson) and the lovehungry maid Smeraldina (Denise Elia-Yen), with whom Truffaldino is instantly smitten. In Chapmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands, the raucous plot is a mere conveyance for a series of outlandish jokes, bits, inspired wordplay and supremely goofy lines (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like being frightened! It scares me!â&#x20AC;?), with each and every member of the clownish, committed cast pitching their highly physical performances at maximum over-the-topness. Though a tad overlong and a bit overstuffed, this Servant keeps the laughs comingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with plenty of pratfalls, funny faces and snot jokesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;right to the giddy, ridiculous end. Rating (out of 5): ++++ â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Servant of Two Mastersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Thursdays-Sundays, July 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;28, at Ives Park. 154 Jewell Ave., Sebastopol. 7pm. $7-$20. 707.823.0177.

THIS SUMMER’S ‘LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE’.” -Claudia Puig,

“WAY,

WAY WONDERFUL.

A JOYOUS MOVIE , THE BEST ONE I’VE SEEN IN A VERY LONG TIME.” -Joe Morgenstern,

HARD LESSONS Ben Brown, of Santa Rosa’s Phas3, trains with a Muay Thai master in the film.

Lord of the Ring

Training with humility in ‘Win. Lose. Forgive.’ BY LEILANI CLARK

K

nown as “the Art of Eight Limbs,” Muay Thai is an ancient Thai combat sport that’s seen a huge growth in popularity in the United States over the past few years, and a new, locally produced documentary explores one man’s journey to learn the art of the fight.

Directed by Mer Aldao, Win. Lose. Forgive. is produced by Kurt Hoffman, a student of Phas3 Martial Arts owner Ben Brown, whose work to become a Muay Thai trainer, under the tutelage of champion fighter Jongsanan “Woodenman” from the El Niño Mixed Martial Arts Training Center in San Francisco, forms the core of the 27minute documentary. Win. Lose. Forgive. offers a glimpse into the heart of Muay Thai, as much a spiritual discipline as a sport, in which the hands, feet, elbows and knees are used to brutal effect. “Muay Thai is an open art,” Jongsanan says, one in which it’s important to listen first, and “don’t

question-mark yourself at all.” One of the film’s most powerful moments arrives when Brown tells of the first time he trained with Monlit Sitpohdaeng, voted Thailand’s top Muay Thai trainer in 2010, and how excited he was to show off his skills to the master. Instead, Brown receives a swift lesson in humility when Sitpohdaeng parks him in front of a mirror for an hour after pointing out everything he’s doing incorrectly. “Finally, I figured it out,” Brown recounts for camera in his earnest, urgent manner. “Who the hell am I to come in here and show him how good I’ve gotten? I’m gonna come in here and show him how great I am? There’s no great. I don’t know anything.” It’s just one of the many lessons learned in a film loaded with musings on fighting, discipline and the beginner’s mind and life. ‘Win. Lose. Forgive.’ premieres on Saturday, July 20 at Third Street Cinemas. 620 Third St., Santa Rosa. 5:30pm. $5. www.winloseforgive.com.

eith Gerriot walked to the center of the stage, assumed a half-squat, tilted his guitar skyward and let loose on a lightning-fast solo. Artemis, in red leather hot pants and lace, stood up from her chair and mangled her cello’s strings while yelling along. While Alex Kouninos laid down the bass and Matthew Wilson played ukulele, singer Jeremy McCarten drew out a final “Come ahhhn!” with his head tilted back. Behind the kit, Devon Rumrill thundered out a massive drum roll and clobbered the cymbals, bringing the whole thing to a crashing halt. In that glorious finale, who would have believed the band had only been together for 24 hours? Up went the judges scores, all

9s and 10s, and with that, a new champion of the Bohemian’s 24Hour Band Contest was crowned. That was just one of the many high points in the packed Arlene Francis Center last Saturday night, as we carried on last year’s crazy idea—to assemble musicians into random bands with other strangers and force them to write two original songs and learn one cover song in just one day. Each performance was like opening a living, breathing Christmas present. A trombonefueled version of “Psycho Killer.” A Spanish-English hybrid of “Rebel Yell,” complete with hubcap percussion. A “Taxman” singalong. Hell, the energy was so high that at the end of the night, people started breakdancing. Ultimately, the panel of judges—comprising Bill Bowker, Leilani Clark, Heather Irwin, Steve Jaxon and Jacquelynne Ocaña—chose the band cheekily calling themselves Wonder Wench as most worthy of top honors.

Making their success even more special was the fact that McCarten, in hospital scrubs, was called in to work at the emergency room the night before; he’d missed five hours of rehearsal. (The “special circumstances” award, though, goes to bassist Huck Reason, from a different band, whose fiveday-old daughter Nyah Willow watched from the crowd, wrapped in blankets and held by her mother.) Not to be outdone, our ninth annual NorBay Awards conferred plenty of honors throughout the night, too. Your voting made it happen—we had 1,047 preliminary write-in voters, and 3,411 finalist voters! Gold record awards were given, speeches both touching and funny delivered, and our commitment to supporting and cultivating local music was strengthened yet again. The award was especially timely for Lester Chambers, winner in the Blues / R&B category. In accepting the award on behalf of his father, Chambers’ son Dylan explained that Lester had been assaulted onstage by a woman earlier that same day at the Hayward-Russell City Blues Festival after dedicating “People Get Ready” to Trayvon Martin. (Video later released showed Dinalynn Andrews Potter climbing onstage, shoving the 73-year-old Chambers to the ground; she was arrested for battery, and Chambers was taken to the hospital.) “I can’t tell you how proud he’ll be having this,” Dylan said, clutching the award. “He works very, very hard at what he does.” Without further ado, the winners of the 2013 NorBays: BLUES / R&B: Lester Chambers COUNTRY / AMERICANA:

Take the Second Amendment, for example. In E-40â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d turn into something like: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A booliyooni militia of regulatorial necessariness branginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the hurryupness to the security of states in the free box, no locks, frocks or stocks, the righthand trippinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the pop-you-lace scarlet drippinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in armchair armoires shall not, like skirtastic hemslastic, be infringed. Smell me?â&#x20AC;? The king of slang from Vallejo, born Earl Stevens, is now 45. He should be slowing down. Instead, he released five albums last year, filled with dizzying linguistics and hardslapping hooks. Live and onstage, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been rocking the same set list for the last seven years, but not without impeccable style and plenty of humorous touches. (Last time he was in town, his manager got paid in cash, onstage, and openly counted thousands of dollars in front of everybody.) A headlining bill this week also boasts Oakland legend Too $hort, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put out 20 albums and continues to go strong. E-40 and Too $hort appearing onstage together is basically the Bay Area rap game version of Monk and Coltrane at the Five Spot, a rare teaming of two innovators. Or, as 40 might say, bossalinis and fooliyonis get ballinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and sprinklinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Saturday, July 20, at the Phoenix Theater. 201 E.

Festival del Sole: 24-Hour Plays

Life Is a Cabaret Sexy cabaret shows honk and grind in Marin Scouring the internet for a place I can really be myself is a lonely venture. But what’s this? Not one, but two sexy cabaret shows in . . . Marin County? Finally, a place where catcalls and fedoras are not only allowed, but encouraged! It’s my time to shine! Starting this week, Séduction Féroce Deux cabaret comes to George’s in San Rafael on a monthly basis, complete with standup comedy, vaudeville acts, interactive games and, of course, burlesque dancing. Host Jamie DeWolf is the creator of the monthly Oakland variety show Tourettes Without Regrets (and subject of a recent Bohemian cover story); his slam poetry and other talents underscore an approach of holding nothing back. Burlesque is sexy mostly because at least some clothing is kept on, but we’re guessing nothing will be out of bounds. At Sweetwater in Mill Valley, Vaud & the Villains brings a 19-piece 1930s New Orleans orchestra and cabaret show for a one-nightonly performance on July 20. The horn section alone is worth the price of admission, and a full-stage, sexed-up performance is just the icing on top—or is that whipped cream? Séduction Féroce Deux hits the stage Thursday, July 18, at George’s Nightclub, 842 Fourth St., San Rafael. 6pm. $10. 877.568.2726. Vaud & the Villains play Saturday, July 20 at Sweetwater Music Hall, 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 9pm. $22. 415.388.3850.—Nicolas Grizzle

Astrology

BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of July 17

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) The 19th-century Italian composer Gioachino Rossini was a proliďŹ c creator who produced 39 operas. Renowned for his lyrical melodies, he was sometimes referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Italian Mozart.â&#x20AC;? So conďŹ dent was he in his abilities that he bragged he could set a laundry list to music. I trust you will have comparable aplomb in the coming weeks, Aries, since you will be asked to do the equivalent of composing an opera using a laundry list for inspiration. This will be a different challenge than making lemonade out of lemons, but it could be even more fun and interesting. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20) Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence? Or is its more vivid hue just an optical illusion caused by your inability to see the situation objectively? Judging from my analysis of your current astrological omens, I suspect that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not deluded. The grass really is greener. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to note the reason why this is true, which is that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more manure over on the other side of the fence. So your next question becomes: Are you willing to put up with more crap in order to get the beneďŹ ts of the greener grass? GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) You know the voice in your head thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a sneaky bastard? The voice that sometimes feeds you questionable advice and unreliable theories? Well, I suspect that this voice might be extra active in the coming week. But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the weird thing: It might actually have a sound idea or two for you to consider acting on. For once, its counsel may be based on accurate intuition. So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completely lower your guard, Gemini. Maintain a high degree of discernment toward the sneaky bastardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pronouncements. But also be willing to consider the possibility that this generator of so much mischief could at least temporarily be a source of wisdom. CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22)

We keep milliondollar works of art in well-guarded museums. Paintings created hundreds of years ago are treated with reverence and protected as if they were magical treasures. Meanwhile, beautiful creatures that took nature eons to produce donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the same care. At least 5,000 animal and plant species are going extinct every year, in large part due to human activities. Among the recently lost works of art are the Madeiran large white butterďŹ&#x201A;y, West African black rhinoceros, Formosan clouded leopard, golden toad and Tecopa pupďŹ sh. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asking you to not allow a similar discrepancy in your own life, Cancerian. The astrological omens say that now is a perfect moment to intensify your love for the natural world. I urge you to meditate on how crucial it is to nurture your interconnectedness with all of life, not just the civilized part.

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) Hurry up, please. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time. No more wafďŹ&#x201A;ing or procrastinating. You really need to ďŹ nish up the old business that has dragged on too long. You really should come to deďŹ nitive decisions about ambiguous situations, even if they show no sign of resolution. As for those nagging questions that have yielded no useful answers, I suggest you replace them with different questions. And how about those connections that have been draining your energy? Reevaluate whether they are worth trying to ďŹ x. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) â&#x20AC;&#x153;This morning I walked to the place where the street-cleaners dump the rubbish,â&#x20AC;? wrote painter Vincent van Gogh in one his letters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My God, it was beautiful.â&#x20AC;? Was he being ironic or sarcastic? Not at all. He was sincere. As an artist, he had trained himself to be intrigued by scenes that other people dismissed as ugly or irrelevant. His sense of wonder was fully awake. He could ďŹ nd meaning and even enchantment anywhere. Your next assignment, Virgoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;should you choose to accept itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is to experiment with seeing the world as van Gogh did. LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22)

I believe you will undergo a kind of graduation in the next four weeks, Libra. Graduation from what? Maybe from a life lesson youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been studying for a while or from an institution that has given you all it can. Perhaps you will climax your involvement with a situation that has made

big demands on you. I suspect that during this time of completion you will have major mixed feelings, ranging from sadness that a chapter of your story is coming to an end to profound gratiďŹ cation at how much you have grown during this chapter.

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

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your favorite sin, Scorpio? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about the mischievous vice or rebel tendency or excessive behavior that has taught you a lot. It may be the case that now and then this transgressive departure from normalcy has had redeeming value, and has even generated some interesting fun. Perhaps it puts you in touch with a magic that generates important changes, even if it also exacts a toll on you. Whatever your â&#x20AC;&#x153;favorite sinâ&#x20AC;? is, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing that you need to develop a more conscious and mature relationship with it. The time has come for it to evolve.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) The Sagittarian writer and artist William Blake (1757â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1827) made drawings of many eminent people who had died before he was born. Julius Caesar was the subject of one of his portraits. Others included Dante, Shakespeare and Moses. How did Blake manage to capture their likenesses in such great detail? He said their spirits visited him in the form of apparitions. Really? I suppose thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to note that he had a robust and exquisite imagination. I suspect that in the coming weeks you, too, will have an exceptional ability to visualize things in your mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye. Maybe not with the gaudy skill of Blake, but potent nevertheless. What would be the best use of this magic power? CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) How close do you really want to be to the people you care about? I invite you to think about this with unsentimental candor. Do you prefer there to be some distance between you? Are you secretly glad thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a buffer zone that prevents you from being too profoundly engaged? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad thing. It might be correct for who you are right now. I merely want to suggest that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for you to know the exact nature of your need for intimacy. If you ďŹ nd that you actually do want to be closer, spend the next four weeks making that happen. Ask your precious allies to collaborate with you in going deeper. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18)

I love your big, energetic thoughts. I enjoy watching as your wild intuitive leaps lead you to understandings that mere logic could never produce. I have beneďŹ ted many times from the Aquarian tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to see angles no one else can discern. In the immediate future, though, I hope you will be a specialist in analyzing the details and mastering mundane mysteries. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be rooting for you to think small and be precise. Can you manage that? I expect thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a sweet reward. You will generate good fortune for yourself by being practical, sensible and earthy.

PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20)

Is it a river or a creek? Is it a mountain or a hill? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for you to decide questions like theseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;preferably on the basis of the actual evidence rather than on wishful thinking. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying that the river is better than the creek or that the mountain is better than the hill. I simply want you to know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to be clear about which it is. The same principle applies to other experiences youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon have. Is the catalytic person youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with a temporary friend or a loyal ally? Is the creation youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nurturing just a healthy diversion or is it potentially a pivotal element in transforming your relationship with yourself? Is the love thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blooming a transient pleasure or a powerful upgrade thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth working on with all your ingenuity?
