Laird Dangles While Assembly Wrangles Former Assemblymember ?d]cAV^gY was all set to swoop in and wrest Sen. 6WZaBVaYdcVYdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Santa Mariaâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based seat from Republican clutches in a June election, but that was before state legislators monkeyed it all up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in wait-and-observe mode,â&#x20AC;? he says now. Maldonado was supposed to become our new lieutenant governor two weeks ago, freeing up his 15th District Senate seat, but after the Senate overwhelmingly confirmed him, the Assembly got its partisan panties in a twist and Maldo came up four votes short of the 41 needed. After some gubernatorial chest-beating, including threats to override the Assembly on state constitutional grounds and even take them to court, <dk#HX]lVgoZcZ\\Zg backed down and resubmitted Maldonadoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name last week, resetting the 90-day clock on the confirmation process. While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a chance the seat will open up, pushing back the timeline has thrown Lairdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans off. Should Maldonado achieve a confirmation in the first two months of the 90 days, the election would take place in August. If it happens in the final 30 days, the election would get kicked to Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two very different scenarios, and neither resembling a tidy June vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was fairly committed to running under that original schedule,â&#x20AC;? Laird says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not thrilled about running in an August election.â&#x20AC;? The former head of the Assembly budget committee notes that he would benefit from a high turnout vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And June and November are high turnouts. August is an election when everybody is on vacation, nobody is paying attention.â&#x20AC;? One wonders what the strong Republican base at the southern end of the district would make of an openly gay Santa Cruz liberal to begin with. However, not only does the majority of Lairdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former Assembly district lie within the Senate districtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;meaning, he says, that about 300,000 people from Los Gatos to Carmel have his backâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also done some homework. In a poll he conducted in which interviewees were asked who they were likely to vote for, Laird or likely Republican opponent and Assembly minority leader HVb7aV`ZhaZZ (R-San Luis Obispo), Laird said he just clinched it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came up 2 percent ahead, which is within the margin of error,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would be an incredibly close race for either side. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no sure thing.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more on the line than just political pride. If he decides to run, Laird will have to move to reside within the borders of the artfully drawn 15th district mapâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just a few miles, he says, from his current Westside abode. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jessica Lussenhop

La Bahia Hits Snag It was all smiles from 9dcLZWWZg of the Build a Better La Bahia Coalition this week after Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling by Santa Cruz County Superior Court ?jY\ZEVja7jgY^X`. Burdick said 7VggnHlZchdc7j^aYZg and the X^ind[HVciV8gjo didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider enough alternatives when planning to demolish the historic LV7V]^V6eVgibZcih on Beach Street and build a four-star hotel in its place, validating the coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal claim that they should have tried harder to incorporate parts of the historic, albeit decaying, building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a victory for people who still believe in the [Environmental Impact Report] process,â&#x20AC;? said Webber, whose house sits directly behind the La Bahia Apartments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that the city sees this as an opportunity to look at other ideas and to build a better project. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see something that is more compatible with the neighborhood.â&#x20AC;? The decision, which is tentative and will be finalized on March 19, muddies the picture for the future of the oceanfront property. Most city leaders had hoped that after voting to approve the 125-room design last April, the eight-year fight over the crumbling property would soon be over. The judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling will have no procedural impact when the all-important California Coastal Commission meets to consider the project. That meeting, which had been scheduled for March 10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;12 in Santa Cruz, now looks unlikely to discuss La Bahia, as the hearing will be dominated by proposed plans to build a $4 million bicycle trail through the 68-acre Arana Gulch. If the ruling stands, Barry Swenson will have to draft new plans and the city will have to hold a fresh round of public hearings. Both entities could also simply walk away from the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an outcome thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perhaps that much more plausible after Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Curtis Cartier

Fog Falling Off Love it (on a still Saturday morning) or hate it (while racing up Highway 17 late for work), fog is a crucial part of life in Central California. Now a new study on coastal fog by researchers at UC-Berkeley has shown a significant decrease in the iconic Northern California weather phenomenon. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potentially very bad news for redwoods, which get an estimated 30 to 40 percent of their moisture from fog. 9g#?VbZh6#?d]chidcZ, one of the principal authors, says that in studying the climate of Northern California and its impact on redwood forests, researchers found that local cloud ceiling height reports from airports in Monterey and Arcata painted an interesting picture of their own.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turns out thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing record of fog every hour over the last 60 years,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like fog is a third more common before 1925 than in the recent decade.â&#x20AC;? That means places like Santa Cruz emerge from fog an average of three hours earlier in the day than they did 100 years ago. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear at this point whether the decline in foggy weather is simply a regional circulation change or if it is yet another ominous symptom of human impact on the environment. Regardless, the redwoods rely on a raised humidity level in the forest canopy in order to stay hydrated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fog helps them to conserve water throughout the dry summer season,â&#x20AC;? says Johnstone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a subject for some concern, but not for alarm or panic at this point.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jessica Lussenhop

Through the Cellar Door Say the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;cellar door.â&#x20AC;? Do your lips pulse with pleasure? Does your tongue swell with pride? Are you choking on your swollen lips and tongue? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re to believe a large bloc of linguists and writers, then you should be, according to an article in The New York Times Magazine. The piece by Grant Barrett traces the history of the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;cellar doorâ&#x20AC;? and how it became known as the most beautifully harmonious pairing of words in the English language. The first reference to the dynamic duo is reported to be from the 1903 novel Gee-Boy by Cyrus Lauron, a passage of which reads: â&#x20AC;&#x153;He even grew to like sounds unassociated with their meaning, and once made a list of the words he loved most, as doubloon, squadron, thatch, fanfare. . . . He was laughed at by a friend, but logic was his as well as sentiment; an Italian savant maintained that the most beautiful combination of English sounds was cellar-door.â&#x20AC;? Later, in the 1950s, Lord of the Rings author and respected linguist J.R.R. Tolkien remarked on the wordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; intrinsic loveliness in a speech. From then on, Barrett writes, the phrase has popped up in literature with great frequency. For all the swooning by semanticists, it was pure coincidence that led GVcYVaa<gV]b of Bonny Doon Vineyard to name his sleek new Westside restaurant the Cellar Door CafĂŠ. In fact, though he thinks the words have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;wonderful cadence,â&#x20AC;? Grahm says, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until he read the Times piece that he realized the phrase was so celebrated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The name, I guess, turned out to be an accident,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not until I saw the article did it even register. What I was going for is creating an intimate portal to a private place. Sometimes I think the name is too generic, but it does have a wonderful sound to it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Curtis Cartier

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes A cyclistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feat of derring-do becomes a lesson in human kindness



N JUNE 2006, 25-year-old Dominic Gill set out from northern Alaska on a tandem bike dubbed Achilles and headed south. Way south. His goal: to reach the southern tip of South America in 18 months, picking up random strangers along the way. Armed with bear spray, a video camera and a questionable sense of sanity, Gill rolled out of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, and into the bleak tundra with a small British f lag f luttering encouragingly behind him. He had just one rule: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never asked anyone to get off !â&#x20AC;? Along the 18,000-mile long journey, he was chased out of town by a man with a machete, pedaled through snow storms and deserts, encountered landslides and scorpion-strewn beaches and picked up 270 â&#x20AC;&#x153;stokersâ&#x20AC;? who mounted Achillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; open back seat to help him push. Generous volunteers, since Achilles and its trailer of provisions tipped the scales at 220 pounds. Their contribution made a deep impression on Gill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew this challenge would be tough. I knew I would see incredible places. I knew I would experience fear, sadness, loneliness and sometimes delirious happiness,â&#x20AC;? says Gill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect was to have my faith in humanity so massively

reinforced over two years of trusting in people.â&#x20AC;? The record of his journey is his documentary, Take A Seat, which won the Special Jury Award at the BANFF Mountain Festival 2009. The film will show in Santa Cruz this weekend when the BANFF Mountain Film Festival rolls into town. Born and raised in England, the self-proclaimed adventurer, climber and videographer dreamed up this human power journey after realizing his responsible nine-to-five desk job as an environmental consultant was sucking the life out of him. Tired of working with large corporations that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested in environmental improvement if it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save them money, and in possession of degrees in biology and environmental studies that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being put to use, Gill left the world of business in search of something more meaningful. Drawn by the sprawling expanse of the American continents, he combined the three things he lovedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;adventure, video and physical challengesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;into the adventure of a lifetime: a filmed journey down the entire western latitude of the Americas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This idea was conceived always with filming in mind. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a fool to pass up an opportunity to document not only the places but the people I encountered while I rolled south,â&#x20AC;? he says. ¨ "

Ed Stobart of Ginger Productions, a documentary film producer, liked Gillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea but asked him to add a twist to make it â&#x20AC;&#x153;crazy enoughâ&#x20AC;? to entertain viewers: do it on a tandem bike. Gill accepted. As expected, the spare seat on Achilles added a dimension of unpredictable possibilityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one that would alter his itinerary completely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After an initial plan of 18 months, I soon realized that rushing south was a waste of an opportunity to get to know people and places,â&#x20AC;? says Gill. He scrapped any sort of strict cycling regimen and slowed his pace to savor the scenery and the rich company of new friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a world where there is so much fear and you are encouraged not to even get involved with your neighbors, it was life-affirming,â&#x20AC;? he says. From its initial timetable of 18 months, the trip swelled to 26 months and became a completely different kind of journey.

Stoked Who were the lucky (or unlucky) 270 who took a seat? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Curious city dwellers who invited

me to stay, tourists wanting to go anywhere, anyhow with a cowboy hat and a few bags of herb, or a Peruvian villager welcoming an alternative to the overcrowded and unreliable rural bus service,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In South America, kids would jump on whenever the hell they wanted.â&#x20AC;? A number of people found him online before they found him on the roadside, like Jules Kresko, a flight attendant from Colorado who overheard some people chatting about Gill in a bike shop. She rode with him for six weeks. Yet two people on a tandem can be a hard lesson in patience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as they get a sore ass they start moving around and it makes for really hard pedaling,â&#x20AC;? he says. There were only a few stokers he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get along with, and in such cases he found ways to trick his own systemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not directly asking them to get off but using â&#x20AC;&#x153;hen-pecking commentsâ&#x20AC;? to inspire their fold. The female-to-male ratio of guest riders was 60-to-40. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess something about tandems is particularly attractive to women,â&#x20AC;? Gill muses. Add a pair of tight bike shorts and a charming British accent


A/<B/1@CH1=; february 24-march 3, 2010 1=D3@AB=@G 

to the machine and the mystery dissolves. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all fun and companionship. Gill pedaled about 50 percent of the miles alone, enduring long stretches of loneliness. Like the day of his 26th birthday, when he crashed Achilles in the middle of nowhere and later realized his wallet was missing. Or the freezing nights he spent in his tent waiting out the snowstorms in southern Chile, or the endless expanses of highaltitude desert in Peru. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like a scene out of a Dali painting,â&#x20AC;? he says of the landscape 15,000 feet above sea level, where night temperatures plunged to minus 13 degrees. Some of these moments are documented with raw honesty in Take A Seat, but his journal offered the real asylum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Writing kept me sane,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was constant.â&#x20AC;?

Border Bound Gill rolled down the Northern California coast in October 2006, recording this in his blog: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through valleys of vineyards to the Californian coast, where the sea had been shrouded with a billowing blanket of cloud. Through giant Redwoods, along darkened forest corridors in which the air is guarded by trees and remains silent and still. Above the roaring waves of the Pacific, on hillsides void of anything but dry grass and turkey vultures circling on thermals in the cloudless sky. Through small communities with wooden shingled walls and weather beaten fences. And then on, over the Goldengate [sic] Bridge, glowing in the last of the sunlight that the dusk had offered up.â&#x20AC;? He picked up his first bona fide surfer in Santa Cruz, a young man named Jared whom he found skipping class. Jared appears in Take A Seat. The empty saddle created a kind of social experiment. Although he found a healthy supply of friends in California, Gill apologetically admits to registering a sort of phoniness, what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;too much money and not enough brain, and a lot of attitude,â&#x20AC;? which intensified the further south he got. He was also getting nervous as he pedaled through Southern California. Five thousand miles of warnings about banditos, pickpockets and murderers waiting for him in Mexico left Gill cycling toward the border with his fight or flight instinct fully engaged. He crossed over into Tijuana with vivid scenarios of being robbed flashing in his brain. What he found was a far cry from the worst he had expected: some new friends and a place to sleep.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marco Kelly sold tacos from his stand and his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;loncheriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; round the corner. He spoke English, French and Spanish perfectly and provided me with more than a soft landing in Mexico,â&#x20AC;? says Gill. What started with tacos and friendly conversation turned to shelter and company for Gillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first night south of the border. As the blog says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He instructed his incredibly able cook Esmaralda to feed me with delicious tacos, and there, in fading light, on a busy street, sitting on a stool next to a filthy but functional mechanics shop, a love affair started. Not with Esmaralda, but with tacos. I love them more than life itself. Simplicity. Satisfaction. Perfection in a moist tortilla.â&#x20AC;?

Southern Hospitality As Gill speaks of these first days discovering Latin Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the new smells, the colors, the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he has a glazed look in his eyes. Latin America surprised him on many levels. Although he was received â&#x20AC;&#x153;incredibly wellâ&#x20AC;? in the States, the social landscape of South America positively overflowed with warmth, hospitality and cariĂąo, or caring affection, he says. The contrast between North and South America made an impression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a direct correlation between how wealthy people were and how hospitable they wereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a negative correlation,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Wealthier people] have a harder time trusting people, and more to lose by inviting a stranger into their house.â&#x20AC;? In Latin America he was invited to family celebrations, offered homes and yards and even a schoolhouse to sleep in. One of the most destitute areas he passed through was Pisco, Peru, months after it was shaken by a devastating earthquake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were areas that smelt of death, bodies still under the rubble and people living in tents,â&#x20AC;? says Gill. But it was there he remembers a local soft drink truck stopping on the road to hand him a Coke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in love with so many places. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much because of how a place looked. I could go through a country that was completely average. I spent three days in Honduras, and on the second day a family took me in and treated me like one of their own.â&#x20AC;? Such generous hospitality also meant eating what the locals ate. With a family in Ecuador, Gill helped to slaughter guinea pigs, a delicacy reserved for celebrations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After which the lady of the house painstakingly cleaned the ¨ ' 4SabWdOZ:W\Sc^¨ $

The Other Olympics Banff Mountain Film Festival serves up white-knuckle footage of extreme sports 0G1C@B7A1/@B73@





HE OLYMPIC sport of curling involves two teams of players carefully sliding large stones down an icy lane while â&#x20AC;&#x153;sweepersâ&#x20AC;? use brooms to polish the rocksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gradual paths toward a target. There will be no curling shown at the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Any activityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Olympic or otherwiseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that graces the screen at this sports and culture movie fest will have to clock in pretty high on the adrenaline meter. Now in its 34th year, the touring festival will hit 285 cities and towns worldwide. In Santa Cruz, Banff will feature 12 films shown over two nights at the Rio Theatre. After Krankedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Revolve opens the show Friday night with 11 minutes of

mountain bike gyrations, Japanese director Masaki Sekiguchi presents his three-minute film Deep/Shinsetsu, like snowfall itself: pure, clean and wordless. With no voiceovers, sound effects or interviews, only a somber acoustic ballad playing softly in the background, skiers take on a wraithlike quality as they plunge through a seemingly endless ocean of deep, soft white. Next, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a childhood adventure worth bragging about in Finding Farley. Filmmakers Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison chart a course across the Great White North using locales that Canadian author Farley Mowat brought to life in famous nature tales like Never Cry Wolf. With their 2-year-old son Zev and spunky dog Willow, the family set out on a quest to meet Mowat


A/<B/1@CH1=; february 24-march 3, 2010 1=D3@AB=@G 

himself in Nova Scotia. The travelogue captures the beauty and scope of Canada as well as the personal drama that accompanies a nomadic household. The quirky MedeoZ brings back the high-octane action. In this film, a photographer tries to take a single photo of six different mountain sports: skiing, snowboarding, mountaineering, paragliding, speed riding and BASEjumping. Pulling off the feat wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy, however, and director/protagonist Guillaume Broust has to marshal not only timing but egos as the six extreme disciplines come together behind one lens. The cultural side of the festival flexes its muscles in the next film as director Will Parrinello presents Mustangâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Journey of Transformation. The movie is set in the kingdom of Mustang, a 780-square-mile hunk of Himalayan pastureland located in northern Nepal. A secret kingdom that has long shunned Westerners, it fosters what many consider a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pureâ&#x20AC;? form of Tibetan culture. Now, under steadily rising poverty, the ornate 15th century monasteries for which the kingdom is known are crumbling from neglect. Parrinello travels to the isolated land and documents the struggle to save the architectural and spiritual heritage with awe-inspiring shots of grand vistas and intimate moments, including an extended interview with the Dalai Lama. Closing Friday night, First Ascent: Alone on the Wall tells the story of a young, possibly psychotic, man named Alex Honnold. Honnold lives in a van. Traveling from rock climb to rock climb, the fearless 24-year-old sacrifices home cooking and hygiene for his stony relationship with sheer mountain walls. His holy grail: to climb Yosemite National Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legendary face, Half Dome, with no ropes and nothing to save him should he lose his grip. Honnold says he climbs his best without ropes. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have toâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one slip and all that will be left of our hero is a smudge at the bottom of the mountain and a scary story climbers tell their children. On Saturday, Revolution One introduces viewers to the exciting world of off-road unicycling, then ramps up the drama as four friends survive rock falls, freezing limbs and each other during 20 days on a rock wall in Azazel. The film documents the quartet as they attempt to chart a new route up the

Trango Pulpit Tower, a nearly 20,000foot cliff in Pakistan that holds mythic status among the locals. The action jumps continents next, to the Americas for Take A Seat (see page 13) and back across the Atlantic when Rush Sturgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Africa Revolutions Tour shows what kind of trouble a group of kayakers can get into in Uganda and Madagascar. In many cases the crew of river rats represent the first lunatics to ride the crocodile- and wasp-infested rivers in kayaks. The white-knuckle action is undercut by group companion Rita Riewerts and the Sun Catchers Project, which gives simple, solarpowered ovens to rural villagers to use for cooking and sanitizing water. Santa Cruz native Chris Sharma got his start climbing the plywood wall at Pacific Edge Climbing Gym on Bronson Street. These days heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on to bigger and badder walls, but none perhaps is more taxing than Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mount Clark and its 500-foot overhanging monster, dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;unclimbableâ&#x20AC;? by everyone who has tried to scale it. In First Ascent: Impossible Climb, Sharma is out to prove otherwise and spends days in the desert in â&#x20AC;&#x153;monastic devotionâ&#x20AC;? as he battles the stone until only one remains. Finally, ending this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Banff offerings on a bit of a ridiculous note, The Ultimate Skiing Showdown looks to calm audiencesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; frayed nerves with a little comedy. Set to the Neil Cicierega song â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny,â&#x20AC;? which discusses a fight between Batman and Godzilla, David McMahonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-minute goof pays both homage and insult to the sport of cross-countyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ahem, Nordicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; skiing. While the silly song plays, a group of trick-happy skiers bother, surprise and generally act the fool in front of a group of less talented, but seemingly reasonable, group of skiers. The winter Olympics may have introduced Americans to some odd sports. But until there are gold medals given out for the best judged BASEjump or the fastest climbing route up Half Dome, the Banff Mountain Film Festival will be there to fill in the blanks. THE BANFF MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL screens Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, Feb. 26â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27, at 7pm at the Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz, 831.423.8209.

1=D3@AB=@Gj16/<53A intestines with a knitting needle,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. Whether it was crickets or cow stomach in Mexico, sheepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-head soup in Peru or days of nothing but stale bread and sardines in the Bolivian dessert, Gill survived on whatever opportunity offered him. When he could, though, he would stock up on mayonnaise and pasta, the concoction he says tasted â&#x20AC;&#x153;like coming home to my favorite meal.â&#x20AC;? The most challenging element of his trip began to take on a new form. Saying goodbye to that kind of friendship and hospitality produced an emotional exhaustion that brought him close to quitting the expedition on more than one occasion. It was a feeling he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get used to.

A Story to Tell In August 2008, Dominic rolled into the icy city of Ushuaia in Patagoniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire), named for the cooking fires seen burning on the beaches by Magellan and his crew five centuries ago. It was the end of an incredible journey, but the joy he had anticipated was absent. Instead, an emptiness filled him where every day there had been new people and places to meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here (South America), I am different. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m almost blonde and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a story to tell. But when I go home, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just going to be me. Walking down the street . . . without a bicycle,â&#x20AC;? Gill had told the camera in a moment of reflection. A year and a half later, more than 200 hours of film footage, an extensive journal and scores of new friends have enabled him to bring part of that story with him. Two years after the adventure ended, Dominic Gill is pinching pennies, but he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet succumbed to the nineto-five grind. He has, however, returned to the world of business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve turned what I loved into my work . . . which was the goal, for good or for bad,â&#x20AC;? he says. His book, a compilation of the image-rich prose of his journal and blogs, will be published in May of this year. And Achilles? Presently, sitting in his auntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, reconditioned and ready for a book tour around England.

TAKE A SEAT screens Saturday, Feb. 27, at 7pm as part of the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Festival runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, Feb. 26â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27 at the Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz County Bank Presents


January 19 - April 2, 2010 Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative celebrates its 25th show! Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Friend encompasses thirteen area artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; portrayals of the playful nature of dogs. This show is an artistic sequel to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unleashed,â&#x20AC;? a tribute to the Year of the Dog in 2007.

C9C:3:3</B7=< IN WHAT is being described as the most unlikely comeback in music history, the ukulele has returned. Long considered a kitschy instrument from a bygone era, the wee instrument of the Islands is now inspiring players the world over to strum the chords of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;ukulele revolution.â&#x20AC;? In Mighty Uke, filmmakers Tony Coleman and Margaret Meagher set out to discover why so many people from so many different cultures are picking up the uke, and they emerge with an entertaining glimpse into this oft-misunderstood â&#x20AC;&#x153;instrument of the peopleâ&#x20AC;? that features musicians and historians from around the world, including plenty of Santa Cruz â&#x20AC;&#x153;uke-erati.â&#x20AC;? The nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festivities also include musical sets by Ukulele Dick and â&#x20AC;&#x153;ukulele superstarâ&#x20AC;? James Hill, plus a meeting of the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz. (Cat Johnson)

On display at all Santa Cruz County Bank offices. For locations visit


MIGHTY UKE screens Thursday, Feb. 25, at 6:30pm at the Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. Tickets are $8 at the door and on Ticketweb. 831.423.8209.

03<<G/<28==< (1993) Mary Stuart Masterson used to be in movies! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly all I remember from this pivotal Johnny Depp flick, which along with Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eating Gilbert Grape (from the same year) proved to everyone that he could be more than the 21 Jump Street guy or a freaky scissorsnapping Robert Smith fetish doll. My favorite part is when he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame about raisins,â&#x20AC;? since he was in the Lemonheadsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; video for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Shame About Rayâ&#x20AC;? around the same time. How come they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get Evan Dando to do something funny and cool like in Reality Bites?

1=>=CB (R; 110 min.) Kevin Smith doing a movie about cops somehow seems every bit as wrong as Ice T playing a cop on TV, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty wrong. This is the first movie Smith didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t write himself, although I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better or worse. In any case, it has Bruce Willis as a New York cop trying to retrieve a baseball card with partner Tracy Morgan. (Opens Fri at 41st Ave, Riverside Twin, Scotts Valley AND Green Valley.) (SP) B631@/H73A (R; 101 min.) Made for $275,00 in 1973, George Romeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Crazies

had no right to be anywhere near as good as it was. But it hit the perfect paranoia pitch for the era, featuring government troops in shocking white hazmat suits invading a small town to â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean upâ&#x20AC;? the mess that it made when it let an army virus infect a small town. The basic idea of â&#x20AC;&#x153;undead by infectionâ&#x20AC;? was the second big idea Romero would contribute to the zombie movie; it took longer to catch on but now is one of the most popular genre staples. Think the people behind this remake can do better with $12 million? Not bloody likely. (Opens Fri at Riverfront Twin and Green Valley Cinema.) (SP)

enough! (Opens Fri at the Nickelodeon.) (SP) D3@B75= (1958) Sometimes you just wake up to how freaky something is, like when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the supermarket one day and the Policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every Breath You Takeâ&#x20AC;? comes on, and you suddenly get a chill down your spine. Hitchcock fans sometimes get that with Vertigo, and for pretty much the same reason. Both Stingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;love songâ&#x20AC;? and Hitchcockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;art filmâ&#x20AC;? are tributes to sick obsession and stalker behavior. In fact, after enough viewings, Vertigo starts to seem even creepier than Psycho, though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not nearly as morbid and

in-your-face about it. At least Anthony Perkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Norman Bates is a tragic figure whose pathology is tackled head on. Jimmy Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scottie Ferguson gets a happy ending, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re glad! Written by Alec Coppel and Samuel Taylor, but crafted by Hitchcock to represent perhaps the purest and most personal artistic vision of his career, Vertigo is the rare mystery whose allure and mystique have only grown over the course of half a century and millions of collective viewings.

A/<B/1@CH1=; february 24-march 3, 2010 47:; 

1@/HG63/@B(R; 119 min.) Crazy Heart gives Jeff Bridges a belly-baring role, with his slit-eyed country singer Bad Blake as a kind of Bad Lebowski, a morose sweet-talking satyr drinking his way to the grave. On tour in his ancient 1978 Chevy Suburban, he meets a former Oklahoma newspaper reporter, Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal). What truly concerns Jean is the influence this charismatic wreck of a man will be on her young son. Robert Duvall, who co-produced, plays a clean and sober bar owner in Houston who is also Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentor. Ultimately, it may be that Bridges is more fun to watch as a drunkardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; his Bad has a hostile, coolly funny mean streak that goes away when he gets dry and sensitive. (RvB) 23/@8=6< (PG-13;

108 min.) Dear John is based on Nicholas Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; epistle romance between a big, shy lug of a Green Beret named John Tyree (Channing Tatum) and Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried), a well-off college girl who lives by the beach in South Carolina. She is a good girl who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smoke and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep around. Despite the good breeding, upon the first kiss with Tatum, she wraps her legs around him like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a brass stripper pole. Tyree begs Savannah to wait for her while his tour of duty ends. Then Sept. 11 strikes: a choice between his country and Amanda Seyfried. The Forever War is cornstarch to hold this batter togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the movie shuns female curves and goes full

porno on the fuselages of cargo planes instead. Director Lasse HallstrĂśm does a few things neatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; a matching shot between a fountain of brass shell casings and tumbling of coins at the mint. (RvB) /<32C1/B7=<

(PG-13; 95 min.) Lone Scherfigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s British comingof-age film ends with a marathon session of tea brewing, but it has its good points. The look is coolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;1960ish England may be more interesting than the full-blown and overexposed later â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s. Twickenham-raised Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is studying for Oxford when she gets picked up by David (Peter Sarsgaard), a slightly older rotter; his slightly cruel eyes and flat smile forecast trouble to come. Until then, Jenny gets to see London high life and nightclubs, and voyages to Paris. Smelling class, and wanting to make their hard-working daughter happy, Jennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents (Cara Seymour, Alfred Molina) relax the leash. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the young girl learns how David makes his money without working days. Mulligan is charming, the meet-cute is deft and Olivia Williams bears all the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spine as a deliberately drabbed-down English teacher. Nick Hornbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s screenplay, from Lynn Barberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memoir, might have meant he had input on the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Swinging London soundtrack. Singer Beth Rowley steals the show as the breathy canary at one nightspot. (RvB) 47A6B/<9(123 min.) A stunning, small-camera exploration of a romance between an adult (Michael Fassbender) and a 15-year-old girl (Katie Jarvis) staged in a no-hope housing project in Essex, England. Director Andrea Arnold is a fiendishly persuasive director, and she makes you see things from Miaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view. The film is the furthest thing from a slumming expedition; we can see past Essexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rubbish heaps, junkyards and tired-looking houses into something wildâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly at the plotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climax at the Thames estuary, where the land

ends as abruptly as if it had been chewed away by a steam shovel. The finale is where this little film gets big: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the end of a Romantic novel when the elements are brought in to witness the emotional states of the characters on a windy fen or the banks of churning water. Arnold observes the raw hedonism and willfulness that makes a poor life bearable. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare when a director who is so sensitive, who has such a sure eye and ear, can understand the bliss of a hard party. (RvB) B636C@B:=193@

(R; 138 min.) The soldiers of Bravo Company are stationed in Baghdad for the 2004 fighting. Central to the film is the mystery of Staff Sgt. James (Jeremy Renner) who comes in to replace a slaughtered demolition expert. Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; risk-taking amazes and angers his subordinate, Sgt. Sanborn (Anthony Mackie). The suspenseful, grimly funny script is by co-producer Mark Boal. Renner is outstanding as the inhumanly brave demolition expert. Director Kathryn Bigelow does what Howard Hawks would do; she finds the cooperation between men of great competence in a killing trade, rather than pumping up rivalry. Bigelow breaks through the sense of anonymity that characterizes most Iraq war movies, where helmeted men move alike and talk the same terse slang. (RvB)


focuses on Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), who overcame homelessness as a teenager to received a football scholarship to the University of Mississippi and later played in the NFL. Oher succeeded with the help of a wealthy Christian couple, Ole Miss grads Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) and Sean Tuohy (Tim McGraw), who took Oher in and made him a part of their family. (MV)

He and his crew set up their stand in the streets of modern-day London, trying to lure patrons in to a world beyond the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mirror. On board is his daughter, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that she has been promised to the devil on her 16th birthday; Mr. Nick (Tom Waits) is sniffing around already. During their travels, the group rescues a hanged man named Tony (an irresolute Heath Ledger). Certainly, Gilliamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for antique theater is trueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;although the greasepaint and cardboard make one wonder why he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stage this story instead of filming it. (RvB) B63:/ABAB/B7=<

(R; 112 min.) Well cast, visually pleasant yet strangely toneless film about Tolstoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last days. Around 1910 in Moscow, Valentin (James McAvoy) is recruited by Chertkov (Paul Giamatti), who is dedicated to carrying out the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reformist ideas regarding celibacy and manual labor. Valentin will live on Tolstoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commune and record the great manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts. Tolstoy (Christopher Plummer) is enjoying a sort of Indian summer, watching his minifarm bloom and receiving the adulation of the world. But the countâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s countessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sofya, his wife of nearly 50 years, played by Helen Mirrenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has tired of her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s utopian politics. Meanwhile, Valentinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to stay B637;/57</@7C;=4 pure and virginal is 2=1B=@>/@</AACA sorely tested by Masha (Kerry Condon). Mirren (R; 117 min.) For Terry does the great lady thing Gilliam, Don Quixote is with ease. Director still the ur-text. Despite Michael Hoffman the various stops gives us Tolstoy as a and starts he has had cracked, principled old adapting the Cervantes classic, Gilliam repeatedly grandfather, manipulated by outsiders. (RvB) makes films about fantasy as an escape >@317=CA0/A32 from a cruel world. The =<B63<=D3:>CA6 Imaginarium of Doctor 0GA/>>67@3(R; 110 Parnassus, a very personal min.) Much lauded, but and not-so-coherent itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bulldozer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1987, fantasy, has Christopher during some of Harlemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Plummer in the Man of most suffering years. A la Mancha role this time, girl of immense girth, with Verne Troyer as 16-year-old Claireece Percy, a dwarf Sancho (Gabourey â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gabbyâ&#x20AC;? Panza. Plummer plays Sidibe) makes her way Doctor Parnassus, an through life.

Her scathing, angry mother, Mary (Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique), blames Precious for this and her resulting pregnancy), urging her to stop this foolishness about school and go on welfare. Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique is great, but Precious has a judgmental streak that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quit. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been essential to a success worthy of its sensationalism.

(PG-13; 128 min.) There are moments during Sherlock Holmes when you wish you could hit director Guy Ritchie with his own storyboard; there are bone-crushing fights that you feel like applauding for just to celebrate the fact that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re over at last. Yet all in all, Sherlock Holmes is ripping fun. Robert Downey Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expert acting reflects Aldous Huxleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thought that if you could open the doors of perception, you would see the world as it is: infinite. This insight sums up the mind of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest detectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it also sums up the mind of a schizophrenic. Downeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holmes is a dandy in high Victorian regalia, smoked glasses, ascots and the kind of

slanted hats worn in Oscar Wildeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s circle. But we also see another side of Holmesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a hermit crab in a dank flat, huddled under a silk dressing gown so raveled it looks shaggy as a bear skin. The movie keeps coming back to a serene partnershipâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when Holmes says â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s afoot,â&#x20AC;? Jude Lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s formidable Watson picks up the rest of the Henry V quote. (RvB) /A7<5:3;/< (R; 109 min.) Based on Christopher Isherwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early-1960s novel, canonical in gay literature but slightly dusty today. A British professor (Colin Firth) teaching in L.A. loses his longtime companion in a car accident and has decided he can no longer stand the pain. He finds some consolation with a harddrinking old friend (and ex-lover) called Charley (Julianne Moore); on his route, he encounters young men who are both interesting and interested. Noteworthy as a great comeback performance by Firth, who has had much substandard work to deal with lately. Firth plays George with sensitivity and grace, and a sense of the era that most of the performers here lack. Director Tom

Ford shows his roots as a fashion designer, focusing on surfaces. The clothes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the men. (RvB) B63E67B3@700=<

(R; 144 min.) In the insignificant village of Eichwald (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oakwoodâ&#x20AC;?), just before World War I, we hear a series of stories. These stories concern acts of violence that disturbed the orderly progression of the years. The events are narrated by an old man who was, long ago, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vacant-looking schoolteacher (Christian Friedel). He advises us that everything we will see is based on things half-heard and halfremembered. We can take this ineffectual manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word for it. Clues pass him by, and he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide a solid resolution for the story. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to understand that Eichwald is poisoned, root and branch. The schoolteacher comments that what we see will help us understand â&#x20AC;&#x153;the events that came after.â&#x20AC;? By â&#x20AC;&#x153;the events,â&#x20AC;? director Michael Haneke may mean Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next 30 years after 1914. Eichwald is a serpentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;segg hatchery: the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obedient children will be participants in the kaiserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war and Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crime wave. (RvB)


102 min.) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a perfect film, but The Wolfman is a loving remake, made by people who understood the romance, pathos and torment of the original 1941 film. This new animal has speed on his side, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more viscera flying around. In 1891, after the horrific death of his brother, the noted Shakespearean actor Lawrence Talbot (Benicio del Toro) returns home to his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mansion. This means a re-encounter with his estranged father Sir John (Anthony Hopkins). The town gossip has it that Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother was killed by a tame dancing bear owned by a band of Gypsies; when investigating on a moonlit night, Lawrence himself is nearly killed by the real culprit. The fiancĂŠ of the late brother (Emily Blunt) stays to nurse Lawrence back to health And when the next moon rises, well, you know. Probably you could hire a makeup man just to make Del Toro look less like a wolf. But the Talbot scenes suggest Del Toro was cast for his resemblance to Lon Chaney Jr., with his clouded, thick features and his air of suffering. We see the human under the fur. (RvB)

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of February 24 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is complicated,â&#x20AC;? wrote poet Wallace Stevens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If that were not so, life and poetry and everything else would be a bore.â&#x20AC;? I hope you will choose his wisdom to serve as your guiding light in the coming weeks. It is high time, in my astrological opinion, for you to shed any resentment you might feel for the fact that life is a crazy tangle of mystifying and interesting stories. Celebrate it, Aries! Revel in it. Fall down on your knees and give holy thanks for it. And by the way, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big secret: To the extent that you do glory in the complications, the complications will enlighten you, amuse you, and enrich you. B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): This is one time when you can be both the river and the bridge. In fact, I strongly suggest that you make every effort to be both the river and the bridge. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave it up to you to interpret how this metaphor applies to your life, but hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a clue to get you started. Be a force of nature that f lows vigorously along even as you also provide a refuge for those who want to be close to your energy but are not yet ready to be inside it and f low along with it.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): Almost exactly ten years from now, you will be blessed with an eruption of personal power thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so crafty and so practical that you will be able to visualize a solution to a problem that has stumped you for a long time. It may take you months to actually carry out that solution in its entirety, but all the while you will have the luxury of feeling perfect certainty about what must be done. And you know what the weird thing is, Gemini? Something very similar is in the works for the next few weeks: an eruption of crafty, practical power that will help you materialize the key to solving an old dilemma, hopefully followed by months of carrying out your lucid plan.

1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): Last night I had a dream in which I was addressing a crowd of thousands of Cancerians in a large stadium. I was referring to them as dolphins rather than as crabs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I say unto you, my fellow dolphins,â&#x20AC;? I proclaimed (I myself was born June 23), â&#x20AC;&#x153;that you have been given a sacred assignment by the great gods of time themselves. And that assignment is to master the art of Timeology.â&#x20AC;? When I awoke from the dream, I was awash with feelings of deep relaxation and ease, although I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure why. I had never before heard that word â&#x20AC;&#x153;timeology,â&#x20AC;? so I googled it. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how the Urban Dictionary defined it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;spending time doing what you want to do, not accomplishing anything major but also not wasting time.â&#x20AC;? It so happens that this prescription is well-suited to our current astrological omens. I suggest that you and I be as playful as dolphins. :3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): In an episode of the animated TV sci-fi series Futurama, we get to see inside the headquarters of Romanticorp, where â&#x20AC;&#x153;love researchâ&#x20AC;? is being done. One of the experiments involves robots delivering various pickup lines to actual women. The line that works best is â&#x20AC;&#x153;My two favorite things are commitment and changing myself.â&#x20AC;? I recommend that you make that your own catchphrase, Leoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not just this week but for the foreseeable future. The entire year of 2010 will be an excellent time to deepen your commitments and transform yourself, and the weeks ahead will bring unprecedented opportunities to intensify those efforts.

D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be not forgetful to entertain strangers,â&#x20AC;? advises a passage in the Bible, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.â&#x20AC;? While thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always good counsel, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially apt for you in the coming days. I believe you will come into contact with people who can provide you with valuable teaching and healing, even if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re disguised as baristas or pet shampooers or TV repairmenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and even if this will be the one and only time they will provide you with teaching and healing. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): Metaphorically speaking, you have recently begun crossing the water in a dream boat that has a small leak. If you keep going, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible you will reach the far side before sinking. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncertain. And even if you were able to remain af loat the entire way, the shakiness of the situation would probably fill you with anxiety. My suggestion, then, is to head back to where you started and fix the leak.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): Some Scorpios bring out the worst in people. Other Scorpios draw out the best. Then there are those members of your tribe who sometimes bring out the worst in their fellow humans and other times bring out the best. Where do you fit in this spectrum? Regardless of your position up until now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m betting that in the coming months youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be moving in the direction of bringing out more of the best. And it all begins now. To get the process underway, think of five people you care about, and visualize the wonderful futures that it might be possible for them to create for themselves. A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): More than a few fairy tales feature the theme of characters who accidentally find a treasure. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not searching for treasure, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel worthy of it, and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully prepared for it. They may initially not even know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at, and see it as preposterous or abnormal or disquieting. Who could blame them if they ran away from the treasure? In order to recognize and claim it, they might have to shed a number of their assumptions about the way the world works. And they might have to clear up a discrepancy between their unconscious longings and their conscious intentions. 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): Everyone alive has some kind of learning disability. I know brilliant physicists who are dumb about poetry. There are fact-loving journalists whose brains freeze when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re invited to consider the ambiguous truths of astrology. My friend John suffers from dyslexia, while I myself am incapable of mastering the mysteries of economics. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your blind spot, Capricorn? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your own personal learning disability? Whatever it is, this would be an excellent time, astrologically speaking, to work with it. For the next few months, you will be able to call on what you need in order to diminish its power to limit you.

/?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot change anything until we accept it,â&#x20AC;? said psychologist Carl Jung. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.â&#x20AC;? Make that your hypothesis, Aquarius, and then conduct the following experiment. First, choose some situation you would like to transform. Next, open your heart to it with all the love and compassion you can muster. Go beyond merely tolerating it with a resigned disappointment. Work your way into a frame of mind in which you completely understand and sympathize with why it is the way it is. Imagine a scenario in which you could live your life with equanimity if the situation in question never changed. Finally, awash in this grace, meditate on how you might be able to actually help it evolve into something new. >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): If you were going to launch a career as a rap artist any time soon, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d suggest that maybe you use the alias â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Tryâ&#x20AC;? as your stage name. If you were planning to convert to an exotic religious path and get a new spiritual name, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend something like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bringit Harderâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pushit Stronger.â&#x20AC;? If you were about to join an activist group that fights for a righteous cause, and you wanted a new nickname to mark your transformation, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d urge you to consider a tag like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Radicalâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Primeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultra.â&#x20AC;? And even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing any of the above, I hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll carry out some ritual of transition to intensify your commitment to your lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital dreams. 6][Se]`Y(EVObO`Sg]cR]W\Ub]USb `SORgT]`  -@SOR[gacUUSabW]\aOb Vbb^(PWbZg  \]ebVS\bSZZ[Sg]c` ]e\ObB`cbV`]]abS`.U[OWZQ][
