Rhapsodies It Takes One

Feeding people and making a difference BY MIRIAM HODGMAN

W

hen Kim Hamilton took on the management at Rancho Feliz Mobile Home Park in Rohnert Park, there were no activities for the park’s children. Three years later, with the support of the park’s owners Millennium Housing, and Haven Management Services, the children who live at the park have a learning center, complete with a library. They also have an after-school homework club with up to seven tutors provided daily by Sonoma State’s JUMP Program, and computers donated by the Active 20-30 Club of the North Bay, a community garden and a soccer field.

Teachers know that they can call Kim and chat with her about the special attention a student may need in a certain subject, such as fractions, grammar, history or spelling. According to Kim, “A lot of the children at the park were struggling in school, and I was concerned they’d be overlooked.” Kim recently attended the commencements of 16 of her homework-club participants, including two from high school. Perhaps most importantly, Kim and her husband, Al, partnered with the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) to ensure that no child at their site went hungry. They started an after-school-snack program. When students get off the school bus at the clubhouse, they eat a healthy snack before they start their studies. Now that school is out for the summer, children continue to receive at least one healthy meal a day because Rancho Feliz is participating in the REFB’s free summer lunch program. The Hamiltons, alongside senior volunteer Clara Taylor, have become surrogate grandparents to the park’s roughly 60 children. Kim also mentors a second local mobile-home park that is setting up a similar program, because as Kim puts it, “it only takes one person to make a difference, and what an amazing world it would be if everyone decided to be that one.” For information on where to find one of the REFB’s 48 free summer lunch sites for children 18 and under, call 707.523.7900 or dial 211. The program runs through Aug. 10. Miriam Hodgman is the communications coordinator for the Redwood Empire Food Bank in Santa Rosa. Open Mic is a weekly feature in the Bohemian.

Ask the Tough Questions

Great article and very informative (“Bedside Bankroll,” May 23). As another eldercare professional, it’s highly recommended that families avoid privately hired caregivers, as they are often not less expensive and expose families to extraordinary risk. I would also suggest interviewing caregiver agencies thoroughly, asking tough questions for references and making sure the agency is bonded and insured. Since there is no licensing for nonmedical homecare in California, it’s best for the agency to have a licensed clinical social worker on staff, and that they contract with local government agencies and have a strong, trusted reputation in the senior-care community—one that is much more than positive branding.

Soda Is Really Bad for You New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg’s decision to ban supersized sugary sodas has resurrected the age-old debate over the role of the state in protecting the public health. In recent years, this debate involved bicycle helmets, car seat belts, tobacco, saturated fats in meat and dairy, trans fats and sugar (or more aptly, highfructose corn syrup). Public subsidies for tobacco, meat and dairy, and corn production added fuel to the debate. I would argue that society has a right to regulate activities that impose a heavy burden on the public treasury. National medical costs of dealing with our obesity epidemic, associated with consumption of meat, dairy and sugars, are estimated at $190 billion. Health advocates and fiscal conservatives alike should support eliminating subsidies for these products,

as well as judicious taxation to reduce their use and recoup public costs.

Benjamin Franklin claimed that nothing is certain except death and taxes. Ironically, taxing products that make us sick can defer death substantially.

Cuba Libre The United States is trying to blame Cuba’s poverty and troubles and everything else on Castro, when for 50 years this country has devastated Cuba through American sanctions and embargoes, etc. Before Castro took over, the U.S. was Cuba’s closest and biggest trading partner, and they used to supply America with sugar, coffee, tourism and a lot of things. It was notorious that American men would go to Cuba to visit the prostitutes there. But Castro got rid of them and got rid of Batista, who was the bad guy. Before that, the U.S. was very happy to recognize Castro. They said, “Yes, he’s gotten rid of Batista, a bad man, and he made Cuba better for the Cubans”— until he started nationalizing all the industries, businesses and plantations of the rich. They thought the embargoes and the sanctions would work, that they’d starve Castro and his supporters out. That was too much. So then the U.S. government began to fight Cuba, and they helped some Cuban exiles stage the Bay of Pigs invasion under John F. Kennedy—becoming a laughingstock because they lost so badly. Terrorist groups based in Miami have even confessed to being killers, in published books published and in interviews on television. But they have not been brought to justice. However, Cuba has more than 5,000 victims of state terrorism between the dead and the wounded. Thus, as a society, as a sovereign nation, we have the right to defend ourselves, and we do it peacefully. It’s hurting the poor of Cuba more than anybody, whom they claim they want to help!

HMMMMMM Less than two weeks after our cover story on the need for senior low-income housing in Marin, Lucas shelved plans for his movie studio, above . . . and announced he’d develop senior low-income housing instead.

Using the Force

George Lucas strikes back by promising low-income housing, but does the project location even make sense? BY KELLY O’MARA

I

n a county not easily wowed by fame and fortune, George Lucas—the 120th richest person in the United States—has captured a place as Marin’s richest and most famous resident. And now he’s also one of the most controversial. For three decades, the San

Anselmo resident’s Skywalker Ranch and Big Rock Ranch in Lucas Valley (no relation) in northern San Rafael have operated as unobtrusive arms of his Lucasfilm empire. The facilities sit back from the road, hidden from view behind hills. Nearly 5,000 acres of the 6,100 acres are preserved as open space and public hiking trails. But in April Lucas

surprised the county with his announcement that he was pulling out of plans for his third studio at Grady Ranch, near Skywalker and Big Rock, citing opposition from neighbors in the Lucas Valley Estates subdivision and the possibility of a protracted lawsuit. “The level of bitterness and anger expressed by the ) 10 homeowners in Lucas

A storm’s been brewing in the West End neighborhood of Santa Rosa ever since the Bodean Asphalt Plant requested a city permit to install three multistory asphalt thermos storage silos earlier this year. The company claims the silos are an equipment upgrade that will not lead to expanded production, but will allow for increased storage capacity and more efficient production systems. Located in the Maxwell Court commercial industrial area, the plant has been in operation since the 1950s, grandfathered in as a legal nonconforming use. “Asphalt must be produced where it’s needed,” writes Bill Williams, general manager at Bodean, in a defense of the project on the company’s site. But neighbors, including Allen Thomas, claim the environmental effects of the plant have not been fully explored, citing concerns about noise, odor, dust, aesthetics and potential toxins. In an April 26 letter to the planning commission, Thomas’ group Citizens for Safe Neighborhoods asked that an environmental impact report be implemented. The population density has significantly grown in the surrounding area since Bodean established operations more than 50 years ago. “A large-scale asphalt plant does not belong in a downtown, residential location,” writes West End resident Rachel Lumberg in a letter to city planner Bill Rose. “I realize that the plant was grandfathered in; however, that does not permit the city to trade the health of its citizens for business.” On April 26, the planning commission voted to approve a conditional use permit. On Tuesday, June 19, the Santa Rosa City Council holds a public hearing for the permit appeal. Public comment will be welcomed at Santa Rosa City Hall, 100 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa. 4pm. 707.543.3010.—Leilani Clark

Housing ( 9 Valley has convinced us that, even if we were to spend more time and acquire the necessary approvals, we would not be able to maintain a constructive relationship with our neighbors,” said the letter Lucas released at the time. Instead, Lucas went on to say, he would build his studio somewhere where he wasn’t viewed as “an evil empire.” And he would work with developers to turn the Grady Ranch property into low-income housing. Some hypothesized that the move was an attempt to speed up the approval process; in the letter, Lucas criticized the county for the four years he has already spent trying to obtain permits for Grady Ranch, despite previously having his master plan approved in 1999. Others thought that the call for low-income housing was a slap in the face of the Lucas Valley Estates residents, who might be less fond of a lowincome development than they were of the Grady Ranch studio. “Maybe there was a little bit of spite,” said John King, who has lived in Lucas Valley since 1969. King, who was in favor of the Grady Ranch project, met Lucas during a community outreach meeting back when the master plan for the properties was being approved, and took a community tour of the ranches early last year. If the call for low-income housing was a ploy, then Lucas isn’t blinking. The board of supervisors pleaded with Lucas, in what supervisor Susan Adams called a “Hail Mary,” to move forward with the Grady Ranch project after his public withdrawal. Supporters argued that the whitecollar jobs would be a boon to the county economy and that his environmentally friendly plan would have a lower impact than the 280 houses originally zoned for the property back in the 1970s. But with the withdrawal of permit applications, the decision to abort the project became final.

“It’s unfortunate that the Grady Ranch project plug was pulled, for a variety of reasons,” said Adams. Lucas is also moving ahead with plans to develop lowincome housing, with the Marin Community Foundation funding the project. Lynne Hale, Lucasfilm’s public relations director, said in press statement, “We are delighted that a prestigious organization such as the Marin Community Foundation is looking into the possibility of working with developers for Grady Ranch.” Dr. Thomas Peters, president of the Marin Community Foundation, says the proposal is in very early stages, but that he has been in “close communication” with Lucas and developers. While no application has been submitted to the county, the ranch is being considered as a possibility for senior housing. The remote location poses a couple of challenges, however. Most low-income housing is built along transit corridors or near public transit, with some exceptions, said Peters. Additionally, infrastructure would have to be extended out Lucas Valley to the site. Financially, it simply may not make sense to build a low-income project there. “This is a maximum challenge to see if we can do this,” said Peters. It’s also unclear what the property can be zoned for and how much of the preserved open space has been permanently deed-restricted against future development. “There’s an idea on the table,” said Adams. “This is very, very early in the process.” And the proposal may come up against neighborhood opposition. The Lucas Valley Estates Homeowners Association, which disbanded five years ago and quickly reformed last fall, opposed the Grady Ranch development, but has no position yet about the low-income housing.

The Lucas Valley Homeowners Association, a different subdivision further in from Grady Ranch, had no position on the project, but mistakenly received a number of angry emails and phone calls blaming them for Lucas’ decision, said office manager Janice Cunningham. The Lucas Valley HOA has an election for officers and dues, said King, while the Lucas Valley Estates association is just a handful of volunteers who represented their own views. While community opinions are mixed about Marin’s most famous filmmaker, residents are also quick to point out all the good he has done. In San Anselmo, Lucas has built himself a large house after buying up—at very high prices and generous agreements—a number of the properties around him. Neighbors received small Christmas thank-you’s for putting up with construction, but some are still not fans. Down the street, Lucas paid for the undergrounding of utilities along Red Hill Avenue, bought and rebuilt the beloved Amazing Grace music store to stop them from being evicted, and maintains the median at the entrance to town. In downtown San Anselmo, he owns a building that has been empty for the better part of a year, but which he hopes to turn into a town center and park for the community. “Everything he does is good,” said San Anselmo Chamber of Commerce president Connie Rodgers. “I hope we’ve all learned a lesson from the Grady Ranch ordeal.” Even Lucas seems to acknowledge that his good works may not be fully appreciated. In the letter that announced the end of Grady Ranch, he bitingly says the community just doesn’t want his open space preservation, creek restoration or the services provided the county by his on-site fire truck and emergency personnel. “Maybe,” said the letter, “we’re ahead of our time.”

Wildness Within Remembering David Brower

BY JULIANE POIRIER

W

e who love nature owe much to the late David Brower, who, according to his wife, “dropped out of school before they could teach him what he couldn’t do.”

Brower left UC Berkeley at the age of 16 and turned instead to the mountains for, quite literally, a higher education. Brower ascended peaks that had never been climbed before and came down from the mountains on fire for the preservation of wildness, becoming the impassioned leader who transformed the Sierra Club from a politically innocuous hiking club to a formidable defender of nature. The very obsession with conservation that fueled Brower’s victories also made him the victim of “founder’s syndrome,” which happens when an organization stabilizes then rejects the Moseslike leadership that got it started. Once the trails had been blazed,

whether natural or administrative, Brower pushed on to new challenges. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Brower’s birth, and his life is celebrated in a new book, The Wildness Within: Remembering David Brower. What makes the book exceptional is that the author, David’s son Kenneth Brower, bucks the traditional biography genre and instead interviews his late father’s colleagues (and one grandchild), from Paul Ehrlich, who wrote The Population Bomb with Anne Ehrlich, to Amory Lovins, the energy guru who gave us the negawatt. The author’s patchwork of indepth interviews reveals more than the portrait of a great man; it unites early and recent history makers of the environmental movement, raft trip by raft trip, legal battle by legal battle. In doing so, this book about David Brower becomes more than a simple biography; it serves as a tool to forward the man’s cause. As a multilayered history text, The Wildness Within is a wake-up call reminding readers not to doze in the fight for conservation. Ehrlich explains that population growth, still a key factor in environmental degradation, was “misinterpreted” in the United States, and we’re “still heading towards 10 billion on the planet, when we ought to be about one and a half or 2 billion.” Richard Norgaard, ecological economics professor at UC Berkeley, reminds us that “basic economics doesn’t give answers.” The author compares Norgaard to Quaker Kenneth Boulding, who said, “Anyone who thinks you can have infinite growth on a finite planet is either a madman or an economist.” Kenneth Brower reads and discusses ‘The Wildness Within’ in a benefit for Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods on Saturday, June 23, at Armstrong Woods. 17000 Armstrong Woods Road, Guerneville. Noon. $50 includes signed book and lunch. 707.869.2240.

Sebastopol’s Hole in the Wall: small spot, great grub BY SUZANNE DALY

M

uch like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’s legendary hideout, Sebastopol’s Hole in the Wall Restaurant isn’t easy to locate. But when found, it offers a treasure trove of delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes. “First, people hear about us, and then they go on a little bit

of a scavenger hunt to find us,” says Adam Beers, chef and owner. “The location is absolutely wonderful. In a small town, location and visibility are not necessary. With the internet, Yelp, Google Maps and GPS, word of mouth is all we need.” In a courtyard behind the old bowling alley on Gravenstein Highway South, the little restaurant is often full on both

the patio and inside, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The compact room, done in half artgallery and half industrial-chic décor with homey wood tables and chairs, shares the space with an open kitchen. “Breakfast is where we stand ahead of the competition,” says Beers, and patrons can watch as he whips up a Fun Guy omelette ($9), made with gourmet mushrooms, veggies and chèvre, or Angus short rib hash and eggs ($9.75), both accompanied by country-

fried potatoes. The Dutch Baby ($7.75), a large puffy pancake, is served with caramelized sugar and Fuji apples. “I love to serve it myself, straight from the kitchen to the table,” says Beers. “It’s all puffed up and then it flattens. It’s a lot of fun, and it gives me a chance to come out and have contact with the customers and say hi.” The menu includes dishes that Beers himself enjoys, with international and Cajun influences. “On the dinner menu, we list borscht next to gumbo, and what they have in common is that they are comfort food from two different cultures. There’s no reason to keep them separate— they’re both yummy.” While in high school on San Juan Island, Beers’ first job was working for a chef from Louisiana. “The menu’s Cajun influence honors the person who brought me into the culinary world,” he says. “I never went to culinary school; I learned everything from the chefs, on the job. I believe in having passion for whatever you’re doing, no matter what it is.” In 1997, Beers moved to Sonoma County, where relatives lived, and took a break from the business. “I tried my hand at gardening and carpentry. I still cooked all the time, but out of my garden for myself.” A decade later, Beers worked as the sauté chef for the French Garden Restaurant, and then became the savory chef at Village Bakery. The flaky, croissant-like biscuits that accompany Hole in the Wall’s breakfast menu reflect his time there, and are over-thetop delicious, served with gourmet mushroom or sausage gravy ($5.50). Hole in the Wall just celebrated its first birthday, and together with his girlfriend, Amy MacInnis, front-of-house manager, Beers strives to make everyone feel at home. “It’s the small-time charm that makes everyone feel they belong. Our goal is to have everyone have a great experience.” Hole in the Wall Restaurant, 972 Gravenstein Hwy. S, Ste. 100, Sebastopol. 707.861.3777.

SMALL BITES

Paleta Party The summer I spent in Morelia, Michoacán, I gained 10 pounds. Blame it on the paleta, my beloved after-school treat from the La Michoacána shops that tempted from nearly every block. I’ve never lost the taste for a rice pudding (arroz con leche) paleta or fresh strawberry Mexican ice cream on a hot summer afternoon. Fortunately, Santa Rosa has its share of nevarias, with two of them across the street from each other in Roseland. Frozen Art’s selection of 40 ice cream flavors reads like a directive from heaven: rose petal, cappuccino, maracuyá (passion fruit)—to name a few. Descended from Tocumbo, Michoacán—the ice cream capital of Mexico—this family-owned business of thirdgeneration ice cream makers knows exactly how to capture the sweet spot. Owner Jorge Alcazar says that he was forced to change the name from La Real Michoacána to Frozen Art after being threatened with litigation by an ice cream shop owner in Sonoma. 500 Sebastopol Road, Santa Rosa. 19151 Sonoma Hwy, Sonoma. 707.331.2899. Colores on Dutton Avenue (the old Michoacán Ice Cream and Coffee sign still peeps through the front awning—another forced name change) serves yummy coconutcovered paletas for $2.50 and a magnificent strawberry cheesecake ice cream. 443 Dutton Ave., Santa Rosa. 707.526.6661. If you’re taking a drive down Highway 12, stop in at Michoacána Natural Ice Cream, which earns rave reviews from everyone who steps through the door. You can’t go wrong with the chongo, pistachio or espresso with almonds. 18495 Hwy. 12, Sonoma. 707.938.1773.—Leilani Clark

Annadel Estate Winery A taste of history BY JAMES KNIGHT

A

nnadel State Park is known to thousands of bikers, hikers and equestrians, some of whom may have heard the story about how the area was named after an early property owner’s daughter: Annie’s Dell. Fewer still know that a stone winery was built here in the 1880s by Henry Bolle. But the really big secret is that a new family is restoring the property and resurrecting the winery name. After 120 years, Annadel Winery is open for business again. Just five years ago, Dean Bordigioni had no intentions of caretaking a historical landmark. “The last thing in the world I wanted was a place like this,” Bordigioni recalls. A Harley Davidson dealer with real estate interests in Las Vegas, he had been looking for a far-flung ranch to get away from it all. Then he came across Annadel and met his wife, Abigail Zimmerman, at the Sonoma Farmers Market, and now the two are running a vineyard, antique rose farm and wedding destination, while raising their young daughter . . . named Anni. It’s a telling detail. Gamely leading a tour on a recent afternoon, Zimmerman emphasizes that all they want to do is offer this seldom-seen, oak-shaded dell to the public, hinting that their tasting permit (granted May 17) was hard-won. The atmospheric winery ruins are only open for 10 weddings per year, while wines are made, for now, at nearby Deerfield Ranch. Relaxed, shoot-thebreeze tastings are held on the porch of the 1886 ranch house, rebuilt using salvaged wood from the property. Bordigioni claims no credit for the vineyard, planted at the turn of this century by one of the previous owners. Notably, this special mix of Bordeaux varietals—rumored to be of the same stuff as one of Napa’s most famed Franco-American wine collaborations, though it cannot be named—has a Pinot Noir vineyard for a neighbor. Unlike Napa, the Sonoma Valley cools off a bit at its northern reach. But first we cool off with a 2010 Napa Valley Chardonnay ($34) that’s supple and well-rounded, with candy apple aromas. The 2009 Anni’s Blend Sonoma Valley ($36) is a Cab-based blend with vanilla, dried berry and patent leather notes, and a fine finish—nearly as fine as just drinking in the view from the porch, hidden in plain sight near Oakmont Drive, backdropped by the conifers of the park’s blue-green north slope.

CARBON KING Jeff Creque explains grasses and soils on the Marin Carbon Project’s test plot.

The Marin Carbon Project could be on the way to saving the world BY STETT HOLBROOK

W

hen it comes to climate change and the impending disaster it spells for life on earth, good news is hard to come by. Many climate scientists say we’ve already reached the point of no return. But thanks to the work of a team of scientists working in West Marin, the end may not be so near.

For the past four years, the Marin Carbon Project has quietly been conducting research in the grasslands and pastures of Marin and Sonoma counties that, if borne out, may just save us all. In a nutshell, the group’s research has shown that by making small changes in how grasslands and rangelands are managed, carbon can be removed from the atmosphere and stored in the soil. If these practices can

be disseminated and practiced broadly, they could move the dial on climate change. And it could be as easy as spreading cow manure on the ground. First, a quick science lesson: there is a fixed amount of carbon on earth. This carbon moves between several large pools—the atmosphere (carbon dioxide), the earth (carbon, i.e. oil, coal), the ocean (carbonic acid) and in humans and all other living things (carbohydrates). While climate-change deniers disagree, it’s widely accepted that things started to go south when humans began to burn soil-based carbon, releasing it into the atmosphere. The increase of heat-trapping carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has given us climate change—and a very uncertain future. Riding bikes, using solar power and drying clothes on the line all help reduce carbon emissions, but the troubling fact is that these necessary efforts will only slow the

rate of climate change, they won’t stop it. We need something else to reverse the earth-warming feedback loop already forcefully underway. Enter the Marin Carbon Project. While peer-reviewed results are due to be published as soon as this summer, preliminary findings of the group’s work are enormously encouraging. It all began when researchers spread a half-inch layer of compost onto John Wick and Peggy Rathmann’s Nicasio ranch to see what impact it might have on banking soil carbon. Previously, the group had sampled soils on 35 plots in Sonoma and Marin counties, and found that those with the greatest soil carbon had been covered with large amounts of manure. Manure can stoke photosynthesis in plants, pulling carbon out of the air and into the soil, but in large quantities it can pose health and water hazards. So the researchers settled on the use of compost for their research.

What they found amazed them. After one year, the test plots showed a sequestering of at least one ton of carbon per hectare. A year later, without adding any additional compost, they found another ton of carbon in the soil. A year later, the same thing. And the next year, too. “This is the most exciting news on earth right now,” said project director Wick. In addition to the compost study, the group is also looking at how cattle pasture can increase soil carbon; properly managed, cattle can help grasslands thrive and increase carbon uptake in the soil. Jeff Creque, rangeland ecologist and cofounder of the Marin Carbon Project, said the results are very promising. “Our soils are a huge potential reservoir,” he said. “Soil carbon offers the most hope.” Once the carbon project’s work has been published, the group wants to distribute its findings to

Gimme Shelter CREATIVE BUILDING GURU In addition to chronicling unusual living spaces, Lloyd Kahn lays out all of his books by hand.

Lloyd Kahn documents wildly creative, sustainable living spaces BY LEILANI CLARK

T

here he was, in the middle of vendors shilling organic raw fairtrade quinoa bars and yoga pants made out of recycled tires: a white-haired man in a Thrasher Skateboards T-shirt, manning a booth stocked with oversized glossy, colorful books. “Oh my God, it’s Lloyd Kahn!” declared my friend Torie, a radical librarian who’s always dreamed of building her own house on a compound in the woods.

I followed her through the 2008 San Francisco Green Festival to the Shelter Publications booth, where I ended up buying a copy of Builders of the Pacific Coast, Kahn’s full-color exploration of wildly imaginative hand-built houses from San Francisco to Vancouver Island. Not only did it capture the beauty of a creatively built house, but the book itself was a work of art—and with that

I became a fan of Lloyd Kahn, documentarian of owner-builders and their sweet, sustainable world. Kahn’s latest book, Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter (Shelter Publications; $26.95), explores the recent boom in houses under 500 square feet, a movement lead in part by Jay Shafer, the Sebastopolbased owner of Tumbleweed Houses. “I noticed that tiny homes were getting media attention, so I started assembling information,” says Kahn, on the phone from his home in Bolinas. “I always have several ideas for books revolving in my head, and I sort of wait to see which one will take.” Sustainability and green building may be worn-out buzzwords in 2012, but Kahn was writing about this stuff, out of his own singular passion for ownerbuilt houses made from natural and sustainable materials, before it had any mainstream clout. Still, the 77-year-old publisher and writer considers himself a journalist rather than a leader of the sustainability movement, even as he acknowledges that self-

sufficiency and sustainability have always made sense to him. “The idea of being smaller rather than larger is the important thing here,” he explains, adding that he’s heartened to see mounting interest from the younger generation for this style of minimal, scaled-down living. “We’ve been talking about these things in our publishing business for 40 years—sustainability, doing things yourself, organic gardening, building and ecological consciousness,” says Kahn. “All these things were sort of ‘Whole Earth’ concepts back in the ’60s, and it has come around where I see that 20-year-olds, the children of the baby boom, are now of age, and among other things they are discovering our books.” A few of these younger folks grace the pages of the latest book, including Jenine Alexander, a young woman builder from Healdsburg, who’s completed and sold two tiny houses since 2009. “Tiny, tiny homes are not for everyone,” explains Kahn. “The little Tiny ) 22

landowners, farmers and ranchers. A delegation of Chinese officials has already visited West Marin to tour the project. China, by the way, has the world’s largest grasslands, in Mongolia. Given that one-third of the earth is covered with grasslands, the potential to scale up the project is vast, said Torri Estrada, consulting director of the project. “You start to think of the scale of rangeland in California alone, and it starts to make a big dent in reducing metric tons of carbon.” How much carbon needs to be removed from the atmosphere to roll back climate change is a key question, and one that doesn’t have a definitive answer yet. But data shows capturing carbon in the soil can be the way to do it, Estrada said. “We know technically it can work. The scale is the issue.” The research team is lead by UC Berkeley scientist Whendee Silver, and is a collaboration among the UC Cooperative Extension, Marin Organic, the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, the Marin Resource Conservation District, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and Nicasio Native Grass Ranch. If the science bears out and the group’s methods are repeatable, the implications are potentially huge. Industrial, chemical-intensive agriculture is responsible for as much as one-third of climatechanging gasses. But by focusing on practices that sequester carbon, agriculture can become a big part of the solution. Farmers who increase carbon in the soil may be able to tap into the emerging carbon market. The production of compost, which in itself performs a huge service by diverting green waste from landfills where it can emit climate-warming methane gas, will become a growth industry of green jobs. And we may not leave a smoldering globe to future generations—or this generation. “Anywhere you have a piece of soil, you can sequester carbon,” said Jeff Creque, agro-ecologist and cofounder of the Marin Carbon Project. “To me that’s a wondrous thought. Anyone can do it.”

Green ( 21 Tumbleweed places, a lot of people would feel like that is too small, but there is the idea that it’s not permanent. Maybe you need to do it for a few years, or you can start small and add on.” This is exactly what Kahn and his wife did at their Bolinas homestead when they first started building 40 years ago. They began with a kitchen out on the deck and a small bedroom that was only about 6-by-6-feet, and built the house out from there. “It worked out fine,” says Kahn. For the book Builders of the Pacific Coast, Kahn traveled up and down the West Coast in his trusty 2003 Toyota Tacoma, taking 1,000 of the 1,200 photos himself. For Tiny Homes, he relied more on technology, specifically web research and email, to complete the project. “Maybe for a year, and maybe an hour or two a day, I’d search out stuff for follow-up on leads, and then I’d print out the photos and anything that looked interesting, and maybe some text, and put that stuff in a folder.” Once he reached “critical mass,” it was time for layout—by hand. Yes, in a world of InDesign and computer domination, Kahn still does book layout using an inexpensive color copy machine and removable Scotch tape. He enlarges the pictures, tapes them down and prints the text in two or three columns to figure out how it will fit. “It works pretty good,” he says. “That way I don’t have to be locked into the requirements of the computer, and it’s different for your mind.” He’s been doing layout like this for years, ever since compiling his first book, Domebook One, in 1970, while working as editor for the Whole Earth Catalog. The book was based on Kahn’s experience as a carpenter, building domes inspired by Buckminster Fuller. But after discovering domes didn’t work the way they were supposed to, Kahn took the book out of publication and traveled to Canada and Europe to study the roots of building. Upon returning, Kahn created the book Shelter, which has sold 270,000 copies since its

publication in 1973. The book explores the history of handbuilding from early man to modern times and includes building instructions for all kinds of shelters, from yurts to cabins. Shelter Publications became a full-time endeavor with the publication of the book, and in 1978 Kahn published Shelter II. At the dawn of the Reagan era, the company began focusing on books about stretching, weight training and running marathons—not a far leap, since Kahn himself is an athlete. He still runs to this day, and has surfed for 50 years. At the young age of 65, he took up skateboarding (you can find online videos of Kahn dominating a hill on a longboard, white hair streaming behind). Then a little over 10 years ago, Kahn felt the urge to create books on building again, and he ended up publishing Homework: Handbuilt Shelter in 2004. “All along, it’s made sense to me for people to build and create their own shelter with their own hands—that never will change,” says Kahn. “Your computer is not going to build your house for you, and you still use your 10 digits and a hammer and saw, even if it’s an electric saw and a nail gun.” Kahn does acknowledge that it can be difficult for owner-builders in Marin and Sonoma counties, where building permits can cost exorbitant fees. “Where I live now, it’s pretty much impossible for anybody other than a millionaire to build,” says Kahn. “The building permits in season in Marin County are $50,000.” Fortunately, the San Francisco native reaches beyond his own home to find inspiration, as seen in Tiny Homes, with its photos of joyous, small-space livers and builders across the country and the world, people who’ve bucked the system and done things their own way—just like Lloyd Kahn. “I still never got discouraged,” says Kahn. “I think that whatever is going on politically, you still need food and shelter. Maybe the biggest incentive, I think, is to avoid mortgage or high rents.”

produced newsletter, Activist News, launched in 2003. “It ties together activists in the Napa Valley,” explains Stephens, “so we come from a common understanding of the issues.” His Activist News supplants the conservation newsletter he produced while serving as a Napa Sierra Club officer, until he was booted out for being too radical. “Too radical” is not a status difficult to achieve in Napa, where business drives discourse in a wine-dominated economy. Stephens and a colleague became infamous over a decade ago by suing the county of Napa under California Environmental Quality Act laws three times and winning all three suits. “Since then, we’ve challenged timber harvest plans in Napa,” explains Stephens. Stephens is a dedicated social activist, though, he remarks, “most know me as an environmentalist. I feel good being on the cutting edge of change for social justice, whether it’s gay rights or immigrants rights or peace efforts.” Stephens’ social activism has deep roots. At 19, he participated in an East Coast peace march from Canada to Cuba, calling for nuclear disarmament. When the marchers reached Washington, D.C., in 1964, they joined the march of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Then the group continued their journey south. “As soon as we crossed the Mason-Dixon line,” said Stephens, “our peace march instantly became a Civil Rights march because our group was integrated.” They walked from Quebec to Georgia in five months, but crossing Georgia took another five months because they were arrested so often. Once, Stephens was put in jail for driving with a black man in the front seat. “My training in the Civil Rights movement,” said Stephens, “taught me that when you face a threat, you don’t run.” Stephens, now facing cancer as well as social injustice, stands firm. “We are on the side of angels,” says Stephens, “the side of history. Our children will thank us for our efforts.”

eligious fervor. Ritual human sacriďŹ ce. Ridiculously fakelooking beards. In Burying Our Father, an original comedy by Fred Curchack and Laura Jorgensonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; opening this weekend at Main Stage West in Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; an ancient tale from the book of Genesis is resurrected, probed, prodded and mined for laughs, all in the interest of exploring mankindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s search for spiritual meaning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a two-person Biblical epic,â&#x20AC;? says Curchack, chuckling at the oxymoronic vibe of the phrase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case, the epic is the story of Abraham, one of the seminal myths of the Westâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and also, of course, a primary myth of Jewish, Christian and Muslim culture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So yeah, basically, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hilarious.â&#x20AC;? According to legend, God told

Abraham that he would become the father of a great nation if he did as he was told and asked no questions. Abraham eventually had two sons. One, Isaac, was conceived with his wife, Sarah, while the other, Ishmael, was conceived with his handmaid, Hagar. The relationship between them was complicated, to say the least, so Ishmael and Hagar were given food and water and sent into the wilderness, where God promised he would bless Ishmael and raise up yet another great nation from his seed. Meanwhile, to test Abrahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faith, God told him to sacriďŹ ce Isaac on a bundle of sticks, and to ask no questions about it. Just before cutting his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throat, God stopped Abraham and gave him a goat to sacriďŹ ce instead. From Isaacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seed grew the Jewish people, while from Ishmaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seed grew the Muslim people. But, as it turns out, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one version of the story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our play,â&#x20AC;? says Curchack, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we imagine what might have happened, years later, when Isaac and Ishmael meet up again to bury Abraham. What would their conversation have been like? Turns out it would have been pretty funny.â&#x20AC;? As history shows, the rancor between the descendents of those two ďŹ gures has been bloody and violent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly the stuff of comedy. Right? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You would think so, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not how comedy works,â&#x20AC;? Curchack says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did this show recently in a small theater in Texas, and one woman come up afterwards and told us she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t laughed that hard in years. Sometimes things are so bad they just have to move toward comedy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Besides,â&#x20AC;? he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in our version, Laura plays God. She was born to play God. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hilarious.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Burying Our Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Saturday through June 30 at Main Stage West, 104 N. Main St., Sebastopol.

‘Hysteria’ riffs on invention of the vibrator BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

Y

ou’d love to applaud Hysteria for the way it encourages female pleasure. But Tanya Wexler’s historical farce is so self-congratulatory, it barely allows its audience a few mild, civilized chuckles. There is some talent here, mostly squandered. Jonathan Pryce steals his scenes as the pompous Victorian doctor Robert Dalrymple, who treats his patients with a method most of us learned at about age 13. This procedure relieves his patients—well-off, middle-aged women—of abdominal discomfort, unwanted thoughts, depression and every other symptom indicated by the term “hysteria.” Dr. Mortimer Granville (the handsome, vacant Hugh Dancy) joins Dalrymple’s practice, and starts keeping the company of the doctor’s daughter, Emily (Felicity Jones). Yet Granville is disturbed by the political convictions of Emily’s sister Charlotte, a midwife (a robustly miscast Maggie Gyllenhaal) who has no patience for the problems of these well-off bored ladies. Charlotte’s main cause is nursing the poor in the East End. Mortimer is good at his task, arraying the fashionable women on a table, with a fancy, fringed red velvet curtain over their exposed parts. Sadly, the doctor falls victim to carpal tunnel from wanking all of these dames. That’s when his wealthy inventor friend Edmund (Rupert Everett) comes up with an electrifying new invention. Sexy toast-of-the-West-End type Sheridan Smith mugs pleasurably, playing a painted, debauched maid nicknamed “Molly the Lolly.” Georgie Glen’s shriek of “Tally-ho!” at the capital moment is rich, particularly since she’s wearing her Scottish bonnet all through the experience. But director Wexler (Haskell’s niece) seems caught in the problem of a film addressing twin evils: poverty and the secondclass status of women. It’s as if she’s unable to take the second one seriously. She can’t visualize the sadness of lonely women enough to make the central theme in the film—their climactic moments of happiness—truly ticklish. ‘Hysteria’ opens Friday, June 15, at Rialto Cinemas in Sebastopol and Summerfield Cinemas in Santa Rosa.

RISING SON Volker StriďŹ&#x201A;er inventively

reinterprets the classic blues feel.

Homeland Volker Striflerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dynamic new album BY GABE MELINE

O

n any given week, you can walk into a nightclub in Sonoma County and hear a guitar player furiously replicating the same tired-and-true Albert King licks ingrained in the Clapton-helmed blues revivalistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rudder. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Volker StriďŹ&#x201A;er. StriďŹ&#x201A;er, who was born in Heidelberg and moved to the U.S. when he was 22, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much a Xerox product of the British Invasion as his own one-man German invasion. Sure, he likes Albert King, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some Mike BloomďŹ eld and Peter Green in there, too, mixed at various times with folk forms, hard rock and jazz invention. StriďŹ&#x201A;erâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s varied inďŹ&#x201A;uences come to the forefront on his new album, Let the Music Rise, which is slightly more blues-rooted than his previous record, The Dance Goes On, where the occasional radio-friendly love song was known to dwell.

The Volker Strifler Band play Saturday, June 16, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8:30pm. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.545.2343.

Music

But while most of this new album follows some variation on the classic 1-4-5 progression, no songs sound phoned in from the weekly jam session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going to Brownsvilleâ&#x20AC;? opens the album with a New Orleans street-band horn section and drums that clop in and out of tempo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been done several different ways,â&#x20AC;? StriďŹ&#x201A;er tells me of the oft-covered Sleepy John Estes composition, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I wanted to go after a more modern approach. I spent a lot of time on it just to get the right feel.â&#x20AC;? Likewise, the early Fleetwood Mac tune â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jigsaw Puzzle Bluesâ&#x20AC;? in StriďŹ&#x201A;erâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands becomes a tipsy tĂŞte-Ă -tĂŞte between Tom Waitsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rain Dogsâ&#x20AC;? and Springsteenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Billyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Circus Story,â&#x20AC;? with clanging hubcaps, bass notes played on the tuba and a saloon piano plank-planking away. But as usual, StriďŹ&#x201A;erâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own songwriting is the standout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Redemptionâ&#x20AC;? is a joyful burst of calypso horns, Los Lobos riffs, Buster Poindexter melodies and backup vocalsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a sure-ďŹ re dance ďŹ&#x201A;oor hit, despite StriďŹ&#x201A;erâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rather somber lyrics. Initially, StriďŹ&#x201A;er says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really wanted to get that West African highlife feel,â&#x20AC;? but the band fell into something entirely new, making for one of those happy accidents that works in the end. The backing players on Let the Music Rise were hand-picked by StriďŹ&#x201A;er and come in part from his old working band, with bassist Don Bassey and drummer Gary Silva; from his friends back in Germany, Claus Bubick and Stefan Bollack; and from his current group, with Steve Froberg, Ronnie Smith, Chip Roland, Carl Bowers and David Schrader. And though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been able to open for heroes like Johnny Winter and B. B. King (â&#x20AC;&#x153;We exchanged a few words, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a thrill just to be in the same room as him, let alone open for himâ&#x20AC;?), StriďŹ&#x201A;erâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still at his best in a small clubâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;bending those strings, singing in that perfect rasp and letting the music rise.

Mayer Hawthorne is classy. So classy, in fact, that Snoop Dogg singing about rear entry on their collaboration “Can’t Stop” is still somehow classy. Yes, this unlikely computer science major from South Detroit revives soul so well that the head of his former label thought his samples were re-edits of old songs upon first hearing them. Although his sound isn’t necessarily new, Mayer Hawthorne takes ’60s and ’70s soul and recontextualizes it into something original, something that sticks. His latest album, How Do You Do, for example, was well received by critics not because of its retro sound but because it took all that Motown nostalgia and channeled it into extremely well-written, updated songs. When he plays at the Uptown Theatre in Napa this month, he’s sure to extend this metaphorically in his dress; instead of going old-school all the way, he’ll likely wear a thriftstore suit coupled with fresh Air Jordans. Though his lyrics aren’t much deeper than the skin of the women he often sings about, his rhythms and falsetto are where the music’s at. Mayer Hawthorne endears listeners while getting groovy on Sunday, June 17, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 7pm. $28. 707.259.0123.—Jay Scherf

A Lil’ Lower Santa Rosa Lowriders keep the culture rolling Ramon Contreras’ 1984 Coup de Ville is a cobalt-blue exhibition on wheels. The Caddy’s flawless candy-colored paint job and custom-chrome trim shimmer in the afternoon sun. Proudly displayed in the rear window is a plaque reading “Santa Rosa Style,” framed by wispy pinstripe graphics. His personalized license plate tops it all off: 707AREA. As Santa Rosa Style car club president and founder, Contreras has been revamping lowrider cars since his first ride at the age of 16. He’s now passing on to his son this American tradition of craftsmanship, rich in pride and dedication. “Lowriding has always been a family affair. We bring in the younger generations; it’s part of our culture,” says Jeff Gonsalves, de facto club mentor and Lowrider OG. Established in 1995, Santa Rosa Style was one of only a few founding lowrider clubs in Santa Rosa; over two decades, that number’s jumped to almost a dozen. Check out the pristine rides at Santa Rosa Style’s third annual car show and picnic hosted by DJ Rob Cervantes, with Santa Rosa rapper Doc Holiday and special guests, on Saturday, June 16, at Youth Community Park. 1275 Fulton Road, Santa Rosa.

For the week of June 13

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for your right hand to ďŹ nd out what your left hand has been doing lately, and vice versa. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been attending to their separate agendas for a while, and now it would be wise to have them work together more closely. As they get reacquainted, a bit of friction would be understandable. You may have to serve as a mediator. Try to get them to play nicely with each other for a while before jumping into the negotiations about how best they can cooperate in the future. And be very ďŹ rm with them: no slapping or ďŹ ghting allowed. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20)

0GG "MM7BQPSJ[FST

Some relationships that you call â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendshipsâ&#x20AC;? may be little more than useful connections or status boosters or afďŹ liations that enhance your power and inďŹ&#x201A;uence. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shame in that. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a smart idea to make sure that at least some of your alliances are rooted primarily in pure affection. You need to exchange energy with people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serve your ambitions so much as they feed your soul. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to cultivate friendships like that. Take good care of those you have and be alert for the possibility of starting a new one.

GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20)

Do you remember what you were doing between July 2000 and June 2001? Think back. Did anything happen then that felt like a wild jumpstart or a series of epiphanies or a benevolent form of shock therapy? Were you forcibly dislodged from a rut by an adversary who eventually became an ally? Did you wake up from a sleepy trance you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know you had been in? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing that at least some of those experiences will be returning in the coming months, but on a higher octave this time.

CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22)

Author Steven Covey describes your â&#x20AC;&#x153;circle of concernâ&#x20AC;? as everything youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned with or worried about. Your â&#x20AC;&#x153;circle of inďŹ&#x201A;uence,â&#x20AC;? on the other hand, is anything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within your ability to change right now. For example, you may have general long-term questions or anxieties about the future of your health. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your circle of concern. But your circle of inďŹ&#x201A;uence contains speciďŹ c actions you can take to affect your health today, like eating good food, getting enough sleep and doing exercise. What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m seeing for you, Cancerian, is that the coming weeks will be an excellent time to spend less time in your circle of concern and more in your circle of inďŹ&#x201A;uence. Stop fantasizing about what may or may not happen, and simply take charge of the details that will make a difference.

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wild zoo about two hours northwest of Seattle. After paying your fee, you can drive your car through acres of land where large animals are allowed to roam free. When I took the tour, I stopped my rented Dodge Stratus by the side of the road to get a better look at a humongous buffalo with a humped back and a long woolly beard. It lumbered over to where I was parked and for the next ďŹ ve minutes thoroughly licked my windshield with its enormous purple tongue. My head was just inches away from its primal power, and yet I was safe and relaxed and perfectly amused. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if you had a comparable experience sometime soon, Leo.

VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22)

In the Biblical book of Genesis, Jacob had a dream of angels ascending and descending a ladder that went up to heaven. I recommend that you try to incubate a similar dream, or else do some meditations in which you visualize that scene. It would help prime your psyche for one of this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top assignments, which is to be adaptable as you go back and forth between very high places and very low places. Heaven and earth need to be better connected. So do the faraway and the closeat-hand, as well as the ideal and the practical. And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the right person for the job.

LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) Thomas Edison said something to the effect that a person who is thoroughly satisďŹ ed is probably a failure. I guess he meant that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not always pushing to make your life better, you must not have very high standards or passionate goals. While I can see the large grains of truth in that theory, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it applies in all casesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like for you right now, for instance. During the

upcoming grace period, it will make sense for you to be perfectly content with the state of your life just as it is. To do so wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make you lazy and complacent. Just the opposite, in fact: it will charge your psychic batteries and create a reservoir of motivational energy for the second half of 2012.

SCORPIO (October 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;November 21) Twentyfour-year-old actress Annalynne McCord has risen up in rebellion against what she calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfection requirement.â&#x20AC;? Lately she has been brazenly appearing in public without any make-up on. She has even encouraged paparazzi to snap photos of her in her natural state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not perfect,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK with me.â&#x20AC;? I nominate her to be your role model in the coming weeks, Scorpio. You will be able to stir up useful blessings for yourself by being loyal to the raw truth. You can gain power by not hiding anything. (And, yes, I realize that last statement is in conďŹ&#x201A;ict with the core Scorpionic philosophy.) Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my guarantee: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fun to be free of unrealistic images and showy deceptions.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) Nineteenth-century Russian novelist Ivan Turgenev once called his fellow novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pimple on the face of literature.â&#x20AC;? But more than a hundred years after that crude dismissal, Dostoyevsky is a much more highly regarded and inďŹ&#x201A;uential writer than Turgenev. Use this as inspiration, Sagittarius, if you have to deal with anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s judgmental appraisals of you in the coming days. Their opinions will say more about them than about you. Refresh your understanding of the phenomenon of â&#x20AC;&#x153;projection,â&#x20AC;? in which people superimpose their fantasies and delusions on realities they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see clearly. CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) Take a few deep breaths. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important not to get overly worked up about your recent diversion from the Truth and the Way. I mean itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like you sold heroin to high school students or dumped toxic waste into a mountain stream, right? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve incurred a minor karmic debt that will ultimately have to be repaid. And, yes, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been reminded that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow yourself to lower your standards even slightly. But I doubt any of it will matter in ďŹ ve yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially if you atone now. So please go ahead and give yourself a spanking, make a deďŹ nitive plan to correct your error and start cruising in the direction of the next chapter of your life story. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18) Have you ever tried to drink from a ďŹ rehose? The sheer amount and force of the water shooting out the end makes it hard to actually get any moisture in your mouth, let alone enjoy the process. On the other hand, it is kind of entertaining, and it does provide a lot of material to tell funny stories about later on. But are those good enough reasons to go ahead and do it? I say no. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I advise you, metaphorically speaking, to draw your sustenance from a more contained ďŹ&#x201A;ow in the coming week. Cultivate a relationship with a resource that gives you what you really need. PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20) The coming week will be an excellent time to declare your independence from anything that depresses you, obsesses you or oppresses you. You will attract help from unexpected sources if you take that brave action. At the same time, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a perfect moment to declare your interdependence with anything that ďŹ res up your imagination, stirs up smart hope or ďŹ lls you with a desire to create masterpieces. Be adventurous as you dream about blending your energies with the very best inďŹ&#x201A;uences.
