The Capitalist by Jeff Harding

Jeff Harding is a real estate investor and a writer on economics and finance. He is the former publisher of the Daily Capitalist, a popular economics blog. He is also an adjunct professor at SBCC. He blogs at anIndependentMind.com

What Do You Mean “I’m Ahead?”

O

n Inauguration Day, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. His inaugural address was stern, painting a bleak vision of America, yet promising to resurrect America from its “carnage.” The paramount theme of his address, which will be the defining issue of his administration, was to revitalize America by protecting it from foreign competition. He will metaphorically wall off America. “From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.” “We will follow two simple rules: buy American and hire American.” This echoes his campaign theme of foreign competition “stealing” American jobs and American companies. He said in his address, “Protection[ism] will lead to great prosperity and wealth.” Trump also appeared to set the tone for a type of Jacksonian democracy. “January 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.” As one with Jeffersonian-libertarian ideals, I find the concept of the devolution of power from a dominant federal government to the people appealing. But that is not what President Trump meant. What he meant is that he, Donald J. Trump, will bring deliverance to America. That is, a leader with vast powers, often unlimited by Congress or the judiciary, will redeem us from “carnage” by edict. Recall what he said in his nomination acceptance speech: “Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it.” President Trump set the bar high for his administration. He pledged to bring back jobs from abroad, revitalize our manufacturing industry, resurrect the middle-class, eliminate inner-city crime and poverty, rebuild America’s infrastructure, eradicate radical Islamic

terrorism, and unite Americans under one purpose. “We stand at the birth of a new millennium…” It is The Big Promise. One wonders why politicians make audacious claims that cannot possibly be attained. Yet President Trump does exactly that because he believes he can do it. That will be the tragedy of his administration. Edict, fiat, mandate, and orders cannot attain lofty goals. Only good policies based on good ideas (ideology) can do that. Trump is devoid of ideology and history abounds with good-intentioned, failed politicians whose “pragmatic”, “sensible” policies based on bad economics have yielded unintended, unseen, negative consequences. Trump follows a long line of populist leaders who use tired terms such as “America first” or the “Forgotten Man” to incite their followers. They promise big and deliver little. Trump makes a fundamental error in his plan to revitalize America. It is a fundamental error that people with little understanding of economics or history often make. Because of this fundamental error, his grandiose plan to wall off America and deliver us from “carnage” will fail. The history of the world is the best teacher of what has worked and what doesn’t. And history, including the history of America, tells us that free trade with other nations has brought freedom and prosperity at home, prosperity to trading partner nations who have engaged in it, and peace among trading nations. President Trump is committing this fundamental error by embarking upon a protectionist path that may bring higher costs for consumer goods, lower employment as higher costs leave consumers with less disposable income,

lower employment as our exporters are denied entry to foreign markets, a shortage of once plentiful goods supplied to us from imports and which America has no capacity to manufacture, decreased international opportunities for American manufacturers as other nations replace us in world trade, and rising world tensions as the order that benefited all trading nations is displaced by tariff walls. Trump’s nationalism and populism are based on economic myths. if you look at the actual data over the past 35 years since NAFTA (which Trump claims is the worst trade deal ever), the reality is quite different: • We are still major exporters;

• The middle-class “decline” is because they have gotten richer as they have ascended into higher income levels. These data can be easily verified by Google searches on public data bases such as the Federal Reserve and the Census Bureau. I would hope President Trump avails himself of these data. Protectionism will not revitalize American manufacturing; it will harm it. Rather than helping middle-income Americans, they will be poorer. Rather than creating jobs, more unemployment will result. Inner city crime and poverty will not be helped by protectionism. Rebuilding America’s infrastructure will result in wasteful boondoggles that will benefit a few but will make

One wonders why politicians make audacious claims that cannot be attained • We’ve gained more jobs than we’ve lost; • We have a thriving manufacturing sector – since NAFTA industrial production has increased 58%; • Capital investment into efficient automation has been the prime reason manufacturing jobs have declined – we now create 100% more in value with 37% fewer workers; • Nonmanufacturing jobs pay as well if not more than factory jobs. Or, to put it another way, we lost 7 million “good” jobs but gained 32 million jobs that pay equal or better wages; and

us poorer by diverting scarce economic resources to projects favored by the government. Obama’s $450 billion spending on infrastructure resulted in no lasting benefit to Americans. Trump’s Big Promise will fail. One can hope that much of what he says is empty rhetoric. That is most likely false hope. President Trump has shown he is no different than candidate Trump, with his vain, thin-skinned presidential Tweets. But, to be fair to President Trump and his new administration, wait 100 days and see what he does and ignore what he says. Let him prove us wrong.

The salvation of the human race...

T

he Patty Duke theme says it best: “Meet Cathy, whose lived most everywhere, from Zanzibar to Berkeley Square. But Patty’s only seen the sights a girl can see from Brooklyn Heights – what a crazy pair!” How beautiful and true. Human beings, in all their full spectrum variety, are herd animals (at least that’s my takeaway from the Patty Duke theme). Yes, we’ve walked on the moon and invented words such as “autoclave” and “ideation”, but these startling “top-offood-chain” magic tricks do not change the essential truth of our species; we all need to do and wear and say the same stuff lest we become vulnerable and exposed. This somewhat poignant state of being is almost surely the result of our anthropological hard-wiring. The human race has attained a truly bossy and sometimes benevolent dominion over all the realms of the Earth – the “houseplants and barnyard fowl and pets, the creeping things and beasts that hop and shout,” as Genesis so movingly phrases it. Our species has reached the top of the Chuck Darwin stepladder due in part to our individualized instinct for vanishing into the warm center of our roaming herd as it plies the tundra. When the wolves come loping relaxedly out of the woods, descend on us with bored wolf expressions and begin picking us off from the edges of the herd, does it profit one to be an outlier? Yes, if you consider being torn asunder without anesthesia a plus.

HIPness: Life Itself In modern sociological terms, what we’re talking about is a Herding

An Arlington facility fee will be added to each ticket price

Instinct Proclivity (HIP). It’s everything in the game of survival. Your public school has long infected your child with the toxic message that there is some majestic humanist value to being as individual as a snowflake, but all that really gets you is devoured. Let’s tell the children truth. We all need to be as anonymous and indistinguishable from one another as possible as we all make our way down the aptly named evolutionary Plain. Everyone is buying light-brown polyester pantsuits this month? Well, we may be the paragon of animals, but this month the paragons are in lightbrown polyester. And so on. Let’s look at a couple of familiar instances of HIP; 1. Our species-wide adoption of the flimsy, ridged down jacket, and 2. The habit among young men of spitting something out of the mouth in a gesture of salivary insouciance.

“Septuagenarians don’t come much hipper than George Takei.” The New York Post “One of the Internet’s 50 Most Fascinating People” Cosmopolitan Known around the world as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek, Takei’s story goes where few have gone before. From a childhood spent in a Japanese internment camp to becoming one of the country’s leading proponents of LGBTQ rights, Takei is a trailblazer who inspires online and off.

These jackets are everywhere. The stunning ubiquity of this ridged outerwear would be amusing if it wasn’t so central to protecting our viscera from toothy predation. The ridged jacket is lightweight and supple, and comes in sleeveless and sleevy varieties. Its horizontal ridges are closely spaced, such that the wearer somewhat resembles a bi-pedal armadillo. And it is mostly available in black and navy blue. ...continued p.20

Beer and Bloating in Las Vegas

The Las Vegas Strip is by far the most popular area in town. With a slew of casinos, shopping, and dining this area is the most vibrant part of Las Vegas and where many tourists spend the majority of their time. Each of the hotels has its own flare, but not all of them have Zach Rosen is a Certified Cicerone® and beer educator living in Santa Barbara. He uses his background in chemical engineering and the arts to seek out abstract expressions of beer and discover how beer pairs with life.

T

ourism is about personal style. Some people want to see all of the landmarks. Others just want to relax poolside with a drink in hand. Las Vegas is unique in that allows each person to find what they are looking for out of their trip. Whether it is sitting in a Parisian cafe, taking a ride down a Venetian canal or soaking in the azure skies of Rome, it is hard not to get lost in the magic of this town.

Visit Holstein’s Shakes and Buns within the casino for a great (and wellpriced) selection of exotic burgers, monstrous shakes, and range of craft beers. The restaurant has a large wooden bar with white-tiled walls and bottle lamps lighting their range of beers and spirits. A cartoon of Holstein’s cow mascot decorates the walls and

restaurant. The menu has imaginative burgers such as The Fun-Ghi, which is topped with forest mushrooms, caramelized onions, Gruyere cheese, frisée, and truffle mayo. The Rising Sun was a standout with a Kobe beef patty slathered in teriyaki glaze and adorned with nori furikake, crispy yam, spicy mayo, and a tempura avocado. It is highly recommended to add a fried egg on top. When paired with a Green Flash Le Freak Belgian IPA, the two make a potent mix of savory and sweet flavors. The restaurant has a few rotating draft beers and 14 core taps covering a range of craft breweries and beer styles. Public House in The Venetian is another spot to check out while along the Las Vegas Strip. Electronic lounge music plays softly along the deep mahogany interior and black-andwhite patterned stone floors with the warm glow of Edison bulbs providing some mood lighting. If on a budget, the dishes are of decent size and can be split between two people, especially if a side or two are added. The beer menu is presented on an iPad, which keeps their offerings up-to-date and allows guests to get more information on their various beers. ...continued p.18

he very same day as the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) 31 launches, the downtown eatery The Blue Owl inaugurates its first annual festival featuring the “worst movies of all time.” The entries – which were determined by the Blue Owl staff – will be screened (via projector, no less) at the trendy restaurant daily for 11 straight days February 1-11, which just so happens to coincide with SBIFF’s full run. So, while the fest’s best screen at all over downtown Santa Barbara at Metropolitan cinemas including several sidebars, each day of the Blue Owl’s

Bad Film Fest also features a different theme – Dance Movies on February 1, Awful Action of February 3, Shark! on February 4, and Sequels on February 7, to name a few. The flicks are foisted upon diners and imbibers all day and night while the Blue Owl is serving, along with free popcorn if the movies aren’t enough to make you choke. And the Owl goes SBIFF one better, adding an Awards Ceremony/Blue Owl barbecue off-site at the Imperial in Goleta on Sunday, February 12. Get details at the establishment’s Facebook page: www. facebook.com/BlueOwlSB.

he winter-time film series at UCSB’s Pollock Theater continues with one of the master of mystery’s masterpieces: Vertigo, the psychological thriller starring James Stewart as a police detective whose career is derailed by a traumatic incident in the line of duty, which leaves him suffering from acrophobia and vertigo. Following the 2 pm screening on Saturday, January 28, film preservationist James Katz and Tom Pollock, the Montecito-based former executive vice president of MCA and chairman of Universal Pictures, discuss the restoration of the film with Charles Wolfe, UCSB Professor of Film & Media Studies. Upcoming in the series are The Man Who Knew too Much (7 pm, February 2), Rebecca followed by a discussion with professor Tania Modleski, author

Lin Me Your Eyes

M

aya Lin was just 21 years old when she shocked the world by winning the blind competition to design the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Her controversial creation is now considered one of the most important and accessible public works of our time – the half-size touring version just visited Santa Barbara again last fall – while Lin has gone on to create many remarkable large-scale, sitespecific installations as well as intimate studio artworks, architectural pieces and even other landmark historic structures such as the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama. A recipient of the 2016 Presidential Medal of Freedom, Lin will discuss her current memorial project What is Missing?, which is a tribute to the planet and its vanished and endangered species, in a lecture at UCSB ...continued p.24

Mark spends much of his time wandering Santa Barbara and environs, enjoying the simple things that come his way. A show here, a benefit there, he is generally out and about and typically has a good time. He says that he writes “when he feels the urge” and doesn’t want his identity known for fear of an experience that is “less than authentic.” So he remains at large, roaming the town, having fun. Be warned.

The Wonder of it All

A

fortnight ago, I promised you some more news about the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF). I kind of wish I hadn’t done that, because – for the first time in months – I went to a whole bunch of shows over the last two weeks. Not only that, but most of them were really great, almost all at the very least a worthy evening of entertainment, and often much more than that as I was truly inspired several times. Alas, those reports will have to wait for later, as I’ve got to give you a little lowdown of SBIFF this issue. Enjoy.

Oscar Report Card Lord knows SBIFF head honcho Roger Durling doesn’t need any more kudos to keep up his confidence level, but the fact is he’s surely turned in one of his finest years yet in terms of booking the Academy Award favorites to first receive some metal statuettes from our fun festival. Here’s the deets with the thespians: La La Land Emma Stone, the oddson Best Actress favorite to canoodle with Oscar come the night of the Academy Awards, obtains our 2017 Outstanding Performers of the Year Award on Friday, February 3, along with co-star Ryan Gosling, who is tabbed as third most likely to win among the Best Actor nominees. The guy expected to win the Oscar in that category, Manchester by the Sea’s Casey Affleck, collects SBIFF’s Cinema Vanguard Award on Sunday, February 5. Denzel Washington, who is pegged to have the second best shot at the Academy Award, might have to make do with SBIFF’s Modern Master Award, the fest’s most prestigious honor, for his role Fences. Affleck, by the way, shares SBIFF’s Cinema Vanguard Award with his co-star, Michelle Williams, who the Oscarologists (who knew you could make a living doing such a thing?) have as the runner-up for Best Supporting Actress. The prognosticators have Moonlight’s Naomie Harris – who’ll share in SBIFF’s 2017 Virtuosos Award on February 4 – as the third-most likely to win. (Alas, expected winner Viola Davis won’t be here in 2017, but she did get a SBIFF award just

a few years ago). Meanwhile, back at Best Actress, we will honor Golden Globe winner Isabelle Huppert (Elle) with the Montecito Award on Wednesday, February 8, even though the French star is only expected to finish third. In the Supporting Actor category, SBIFF’s 2017 Virtuosos Award winners also include favorite Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and predicted runner-up Dev Patel (Lion), while Montecito’s much-loved Jeff Bridges (the Oscarologists say he’s got the third-best odds) gets honored for Hell or High Water.

FINDING HOME

N

ow in its fith year, well-known local nonprofit Girls Rock SB is excited to be celebrating the opening of its new permanent home. Girls Rock SB offers music programs to girls of all ages; their mission is to encourage self-empowerment and self-confidence through music education and creative expression. They offer after-school and summer programs, as well as multiple opportunities for performance. While the organization’s main focus is on music, they also offer two additional education tracks, including photo/film and music journalism. For the past five years, the program has been operated out of multiple locations around town, as well as numerous classrooms throughout the county. On January 16, they celebrated the grand opening of their new permanent space to call home. At 810 East Gutierrez Street in Unit D, the space is conveniently located near

both Santa Barbara High School and Santa Barbara Junior High. Founder Jen Baron couldn’t be more thrilled. Her dream and the dreams of the girls in her programs are steadily all coming to life. They have three studio spaces, used as practice rooms and as classrooms, offering 35 classes each week throughout the school year. Baron says that the new space allows much more flexibility and opportunity for program expansion, and allows the girls to come and go as their schedules permit. They serve girls ranging in age from 5-17 years old, and high school juniors and seniors can do internships at Girls Rock and receive community service hours for participation in their programs. During the summer months, the organization revs up even more, offering summer camps in four different cities throughout the Central Coast, bringing in about 30 additional instructors for those programs. Getting to know Jen Baron, you’ll learn that she’s an incredibly passionate and talented person. She will be the last to tell you about herself, but in addition to running a burgeoning nonprofit, Jen is also a professional songwriter who currently works with Sony and writes for various artists. The 36-year-old plays all the rock band instruments and sings, and has been writing music since she was eight. You can listen to some of her music on her Soundcloud page at: www.soundcloud.com/ jenbaronmusic. Also new to the program are two new exciting partnerships. One is with Santa Maria Juvenile Detention Center this coming summer. Through this four-day summer camp, Girls Rock SB will be hosting workshops and bands every day at the lunch hour. This was Jen’s idea: she says she’s always looking for parts of the community that are being overlooked or underserved. Girls Rock SB has also partnered with The Village, a low-income apartment complex in Santa Barbara. They will provide music lessons at The Village’s music lab and tutoring center for kids who live there. This program will take place on one day each week during the school year, starting this spring. Thanks to strong partnerships with the Santa Barbara Bowl, which has supported them since the beginning, and more recently, the Country Music Association (CMA), they are able to offer financial aid for all of their programs. Currently, about 40 percent of girls receive financial aid. One of the things that Girls Rock has done so well is bring together girls of diverse backgrounds. Girls of various ages, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds come together, united by music and creativity. It is said that music is the universal language and Girls Rock SB seems to be, above all else, providing a beautiful example of that simple truth. A few words from some of the participants in the Girls Rock teen program, Amplify: Girls Rock has helped me set goals for my life and come out of my shell. I always told myself that learning to play guitar, or anything, was an impossible dream, but in just eight weeks, they had me onstage performing both originals and covers to a sold-out audience. Now I teach others close to me how to play guitar and ukulele, and dream of becoming a professional musician. No matter what, I will always be grateful to the Girls Rock program for giving me the skills and confidence to accomplish anything I set my mind to. Rock on! – Bridgette, age 15 I originally got involved in Girls Rock because I wanted an environment to practice drums and keyboard in. I soon discovered an amazing and loving community of opportunities and fun. I have learned so many instruments and made so many lifetime friendships! I’m so thankful for getting to be a part of it. – Kalista, age 14

flavor that is light on the clove aroma typical for this type of wheat beer. The IPA is an English style, which means it has a more prominent malt character than American versions. Their IPA has an earthy and herbal hop aroma with a honeyed toast flavor. The Stout is in the Dry-Irish style with a deep roasty finish. Sin City’s rotating brew was a Double IPA with a gentle citrus and pine character and some caramel malt character.

Further Afield

Sin City Brewing Co. has four tap rooms along the Las Vegas Strip

The beer selection is well-rounded, featuring brews from around the globe and even some local options such as Joseph James Citra Rye or Hop Nuts Hopathon IPA. Unibroue’s La Fin Du Monde goes particularly well with their lobster mac-and-cheese appetizer. The beer has flavors of red apple and praline that complements the buttery lobster and accents the bits of crispy

prosciutto peppered on top of the dish. Red Headed Stranger by Nevada-based Brasserie Saint James is a red saison with a wheat bread flavor and a hint of strawberry that goes nicely alongside the herb-roasted chicken with pork belly and fingerling potato hash. If splitting, try adding a side of roasted Brussels Sprouts with pearl onions and smoked bacon and their superfood slaw with

Of (Ctenocephalides canis) cat fleas and human fleas (Pulex irritans), each has its preferred hosts. The human flea prefers the blood of humans and pigs. Cat and dog fleas prefer cats and dogs, though children can become infested when pets sleep or rest on the same bed.

mustard dressing. Beer Park by Budweiser is a surprisingly nice space to grab a brew. The open rooftop restaurant and bar is located next to the Paris Hotel. The spacious and unclosed environment makes for a great place to people-watch as the crowds stroll down the strip. The beer selection largely pulls from the extended family of AB Inbev-owned brands such as Goose Island, Elysian, and Golden Road, though there are a few local choices on the menu like the Joseph James’s I’m Out Imperial Stout as well. If you are hungry, their menu covers a lot of classic American dishes and at good prices. Sin City Brewing Co. is one of the most established breweries in the area and it has several tap rooms located along the strip, including one at the Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s. This small bar offers the chance to grab a pint in between shopping. Their other three locations in the Miracle Mile Shops, Harmon Corner, and Grand Canal Shoppes provide similar opportunities. Light, a premium light lager, has a touch of grain in the aroma. The Amber is a clean and balanced example of an Oktoberfest with a hint of bready malts. The Weisse is a German-style Hefeweizen with a smooth banana

One of the unique things about Vegas is the ability to drink openly on the streets. There are some intricacies to the law and such places as the Las Vegas Strip or The Fremont Street Experience has its own rules due to their locations, so it is worth looking into the laws before sauntering down the street with bottle in hand. Main Street Station is located near Fremont and is a charming casino with Victorian décor and a western saloon flare. They promote themselves as a casino, brewery, and hotel, with their Triple 7 Restaurant & Brewery located just off the casino floor. The beers are pretty straightforward but well-priced ($2.50 pints at the casino bar) in a city that is known for its high prices. In addition to a seasonal brew, they have six mainstays: High Roller Gold, Royal Red, Marker Pale Ale, Double Down Hefeweizen, Black Chip Porter, and Carlsbad IPA. The porter was of note with a touch of mocha in the aroma and a clean finish. While the restaurant has a full food menu, the hotel’s Garden Court Buffet (hey, if you’re in Vegas you have to go to at least one buffet) is one of the more popular buffets in its price range. The food choices cover the globe, offering Mexican, Italian, and Asian cuisines among others. You can also purchase their house amber and blonde there, which is a nice change from the Bud and Coors typically served in these dining options. Las Vegas is a city of many tastes. With their array of world-class hotels, eateries, and bars, it offers an experience that can suit any personal style. 

Join us for some warm Irish hospitality, authentic food and excellent pints.

Those who incompletely adopt the current HIP, acquiring the ridged jacket in red, say, are quickly plucked from the periphery of the herd and noisily devoured. One day you will see, among the placid sea of pedestrians in their ridged black and navy blue jackets, a few clueless outliers in red or purple ridges. How did these doomed snowflakes not get the memo, you wonder. It doesn’t matter. Within several days, they will have been removed from the general population. That is the nature of nature. Is nature cruel? No, nature is but a mindless, autonomically self-improving machine, a Blind Watchmaker, as

typing behind the wheel of a moving car, for instance. Typically the driver’s last message to the world is something like “I’m typing and I’m driving.” This is the future. Even you missed it, Nostradamus, and who can blame you?

Mourning is Broken There is, anymore, a helpful sameness to our grief, too. In the wake of these fiery text-based crashes, the heartbroken are known to express their unspeakable grief through social media. A little cartoon of a bawling face with cartoon water splashing out of the eyes is today’s most typical gesture of

How did these doomed snowflakes not get the memo, you wonder soft-spoken Creationism complainant Richard Dawkins calls it. That the Blind Watchmaker hates red or purpleridged jackets is inexplicable, and can be chalked up as another of the infrequently entertaining Mysteries of Evolution.

Sputum Cuties At the other end of the HIP spectrum—the less benevolent end— is the haunting phenomenon of the Sputum Cutie. All the males are doing it this year, and it is maddening. You’ve seen this guy walking our streets and sidewalks in his pricey blue jeans and shades. His hands are in his pockets and he is staring straight ahead with a studied nonchalance as he strides, Starsky-like, down the street. Without warning a strangely coherent wad of goomba loops balletically from his unmoving yap and falls to earth in a tiny ballistic arc. This deadpan fashion-spitting is all the rage. Still, one is compelled to ask; what and why are you spitting, spit men? May I approach you and ask that very question without you pushing me down to the ground with a hand on my startled face? “You there! What the hell did you just spit out?! Why are you people spitting all the time? By g*d, I’ve got to know!” You see, our herd’s evolutionary perch atop all the Earth’s dominions and stuff – it has come with a price tag. Our opposable thumbs and Darwinapproved tool making have driven us into a cul-de-sac. Combine our reckless ingenuity with our desire to all do the same thing and you’ve got a looming extinction event. These are the days a person can go to his or her death while

consolation. Sometimes we are shocked by a loved one’s “heartbreaking tweet” and are obliged to reach out with a little yellow face contorted with sorrow and flying water. “Oh, my God… the love of my life just died...”. Concerned and stricken friends of the bereaved will have the unpleasant task of selecting the perfect little yellow cartoon face to represent their sympathy and support. If we had half a mind left as a culture, the very phrase “heartbreaking tweet” would give us pause. Alas, we do not have half a mind as a culture, and neither has this Gilded Age of witless advances managed to stamp out world hunger or eradicate poverty. On the other hand, our laudable tendency to mass sameness makes it easier to suffer this foolishness. So, do practice your fashion-spitting. It’s got to look very natural, not like Jack Elam or some other grizzled cowboy actor theatrically squirting mouth juice into a spittoon. It’s gotta look cool. If you are wearing a lightweight black or navy-blue ridged jacket while casually spitting into the Queen Anne Palms along State Street, all the better. Remember, these jackets come in sleeved and sleeve-free versions. Either one will cloak you when the wolves come out. Celebrate your uniqueness in absolute quietude or you’re screwed. Tell the kids, too. Again, the Patty Duke theme offers helpful guidance: “Where Cathy adores a minuet, the Ballet Russe and crepe suzette, our Patty loves to rock and roll, a hot dog makes her lose control – what a wild duet! But they’re cousins! Identical cousins!” Live it, people. For the good of the species.

CREATIVE CHARACTERS ADAM PHILLIPS

by Zach Rosen

A

band is very much like a family. Oftentimes, the closer the musicians are to one another, the better they perform. For Adam Phillips, his family just got a whole lot bigger with his newly formed group, Folk Orchestra. Adam grew up in New York singing with his family in the church choir. After spending his childhood around music, he decided to go to State University of New York at Fredonia in 1999 for a BFA in musical theater. Upon graduating, he spent a year in Buffalo, New York, but decided to move out to Santa Barbara to be closer to his sister, who was living here with her family. Within two weeks of his arrival, Adam was singing at the SB Mission and had several other gigs lined up. After meeting his future wife his first year in Santa Barbara, it was clear that this town was going to be his home. Since then, Adam has taught voice and guitar and taken on various director roles around town including music director at Santa Barbara Revels and director of Music and Worship at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Goleta. In school, Adam had mostly focused

on voice and some flute. He had played around with guitar in junior college but didn’t actively practice until coming out to Santa Barbara, when he began rehearsing and learning different instruments in his free time. Over the years, Adam has formed several bands and musical groups including the Mission Creek Trio, but with various members moving away he decided to combine the different projects into

the Adam Phillips Band. This group allowed Adam to fuse his love for folk and classical music and play with a wide range of talented musicians. His newest project, Folk Orchestra, is taking that passion one step further. Many of the musicians who perform at the larger Santa Barbara venues are not from the area, often coming from Los Angeles or the Bay Area. Adam wanted to form a group of principal musicians from Santa Barbara who would feel like a large local family band and embrace a musician’s love of playing with other musicians. Adam had the idea for Folk Orchestra last summer and after discussing the concept to other musicians and hearing their positive responses, they decided to turn the idea into reality. The orchestra is composed of 26 musicians and covers a whole range of folk and classical instruments. There is a full contingent of classical strings consisting of violins, violas, cellos, and a double bass, in addition to a variety of folk instruments including bagpipes, mandolins, acoustic guitars, Irish whistles, harp, and flute. For their first concert, they will be focusing on traditional Celtic music from Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, with pieces such as “The Skye Boat Song”, and “The Star of County Down”, and even newly

2 7 JA N UA RY – 1 0 F E B R UA RY |

orchestrated music by Adam. Folk Orchestra’s first performance will be at the Chapel of the El Presidio de Santa Barbara on Sunday, March 26, at 4 pm. They had their first rehearsal this past Thursday, but where do you get 26 eclectic musicians together to rehearse? From now until their performance in March, Folk Orchestra will be practicing every Thursday at 8 pm inside Telegraph Brewing. Adam thought Telegraph Brewing’s dedication to using as many local and Californian ingredients as possible was a nice fit for this group of Santa Barbara musicians. Plus, who wouldn’t want to have a jam session in a brewery? The public is invited to join the musicians each week in Telegraph to grab a goblet of one of their many tasty brews and listen to Folk Orchestra practice. This experience offers a chance for the community to come together and enjoy our local artisans. Whether it is beer or music, these are the people who are helping make our city a rich and vibrant cultural landscape. And if you like what you hear, you can always buy a band member a beer! Go to folkorchestrasb.com for more information on their first concert, or visit facebook.com/folkorchestrasb for weekly updates.

be part of the Variety Artisans Awards on Monday, February 6. While we have yet to hear confirmation, it’s an absolute lock that La La Land’s Damien Chazelle, Moonlight’s Barry Jenkins, and Manchester’s Kenneth Lonergan – who are rated as first, second, and third most likely to win the Oscar – will be sharing the stage at the Arlington for

SBIFF’s Outstanding Director of the Year Award on February 7, and all three of those films’ writers co-favorites to nab Academy Awards, are expected for the It Starts With the Script panel on February 3. La La Land’s other producers will likely be at the Movers & Shakers panel on February 3 before almost certainly joining Chazelle on

stage for the final awards, Best Picture, on February 26.

Got All That? Sometimes, Oscar comes up with some surprises on his way to the awards ceremony, but don’t count on too many shockers this year. And I don’t know about Durling, but if I had his knack

for picking winners, I’d surely have laid down some bets in Vegas while the odds were still fairly reasonable. A paycheck or two from the Sentinel and I could have collected enough to pay for a month’s rent. You know what I’m saying?

Focus on the Films As far as the actual movies go, I don’t get to see enough previews to make any sort of informed recommendations based on personal experience. But I can help in a few areas. First, the entries from local Santa Barbara filmmakers look especially strong this year. Montecito’s Leslie Zemeckis directs Mabel, Mabel, Tiger Trainer, the story of Mabel Stark, the world’s first female tiger trainer who claimed her love for her tigers was so great that she wanted to die in the ring. Byl Carruthers helmed Seraphonium Live!, filmed last year at the Marjorie Luke Theater, where more than 40 Santa Barbara musicians perform the genre-bending debut album by Monte Schulz (son of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz). Also, I can point out a few films that have recognizable names in their casts. American indie Different Flowers, about feuding sisters who embark on an adventure after one helps the other run out on her big Kansas City wedding, stars Shelley Long, who played Diane on Cheers. Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon series) has the lead role in The Good Catholic, about a small-town priest more than anything, until he meets his match in Jane. Catherine Keener and Jeanne Tripplehorn co-star in Little Pink House, another USA premiere that is based on a true story about a small-town nurse who defends her home and the blue-collar neighborhood she loves against whitecollar power brokers. In the docs, a bunch of famous actors appear in John G. Avildsen: King of the Underdogs, which examines the Oscarwinning director of Rocky, The Karate Kid, and Save the Tiger. All of the above, by the way, are world premieres. Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, Inception, Batman Begins) heads the cast for the Japanese ensemble thriller, Rage (Ikari), which makes its American debut at SBIFF. Doing the same is Window Horses, a Canadian animated film starring the voices of Ellen Page, Sandra Oh, and Shohreh Aghdashloo, among others. Hey, I’m outta room. You wanna know more? Check SBIFF’s expansive website at www.sbiff.org. Or just wander down State Street and ask the most bleary-eyed people you meet what movie they recommend. It’s as good a system as anything else.

Uncanny Keaney

I

n what is surely a timely talk given last weekend’s protest marches, Westmont College history professor Dr. Heather Keaney explores women’s activism in Turkey and Egypt in the 1920s and 1930s, with a focus on the Egyptian Feminist Union and the Turkish Women’s Union. Keaney, who graduated from Westmont before earning a Master’s and Ph.D. from UCSB, published the book Medieval Islamic Historiography: Remembering Rebellion in 2013, and currently teaches such courses as “The Age of Islamic Empires”, “The Modern Middle East”, and “Women in the Middle East”. The free lecture – at 2 pm Saturday at Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum – will address how women participated in the struggle for independence and the tensions that arose between prioritizing women’s liberation or national liberation.

Keeping up with the Joneses

R

obin and Robert Jones have lived part-time in the village of Molyvos, on the island of Lesbos, Greece, for 42 years, and were there in 2015 when the island became a flashpoint for the refugee crisis sweeping Europe and Asia. In their new book, The Refugee Crisis: Through the Eyes of the Children, Robin’s photographs and Robert’s narrative tell a compelling story of families fleeing from cities and towns where they feared for their lives, putting a human face on this unprecedented exodus. They’ll give brief remarks and sign copies at 7 pm Tuesday, January 31, at Chaucer’s Books. It’s free.

Picture This

D

avid Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed picturebook creators in the world. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards both here and abroad. Three of the ones he both wrote and illustrated became instant classics when they won the industry’s most prestigious award, the Caldecott Medal: Tuesday in 1992, The Three Pigs in 2002, and Flotsam in 2007. The latter made him only the second person in the award’s long history to have won as many as three times. Wiesner and his work are the subject of a major exhibition opening at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art on Sunday, January 29. This show encompasses almost 80 objects, and is the first to contextualize Wiesner’s art through the inclusion of work by other artists who influenced him while also focusing on the artist’s creative process. So the exhibit will also feature original work by earlier masters of wordless picture books: the Belgian born Frans Masereel (1889–1972), the German artist Otto Nückel (1888–1955), and American wordless book specialist Lynd Ward (1905–1985). Wiesner was also deeply affected by comic book legends Jack Kirby (1917–1994) and Jim Steranko (b. 1938), best-known for their work for Marvel. The show and associated catalog also includes original art by Salvador Dalí, Joseph Stella, and Charles Sheeler, while the catalog features full-color plates of Wiesner’s original watercolors from his earliest artistic successes to his most recent project: his first graphic novel, Fish Girl, scheduled for publication in March.

Wiesner himself will be in town the day before the official opening for a lecture where he will discuss his art and career, guiding the audience through his unique approach to wordless storytelling. The 2:30 pm event on Saturday, January 28, costs $10 ($6 seniors, free for museum members) and will be followed by a book signing. Feel free to bring along personal copies of his books for him to inscribe or purchase one in the museum store. The picture book artist also returns to the museum of Thursday, March 9, at 5:30 pm for an artist-led tour through the galleries and another book signing, this time for Fish Girl.

Museum Madness

T

he same day that David Wiesner & The Art of Wordless Storytelling opens, January 29, is also when the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA) unveils its free mobile app to accompany and enhance the visitor experience of the new show and many in the future. Featuring new content created specifically for this exhibition, and utilizing technology from mobile technology for the arts specialist OnCell, the app augments the visual aspects of the exhibition with audio recordings of the artist himself describing his artistic process, techniques and approach, as well as commentary on his background and influences. The short audio clips are grouped by section within the exhibition, so creating your own self-guided tour just got a lot easier and more meaningful. The app also includes video interviews with the artist and selected images from the exhibition. Swipe to your app store forthwith because the SBMA’s new one is available for free on iPhone and Android devices, and as a Web app. New content automatically updates within the app. Details at www.sbma.net/app.

Museum Free-for-All SPECIALIZING IN ROLEX • CARTIER • TAG HEUER 30 YEARS EXTERIENCE • ALL BRANDS

But wait! There’s more. That same day – yes, January 29 – the Santa Barbara Museum of Art will participate in SoCal Museums 12th annual Museums Free-for-All Day, when more than 30 museums in the Southern California area drop admission charges for all to nada. SBMA is the only one in Santa Barbara participating this year, but seeing as the dang place will likely be crowded with folks clamoring to see the new David Wiesner exhibit and accidentally running into one another while they toy with their shiny new SBMA apps – talk about a free-for-all! – you might instead want to skip town altogether and head down south to check out other participating institutions such as Annenberg Space for Photography,

California Science Center, The Paley Center for Media, Hammer Museum, La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, or even the Kidspace Children’s Museum, since Santa Barbara’s MOXI has yet to open its doors, free or otherwise. For more information, visit www.SoCalMuseums. org. Anyway, you can still see the Wiesner for free on 1st Thursday, February 2, when SBMA will do its thing in the Family Resource Center from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. That’s when you can draw a story in colored pencil using a collaged detail from one of Wiesner’s own illustrations as a “story-starter” for your imagined characters, plot, and setting. Who knows? Your kid might be the next picture-book artist hero!

College’s Canadian Capers

M

ost local arts organizations pretty much shut down during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, figuring that a good percentage of their audience is off taking in the indies, feasting on foreign films, watching premieres or dabbling in determined documentaries – when they’re not ogling an almost obscene number of Oscar nominees receiving awards and participating in panels. Then there’s UCSB Arts & Lectures, whose organizers might be thinking something like “Festival? What festival?” judging by the fact that they’ve booked two major events – downtown, no less – for the heart of SBIFF week. Canada’s boundariesbusting Ballet BC mocks misogyny with its February 3 program featuring works by three internationally acclaimed female choreographers (8 pm; Granada; $39$39), while French-Canadian cirque troupe 7 Fingers of the Hand’s Cuisine & Confessions on February 6 features eyepopping choreography, pulsating music, humor, and spectacle fused with the delicious smells and sights of baking with a treat for the senses (7 pm; Granada; $20-$64).

position at Pixar Animation Studios. Since then, she has thrown herself whole-heartedly into filmmaking. The movie marks Hodges’s debut as a producer, working in tandem with her co-producer, Kyle Parker. Twinsburg is the story of a set of identical twin brothers who reconnect at the world’s largest gathering of twins in the small town of Twinsburg, Ohio. One of the coolest things about this film is that it was shot live at the event itself (yes, it’s a real festival in the real town of Twinsburg, which was founded by, yes, a real set of twin brothers). The festival, Twins Days, brings in thousands of pairs of twins, which allowed for impromptu casting and filming of live events for the short film. Recalling the fantastic chaos of this feat, Hodges says, “the spontaneous slapdashery of the project was challenging, but I think what makes (the movie) feel genuine.” Although technically a comedy, the film deals with the real struggle with identity that many twins face and which the director and his twin brother have long grappled with, so much so as to inspire him to write the picture. In it, the twin brothers struggle with their relationship, trying to make sense of the complex nature of what “twinship,” really means. Kate and Tess Hodges

play the characters, June and Nancy, who befriend the Garrity brothers’ characters, Jerry and Paul at the Twins Days Festival. Director and actor, Joe Garrity, came by this film honestly, being, as he is, an identical twin. A Brooklyn-based writer, filmmaker, and improviser, Joe explains that the movie was based on his actual relationship with his twin brother, Phil Garrity, and that creating the film together became a way for them to mend a somewhat ravaged relationship. The brothers had made films together before, but when they came across the Twins Days Festival, Garrity said he knew that he’d landed on something important. He explains, “I grew up making movies with my twin brother, Phil, and when we first visited Twinsburg, Ohio, in August 2011 during the annual Twins Days Festival, I knew I had found our next project.” “The story was very different then,” Garrity explains, “but what I discovered amidst the parades, pageants, and even experimental research, was the setting of a film I knew I needed to make, an authentic story of twinship.” During the multi-year course of its production, the Garrity brothers went through some extremely trying challenges, including Phil’s sudden diagnosis with a

rare bone cancer that threatened his life. The sickness and his horrific treatment process revealed many new layers to the brothers’ relationship, and as a result, the film too. Joe talks about the challenge of finding a resolution for the film, which they found in the 11th hour, the night before the final reshoot. It was, as Joe describes, not until they found healing and resolution in their actual lives, that the characters in the film could do the same. “I was telling a story about grief, a revelation that I couldn’t have understood without facing it, head on – without diving in,” Garrity writes in an essay for Independent Magazine. “In exploring this other identity through filmmaking, I became more in tune with my own.” He muses about the nature of twin identity and the assumptions

about closeness between twins that is essentially superimposed upon them, regardless of their actual relationship. He asks questions about how twins make sense of individuality, deal with constant identity mistakes, as well as the impact that separation has, in its varied forms. The movie has already raked in numerous notable awards and accolades including: Best Narrative Short at the Napa Valley Film Festival; Best Comedy at the Taos Shortz Film Festival; and Best Short film at the Alameda International Film Festival. Not to be missed, Twinsburg can be viewed on Thursday, February 9, at 8:40 pm at Metro 4, and Saturday, February 11 at 5:40 pm at Metro 4, at which filmmakers Kate and Tess Hodges will be present for a talk back.

IT’S TIME TO MULTI-TASK

S

anta Barbara is about to be overrun with film festival fanatics, and that’s fine. Film lovers are also art lovers, and there inevitably will be some downtime to go and explore our city. They just might run into some art! And faithful readers of this column already know how vibrant our art scene is at the moment, and where to go to see it (and hopefully buy it). First Thursday is coming up, and in fact, it starts early enough that you could do the rounds and still get to the Arlington to see some celebs walk down the red carpet. That’s some multi-tasking right there, folks. SHARK MONTH

A

t last month’s group show at Breakfast (711 Chapala), one wall sculpture stood out from the paintings: Lorien Stern’s colorful, cartoony ceramic shark head, replete with pointy teeth. Now she gets her own show, so expect even more sharks, from great whites to hammerheads, in all sizes and colors. She will also have standing ceramics featuring non-shark concerns, T-shirts, and much more. Through April, with opening reception, 6 to 10 pm. Thursday, February 2. www.lorienstern.com/ LET’S GET NAKED

I

t’s not often good ol’ SB has an exhibition featuring the human body in all its birthday suit splendor, let alone photos of nude men. (Can we just admit we’re a little prudish?) Greg Gorman is best-known as a celebrity portrait photographer who has shot everyone from David Bowie to Barbra Streisand. But his male nudes and non-celeb portraits are a more personal project, and just as glamorous. The show at Seahorse Gallery (12 Helena Ave.) opens Friday, February 3 (reception 5 to 8 pm) and runs through through the month (and beyond). The photographer will be there for the opening, signing copies of his new book, Private Works. NOT GIVING UP HOPE

S

ome of us are sad to see Obama leave the White House, and Patricia Clarke will be showing a selection of her photos of the former president’s visit to Santa Barbara in 2007. “Hold Hope” will show through the end of February at her studio (410 Palm Ave.) in Carpinteria, and the exhibition will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union.

First up is David Mark Lane’s “Primitive Digital” at Abolish Blandness Gallery, exploring Lane’s past five years of working in the digital realm. Apart from the 500 or so works on screen, there will be works on paper, cloth, metal, and canvas, through the end of the month. Plus he’ll be holding workshops on digital art, every Saturday of February, 1 to 4 pm. Opening reception 5 to 8 pm on February 2. Elizabeth Folk premieres “Those Legs, Though!” the performance artist’s solo show, also opening that night, is so far a mysterious event, with a photo on the invite of a porcelain pig and some bird seed. What does it mean? (Life skill aside: ask this question to yourself once a week). TWO NEW TO HANDLE

S

BCC’s art department welcomes two new instructors this semester with a duo exhibition entitled “Office of Loss Control”. Stephanie Washburn’s photography places objects between the viewer and a flat-screen TV, which then comment on or obscure the message being broadcast. Both dreamlike and humorous, these works are definitely work checking out. Her workmate, Armando Ramos, sculpts large works that also comment on pop culture in odd, disturbing ways.

F

ran Puccinelli passed away in December from Parkinson’s, leaving Santa Barbara county with one less visionary. At the height of her career, Fran and husband Keith were vital parts of Carpinteria’s business and and community, and while he was (and still is) the artist in the couple, she owned the gallery, followed an interest in outsider art, and crafted textiles. Their life together will be celebrated through “Puccinality: the Handmade Life of Fran and Keith Puccinelli”, on view at UCSB’s College of Creative Studies, February 1 – March 4 with a reception on Saturday, February 4, from 2 to 4 pm.

he beautiful watercolors of award-winning children’s book illustrator David Wiesner gets a terrific exhibit at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (1130 State St.), and rightly asks if his dreamy surrealism is just as valid as any “fine” artist. One of my favorite SBMA shows from years back was its collection of children’s book illustrations, and so this is a welcome return. Features originals from Caldecott Medal winners “Tuesday”, “The Three Pigs”, and “Flotsam”. Opens Sunday, January 29, and runs through May 14.

THE KITCHEN THAT STEALS YOUR HEART

When you take care of your staff, they take care of you. Chef Ramon has a gentle soul; you can tell from his team’s synergy. A kitchen of love.

Chef Ramon worked as a sushi chef at Arigato for several years. Exquisite knife skill.

Corazon Cocina is the heart of the Public Market

B

efore moving to Santa Barbara, I lived in San Diego where taco shops are in every corner. And I have a best friend named Megan, whose Snapchat is @tacosandtiaras. So imagine the amount of tacos and Mexican food we had between the two of us, both in San Diego and Mexico. And the verdict comes when I see her closing her eyes while she eats tacos, that means it’s good – and then, “Christina, that was the bomb.” Six months ago, both of our lives changed. Here comes Corazon Cocina, right here in Santa Barbara. A lot of people already know about Corazon Cocina in Public Market, but I had to do my own shout-out. America, we have one of the best Mexican restaurant in the country, thanks to chef Ramon Velazquez. I always say, chefs either have it or they don’t. Good chefs are born with it. That energy, love, authenticity and creativity. Chef Ramon has them all. We meet at my familiar seat at the Public Market. Chef Ramon, who has a gentle soul, talks quietly about his passion, journey, and food. And I can’t help but eyeing the food passing by. (His cuisine is oversaturating my Instagram.) Although his voice has a calming effect, I’m dying to eat. Okay, so about the chef… Chef Ramon, originally from Guadalajara, worked at Arigato as a sushi chef for more than eight years and mastered his skill with fish and plating. But growing up in a family-owned food business back home, he was craving for his roots, the food he grew up with. He wanted to find soul in what he was making. That led him to open a popup restaurant around town featuring delicious Mexican food. You probably heard of the line out the door to get in his pop up. Word of mouth spread to the Cooking Channel and the show Taco Trip came to feature the chef and his food. The rest, is history. His new permanent location is in the Public Market.

After years of working full time for an ad agency, Christina found her passion in cooking and food. Now armed with her newfound title, “Culinary School Graduate Food Blogger,” she writes and shares her passion for food, cooking, restaurants, photography and food styling in her popular blog, black dog :: food blog. Christina’s a proud mommy of not one but two shelter dogs and lives here in Santa Barbara with her husband. She’s also an avid Polynesian dancer, beach lover, traveler, swimmer, snowboarder and most of all, a lover of anything edible and yummy. Check out her ramblings here and at www.blackdogfoodblog.com.

His food is legitimately authentic. From homemade tortillas, frijoles refritos to rotating spit roast for Al Pastor tacos. His food is vibrantly fresh; everything is local, organic and sustainable. No sour cream, no cheddar cheese. The Guacamole is the cleanest tasting Guacamole I’ve had – this may be the first time to use “clean” to describe Guacamole. His food is creatively sophisticated but that doesn’t overpower the essence. Tacos still look like tacos, still taste like tacos, still feel like the food I want to devour with hands. Sal De Mar (Ceviche) has every flavor you want: sweet, sour, crunchy, nutty, creamy, spicy, and floral. La Chicana Quesadilla – when I had first bite of this, I closed my eyes. So much flavor, you don’t even need extra salsa. Cauliflower Taco – I never thought cauliflower could lead to such tasty tacos. So fluffy and meaty. All of these are so authentic yet creative, cultured yet still something you want to grab and devour. Chef Ramon, keep doing what you are doing! You make Santa Barbara proud. 

Corazon Cocina Public Market 38 West Victoria, Santa Barbara (805) 770-7702





Ceviche. Sal De Mar: seasonal fish, watermelon, avocado, cucumber, fresco chile, pomegranate, and hibiscus aguachile

ARE WE KIDDING OURSELVES? PART 2

…I

t occurred to me how many times childless women are asked when they are having kids, as if having kids is inevitable. The bigger question should be, why? Why do people want to have kids at all? I was curious for answers to a question many parents or soon-to-be parents may have never asked themselves. Turns out, I was right. Well, mostly. I did what good a journalist would do. I asked questions. And after speaking with a range of individuals, the responses were pretty enlightening: • A 36-year-old woman who does not want kids: “I think a lot of people have kids thinking it will immediately make them happy. Many kids are raised with this unfair expectation and are then responsible for their parents’ happiness.” • My mom: “I knew since I was 10 I wanted a family, a Leave It to Beaver life. My mother worked several jobs to keep us five kids fed and it was a hard. I made a vow to myself that I would be the best mother possible. The type of mom that my mother didn’t have the chance to be.” • An 18-year-old woman: “I am an only child, so I feel the pressure to have kids and carry on the family name.” • Early 40s, mom of two: “I guess I felt some familial and friend pressure. I didn’t want to be left out from the people I relate to. And basically, it’s just what you [do] after getting married.” • Almost 60, dad to three adult children: “I did it because my wife wanted to have kids.” • A spiritual practitioner, dad to two adult children: “The experience of children is a great practice of self-control.” • A spiritual practitioner, mom to three adult children: “To fill a maternal need.” • Mid-40s woman, artist, no kids: “I wanted to give myself more room to create. Age 35 and up is a precious time for a woman to harness her creative energy.” • A 30-year-old mother to a 1-year-old: “To feel needed. To have someone who literally depends on you for survival.” •A 28-year-old pregnant woman: “We talked about it and both agreed we wanted a family.” •A 31-year-old woman trying to get pregnant: “I think it boils down to wanting to have a reason, motivation, or inspiration to be the very best person I can be. To love someone more than I ever dreamed possible and to have my heart ache from that love. I also just f*cking love babies.” All valid reasons, but the last one got me thinking. Why do we need kids to have motivation, inspiration, or a reason to be the best person we can be? Can you imagine if we’re able to break through this internal barrier of monkey-mind character assassination and actually love, protect, be kind, and patient to ourselves the way we would for a small child? A side effect could be the end of bitterness toward one another. How incredible the thought. But it almost seems impossible, which is strange considering the only people we can truly control is ourselves. We are, in a sense, a slave to our creation. We’re born human and just have to figure it out the best we can. Parents and kids alike. I have respect to those who put forth the effort to raise children. It’s gotta be harder nowadays with distractions of technology and our social climate. And we can’t forget those without a choice. The ones who desperately want children and aren’t able. There’s sensitivity surrounding that. But maybe living without kids is just as difficult in its own way. To have no distraction and work directly with ourselves on the daily. There are more 20- and 30-something women who are choosing to not only not get married but forgo kids all together. For me, I’m on the fence. To have or to have not. Where will the regret lie? Maybe there will always be a sense of “What if?” either way. It’s true, we are progressing into a new type of existence. An existence that chooses non-traditional ways of life, one that is more forgiving toward individual choices. Hopefully, through this progression, we each become more compassionate. And able to express compassion toward the child within us all.
