Quotation of the Week
This we know: All things are connected like the blood which unites one 
family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the 
Earth, Man did not weave the web of life. He is merely a strand on it. 
Whatever he does to the web he does to himself.- Chief Seattle

Stories of the Week
Butterflies: Metaphors of Transformation by Hyatt Carter - This article will 
explore what I see as two intertwining themes of the butterfly metaphor: one 
stemming from that branch of biology which studies insects, and the other 
deriving from meteorology, the study of weather patterns. The latter theme is 
called the Butterfly Effect.  Please see  www.hyattcarter.com/butterflies.htm
Monarch Visit Before Grandfather's Passing - My grandfather had a stroke and 
was in a coma. I was really sad and went to pick wild flowers for my 
grandmother. One of the flowers had a catepillar on it   So I left him on there and set 
it on her back porch. More at

This Week's Links
Say No To Torture!  Torture is immoral, ineffective, and makes a mockery of 
civilization. The United States Congress is currently trying to write a law 
that would legalize torture and put those who commit such crimes, and the law 
that justifies them beyond the reach of any court.  Is this what you want? Is 
this the America you dream of? If not, contact your Senators and representative 
NOW before its too late. Call them toll-free at 1-866-808-0065 and make your 
voices heard.  Please see video at

embodying our personal and collective exploration.  When we rest in our Essence, 
spontaneous creative expression naturally arises effortlessly. No prior art 
making experience is necessary. The only requirement is an open heart! Themes 
will include relationships with self, other humans and nature. (CEUs Available

Hummingbird Hill Nursery and Garden is devoted to healing the planet through 
learning to live in peace and harmony with all beings.  We believe that 
nurturing wildlife in the garden is a big step towards healing ourselves, and the 
planet we live on.  We grow nectar and larval plants for butterflies, 
hummingbirds and other critters.  We garden organically, and have learned that balance 
is the way to have a beautiful garden.  Beauty and love are the great healers 
and they are in abundance in the wildlife garden.

Our gardens and nursery are for healing, spiritual healing, physical healing 
and emotional healing.  It is through deep relationship with nature that we 
can become whole.

Sept. 30 & Oct. 1  2:30 pm           SF Mime Troupe's GodFellas - Santa Cruz

Imagine a nation where religious fervor runs hot, and faith rhetoric runs 
hotter. Where belief has replaced reason, and where Liberty and Justice play a 
broken second fiddle to an all powerful, omniscient and omnipresent 
military-industrial God complex. That's the nation Reverend C.B. De Love wants. And that's 
also the nation where shy civics teacher Angela Franklin finds herself. But 
in her struggle to stop the coming Theocracy will Angela go too far? In her 
zeal to destroy the opiate of the masses, will she make a religion out of her 
anti-religion, and join the ranks of the Gangsters for God? Or will she see the 
folly of blind faith in anything - even the Constitution - and return to 
Reason? 

SAN LORENZO PARK, Dakota Avenue (downtown), Santa Cruz
Show 3 pm
