REM August 2014 Cover

“Art and performance transcend the concept of entertainment. They offer another way to address ideas. In my opinion, the weakest use of the art form is self-expression. The best use is seeing theater as a platform to discuss and navigate ideas beyond self-interest—to put us in front of issues we can’t reconcile. When kids sing through an idea, they get to places and develop a skill set beyond what’s taught in the industry. SPACE’s techniques create critical thinkers. They push issues but leave room for people to think for themselves.” Andrew Kircher, teacher at SPACE (School of Performing Arts and Cultural Education)

That quote just knocks me out. It is perspicacious, sagacious, and as zippy as the school it’s written about! The article in this month’s issue of Real Estate Magazine takes us “over the hill” to our county seat, Ukiah, where two far-seeing women founded a performing arts school many years ago, which has become a remarkable institution that supports hundreds of kids in their creativity, fearlessness, and critical thinking skills. It’s such an inspiring article and I feel really proud to have it in our pages this month.

Pick up your copy of Real Estate Magazine at all the usual places all over the county.

Find out what’s on the market, what’s in escrow, and what looks enticing while you learn little-known facts about the incredible, illustrious place we live. Mendocino County really is so great, don’t you think? We live here in Paradise with the most interesting, brilliant, creative people. How lucky we are!

REM 660 Cover_01

Two stories to add to your “Who Knew Department” file cabinet…Jim Tarbell writes about the long and very GREEN history and future of our county’s public transportation system. Since 1976, the MTA has quietly been providing inexpensive alternatives to driving around in your own buggy. Now, with a fleet of forty-nine vehicles, serving over 311,000 riders, and traveling over 745,000 miles last year, the MTA is geared to fulfill their mission “To provide safe, courteous, reliable, affordable and carbon-neutral transportation services.” The tall order is bolstered by having received a five million dollar grant to build a zero-net-energy maintenance building. Read all about it in REM today! 

On a totally unrelated subject, the south coast, for the last eleven years, has hosted a wonderful, weeks-long music festival with the totally coastal name of the Sonoma-Mendocino Coast Whale and Jazz Festival. This year, the festival migrates north all the way to Little River, the first time it’s ventured north of Elk. The musical lineup looks scintillating, and it’s all here for you to discover in this month’s issue of REM.

Of course, it’s called “Real Estate Magazine” and guess what the main event is: yep…REAL ESTATE! Find out what’s moving for April. Maybe your dream house will show up.

Pick up your copy soon, or you can read it here…And thank you for appreciating Real Estate Magazine! It’s a local community resource like no other!

REM 659 Cover_01

I’m very excited that Gowan Batist and Virginia Loperena put their heads and hearts together to write the latest article for Real Estate Magazine. The subject is Noyo Food Forest, and it is… well, let me gush: wonderful. These insanely hard working, savvy young women are food pioneers here on the coast, doing things nobody is doing anywhere else, effectively crusading for a sustainable local food system, and all the while making agriculture look cool to high school students. Noyo Food Forest is amazing. Wait till you read all about it: NFF.

You can pick up a copy of Real Estate Magazine on the north and south coast, all. along the Anderson Valley 128 Route, and inland. Look for them at any post office, Harvest in FB, all Realtors’ offices, and many inns, motels, and stores all over the county. Or you can read it online here.

REM January 2014 CoverWith interviews covering five interesting (well, who’s not around here?) local business owners AND a great piece on “Propreneurs” by Cynthia Wall, this month’s Real Estate Magazine is crammed with ideas and inspirations to kick off our new business year. For instance, I love what Tracey Coddington had to say about selling real estate: “Real estate is about as dynamic as life can be. In the real estate field. one is supporting people in some of the largest decisions they will make in their lives — it involves all of the pieces of their life: family, home, work and finances, hopes and dreams.” The way we frame our businesses and their goals and intentions actually makes our work deeper, richer, and more meaningful.

I had a coach once (Bill Rodgers) who told me my design work and printing and my card line “supported people from cradle to grave” …He meant that from birth announcements, to business cards, wedding invitations, to memorial cards, and everything in between, people need and use my various services for the celebrations in their lives, for connection and communication in their lives. That simple assessment really changed the way I held my work. It’s all true.

I have emails from people who actually got married because of one of my Ladies Who Lunch cards (not too many more of those left but I have sold probably close to a half a million of them!) One couple nicknamed their baby Pinkie Lou after one of my cards…you never can tell when you are going to make a difference in someone’s life through your particular “genius,” which is what this month’s REM is all about. Last month’s issue, “Community Can-Do” — about local charities, was a huge success. We couldn’t keep our boxes full! This community is just so full of caring, dedicated, beautiful, and effective people that it’s kind of mind boggling. (If you missed this one, you can see it online, along with all our last issues here.)

Thank YOU for making Real Estate Magazine a part of your life too, and for telling your friends that the name of the magazine doesn’t exactly tell the whole story of what the magazine represents in our community. Every reader makes a difference, and we so appreciate hearing that you enjoy the magazine and read it all the time (and we hear this a lot!). Every time you buy something from one of our advertisers, you are helping all of us make a difference, too. Every time you take out an ad, it’s not just an ad for your business, but a support for what REM is able to do in keeping our whole area aware of what fabulosity we get to live inside here on the coast. It’s a big, huge win-win situation, and thank you.

Starting the New Year with a lot of gratitude and much excitement for what’s coming in the next months. Next issue, Brendan McGuigan will tell you all about the amazing Stornetta Lands. Stay tuned!

Cover art for October issue of REM

Cover art for October issue of REM

This month’s cover story is about Mendocino County as a Healing Destination, not just about the healers who live and work wonders here, but the place itself, which has its own form of healing benefits. We are so lucky to live in a place with such beauty, community, and abundance. Hypnotherapist Alena Guest wrote the article and included brief interviews with several local practitioners of non-traditional (to Westerners) medicine. One of these was our beloved Antonia Lamb, her last interview before her sudden death last month, in which she gives an astrological key to Mendocino itself.

You can find copies all over the county, at post offices, Realty offices, motels and inns, grocery stores and many local retail places up and down the coast, inland and in the Anderson Valley. Or you can read it here.
