Rivers Cuomo has no problem admitting that he sometimes still feels like a teenager. "Maybe I haven't matured in some ways that other 40-year-olds have," the Weezer frontman said in a recent interview. "Or maybe I'm more willing to honor those immature voices inside myself that other 40-year-olds aren't. " He certainly isn't very age-appropriate when performing, which is a good thing for a rock star, even one who's now married with a kid and a degree from Harvard. Back in August, Weezer played the headlining spot in the concert series attached to the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach.

Lynda Guber's days sizzled with stress. Her husband, Peter, ran Sony Pictures. Everyone wanted favors. She had to change her life. Her first step: "I decided I would drop everything that didn't serve my dharma." When a yogi anointed her with the name of a Buddhist goddess, Tara, she took it as her own. Empowered by this beloved and compassionate deity, Tara Guber began to move down the spiritual path that led to the creation of her personal refuge, "a place to get away to serve the spirit."

For hours, the meditation hall at Lu Mountain Temple in the south San Gabriel Valley hummed with muted chatter and camera shutter-clicks. Around the room, glass display cases held translucent urns and miniature versions of dome-shaped Buddhist shrines, or stupas, delicately arranged on burgundy-colored cloth. The urns and stupas held thousands of bright pearl-like crystals believed to be relics of the Buddha, his relatives and his disciples. A wide-eyed Julie Nguyen of Orange County stepped sideways in front of one of the display cases.

On Dec. 21, the night of the winter solstice, the fire and high winds that destroyed thousands of acres of forest and chaparral swept over the hilltops east of Ojai occupied by Meditation Mount and the Ojai Valley School. The local Fire Department and units from all over Southern California set up operations in the parking lot of Meditation Mount to continue battling the flames. At about 4 a.m., as the fire was surrounding the Ojai Valley School on the next hill above Meditation Mount, our residents were told to evacuate.

Father Michael Kennedy looks out at the rows of heads bowed in prayer, the tattooed necks and drab institutional garb of Central Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles. He peers into young hearts wounded by violence and bearing charges of murder, robbery and drug-dealing. Here in these dark, treacherous places, he feels the presence of God.
