We were free, free from all the political lies that had been handed out over the years. We hated war, we wanted peace but most all we wanted truth.
Truth from our government, parents, professors and each other. We wanted a better world for everyone.
It wasn't all about drugs though I would be liar if I were to say we didn't do our share and more. But we had a code, we wanted truth, love and
peace to be the priority in our lives, not just for us, but for future generations. We shared everything, our food our clothes, our lovers and our
weed and wine. We wanted to buck the status quo, god forbid if anyone even resembled our parents or anyone of authority.
We reflected all this in our lifestyle, our music and our dreams of the future. But reality is a b... . We couldn't keep crashing at other peoples
apartments, the communes were constantly getting scrutinized and shut down by authorities even our co-ops were becoming suspect and we couldn't live
on love, it didn't pay the bills.
Slowly the dream faded, hard drugs took over such as meth and heroine and for most of us we moved on orgot married had children and once again joined
society because we had responsibilities, children and jobs. We discovered Utopia doesn't come free.
I don't believe that time can be replicated, those that tried in the 80's couldn't bring back what had been, everything has it's season and ours
had forever changed. But I will tell you true, I would not ever exchange my time in the 60's for any other time, I feel it was a special time in our
history and I'm glad I was part of it.
