I have been away on shoots for a while but have landed for a minute. I have really missed some of you! Terrible sights to behold in Haiti but it's
over now and I'm back home/ATS. Okay, to the point, because I am too verbose. I was born in a very ugly time in American History. I was born past
1965 - but before 70. I'm between 30 & 35, fair enough? A true southern belle can't be caught telling of her age! I would be scorned by my mentors.
Now, to why I post. I am asking my elders here - people who actually were a genuine hippie, to school me on the movement - in anyway you are willing
to share. I want to know everything! Nothing is too little or too much.
You know who you are. I don't. So if you were part of the movement and would like to share anything with me regarding it... I'd be forever grateful.
I consider myself well-read concerning the topic, as it has always felt so very close/right/dejavu'ish. Books are wonderful and I'm always in the
process of reading one, however, nothing beats word of mouth! Nothing!
If you were a member of the movement, will you please enlighten me?
I thirst for knowledge of a culture I feel a part of when I wasn't even born yet. I feel so very connected to the entire movement - that oddly, I
feel as if I was there. Crazy as it sounds - in my heart... I know I was there! Maybe if you and I were so inclined to believe we die, then are reborn
- that could be the case here. Sure feels it. I just came STRAIGHT BACK within 5-10 yrs. Its too familiar and always has been. This has been a feeling
I have carried all of my life. I feel as if I am grounded, well rounded and good, spiritually. But, this is ONE thing I just CAN'T put down or get at
one with, cant bury it. Maybe learning more will help me? I don't feel like I am getting my point across. :bnghd:
No interest in hearing of your trip to Woodstock, lived at Moms but protested as long as the weather was nice! That's a poser. UNLESS it provides me
with more knowledge of movement. NO POSERS PLEASE.
I'd love to speak with those committed enough to live in communes!
So, being born at this time, I can be fairly sure - from my research thus far - I was not a planned child. HA! The world was in such turmoil. How in
hell could anyone be thinking of bringing a baby into it? Unless perhaps my people weren't in that mindset? Life was probably ok on the reservation -
away from the concrete jungles and protesters being beaten in the head. I was born on the Reservation during that time so perhaps I was planned. The
tribe may have simply not seen things to be as horrific as society had become. Who Knows! Doesn't really matter but, it is something I have found
myself thinking about as I get older. :bnghd:
I look so forward to Y'alls response. I don't make threads (see history lol) so please know this is something I'm really trying to figure out -
connect the dots - or just stop feeling that connection so that I can put this down. Or make the connection so I can fill in that 1% of me that I'm
not able to sort out. That is why I bring it to you. XOXO
