Hey Y'all

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. haha

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

Not really, as if born in 70, you'd be 40, so you're over 40, but we'll give you 30 if you like...

I too, missed out on the movement...but I have some good friends who are certainly living that same life... My advice, go to a "Burning Man" event, and it's like the 70's never left... Google it, and you'll see what I mean...

Well,good luck on finding any on this site!

They're all VERY old now,if still they're still alive.

Most of the ones I knew when I was young are either dead,so senile from all the drugs they ingested/inhaled or have copped out and are rich living the life of luxury and hiding the fact they were part of the movement.

When I came out to the early 70's as a young man I knew a few living in the mountains around here.

They were good at growing organic plants before that got to be big business.

Maybe they all moved to Humboldt county up near the Oregon border.

Might try attending a "The Dead" concert and you may run into some there.

Oh waitress.....I'll have what he's having!

A wise friend once told me, "Don't accept food from hippies..." (seriously, I do actually have a friend who told me this once...)
