Smile Re: The 1960's and the Hippie Phenomena.

Where I live, on the Central Coast of California, there are a lot of young people who are the exact stereotype of "Hippies". It's an on-going phenomenon. Marijuana itself became associated with the "Hippie Movement", and has become nearly, if not entirely, mainstream.

Re: The 1960's and the Hippie Phenomena.

P.S. There is an old saying... well, nearly as old as I am... "Don't give 'dope' the credit"
We weren't all pot smokers.... not by habit, anyways... in fact I just had my first toke in about a year a couple of days ago.
It does free up ones thinking at times... some would say that it cause the mind to "trip"... depends on the individual.
I've yet to buy it legally... old habits die hard, eh?

Was there during my roaming days, but not near it now.

Remembering when it was 2 years in jail or enlisting in the military for the possession of even a small amount of herb, I had a strange feeling when I bought some legally for the first time.

I have an old friend from grade school days that spends the Summer months renting beach gear under the pier at Avila Beach... I visited that beach for only the first time in 2013. It's a most lovely beach and, I figure, probably the Northernmost of Calif. beaches suitable for swimming.
The only thin I miss not living in southern Calif. nowadays are the magnificent beaches and getting to surf.
I am a bit too old to do any board surfing anymore but I would love to be body surfing a breaker at Malibu, at Santa Monica, or at Zuma right now.

If you're ever up my way [Orangevale/Folsom], give me a call... aa shout out... and we''l get together and hoist a glass of cheer, or a cup of joe, and we can talk of cabbages, and kings, and the stars above.
MY TREAT...!

David: Steven Gaskin's farm, what a blast from the past.
"Hippy" was absolutely a slam.
Grace Slick rejected it, describing her contemporaries as disenfranchised intellectuals, and I'd have to agree.
