Did you see this, Nepenthes? - written in May this year (no. 43 in my catalogue)

Nostalgic trip - following Nepenthes in spotting the hippie

Take me back to hippieland,
the promised land of happiness and joy,
where all were rebels and authority was dead
with beauty reigning sunnily alone with flying colours,
spreading colourfulness everywhere,
tainting all humanity in psychedelic splendour,
drowning noise and ugliness in music and of fantasy
encouraged by intriguing spices like of drugs
which only was a brilliant explosion
of creativeness and of imagination,
promising a better world for everyone,
for all the future and for all humanity,
with shining innovative dresses
and adornments, jewellry galore
with earrings and the longest hair in history
and no limitation to expansion.
So let me dwell there in the land of nowhere
everywhere in every age,
where beauty is the queen
and fantasy is law
and pure creativeness is all religion
with no end to tolerance and universal love.

I lived there too. I just don't think any other generation was as unique as ours. Just look at the music, my kids love it. It's all 60's and 70's again. Clothes, colors, jewelry...getting all recycled. I was in a department store and was looking at the clothing and accessories. I just kept thinking--i have worn this before! I'm not comlaining. I love it! : ) kathy
