Communing With My Inner Hippy...

The Teenager at Age 8

I never got to attend a Dead concert but  I DID see the Jerry Garcia Band in concert.  I have never worn a pair of Birkenstocks, though I own a hemp braclet, a toe ring and could probably dig a prairie skirt out of my closet if I felt the need.  I prefer herbal tea to any other herbal stimulant.  I like the smell of patchouli but not on my skin.  I am not a fan of dreadlocks, they look stinky to me.  I do go barefoot in the summer and don't mind getting dirty.  I have never owned a Volkswagen, but I did have a Subaru in the early 90's.  I recycle, I compost and do my best not to waste anything. 

                                       

I grow my own herbs and vegetables but I am not 100 percent organic and am not a vegan or vegetarian by anyone's imagination.  

I raise my own chickens for eggs and meat.

                                       

I hang out with goats.

                                        

I believe in love.  I also believe in personal responsibility and being rewarded with the fruits of your labor for a hard day's work.  I believe in charity but I believe that everyone needs to do their share. 

Is there such thing as a sort of conservative, kind of liberal, tree hugging, meat eating, capitalist, pro-choice, polyester wearing, hippy who sews her own clothes? 

Peace,
Lisa

  1. YEP, BUT I DONT HANG OUT WITH GOATS, ALTHO I WOULD IF I COULD. I DO WEAR BURKS, THEY ARE MY SHOE OF CHOICE. I GREW UP IN THE BAY AREA IN THE 60S AND 70'S, DIDNT WEAR A BRA (NOW I WISH I HAD LISTENED TO MY MOTHER) YES, SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT!! I WORE GRANNY DRESSES, DAISES IN MY HAIR, LONG EARINGS AND JESUS SANDLES. I CUT COLLAGE TO GO HANG OUT IN SAN FRAN AND SAUSILITO. THOSE WERE THE DAYS, BUT THAT BEING SAID.....SO IS TODAY. GREAT POST LISA, CHAR

  4. Hi Lisa....went to Burnham yesterday. The sheer volume of "stuff" they have is amazing. The outdoor auction alone took 2 hours. We had a great time, and got some great deals. Hugs, Kathleen

  5. If there is such a thing (except for the sewing her own clothes bit), I'll check that box.
