I'm sorry this comm's silent - what promise it had! :/ [Dec. 12th, 2010|01:35 am]
Come Freak Freely With Us

[Current Music |Regina Spektor]

Anyone still here?

My overall plan: I have 2½ years of school left (I just started this fall). During this time I will sell & give away almost all of my belongings - I'll keep only my favourite clothes, crafting supplies, a few books & CDs, Monkees DVDs, and memories (diaries, the mug I always used at my late granny's place, and the like). What I can't/don't want to take with me, will be left at either of my parent's; I'll pack a backbag and start living from Rainbow Gathering to a Rainbow Gathering. (I'm in Europe; there's at least one small Gathering every month somewhere.) I know I won't always want to be in a Rainbow camp, but leaving's ok - better, actually, so Rainbow won't lose its shininess.

Short-time plan: Next summer, right after school is over, I and my brother will hitchhike to/in Europe. In July, he'll go to the European Gathering in Iberia while I'll head back to Finland to the Finnish Rainbow Gathering (because my school starts too early, pfft).

Shorter-time plan: We're hitchhiking to Denmark in about a week to spend Christmas and New Year's Eve in Ting, a Northern European Gathering! <3

(I also got the crazy idea in the middle of a night that I'd sell/donate my stuff next spring and move into a teepee/winter tent to the countryside where my school is. :D I guess it wouldn't be too handy, I mean what of my sewing machine and glue gun and stuff - but some day I'll live like this, for as long as I feel like it.)

Love is a burning thing And it makes a fiery ring Bound by wild desire I fell into a ring of fire [Dec. 18th, 2008|10:47 am]

The bass is pumping through my soul All I can see is his eyes A complete stranger, having never spoken a word, we're still in the same vibe We are not moving to the music The music is moving us These are the moments I live for

What does it mean to you [Dec. 14th, 2008|12:02 am]
Come Freak Freely With Us

I have been attending rainbow gatherings for a few years, and I have considered myself a "hippie" for several years longer than that. However, I've been thinking about what the word hippie means.

I look at the hippies from the sixties, and I don't feel nostalgic, or like I missed out. I don't feel like I imitate them, and I don't feel like I have a lot of similarities. I look at the back to the land movement that emerged out of the late 60s and well into the 70s and there I do see a lot of similarities. It seems to me the back to the land movement achieved a great deal of lasting good, and they did not fall back into mainstream society at the rate the San Fransisco hippies did. They stayed true to their roots and their ideals much better.

How about you all? Do you see being a hippie in the terms of the 60s or do you see it in other terms? Is it about going to protests? Is it about living green? Is it about being a nomad? Is it burning man or rainbow gatherings? Is it in sex, or in music?

It saddens me greatly to see young people reminisce about the sixties when there is a "hippie" movement today, it's just different. I for one am glad we don't have a Vietnam, I'm glad we don't have the racial hostility we had. I am not going to sit around and cry that Led Zepplin no longer make music.

March in November [Nov. 18th, 2008|10:41 pm]
Come Freak Freely With Us


Saturday was so much fun. We showed up in volunteer park shortly after 10:30. You could hear the music all the way across the reservoir. You could see the people gathered already. There were a few hundred people there already. Some were gathered around the sign making booth others were just mingling.

A few groups went through the crowd getting emails and passing out post cards to go to the capitol.

After a while more and more people showed up. Everyone was so alive. The speakers finally started. They had lots of politicians including Mayor Nichols and members of the local Religious community. The speechs were so beautiful. Mayor Nichols declared it Marriage Equality day.

Then the march started. Everyone SLOWLY filed out of the open feild and into the streets. There were so many people. I can't describe how good it felt. The signs people carried were all so interesting. There was one I really enjoyed. It was black and white, two people kissing. It said "In 1966 my parents couldn't marry either." That one really stuck with me.

The march went on. Heading towards Broadway with cheers at all those who came out to support the march. Cheers went up so often between the chants. It was exciting to be excited about something. Finally we rounded the turn towards Broadway proper and the crowd of people streached so far, I tried to jog ahead to get some pictures and couldn't catch the begining of the march. At one point we had all of Cap. Hill blocked and most of down town. The News said there were about 6,000 people. I have to agree.

My Husband (</a></font></b></a>kane_blaireau ) and my friend Alex (</a></font></b></a>blacklionessluv ) were there with me. It felt good to have people I care for there sharing that with me.

There was a moment when we stopped on the bridge between Capitol Hill and Downtown. It was amazing... all the people. Then there was the naked lady at the Apartments at 800. Lol We all cheered for her too. As we got closer to West Lake you could see everyone stopped to watch the march. They lined the balcony at West Lake and stood here and there and watched as we all piled in. The Moral "minority" was there too. The shouted their hate speech and we shouted louder. There was suprisingly few of the opposition. Once everyone was in West Lake we all listened to them rally the troops.

I want to March on Olympia. I want to go with them. March 12, in Olympia they are going to march on the capitol. I want to be there. I just kept saying... "We have to do this. When our children ask... we can say we stood up for this... we stood up for love."

I took lots of pictures. I can't wait to get caught up on bills and get them developed.

Then I was too pooped to go to Mali (</a></font></b></a>deliciouspear ) and Jordan's (</a></font></b></a>inventionsleeps ) party. Sorry!!!

Someone on my friendlist posted this video, and I thought I'd share because it's hilarious, and has to do with a recent entry in this community by innocentvice.

Enjoy it, my friends :)

Protesting and the Dogs come barking [Nov. 8th, 2008|01:27 am]
Come Freak Freely With Us


I have a friend that knows a guy who's friends were arrested and beaten at a protest of Prop 8 in Califonia. I know that like three degrees... but look at his blog. It's disturbing.

theinated  was lucky to have been sparred. But this is just what happened during the protests of the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Era.
