Hippy Crafts on Pinterest

I don’t frequent Pinterest as much as I did over the holiday, I’m sure to start heading there now that spring has sprung and my garden beds are still empty. I love all the real cool eco gardening ideas, but I don’t know if I’m quite ready yet to have an herb garden on my bicycle.

Love, Magic, Miracles

There’s not many hippie communes left in the world and as Andrew Jacobs of The New York Times wrote that, contrary to popular misconceptions, “most communes of the ’90s are not free-love refuges for flower children, but well-ordered, financially solvent cooperatives where pragmatics, not psychedelics, rule the day.”[1] There are many contemporary intentional communities all over the world, a list of which can be found at the Fellowship for Intentional Community.[2]

One of those is the Findhorn Foundation community who is celebrating their 50th anniversary year with a Love, Magic, Miracles conference to explore and celebrate the spiritual truth that love is the greatest power on earth.

Findhorn Foundation community is an experiment in conscious living, a learning centre and an ecovillage to read more visit them HERE.

Peter, Puff and Me

Peter Yarrow and Me

Just a quick post with a random photo of me hanging on stage with Peter as he sang Puff the Magic Dragon and a set of other greats, crazy it’s been something like 19 years since I last saw Peter, Paul and Mary perform at Artpark up in Lewiston, NY.,  he included a tribute song for his beloved friend Mary, there were tears, smiles and 100 kids he inspired to help changed the world, I even got a hug and kiss from him along with a signed copy of his Puff The Magic Dragon pop-up book. Peter was a hippie, is a hippie and continues to express his views on peace, love and happiness, all and all it was a powerful evening!

Dream Catchers

Dream Catcher Lore:

Native Americans believe that the night air is filled with dreams both good and bad. The dream catcher when hung over or near your bed swinging freely in the air, catches the dreams as they flow by. The good dreams know how to pass through the dream catcher, slipping through the outer holes and slide down the soft feathers so gently that many times the sleeper does not know that he/she is dreaming. The bad dreams not knowing the way get tangled in the dream catcher and perish with the first light of the new day.
